When Darius and James first merged to create iLL BLU back in 2008, the project was only meant to produce a few club bangers.
Part of the rising UK funky scene, the duo helped push back the boundaries, pushing their sound towards a straight up house direction in the process.
Since then, things have exploded. New single 'Lonely People' finds the pair working alongside pop titan James Morrison, whose touching vocal sits on top of some of the funkiest production you'll hear near the charts this summer.
Ever on point, iLL BLU have invited Ragz Originale - who recently produced Skepta's enormous 'Shutdown' - to give the track an overhaul. Toying with the vocals, remains faithful to the atmosphere of the original but with some fluoro synths and crackling snares.
Nick Brewer is on hand to lend some guest rhymes, ramping things up a notch against James Morrison's supple vocal.
Check it out now.
'Lonely People' is set to be released on June 1st - pre-order the track HERE.
