Elevator Suite

Elevator Suite is a 3 piece electronic pop group formed in January, 1999 by English DJ Andy Childs who specialized in easy & lounge music, his old friend DJ Paul "Robbo" Roberts, and Steve Grainger, who was working as a producer of a small recording studio in Totnes.

The group uses a mixture of rock, jazz and house. Apparent influences in their work range through the Beatles, Deodato, Esquivel, Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Pet Shop Boys, Burt Bacharach, and early Air.

Their first single was "Man in a Towel" which quickly gained popularity in the UK and was followed by two more songs ("Barefoot" and "Weekend Wonderboy"). Their first two singles were both crowned as Radio 1’s "Record of the Week", and thereafter they toured Europe in support of UK downtempo band Morcheeba.

Their debut album Barefoot & Shitfaced was released on October 25, 1999 on Infectious Records.

They released their self-titled second album on October 9, 2007 on Pure Mint Recordings. Included on this album is a cover of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby". The 2007 lineup consists of Robbo on vocals, Dan Brown on bass (formerly of Bristol chill-out pioneers Ilya), Andy Childs (vocals/tambourines/producer/arranger), Dan Moore (keyboards – has played with Cousteau, Fred Wesley, and Roni Size), and Jock (drums – an illustrator for DC Comics, his publication ‘The Losers’ is currently being developed into a Hollywood blockbuster with Jack Nicholson).

"The Wheel" was released as a single on November 26, 2007 and includes remixes by Phil Hartnoll of Orbital, and Alex Metric.
