Dallas, TX - August brings about plenty of change. The fall season is right around the corner; students are pouring back onto school campuses; the music world starts the Q3 wave of new drops before the holidays arrive. With so much change happening, Texas-based DJ and artist El Vow is reminding everyone that summer hasn’t ended quite yet. Vow is keeping the summer heat rolling in his new animated video for his hit single La Playa!
The multi-talented El Vow is known for his production and performance skills, having worked with many of the biggest names in Christian hip hop. From Social Club Misfits, KB, to Lecrae, Vow’s musical resumé speaks for itself. With the official video for La Playa, Vow is showcasing his skills as an animator as well.
La Playa features animated versions of Vow and featured artist Halo hanging out on the beach, refusing to let go of the vibes of the summer season. CHH legend K-Drama co-produced the record with El Vow and Drama’s own avatar pops in during the visual as well.
“Animating the video was just as fun as making the song,” El Vow says. “Creativity has no ceiling.”

About El Vow
To date, El Vow has been featured in several national tours along with renowned artists such as Social Club Misfits, Derek Minor, Tedashii, KB and Grammy award winning artist Lecrae. The resume doesn’t stop there; in fact, El Vow travels extensively as a solo artist, stretching performances as far as Mexico City and New England.
It’s the solo performances that have driven El Vow to continue to raise the bar and utilize other gifts that have been otherwise hidden from the public. These talents include videography, photography, design and many others. “I don’t believe I should limit my creativity to just live performances, I’ve always enjoyed writing and recording”. El Vow began releasing exclusive music out for purchase as well as streaming, all of which carry a distinguishing style for his distinctive listeners. “I wanted to leave people with something more than just dope beats, I wanted to give them more substance” says Vow.
These hidden talents have now placed El Vow on radio rotations in several major cities across the country, a move that has positioned him outside of the box. Vow’s musical influences include Hip Hop (CHH), EDM (CEDM) and deep latin roots, which he claims to slow cook and season with faith and humor. It is no wonder El Vow continues to leave audiences hungry for more.
Although the ingredients in Vows secret recipes may seem to be requesting a slice in today’s music industry. El Vow also concentrates on other important things aside from the creative arts. “I just want love my wife and kids before anything, serve people and love them to Jesus, art is just a fun way God has allowed me to do that.”
Only time will tell if the up and coming artist will survive all the rigors of the road and the pressures of the music industry. Nevertheless, it is obvious that the young Texas Hispanic is causing panic throughout the nation and abroad. He sits on a solid foundation and owns a crate full of experience that will better equip him for tomorrow’s journey.
