Debut Album 'Ghosts of Then and Now' Out Now

Illum Sphere - Debut Album 'Ghosts of Then and Now' Out Now

It's been a long time coming but it's finally here... the first full-length from Illum Sphere, out today on 2LP, CD and digitally. Order your copy from the Ninjashop, iTunes and Amazon.

Ghosts of Then and Now has been deliberately and uncompromisingly conceived as a full length record by the founder of Manchester club night Hoya:Hoya; an album in the traditional sense, full of music that couldn’t be more modern, whilst nodding to Hunn's various influences.

It features drumming from Ghostly International mainstay Shigeto and vocal collaborations with Mai Nestor (on "At Night") and three tracks with ShadowBox. Be sure to check out the Zed Bias remix and Illum Sphere's own techno re-edit of lead single Sleeprunner here.

Tune in to Illum Sphere on NTS Radio tomorrow (11 Feb) for a special album launch transmission from 4-6pm (GMT) here and you can catch him on tour over the next few weeks, info and tickets below.

21 Feb @ The Yard, London, UK - TICKETS
22 Feb @ Roadhouse, Manchester, UK - TICKETS
28 Feb @ VK, Brussels, BE - TICKETS
