We’ve worked with Lusine to create this immersive listening event featuring some of his favorite selections from his vast catalog. Note that this is not a live performance. We’ll be sharing unreleased immersive mixes that have never been heard in-person.
From his early releases as Lusine onward, Jeff McIlwain’s electronic explorations make up one of the more diverse discographies of the past two decades.
Effortlessly blurring the lines between techno, electro-pop and experimental composition, the Texas-raised/Seattle-based producer’s arrangements are meticulously constructed, but also filled with emotion and soul. Following 2017 full-length Sensorimotor, which explored the body’s instinct versus the brain’s intent, the latest introverted 4-tracker, Retrace, finds McIlwain just as kinetically-curious. Balancing focused programming with washy, less concrete sonics, Retrace plays with the unexpected by drawing from slight variations on the same idea.
As Lusine, McIlwain has performed throughout the US and abroad, including sets at London’s esteemed Fabric nightclub, Tokyo’s Unit, Berlin’s Watergate, and Melbourne’s Electric Owl. Recent tour dates include appearances with electronic luminaries like The Field, Tipper and Blockhead, as well as playing at various events with a live drummer (Trent Moorman).
In addition to his Lusine productions, McIlwain has been involved with various film projects that include David Gordon Green’s The Sitter (Jonah Hill, 2011), Snow Angels (featuring Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell, 2007) and Joe (Nicolas Cage, Tye Sheridan, 2013) with music writing partner David Wingo. McIlwain most recently collaborated with Wingo on the film score for Meredith Danluck’s State Like Sleep (2018).
In addition to various remixes in 2019 and 2020, McIlwain has begun work on a new album.
