Billie Jo - LILIES7
Lilies - LILIES7
LILIES welcomes fellow Swedish artist Billie Jo onto its roster for the labels seventh release.
Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, Billie Jo is a DJ and producer with material on the likes of Spencer Parker's Work Them Records and Vincent Neumann's Unitas Multiplex. The past few years have seen Billie Jo steadily making her mark on the Stockholm underground scene and here we see the release of her third EP to date via DJ Lily and Sailor Juul's LILIES imprint.
"Dubbla Slag" leads with thunderous kicks, jolting percussive chimes and Jo's own hypnotic vocal chants ebbing and flowing amongst crunchy drums and a pulsating low- end drive "Du får mitt hjärta att slå dubbla slag" - You make my heart skip a beat. "Faller' follows next, embracing a similarly raw aesthetic courtesy of a gritty, dynamically evolving rhythm and intricately processed vocal murmurs, once again from Billie, uttering "Jag faller - så fånga mig" - "I'm falling - so catch me".
On the flip-side label bosses Sailor Juul and DJ Lily deliver their "Wellness Remix", embracing a more menacing feel with heavily distorted bass tones, driving drums and the original vocal line throughout. DJ Lily then goes solo for his take on 'Faller", again adding an even more vigorous feel to things via rave tinged drum breaks, distorted bass stabs and vacillating vocal tones.
