Mt. Eliah

At its core, good music is all about community—about bringing people together. Ben Howells, aka Mt. Eliah, has been creating musical communities on the West Coast for years. As co-producer of the Atmosphere Gathering festival, Project Intent (a community and environmentally-focused crowd-funding program) and being one third of Vancouver Island’s infamous The NakedDJs, Howells has built a small empire of groove in the middle of our Island. When he gets behind the decks, Mt. Eliah is a diverse force, sucking in cultural influences from around the world, blending them with heavy electronic beats and delivering it all with a smile for everyone on the dance floor.
