After a number of collaborations over the years, Illa J is ready for his latest solo project and has enlisted the production team of Kaytranada and Potatohead People for “Strippers“, the first single from the album. Since moving north to the colder climates of Montreal, Illa J has been settling in and continues to evolve his sound, stepping out of the media-driven shadow of his late brother. The advantage of being in Canada of course is the exposure to a new generation of beatmakers which is where Kaytranada’s involvement comes in. Between the head-knocking kicks and the crunchy clap-snares, Strippers will feel right at home in any club or social gathering with an ounce of respect for good music.
