🎧 Ilana Ariella @ilana_ariella Once accused of being an ‘undercover DJ,’ ilana ariella’s natural talent and ear for tunes has helped propel her career from bedroom aficionado to fully fledged artist. Pushing through a global pandemic, she stayed relevant by regularly streaming with her Chicago residency SHFFT. She also found time to get into the studio, putting out two original productions, “Rock the Vote,” self released in the fall of 2020 and “Falling Up” a collab with her SHFFT colleague Shmoo, released on Chicago legend Ron Carroll’s digital imprint Electric Disco in summer of 2022. read more→

He has also held residencies at Berlin Nightclub, Copa Lounge, East Room, Electric Hotel, Estate, and the infamous Tanto’s. Shmoo’s debut EP on the seminal Love Notes From Brooklyn label has sold out at record stores around the world and has received support from Honey Dijon on BBC Radio 1.
