It’s funny how artists can bend and twist genres to their will, creating unique sounds that shatter the mold. That happens to be the specialty of French downtempo duo, il:lo. Today we’re pumped to bring these guys onto the site with the premiere of their forthcoming track “Ntili Ntili.”
“Ntili Ntili” introduces itself with a tranquil melody that you would believe leads to a calm, four-to-the-floor beat, il:lo flip the script. In comes the UK garage rhythm and bassline, injecting an unexpected energy into the track. As the track settles into itself, it evolves at the same time, creating a wholesome piece of art that we simply can’t get enough of.
This one comes via Future Archive Recordings, a label that has carefully focused in on an eclectic range of indie and electronic sounds. “Ntili Ntili,” will be appearing on the label’s second compilation album, but you can get the exclusive stream of the track below. Enjoy!
