Considering that I.L.Y.A went with “Uniqueness Patrol” for a track title for his latest single, it’s a pretty good job it was a prodigally unique offering of EDM. The Moscow, Russia-based artist and songwriter has an undoubtedly infectious approach when it comes to pairing sticky-sweet melodies with playful lyrics versed by vocals which add even more euphoria to the track. There aren’t too many EDM artists out there adding the personal touch to their music which is why I.L.Y.A’s style is so refreshing.
The European influence is audible as the track runs through elements of the 80’s and 90’s offering a hit of nostalgia. Any fans of Empathy Test, Mesh, VNV Nation and Covenant are sure to love what I.L.Y.A have cooked up with their latest single. You can check out Uniqueness Patrol for yourself by heading over to Spotify now.
