Discovering iL 13.12.2010



Hailing from the vast plains of Illinois, USA, we are excited to announce a new addition to the Error Broadcast family: iL.
Not much is known about this young cat besides the record he will release with us in the beat tape series is all about love and despair. Unfortunately, in this very order.

apoLLo1ne3hree, which is the enigmatic name of his tape, consists of 16 tracks at less than 20 minutes. Irrespective of the beat tape format, 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. Consider yourself: warned.
