We’ve heard the samplers and now it’s time for the album to drop. On Departures, ill.Gates delivers some of his hardest hitting bass music slammers and also some of his most intricate sound design and experimentation. A large amount of the album was also composed on live video feed with ill.Gates fans witnessing his production process in real time, commenting and begging for release dates. The release day is finally here and the final result also includes collaborations with Stylust, KJ Sawka and Mr. Bill as well as a banging remix of an Andreilien tune.
