‘As electronic music has evolved, few veteran artists have stayed relevant. For over a decade, Ill-esha has kept ahead of the revolving door of EDM by constantly adapting her craft. She has explored every corner of bass music—from drum & bass and dubstep to glitch-hop and trap—and made it her own.
Ill-Esha’s latest album, Open Heart Surgery, evolves her style yet again. It draws on her experience as a singer and a songwriter to tell an emotional story. Her passionate vocals narrate the journey, as a river of smooth bass flows in the background.’
Into the AM sat down with ill-Esha after an energetic performance in San Diego to chat about her approach to dance music, her new album and her plans for the future.
