Hailing from Scotland's largest city, Illyus & Barrientos have been blazing a trail in
the Dance Music scene. The pair consistently channel their varied influences into all
of their records, consistently offering something truly unique with each record and
performance. Barrientos has Chilean parents and was born in America, while Illyus
grew up in Frankfurt after being born in Govan (Scotland). They met on Glasgow's
dance floors in 2014, building a friendship over their mutual love of the kind of
unashamedly big, floor-filling modern house tunes that have since informed their own
music and propelled them to the forefront of the UK Dance Music scene. In many
ways, they are an odd couple – while Illyus was growing up in the vibrant local hip-
hop scene in Germany, and then in Glasgow distributing early mixtapes for an
enthusiastic audience of friends, Barrientos was still taking classical piano lessons,
playing Chopin and Beethoven. The culmination of their diverse ascensions to this point continues to produce anthem after anthem.
With a collection of releases on labels such as Toolroom, Defected, and Mother
Recordings, as well as remixes for the likes of Calvin Harris, Purple Disco Machine,
Armand Van Helden, Sonny Fodera, Kylie, A-Trak, and Gorgon City, Illyus &
Barrientos have established themselves as one of the most prolific and in-demand
DJ-producer duos in the UK. They've performed at standout venues such as
London's iconic Printworks, CRSSD (USA), Ushuaia (Ibiza), and supported the likes
of Rudimental. Furthermore, they've already released a wealth of records of the
years with their most notable single 'Promise' picking up overwhelming support and
smashing it's way through 6.5M+ streams to date. Furthermore, Illyus & Barrientos have graced the playlists of internationally recognized radio stations Kiss FM UK,Capital Dance and BBC Radio 1 as well as hosting a number of shows on Kiss FM UK.
The duo are a constant in house music and are growing from strength to strength.
