|With a lust for music, and a thirst to innovate, Illy's interest in emceeing began at the age of 13. Having a rooted hip-hop background and an avid love for jungle/drum and bass, proved a positive combination: shaping a style that aims to push US drum and bass emcees to the forefront.
Moving from Baltimore, to Philadelphia proved a prosperous relocation. Linking up with the likes of Armmani, Sharpness, and Messinain, he can be heard at Diesel Boy’s infamous club night, Platinum. Mickey Finn, Dara, Sage, Dylan, Loxy, High Contrast, DJ SS, Ray Keith, Dom and Roland, DJ Rap, Ed Rush, and Skynet, are just a few acts he has preformed with.
On the production side, Illy delivers quality tracks ranging from catchy dance floor killers, to melodic, vibing jams. With a release set for Phylum recordings, and an arsenal of tracks in rotation, his production is sure to keep the crowd moving.
