In 2012, Ohio artist Ill Poetic released his last solo project “The Synesthesia Yellow” EP. Plans for a video to the EP’s single “Silhouette” were underway, complete with a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2013 for the song’s video. In the two years that would follow, Ill Po and his team turned the video into a short film and built an entirely new project around the original song, even rebuilding the song itself. Thus we have “The Silhouette Project”, a 5-song EP + short film combo that acts as a companion-piece to Synesthesia Yellow but exists in a universe of it’s own.

These past two years also saw Ill Poetic make the move to San Diego, CA, co-running a record store, Beat Box Records, with Ohio-Transplant DJ Inform, a move that came to inspire the new project’s sound and subject matter..

“These are my words about love” says Ill Po about the new project. “The record store opened me wide open to genres of music I’d never been aware of but quickly fell in love with, greatly influencing my production. So the music is inspired by what I imagine my favorite artists and producers interpret love to be when they create. Each song is inspired by how I feel love translates through their music.”

This EP will be released on April 27, 2016 via Definition Music and supported by a US Tour.
