Needing very little introduction to the dance music community, Glasgow duo Illyus & Barrietos continue to pave their way towards the upper levels of dance music production royalty and subsequently radio airways with their new summer track “Supersonic”
The new single out now via Ultra Music arrives loaded with un-adulterated bass, minimal distractions and a deeply palpable feeling of summer. Bringing their lockdown studio output to the center stage ready for clubland to resume; “Supersonic” follows on from the Scottish pair’s previous disco-laced single “Dancing Hearts’ and reverts to their classic, ubiquitous approach to drums and contemporary and soulful vocals.
As an eminent pair on the global DJ scene, their original, well-travelled and energetic production style which to both the army of DJ’s that support and the enthusiastic global fans that enjoy, is as much in demand is it is instantly recognizable and is quickly making deep floor-filling house music their natural habitat.
Illyus & Barrietos’s latest vocal house offering via their signing with Ultra Music also serves as a reminder that the pair have diverse origins – Barrientos has Chilean parents and was born in America, while Illyus grew up in Frankfurt after being born in Govan. They met on Glasgow’s dance floors in 2014, building a friendship over their mutual love of the kind of unashamedly big, floor-filling modern house tunes that have since propelled them to dizzying levels of acclaim.
With previous releases on the likes of Defected, Glasgow Underground, and their Toolroom, the duo continue to be rewarded with regular support from leading tastemakers including Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Pete Tong, whilst also previously featuring as part of Radio 1’s legendary Essential Mix series.
