Still afloat in the success of his first no. 1 album in Australia titled as 'Two Degrees', Illy is now set to conquer the live stage, kicking off in March. The Melbourne Hip-Hop artist will be performing in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Two Degrees, his fifth studio release, dominated the ARIA album chart last November. It includes the triple platinum single Papercuts featuring Vera Blue – which Illy performed at the 2016 ARIA Awards – and the current ARIA gold certified single Catch 22, featuring Anne-Marie.
Apart from performing at the 2016 ARIAs, Illy also garnered six ARIA Award nominations, including Best Male Artist and Song Of The Year for Papercuts. Boasting over 17 million streams, the track went double platinum in eight weeks and sat at the top spot on the iTunes singles chart.
Tickets to the Two Degrees album launch shows last November sold out within minutes. Produced by M-Phazes, the album has not only captured the public's ears but also music critics nationally.
“Illy's fifth LP is packed with the signature slick, radio-friendly sound…delivering a near-bulletproof blend of pop, EDM and hip-hop.” - Rolling Stone
“Two Degrees deftly strikes a balance between party songs and sonic tales of life’s struggles. And sometimes they are both, Illy achieving that Holy Grail of pop music where an upbeat melody disguises a darker lyric.” - Herald Sun
Meanwhile, ARIA Award-nominated Australian hip hop duo Spit Syndicate, the unique Gold Coast producer and remixer Paces and Melbourne singer, songwriter and producer, Maribelle will all be joining Illy at all shows as special guests.
