Memories in music, everlasting impressions: this simple mantra defined ’Scars’, ilan Bluestone’s debut artist album.
Released in April 2018, the iTunes Dance #1 album demonstrates ilan’s love for all aspects of electronic music. From festival favorites ‘Will We Remain?’, ‘Let Me Know’ and ‘Frozen Ground’, to the reflective moments of ‘Guru’ and ‘Eclipse’, the record took an ecliptic path through sounds of trance, house and ambient yet all tracks bore an undeniable ilan Bluestone mark.
ilan brought the ‘Scars’ tour to 65 locations across 4 continents, leaving an everlasting impression on trance fans from EDC Las Vegas to Creamfields U.K. and Above & Beyond’s ABGT300 celebrations in Hong Kong. The closing chapter to ilan’s golden year, ‘Scars’ (Remixed) puts his songs in the hands of a trusted inner-circle of musical contemporaries.
Debuted at ABGT300 Hong Kong, German trance titans Cosmic Gate are at their brooding best, flipping ilan’s anthem ‘Frozen Ground’ feat. Giuseppe De Luca. Serbia’s Vintage & Morelli lends a 90’s house twist to another De Luca record, ‘I Believe’. There are also reworks from Dutch maestro Rafaël Frost, Russian progressive star PROFF, Spencer Brown, KOVEN and ilan’s musical partner in crime, Maor Levi, who contributes three fresh mixes to the album. Rounding things off is a live studio rework from Glastonbury favorites Shadowlark, the band fronted by ‘Rival’ lead singer Ellen Smith.
