Lightning In A Bottle – Artist Highlight – ill-esha

With only one week left to prepare for the legendary West coast music festival, Lighting In  A Bottle, thousands of people are getting ready to congregate and celebrate all the beauty of life through music, dance, and all other art forms, in Temecula, California.

With tons of artists to see throughout the course of the five day extravaganza, there are a few names you should put at the top of your ‘Do Not Miss’ list.  Ill-esha is definitely on that list.  Native to British Colombia, Canada, but currently living in Denver, Colorado, ill-esha has been a name in the bass music community for years now and has released music on Dub Police, Subway, Street Ritual, Muti Music, Simplify, and most recently, Gravitas Recordings.

Ill-esha captivates the crowds attention 100% when she is performing.    March 2012 I was able to catch a live performance (that I accidentally stumbled upon) at Envision music festival in Uvita, Costa Rica.  The energy from that night has stuck with me ever since.  Between DJing, singing over her own tracks,  covering genre’s from glitch-hop to midtempo to dubstep, triggering samples and playing keys,  ill-esha displays a true love for the music she makes and plays.

Below are some examples of the sounds ill-esha has been pushing for the last few years along with the title track of her new album Whiplash Recovery. 

Enjoy!
