Master of removing the expected restrictions of his chosen musical style, the Aussie hip hop artist never ceases to excite through experimental production techniques and excellent collaborative choices. This time around, Illy has worked alongside Californian vocalist Marko Penn to create an electro-pop infused rap song that blurs the lines of typical genre specifications.
Directed by Mark Alston, ‘You Say When’ sees Illy emerge from a body of water, walk into a trance-infused nightclub and engage in a seductive bedroom scene with an unnamed blonde woman. Continuously stepping it up, the locally sourced talent has found a way to move his music into a more accessible area of the country’s hip hop scene.
