Ill Gates "Terminally iLL" Goes #1 in 3 Different Beatport Categories

Ill.Gates latest album Terminally iLL has hit the #1 spots for Beatport’s Hip Hop, Dubstep and Glitch Hop charts.

The album is collaboration heavy and spans numerous genres, but all risks pay off in the 14 track release. Terminally iLL features Dub FX, G Jones, Minnesota, KJ Sawka (from Pendulum & Destroid) and many more. The Canadian producer plans to release more music later this summer, but unlike the bass heavy and talented vocalist featured type of music from Terminally iLL, it will be experimental and inspired by the spirit of festivals such as Burning Man or Shambhala. To celebrate his latest release ill.Gates is giving away merch packs, meet-and-greets and also copies of Terminally iLL! If you want to enter, you can do so by going here:https://ill.gates.media/win

Check out the album below and what ill.Gates had to say about his latest release:

"My new album finally dropped! The album is called Terminally iLL because it's intended to shine a light in dark times. It's easy to make angry or sad music, but it's really difficult to create happiness. This one took a long time because I tried to cram as much positivity and gratitude into it as possible. These songs are here to be your alarm clock, your road trip anthem, your secret happy dance, the soundtrack to a mountaintop high five with the squad. Please listen to these songs and know you're never alone. I'm trying to make as much of an impact with this album as possible, so please spread it far and wide, and if any of this resonates with you, please consider supporting this project by entering the contest or buying the album on Beatport."
