Happy Elf

New version of a Dutch classic pop song by electropop artist HAPPY ELF. Also available as iTune. More info : www.wmrecordings.com

Happy Elf is the alter ego of multi instrumentalist Jeroen Elfferich from Delft, the Netherlands. He has released more than 10 albums since 1999.

Happy Elf’s main instruments are his 2 analogue synthesizers, the Roland Juno 6 and Yamaha CS10. But we also hear electric guitar, bass guitar and drum computers. A lot of the songs are instrumental but some have vocals. Because Elferich has no beautiful voice he tries out some effects and vocal tricks.

The music of Happy Elf can be labeled as electro, but actually it is much more than that: it’s pop music made with analogue synthesizers.

Elfferich has been making different kinds of music for the last 25 years. He has been performing as a percussionist in orchestras, guitarist and lead singer in a rockband and as a drummer in jazz-, funk-, klezmer-, rock-, fusion- and cajun bands. He currently leads a reformed edition of his progressive rock/funk/jazz band Elfferich Four, whose back catalog is also available on WM Recordings.

This is a song by dutch group EARTH & FIRE, in a new version by HAPPY ELF & NINA.
