From deep, frosty ambient scapes up to cold and academic abstractions Ilar seems to be able to produce everything. Like on the 12inch "Organza", that was released on Level Records in 2006, Ilar's fifth Full-length-release "Sworn"; has a mostly warm sound design, which fits perfectly with the label.
The eight new tracks on Sworn have a romantic and sublime feel and combine a wide range of musical styles: you will find sparkling electronica, abstract IDM-ish parts and deep clubby tunes with slices of acid and Chicago house in it. Despite the many different influences the result is a very coherent one as everything is embraced by Ilar's enigmatic and unique haze of sound.
On "Sworn", undoubtedly one of Ilar's finest works to date, sophistication and blissfulness go hand in hand. The CD also includes three more highlights of Ilar's and Level Records' shared history - his outstanding contribution to the recent Level compilation „Top Ten" and two tracks originally released on "Organza EP" in 2006.
