Born and raised in Seattle, WA, Elliot Settle also known as “ENDR” has been involved with music since a very young age. Over the last 2 years, ENDR has made his way into the booming NW scene, and after promoting and attending shows at Foundation Nightclub, he was made an official Foundation resident DJ alongside some of the greatest artists in the city. After opening for some of his favorite artists including Virtual Riot, Trollphace, Ookay, Must Die!, Protohype, and many more, he is getting ready for his biggest set yet at the 20th annual Freaknight Festival.
“I grew up in a very musical family, my dad was a drummer, keyboardist, guitarist, and also did vocals in multiple bands throughout his young life, so naturally I was exposed to a lot of incredible music that really inspired me. After I started playing guitar and bass in elementary school, I knew that I was going to be involved with music for the rest of my life. I grew up on a lot of different genres, but I was mostly inspired by hip hop and metal music, which I think is exactly where my love for bass music came from. When I first heard Dubstep (Rusko & Caspa’s Fabriclive) back in high school for the first time, I was immediately hooked. After discovering so many incredible artists, I finally decided to attend my first massive, which was Freaknight 2010, and that night definitely changed my life forever. A year or so later, I invested in my first Macbook and controller and locked myself in my house. After endless practice, I got into playing at clubs in 2014, and I knew that I couldn’t’ stop pushing forward. Every moment on stage is magical for me, and I will never stop working to make this my full time reality.”
