Beat driven producer illstrtd is from Melbourne town and he’s doing some pretty sweet chopped up smooth r’n’b. Australia has such an incredible beats scene already, and this dude, putting forward a more straight r’n’b/ hip hop groove is definitely a name to watch out for.
I got ‘Violet Sunset’ below, a dreamy escape perfect for a pretty excellent Sunday afternoon here in Melbourne. Make sure you check out his soundcloud though for three other tracks, all pretty freakin killer.
illstrtd is working on his first proper release, an EP, hopefully due out in the next coupla months. Big things!
