Glasgow duo Illyus & Barrientos continue to aim for the upper levels of dance music production royalty with their new summer track ‘Supersonic’. The new single, recently released on Ultra Music, arrives loaded with bass, minimal distractions and a feeling of summer. Bringing their lockdown studio output to the centre stage, the track follows on from the Scottish pair’s previous single, ‘Dancing Hearts’.
The duo’s latest vocal house offering possibly serves as a reminder that the pair have diverse origins – Barrientos has Chilean parents and was born in America, while Illyus grew up in Frankfurt after being born in Govan, Glasgow. They met on Glasgow’s dancefloors in 2014, building a friendship over their mutual love of modern house tunes that have since propelled them to higher levels of acclaim.
With previous releases on the likes of Defected, Glasgow Underground and Toolroom, the duo continue to be rewarded with regular support from DJs such as Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Pete Tong, whilst also previously featuring as part of Radio 1’s Essential Mix series.
