Tommy Ills and his new cinematic approach to life and music

 

Lavatory Records

When thinking of art and music, one mantra that has constantly been conveyed here at Lavatory Records is that “music connects us all”. Be it film, theater, radio and television – every form of entertainment has music encompassed in it. This mantra also applies to rapper Tommy Ills from the Revivolution clique – bar a slight nuance from that norm.

Tommy Ills, who used to be known as One L during his battle rap days, was an aspirant film maker who discovered rap music along the way. For Tommy, his life can be likened to a screenplay that converged into the perfect musical script (rap sheets even so to speak). With his forthcoming release, Pizza and Pu**y Parlour, a collaboration with producer Vez Fullstop, he aims to “Do The Right Thing” for his career and artistic direction. Hence the change of aliases from One L to Tommy Ills was more than suited to his new outlook.

We were able to get word from Tommy Ills about his origins and artistry, his love for fashion, musical direction, battle rap history and much more. Without further ado, we get into the fourth Revivolution feature on Lavatory Records.

Eclectic Eben imparts his evolving perspective through music

We are honoured to have had the chance to speak to Eben about his background, get his insight on music education, the Musikmesse Trade Show, his forthcoming projects with Duo Bel Canto and other things.
