Eli Epstein has been a professional DJ, engineer, and producer for 25 years. As early as high school, he was a sought after DJ whose mixtapes were Boston-area bestsellers, and he began to hone his engineering prowess at the famous Syncro Sound Studios, home of The Cars. Throughout the ’90s, he was a resident DJ at NYC hotspot APT, while working at Sony Music Studios under some of the world’s best engineers (Bob Power, Tony Maserati, Rich Keller). After relocating to LA in 2002, Epstein released the cult classic record “Silver Clouds” under the name Photocall. Licensed by Clone, it continues to be spun by tastemaking DJs worldwide. In 2006, he opened his own production and mixing studio, known in its current incarnation as The Escape Pod, working with a diverse array of clients including American Apparel, Hyperloop, Ghostly International, Kim Ann Foxman, Sfire, and The New York Times. A student of recording history and technique, Epstein utilizes an extensive and carefully curated collection of vintage outboard gear, pedals, and synthesizers, marrying retro warmth to state of the art technology.
