Ill Delta the record sits at a crossroads of jazz, experimental electronic and video game music. Ill Delta the band is a local trio of musicians who are clearly on the same wavelength when it comes to playing together. We saw their chemistry in a Brighton Sound Session they recorded over a year ago (revisit that video here), and that tightness carries over into the EP they released last month.
Newly formed jazz/funk trio ill Delta were the focus of the latest Brighton Sound Session. The Philadelphia-based project of Tim Brey (piano), Justin Sekelewski (bass) and Kevin Ripley (drums) recorded a sleek performance of their trickling, structurally-intricate track “Dark Chocolate,” cut live against a backdrop of colorful lights and shadows. ill Delta marks a change of pace for session partners Brighton Sound Studio and Seven Knots Productions, stepping out of the indie rock genre of past collaborators.
