Tee-Wyla | I Got it Audio | @tee_wyla @armondwakeup @illect

Possession is nine-tenths of the law is an expression meaning that ownership is easier to maintain if one has possession of something. Illect beatsmith, Tee-Wyla confidently owns his moment as he emphatically proclaims ‘I got it‘ with his new single.

The decorated and seasoned producer also understands the universal law of crew love. He enlists Armond WakeUp and Jonathan Baker to come through with the three-man clique up and form like The Fabulous Freebirds. The production is a lush and ethereal pastiche filled with wonder and reflection. The swing of the rhythm will gently transport you into a state of contemplation of the past and the expectation of a burgeoning future. It makes perfect sense when Armond WakeUp plays proud parent by providing his seeds with some vital game in his stanzas:

“Every dark space your mind races through I’ve been there too
Believe I ain’t trying to scare you just prepare you
You’re my jewel, and you will carry my legacy
And accomplish many things I will never see.”

Sandwiched between these beautiful sonnets is Jonathan Baker’s soulful refrain where he floats above the clouds and cheekily dismisses the age-old concept of the sky being the limit.

Tomorrow is not promised for a reason. Own your moment now.

James Gardin | Joy Video | @JamesGardin @illect @sohhpr

Joy is something we all try to find in every day. At times, its located in painfully apparent places. Sometimes, its qualities are more elusive and need to be dug up from overlooked nooks and crannies. At the end of the day, joy is always found in things that are internal and eternal.

James Gardin continues his undefeated streak as The World’s Most Encouraging Rapper™ and reconvenes with his longtime collaborator TheyCallMeHeat. The result is a fresh new single to help people get through their big, medium and small sads. This song is a funky, danceable number that has the soundscape of a Hip Hop spaghetti western. Think joyful, joyful Lord we adore thee meets ambidextrous diddy bop and infectious nod.

Joy is out now on Illect Recordings.

Die-Rek | The Name is Die-Rek | @DIEREK @illect

There is power in a name. The best names command attention, intrigue and respect. This rings true with the lead single from Illect Recordings‘ newest signee, Die-Rek.

Staying true to his name and style, Die-Rek is just that. With his flow, delivery, meaning and method, there’s no ambiguity or confusion. The impact is as powerful as Busta Rhymes’ cannon. From early on, Die-Rek lands ill mental blows that don’t miss with quotables like:

“Borderline crazy thought I was in safety
Seems like I’ve questioned a lot of things lately
But I’ve been recognized to be strapped with armor
The battles not mine and so it is fought with honor”

The bells and whistles have been replaced with bombs and missiles as Die-Rek effortlessly weaves over his self-produced track which reinforces that age-old idea that producers know how to rock to their beats the best. Catchy melodic riff? Check. Hard drums. Yes. Cuts. Oh yeah. Classic Hip Hop aficionados and lovers of music with a message will be well served here.

Regarding his signing to Illect Recordings, Die-Rek said:

There’s a lot of legacy on this label. Tunnel Rats, L.A. Symphony, Scribbling Idiots, Lojique, Phat K.A.T.S. and Deepspace 5. These are household names that will live on in the culture, and that’s the aspiration. It sets a standard for me and puts a confirmation in my heart that I’m in the right place. It’s an honor to sit at the table amongst legends and a Manager that has 20+ years in the industry. God set me up! I’m ready to grab the baton, keep it moving and take it to another level. It’s my turn!”

The Name Is Die-Rek is out now on Illect Recordings.

Sundance & Adam L | The Last Sunrise Audio | @illect




On the heels of his recent jazz-tinged efforts, Sundance returns with a wild new song entitled “The Last Sunrise“, which features famed underground MC, Adam L, and a cast of talented musicians including DJ Sean P, Sivion, and Stro Elliott (The Roots). This horn-drenched single reminds us all to remain focused on what’s important during these uncertain times, and is a solid addition to his sporadic, eclectic production catalogue. Also being his first release since relocating to Dunedin, New Zealand, this is hopefully a great sign of things to come for the Illect Recordings artist.
