BIO: Resident DJ at Do Not Sit On The Furniture and Zuma Miami, Ella Romand has also shared the decks with the likes of Matthew Dekay, Nitin, Boris Werner, Tom Trago, YokoO, Talul, Henry Saiz, Navid Izadi, besides doing a live performance with classical pianist Marta Brankovich at Aventura Art Center (FL).
The French-Brazilian was brought up in a nurturing musical environment, listening from Bossa Nova to Classical music. Thanks to a natural ear, she began playing the piano at an early age, picking up songs from the radio before composing her own. Ella's love affair with electronic music began in the late '90s and early 2000s, when she was introduced to the progressive sounds of Sasha. She started exploring music production in 2005, before learning how to disk jockey.
Later that year, Ella was producing and playing at different venues in her hometown Curitiba, Brazil. In 2006, she moved to the United States to get a degree in music technology while her passion for electronic music increased. As a result, her first single "Sintaque" was released on Beatport in 2009. Originally a project for school, the track got the attention of “A Must Have” record label with its minimalistic yet melodic sounds, using sandpaper to replace snare samples and recording other objects in search for original sounds. In 2012, she released the chillout album Awakening on iTunes under the name E-romand.
Influenced by the sounds of electronic music and her classical piano background, she plays deep house with a harmonious taste. Abroad, she has performed at Black Sensation in Africa, for MTV show Popland in Bogota, Colombia, while in Miami she has played at top venues like Electric Pickle, Mansion, Spazio Nero, Casa Tua, and is a resident DJ at Zuma and Do Not Sit On The Furniture (owned by the legendary Behrouz).
