Electro-hip-pop duo illexotic is the sonic fusion of flutist, vocalist, Corinita, and rapper, pianist Josh. Their hypnotic sound is a melding of trap, hip hop, and electro-pop, with layers of live vocals and instrumentation flowing over programmed beats. The result is something just as cool and sexy as it is ethereal, luring the listener into a dreamy soundscape.
Josh brings flowing lyrics, the candor of his voice is a vehicle to transport important messages of positivity to the masses while they bob their heads to chill beats or get down on the dance floor. His luscious key board playing resonates perfectly, contrasting with beauty whether it be synthesized sounds, on piano or brought to life on melodica.
Corinita’s powerful vocals convey a message of solidarity rooted in heart break, trauma and over coming life’s obstacles. Her voice is a direct reflection of her strength as a person, forged in resilience which additionally culminates in lyrics penned from the heart.
Creating together since 2016, they are a musical force to be reckoned with — whether on your favorite playlist, in the club, or playing in the background while hiking in their native San Francisco Bay Area, listeners are sure to find something they like in their catalogue. Their goal? To unify the weary masses, give voice to the voiceless and empower those who feel powerless.
