- Words: Glenn Jackson
"Illustrious" is one of seven purple-fogged productions included as part of the On Another Planet mixtape from budding Birmingham beatmaker Kouben. Utilizing enough aimless, space-burnt synth lines to justify its album title and artwork, "Illustrious" is a brief snapshot into the sonic worlds Kouben aims to create—loose percussion holds the tempo steady as moody chords and bubbling synth gurgles seep in from every corner. Out now in digital and cassette form, the rest of the young UK producer's On Another Planet mixtape can be streamed after the jump.
