Glasgow has always been a fertile breeding ground for music. With countless renowned DJs hailing from the city, there is no shortage of world-class talent. The latest duo to set dance floors alight in Glasgow and far beyond are Illyus & Barrientos.
These two names were on everyones lips last year as they continued to impress with every single release and DJ set throughout 2018. They have started 2019 with a future anthem on the label they call home, Toolroom, “Shout”. Fresh from their recently aired Radio One Essential Mix and their Australian tour, the boys return on Mark Knight’s label with ‘The One’.
It’s their second outing on Toolroom of 2019 and it’s a more than worthy follow up to ‘Shout’ which was a Beatport top 5 and has received over 1700 worldwide radio plays to date. In true Illyus & Barrientos form it’s a peak-time, fun and raucous affair with gospel like vocals laid over the top of some insanely hooky brass sections and pounding drums.
