After the viral excitement waves MBNN & Rowald Steyn finally release their highly anticipated cover of Billie Eilish's "ilomilo". Transforming the famous 2019 hit into a powerful deep house record, the Russian-Dutch team saw their version sweep the globe racking up millions of Shazams and YouTube plays. And now the next milestone is here, an official release on Spinnin' Records, bringing the song to an even larger audience than anyone could have imagined.
Already a key track on modern pop icon Billie Eilish's 2019 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, the compelling 'ilomilo' features beautifully understated electronics and dormant emotion. Those vibes were then captured and taken to the next level by Russian producer MBNN and fellow Dutchman Rowald Steyn.
|Both acts have already captured the attention of the global dance community, with MBNN making waves with its sets around the world, while its infectious and groovy productions have reached millions of international audiences. Dance music fans will remember Dutch producer Rowald Steyn from his worldwide chart-hitting remix for Wamdue Project's classic "King Of My Castle," as well as his recent Spinnin' debut with a clever rendition of Fairground Attractions' UK number-one – Hit "Perfect".|
The duo teamed up for a revitalized cover of "ilomilo," turning the subtle Billie Eilish song into a mellow deep-house gem. The two producers incorporated stylistically flavorful guitar chords and a deeper beat, while Steyn arranged for the vocals to be released and recorded. The result was as impressive as it was powerful, leading to one of the most shareable internet hits of the moment.
From its first YouTube release in late 2019 to today, the record has garnered attention from both pop and dance music fans. The bootleg now has over 81 million YouTube streams, while other portals such as SoundCloud and Shazam are also posting huge peaks for the record.
"ilomilo" has clearly come a long way. Now that a new chapter begins, the tune enjoys an official release on Spinnin' Records and promises to be heard by a wider audience than ever before. Expect "ilomilo" on your favorite streaming portals as well as worldwide radio waves – this record goes public (again), the story is far from over.
