Illyus & Barrientos - Stranded EP

We are delighted to welcome Glasgow’s finest, Illyus & Barrientos, back to Love & Other for the release of their ‘Stranded EP’.

Proving to be a formidable duo, Illyus & Barrientos’ diverse backgrounds make for a scintillating approach to electronic music, with a history in hip hop colliding with an enthusiasm for classical music, resulting in emotive and alluring bass-ridden tracks with unforgettable vocal hooks. It’s no wonder their releases have remained popular with the likes of Skream, Gorgon CityAmine Edge and Kry Wolf.

With strong support from Pete TongB.Traits and Rob da Bank on BBC Radio 1Mistajam on BBC 1Xtra and Subsoul on Kiss to name a few for their ‘Ballin’ EP’, we follow up with ‘Stranded’ – warm and rolling, whilst also being delicate and cautious. This is accompanied by the deep bass-heavy ‘Guided Light’, which manages to balance a haunting aesthetic with more than a touch of enthusiasm.

Another spectacular release to lose yourself in, enjoy Illyus & Barrientos’ ‘Stranded EP’.
