Career[edit]

Illangelo released a single titled 'What The Fuss' on February 18, 2014, which features up and coming Toronto native Rochelle Jordan.[3] Earlier that month, he released a series of demos from the pre-House Of Balloons era (circa 2010) on his Bandcamp page.[4]

On May 2, 2014, Illangelo collaborated with the Sydney trio Movement on their self titled debut EP,[5] their self-described style of minimal soul in combination with Illangelo's futuristic sound created a unique texture that has since been gaining much momentum selling out their Australian tour and several dates across the USA and Europe.[6] Additionally 'Like Lust' and 'Ivory' went on receive back to back Best New Track on Pitchfork.[7][8]

Illangelo released his single 'Clockwork', featuring vocalist Phlo Finister, on May 12, 2014. Shortly after he released a video with Los Angeles filmmaker Lance Drake that is as stunning and futuristic as the original composition,[9] it has since gotten Staff Picked on Vimeo.[10]

In an interview with Earmilk on July 1, 2014, Illangelo announced that he and Phlo Finister had created a band together called Youthquaker,[11] the group's first release "Projections", containing 3 songs, was released via a BitTorrent Bundle.[12] The songs were downloaded over 900,000 times in the first week of release.[13]
