After releasing History of Man on iTunes last year, Toronto’s ILLANGELO is back with a compilation of demos from 2010, which precede the breakout year he had as one of The Weeknd’s in-house producers on 2011′s House of Balloons:
MAR 27 2010 – I PASS THROUGH THE SLIDING DOORS OF LESTER B. PEARSON & ONTO THE CEMENT PLATFORM. A CAB DRIVER APPROACHES ME: “WHERE YOU OFF TO?” “TO THE STUDIO,” I REPLY. THAT WOULD BE A CONVERSATION I WOULD HAVE ON A BI-DAILY BASIS FOR MONTHS. ONCE AT 11AM & THE OTHER HOMEBOUND AT 5AM. 2010 WAS A CRUCIBLE; AN INFINITE SERIES OF VOICE MESSAGES; AN EMPTY E-MAIL INBOX. IT WAS A HALLWAY OF LOCKED DOORS & I DIDN’T HAVE ANY OF THE KEYS. IT WAS MY LAST SHOT AT THIS.
Stream the project after the jump.
