I’m starting a new series of blog posts to focus briefly on artists and djs that I meet or discover through my quest to provide you the best in electronic, chillout and downtempo music.
Our first artist of the series is LiLi Roquelin, a downtempo, chillout/trip-hop artist based out of New York City. With her newest release “Beautiful Sun”, Lili combines ethereal pop ballads with an electronic touch to produce a very unique sound of her own.
Lili grew up in south France and – inspired by her multi-instrumentalist father – began her love for music at the early age of four. Moving to the United States to further pursue her career, she began her discovery-process musical journey fronting two hard-rock bands in Ohio. Her first self-titled trip-hop/piano composition EP was released in 2008. Later in 2009, Lili moved to New York and began working on several new projects including a full-length album.
In 2011 and 2012, several of Lili’s tracks were featured on the Lifetime TV network show Dance Mom’s and she released her “Beautiful Sun” album in December 2012.
