Idris Elba the acclaimed actor and dance music producer/dj, told Vanity Fair recently that he plans to concentrate on making dance music.
Ebla said in the interview:
“Some may think, Well, it will be the death of your acting if your music’s sh*t. I’ve dealt with the internal struggle of that over the years. So now I’m at peace and I’ve chosen: This is what I’m doing, and I’m going to do it. Some will love it and some will hate it.
The thing about making music is it’s a very consuming process. It’s very difficult to shoot a movie and then go off into the studio or make a song. It’s like trying to build a soufflé while making a brick wall.”
Elba runs his own label 7Wallace and also starred in the great and unfortunately 1-season only show “Turn Up Charlie.” In addition he has played Coachella and was a resident at Hi Ibiza along with David Guetta pre-Covid.
