Ilan Bluestone unveils ‘Impulse,’ his most personal outing to date.
At the forefront of progressive and trance for almost a decade, Ilan Bluestone creates high-energy trance with heart and soul. From barnstorming festival favorites ’43’, ‘Spheres’ and ‘Let Me Know’, to modern updates of genre classics like System F’s ‘Out Of The Blue’, Armin van Buuren’s ‘In And Out Of Love’ and OceanLab’s ‘On A Good Day’ and ‘Satellite’, his emotional, song-drive approach to dance music has earned him eleven genre chart #1’s on Beatport and a legion of fans around the world.
His debut artist album, 2018’s Scars, emphatically showcased the Bluestone sound. Broadening his repertoire with elements of dubstep, chillout, and funk, ‘Scars’ cemented Ilan’s place as a headline Anjunabeats artist with DJ support from Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, and Oliver Heldens. The album has hit over 30 million streams. His tireless work ethic has been rewarded with the opportunity to perform at marquee festivals and venues: Electric Daisy Carnival, Creamfields, Tomorrowland, The Hollywood Palladium, Brooklyn Mirage, Madison Square Garden. Tracks from ‘Impulse’ were tested at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 350 show in Prague, 2019, and streamed to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.
Songwriting takes center stage on ‘Impulse’ – love found and lost attachment and disengagement.
‘Stranger To Your Love’ showcases this emphatically, reuniting Ilan Bluestone with Ellen Smith. Frequently supported by BBC Introducing through her band Shadowlark, Ellen featured on ‘Scars’ album favorite ‘Rival’ and provides two contributions to ‘Impulse’. Giuseppe de Luca returns to the fold with five vocal contributions on ‘Impulse’. The natural peak-time successor to hits like ‘Bigger Than Love’ and ‘Frozen Ground’, ‘Look At Me Now’ is a guitar-driven anthem about loss. Fine-tuned on tour, fans may recognize ‘Stardust & Madness’ from ilan’s performances at Group Therapy 350, Creamfields 2019, and A State of Trance 950.
Ilan Bluestone’s ‘Impulse’ arrives this Friday (May 7, 2021) on Anjunabeats and marks a welcoming return to full length albums and musical journey’s from the progressive trance mastermind.
