2011 was a crazy year for me. So much opportunity, so much success, so many new sounds and diverse styles of music – the rate & amount of music that I received daily/weekly was almost too much for me to handle at times and still is. It is not easy keeping up with so many different styles of music, in fact I still feel like I’m behind on certain bpms.
If I had to choose one style of sound that has hit me the most as of lately it would obviously be any sound that has Bass emphasis in it. Whether its 808s, echo chambers tied in with reverb bass-lines, deep synthesizers, with crispy smooth-rhythmic percussions and hi-tech drums/snares… all of it – it has me right in the chest.
I coined this terminology of sound called Deep-Thought music. Basically any track that is deep, heavy, soulful, and constant -- making you think of your day, life, achievements, inspirations, issues, ect is basically deep thought music.

It's been almost 2 years since i've posted any type of content, but I hope you realize that i've been up to something special outside of illvibes. Illvibes was a stepping stone for me, but illvibes and everything I accomplished evolved into SOULECTION. I have my own radio show (Soulection Radio) at my University (Cal State Long Beach University - Kbeach Radio). I come on Thursdays from 11 am - 1 pm PST (LA Time)! I appreciate all the support and everyone constantly hitting the "I want more" button. Such a small notification makes me smile and is actually the main reason why i'm posting this mix here! Since you love everything I did on here for IllVibes, you should definitely make effort to listen to my current radio show. You can only imagine what my show sounds like 2 years later-post-Illvibes. Progression? More like The Sound of the Future. If you enjoy Illvibes then Soulection is automatic! Anyways, I thought I'd hit you w/ a new guest mix that I did for a radio show out here in LA (Truth Seekers Radio - 90.7 FM Los Angeles). They are responsible for educating me in radio and exposing me to the airwaves.
Educate your self & support real radio: http://truthseekersradio.org
Here are some of my current links that will catch you up with my current activity --
Spread the word. I most likely won't post on here for a very long time if ever again because there is really no reason to. Soulection is where it's at so please transfer your mind and vibrations over and grow with me.
Lastly, of course the Playlist to this beautiful mix!

Summer has just about wrapped up! Now, we are all leaning into Fall, ready for a new beginning!I am in the middle of a transition point in my life; realizing how crucial it is to meet the right connects.New technology is approaching me, new ideas, new opportunities. I'm glad that you and I are both apart of this.In one year, since I've started, a lot of things have connected just right. lllVIBES will soon be hitting the airwaves and a ear drum near you! This mix has a good feel as always, it came to me pretty easy, tt has a deep-thought feel to it. The dub-step sound always seems to inspire me. Besides this mix, I want to give a big THANK YOU to Truth Seekers Radio 90.7 KPFK Los Angeles for giving me a opportunity of a lifetime this past summer, allowing me to show my perspective as well as contribute to their show. You guys have no idea how many great sources are out there. Please, please do the research, you won't be disappointed! Lastly, shout out to all of the artists, labels, and everyone involved who connect with me. It's dope to know that people appreciate a good selection. Afterall, I am just your average JOE who is a music appreciator. Lastly, much love to my brother from another 96 for the quality artwork! He never disappoints me! Anyways, enough of my words...

And you thought we were done? Ha, it's been sometime since I've dropped a massive. After accumulating new sounds and reflecting on the current times, I felt it was right to drop this with you. You, the people. This music is timeless. It is life, it is deep. The sounds are provided from artists who reside from every continent which makes this a global sound.

WORLD! Here we are back for another one. This year has been one of the fastest years of my life. It has already been a full year since lllVIBES was launched. As you've all been following the work that I put out month after month, I have finally came to conclusion that I will take things to another level in the upcoming year. At this moment, I decided to feature my first guest: 96, who hails from Lille,France. He is a beast when it comes to his creative art work. His style of art is very creative; bringing many new aspects to the art culture. As if his art talent isn't enough, this guy has one hell of an ear for music. I'll let you be the judge. I hope you enjoy the sounds of the world. Guestmix by 96: 01 Jar Moff ~ 'Track 03' 02 Kenlo & Vlooper ~ 'Venus' 03 Benny B. Blonco ~ 'Pray' 04 Adrian Shep ~ 'Watch The Moon' 05 Jar Moff ~ 'Track 04' 06 Shlomo ~ 'Ghosts' 07 Jar Moff ~ 'Track 04' 08 Shlomo ~ '7am' 09 fL∆ko ~ 'Ring Di' 10 Shlomo ~ '7am' 11 Harrison Blakoldman ~ '1-2-1-2' 12 Black Spade ~ 'Actioneer' (Waajeed Remix) 13 Hayzee ~ 'Fireworks' 14 Kenlo & Vlooper ~ 'Rue Brisson' 15 fL∆ko ~ 'Lord of Chaos' 16 Ichiro ~ 'CU222' 17 A N.I.Q.

Back with Another MASSIVE! Each time after I finish a mix, I say to myself, "How in the hell am I going to top this one?!" But somehow, each mix just gets more advanced. This is my art. This is what I love. Once again, we have another collaboration between me and 96. He is my creative art-man. There are tons of new artists; don't be pushed back because you're unfamilair with these names.. These are all talented artists who are capable of being on many labels! The sounds will pull you in, trust! This one is called BeaTravellin' because these beats and vocals are going to travel through your ears and into the frequencies that we all breathe.

This past month... I gained a huge amount of sounds from all types of artists from all over the world. I threw everything into one big playlist and then narrowed the list down to what I felt was right. I ended up with 54 Perspectives. Furthermore, I came across a really talented artist from France who goes by the name of 96. After seeing his series of art, I had to connect the show to him; in result we came up with collabo. Make sure you Peep his ARTWORK. Once again, thank you to everyone who has been following & BIG ups to all the music artists who contributed as well, you know who you are!!!! Quality will always get played here. This might be really different for you, but trust, come in with open ears, and hear what I hear. stay up. Massive Respect.

This is some Future-Vintage, World Class, Timeless music. I did this for My boy Paul (Astro-Nautico) over in Montreal. Many of these artists may be unfamiliar with you, but PLEASE do me a favor and do not sleep on this. It has only been 5 months since I started making mixes and each one keeps improving. Each one has it's own sound direction and a story to tell. I appreciate all the listeners and feedback that I have recieved world-wide. In addition, I have been able to interact with some real talented artists who are also really down to earth. Shout out to Ki en Ra, Take, and Duktus. This is a world-wide connection... Enjoy. 1.

THEY CAN'T HEAR IT BECAUSE THEIR MIND IS NOT TRAINED TO HEAR THE ILL SHIT
lllVIBES is something that started off as an idea and as a personal expression for myself. But then I soon realized that there was something much bigger & deeper behind this idea that I had. Now, after 2+ years since I launched illvibes, I can say that the work has finally paid off. IllVIBES has evolved into a new medium called: SOULECTION I won't say much more other than to follow the link if you like what I have brought to your attention through the lllVIBES podcasts.
