Dejan Dejado and Andreas Schütz, the duo who form il:lo, seem to have cracked the code on creating amazing music together. Dejado finds the samples they use, and Schütz edits and mixes them. Their latest release “Soldiner” beautifully showcases their unique style of co-creation.
This track is separated into two distinct parts. The beginning is a glimmering, golden sun-flecked downtempo vibe. The melody stretches softly across the verses, with il:lo slowly incorporating additional musical elements like wind symphonies on each iteration. Halfway through the track, however, il:lo turns the song on its head. They keep that same melody, but increase the energy and add a harder synth line. The transformative result is equal parts chill and euphoric.
This track will be out everywhere Friday. Until then, you can stream it exclusively below. Enjoy!
