The sweet sounds of lovestep are pervading the electronic music landscape like a wave of exotic French perfume that instantly blankets the room. But the sounds are not always sugary. The Bay Area's glitch-hop maven ill-esha
is peeling back the curtain on the darker side of the burgeoning genre; the steamy underbelly of sex and the darkness of sensuality with "Love is This." A twisting tale told in sultry echoes and grimy grooves, the cut is the result of a brief fling--though not the kind you'd expect. ill-esha explains "It's a track that I made when I babysat Antiserum's Virus synth for a week hence all the squelchy analog sounds." Who says gear can't be sexy?
ill-esha will be joining a stellar lineup of EDM superstars at the inaugural IMPULSE Music & Arts Festival
in Union Point, Georgia next week. "Love is This" is the fifth installment in the IMPULSE Music Series, featuring exclusive cuts from amazing artists on the bill. Headliners for this three-day festival taking place June 15-17 include EOTO
, Ana Sia
, and the list goes on and on.
