What artist music are you currently a fan of?
Jillimune: ODESZA. “The last goodbye” is nuts. The song is almost 3 songs in one. The way the vocal sample is fully transformed is masterful. They have also left out elements that I would’ve personally filled with other sounds which enhances the minimalism. They even made a perfect baseline for the bridge. Really planetary stuff.

Jillimune: Have not performed live as yet.
