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 shit. 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.
