Hailing from Manassas in Virginia, EOM (or Elements of Music to give him his full title) is 27 year-old producer Daniel Carey.

Raised on a diet of hip-hop, soul, funk & jazz, EOM has become somewhat of an underground phenomenon. Primarily making his name as the go-to producer for ex-Def Jam rapper Wax, videos featuring his production work have racked up over 25 million views on YouTube. He has won a Juno award (best producer for the 2010 Shad K’s ‘TSOL’ album), and has most recently collaborated with Anderson Paak – the main vocalist on the Dr Dre comeback album ‘Straight Outta Compton’ – with their track Get Along’ (also featuring Blu) from the album ‘Sunrain’ subsequently being picked up by Nike for a worldwide ad campaign.

With GQ and MTV having also using his work and counting the likes of Dumbfounded, Shad and Asher Roth as fans of his beats (as well as collaborators), it’s fair to say that EOM most definitely has the tangible beginnings of worldwide recognition.
