Throwing back 15yrs to BURN, Durban: Could be any other party, right? Look closely though, no smartphones at the original “illshad show”. I see two future @ecrbreakfast deejays, the dude that opened @tacozulu and a couple other young Durbanites on their way to kiff heights. We are illuminating shadows. We are day one, son. 🐟🎤🔥🎤🎣 #poisoncity #durban #031 #illshad #illuminatingshadows

This here is a throwback of a distant time! Early 2000s to be round about. Durban aka Poison City didn’t really have the events for us to play at and it was difficult to see the acts we wanted to see. The hip-hop scene was young and super underground, although there were awesome artists around. We decided to throw our own shows “The Illshad Show” we did a couple crackers I tell you. Burn hosted some super good times as a venue so it was an obvious place to throw one of our early shows. The scene back then was so much like an awesome big family from bands to rappers, breakers, writers, DJ’s and lovers of he scene, music and culture. Damn fine times! So this here is a classic old hand drawn flyer (@ewokessay did them all) and the following pic is two skinny ass white rappers out of the 031 just fucking loving it. Tomorrow we drop another little fun video and soon soon come some new music. So excited to be back at it with my brother and partner in rhyme. My beats were made for Illshad haha. Keep watching this space and thank you for all the love and memories. Big Up! #hiphop #tbt #flyer #southafrica #durban #illshad #rap #music

In 2001 illshad entered the Durban underground with a three track demo. Seek The Sun was one of the first pieces we produced together, 18yrs ago. Before Instagram Facebook and smartphones, this was the music we were making. Check this track and more of our original material, out on our Soundcloud. #illuminatingshadows #illshad #sickfish #stillswimming #seekthesun

Whachu see here is an authentic artifact: Durban “Poison City” original hip hop culture, from way back when it was really beginning. This is pre-Facebook pre-Instagram pre-smartphone, back when we still had to do flyer drops at top spots and we had to draw the flyers up ourselves. This is illuminating shadows, underground since day one, and we’re freakin comin back atcha, proper. Stay tuned. Another video drop tomorrow. #illuminatingshadows #illshad #sickfish #durbanhiphop #sahiphop #hiphop

It’s been a real full circle, me an the homie @kngbza coming around to the studio, together again. @sonicstudios031 has born witness to the re-ignition of the shadow flames. Looking forward to launching the new illuminating shadows out into the ether. Expect what you know plus what has grown in us both. New music, coming soon: illuminating shadows, and we’re still swimming. #illuminatingshadows #illshad #sickfish #stillswimming #sahiphop #hiphop

I’ve been rocking the planet with brother like @kngbza since 2003, but we’ve known each other since high school, circa 1996. illuminating shadows was our brainchild, born out of our mutual love of hip hop and the microphone check. We started in a small home studio setup at the back of his digs around the corner from DUT, Durban. Those days, pre-smartphone and social media, we were hitting every open mic stage we could find, letting the city know we were in it to win it. It’s 2019 now, we’ve traveled many a road, we’re back in each other’s orbit with our first project together in 10yrs. New music starts dropping in November. #illuminatingshadows #stillswimming #illshad #sickfish #sahiphop #hiphop #independentartist #indyhiphop

It’s been about 10 years but it feels like home. Back at work in studio with my brotha Ewok. We told you we weren’t done. illuminating shadows / illshad / the sick fish... back at it. So much fun. We have grown and changed but we still the same. Can’t wait for you all to hear our new material. • 📸: @rory.s.jacobs (you legend, thank you!) • #illuminatingshadows #illshad #hiphop #music #studio #recording #rap #beats #rhymes #emcee #durban #SouthAfrica

😘”We ❤️ illshad!”😘 Go and shoot us with a Like arrow on Facebook, coz that’s where all the new tunes and talking points are going to land. Phat Fact: The name illuminating shadows was decided over a chat room, between @kingb_za (in Taiwan teaching kids English) and mEwok (in Durban in my first year at University studying Media and Communications). A chat room! Remember them? If you don’t know, you’re never gonna know. We pre-mp3 heads got a whole ‘nother outlook on it all, best believe. Have a great day! We ❤️ you too 😘😘😘 #throwbackthursday #boomerang #allcomesaround #fullcircle #stillswimming #illuminatingshadows #illshad #sickfish

Throwing back HARD right here, mainly because the brother @kingb_za an’me are back on it like serious like that like. Y’all remember #BLUNTmagazine right? Leading flame in the SA underground scene, this publication put so many artists on the map and kept many a niche in the market. When we hit the stage again it’s going to be everything from the new through to the true school. Go like #illuminatingshadows on FB to see how we re-ignite like “Light a flame in the dark / watch the shadows appear...” #poisoncity #031 #SAhiphop #illuminatingshadows #illshad #OGpoisoncity #longtimecoming #longtimegone #longtimeonit
