At the heart of Ilan Bluestone’s debut studio LP ‘Scars’, we find memories in music and everlasting impressions!
Following up 2016’s “Bigger Than Love” and most recently, “Frozen Ground”, Ilan Bluestone has been working vigorously in the studio, preparing a musical dish of melodic dance music stunners that will be included in his debut studio long-player Scars. The album is set for release this fall on Anjunabeats. But you don’t have to wait until then to enjoy some fresh new beats!
The title track, which sees Ilan reuniting with singer/songwriter Giuseppe De Luca, is available right now for your listening pleasure! Labeled as a dubstep-trance hybrid, “Scars” takes his sound out of the traditional 4/4 world for the first time, yet retains Ilan’s flair for heartfelt melodic productions. With such a unique blending of sounds that would normally stay on opposite ends of the dance music spectrum, Ilan breaks down boundaries and reminds us that when you pour your heart and soul into the music you love, the result will make you move and groove no matter what the genre.
“Giuseppe and I started with a blank canvas for this one. I laid down some chords in the studio and Giuseppe spent some time writing lyrics with me in California. The style change happened fairly organically, there’s a lot of power in the words he wrote and I wanted the drama of the music to reflect that”, explained ilan. “I’ve always tried to make music that leaves an impression on my fans and that was the inspiration for the record and ultimately the album”.
