Her multi-dimensional approach spans Glitch-Hop, Dubstep and Downtempo, which has set ill-esha apart amidst some of electronic music’s most groundbreaking acts: Releases on trendsetting labels as Muti Music, Daly City, Haunted Audio, Dub Police and many more are amongst the landmarks of her career. Catching the ears of our audience with outstanding remixes for envloop NYC based artist I-Cue now debuts with his first own release. His previous artistic biography shows him as a producer of various albums since the mid 1990’s on New York´s most avant-garde electronic music label Jungle Sky / Liquid Sky. Being the first to execute Hip-Hop/Drum & Bass productions that formed the sound of “Hip Step”, he may count as one of the true originators and influences of Hip-Hop infused electronic music today. He has worked with producer/engineer Carlos Bess (who actually engineered this release), emcee T.R.A.C. (Next Level $#it) and remixed artists such as Texta, Gravediggaz, Craig G, Tasha & Cridge, Prime Mover & Chuck B. as well as a collaboration with Muffler.

A trip through time and space: In 1996 US-Drum&Bass legend Soul Slinger together with Supa MC TC Izlam (aka T-Frequency To The Love Degree) released “Zulu Music Pt.1 and 2” on his legendary label “Jungle Sky Records”, having been a platform for so many artists who made their ways into the world´s artist-elite such as A Guy Called Gerald, Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Spooky and Air Liquide, just to name a few.
On envloop 005 “Zulu Music 2011 EP” this true jewel of New Yorican Underground found it´s way into the present decade, given a treatment by it´s creator Soul Slinger and Austrian artist Hillberg. What had been anticipating “Dubstep” decades before this genre was born, now comes along as a trippy Hip Hop tune reminiscent of the sound of Stereo MC´s or Gary Clail. (mehr …)
