Don’t Touch Your Eyes is Elijah Minnelli’s new daily nighttime haunt. The show tries to inhabit and distract from the current madness in equal measure. The show musically meanders to all kinds of places and eras. A key focus is that of melancholic sincerity and complete absurdity. Genres range from Folk ballads to Jungle via Dub influenced music of all forms. As a music producer Elijah Minnelli blends Cumbia, Dub & UK Bass. He’s released two highly acclaimed 7 inch records via Breadminster County Council that has gained support from the likes of Steve Barker (on the wire) and the late great Andrew Weatherall. Don’t Touch Your Eyes is a collaborative project. Each show generally features a guest mix from an interesting figure in the world music and a poem from poet in residence Timothy X Flinch. Each show has purpose made artwork from up and coming exciting designers and artists.
The show airs on the Soho Radio’s Music Channel 8 – 10pm GMT.
