The ILLZ aka Delgis Jose Mustafa Rodriguez has just dropped this new video “Illytal” from the “In Between Video Series” which features music from the Portishead song “Strangers” from their (epic) landmark album ‘Dummy’. ILLZ’ use of this trip hop sample shows his interest in fusing this genre and others such as dubstep, chill-out and ambient with his rhymes, resulting in a creative new sound. The root of all this lies in his first project “This is…” which used progressive rock instrumentals and began garnering him major blog attention… all because he happened across a Smashing Pumpkins album which completely revitalized his love of music. I’ve been a fan since I came across his track ‘To Know Your Place In The Universe’ which is on ’03: From Gold’. Check him out.
