Elcee The Alchemist is a local artist who has mental health at the heart of his work.

Elcee The Alchemist, 21, is an underground artist living in Manchester. Originally from London, he moved up North to study Music Production at University.

He takes inspiration from experimental music such as that of XXXTENTACION, Slowthai and Mount Kimbie.

Elcee’s freeform personality is represented by refusing to conform to one sound, rather “musical alchemy”.

His recent EP Oydessy Volume I demonstrates his distinctive skill. He has developed quickly given that he only started self-teaching vocals at 19.

Despite being new to creating music, Elcee has dedicated himself to his craft. His hard work is demonstrated by his weekly Monday Mantras and Friday Freestyles on his Instagram.

His Friday Freestyles demonstrate his talent, unique wordplay and incredible flow.

His Monday Mantras discuss authenticity, accountability and self-improvement. They guide to creating a better wellbeing as well as better music.

His latest Monday Mantra is all about the recent changes he has made to better his mental health. He ends the IGTV by saying:

“I’m aware it Mental Health week, I just want to reiterate that my dms are always open for any sort of conversation. I love speaking to you, to people, to share ideas, experiences, anything.”
