il:lo and Frameworks

il:lo
https://www.illomusic.com

Formed over a decade ago in Prague, Dejan Dejado and Andreas Schütz of il:lo work across borders, time, and space (one lives in Berlin while the other currently lives in the south of France), sending snippets and tracks back and forth until they're happy with them.

Following on the heels of 2019's Sloh and their recent collaborations with Anjunadeep (2021 EP release Meliadi), and support tours with Parra For Cuva, Stimming, Janus Rasmussen, CloZee and Zimmer, comes the duo's latest effort Myriad. The EP gently pushes at the boundaries and expectations of what il:lo is and can be. With Myriad, the aim was to make something that still had that undeniable il:lo essence, but that pushed them slightly further into a more deep house, danceable sound.

The architecture that features on the covers of Myriad and its singles are also as integral to the project as the music itself. While sending their work back and forth between each other, they were engaged in a process of stripping out the excess so that they were left with only the most essential and emotive parts of the track; similarly, the architecture that adorns their covers is powerful in its simplicity and makes you stop and consider it from another angle. Stripping things back most often reveals their power.

"I had to learn to get out of my own way," says Matthew James Brewer, the British songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist better known as Frameworks. "Instead of going out there chasing after songs, I had to learn to sit still and be present enough to let them come to me."

In that sense, Reflections, Frameworks' entrancing new LP, is as much a work of cultivation as it is craftsmanship, a meditative exercise in tuning into the subconscious and capturing moments as they arrive. Recorded at home, the album is spare and hypnotic, eschewing the orchestration of earlier Frameworks albums in favor of a more lean, direct sound. The songs mix driving electronic beats with layers of analog synthesizers and chopped up vocal samples, and the production is close-up and intimate to match, swirling around like late-night thoughts. The result is a poignant contemplation of growth, purpose, and catharsis built on instinct and intuition, a bittersweet soundtrack for both the sweaty, crowded dance floor and the long, lonely walk home.

A Manchester native, Brewer first rose to fame with his critically acclaimed 2015 debut, Tides, which brought Frameworks' cinematic mix of instrumental hip-hop and downtempo, organic house music to an international audience. In the years since, he's gone on to release two more LPs, perform everywhere from Coachella to Electric Forest, collaborate with the likes of Ninja Tune's Jono McCleery and fellow UK standout JP Cooper, and rack up millions of streams.
