It’s been a while since Ian Halshall – aka KEEPING THE FAITH – has made an appearance on NEW LEASE MUSIC. The dubstep/drum ‘n’ bass beatmaster has been busy setting up his new record label IDGAF as well as churning out on-points productions, including his latest project, Limits.

Today’s song is Whatever by KEEPING THE FAITH featuring ILIA DARLIN.
I featured the man behind KEEPING THE FAITH dubstep connoisseur Ian Halsall a few months back with club -filler Feel It . This time he teamed up with Greek-born singer ILIA DARIN for an in-your-face, bass-bursting production, topped off by the singer’s melodic vocals –another one that’s strictly for the dance floor. Go on, have a listen!
Like her collaborator of this single, ILIA DARLIN no stranger to the music scene. Starting out in an underground electro punk band called Stiletto Scag, she went on to become one of the biggest stars in her hometown and has been hailed ‘the next biggest thing’ and the ‘Greek renaissance.’
ILIA took her career to the next level and moved to London, where she performed at numerous of venues including MTV and London Fashion Week in 2011. She was also involved in a project with Konvict Muzik record label (co-owned by AKON) and collaborated with producer and songwriter Billy Mann, who produced hits for artists including PINK, KELLY ROWLAND and CELINE DION.
Now based in LA, ILIA DARLIN is currently working on new material. If you want to keep up to date with the talented singer, please visit her website, ILIA’S BEDROOM, where you can check her much-talked-about hits.
