Not much is known about this young producer besides the record he released with us in the beat tape series is all about love and despair. Unfortunately, in this very order.
iL is sketching atmospheres and ambiences rather than beats. His music is adventurous and the opposite of a comfort listen. Random like shooting stars, his beats fly into the black, not following any common metric patterns. Synthesizer textures interfere with twisted vocal samples, once sick, once bitter-sweet and heart-rendering. Dub, Hip Hop, Ambient, Soul – you know about these styles but you have not heard iLs mutant combination.
Appears on EBCTP003
