Established in Miami in 2006 Elastic Bond infuses an uplifting sound self-described as psychedelic tropical soul. The band originally started out as a loose studio collaboration between Venezuelan producer-musician Andrés Ponce and Honduran singer-songwriter Sofy Encanto, and soon developed into a unique blend of Funk, Hip Hop, Soul and Latin written and performed in Spanish and English.
Working independently as underground artists, EB self-released two albums “Madrugada” and “Excursion” and continued honing their live show for the next couple of years around Florida, North Carolina and New York City for the 2011 LAMC Conference.
In 2013 Elastic Bond signed with Nacional Records, and released their album “Real” in the US and Japan which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Latin Alternative charts and made a few top lists of 2013 including the iTunes Hot Albums of 2013, and PRI “The World’s Top 16 albums you should have listened to in 2013”. Songs from “Real” were featured on various TV networks such as MTV, Concert Channel, PBS, ESPN, CNN, Discovery Channel, Nickelodeon, CW Networks, Univision and ABC. Selected as a “World Café Next Artist” by NPR and dubbed “Florida funk fusionists” by the LA Times, EB followed the release with some touring in cities along the East and West Coast of the US and Canada.
In 2017, the band released their latest album “Honey Bun” in collaboration with Grammy winner Adrian Quesada as co-producer. This new album presents an organic soul sound with a glaze of hip hop and it’s the band’s first vinyl release. The first single and title track “Honey Bun” debuted via Univision’s Uforia. The second single “Un Lugar” featuring rapper Ephniko was selected as Top Tune of the Day by LA’s KCRW station. Elastic Bond is scheduled to perform in the 2017 LAMC conference as well as shows in Mexico and Grassroots Festival in Ithaca, NY and Pilsen Festival in Chicago this summer. Elastic Bond collaborations include “El Paradise” Los Amigos Invisibles, “Caribe” Locos por Juana, “Oro” Palenque Soultribe and “Where we come from” Pacha Massive.
