Who Is Billie Eilish?

Over the course of 2017, Billie Eilish went from a precocious high-schooler who wouldn't stop singing to one of mainstream music's most exciting new voices. Her dontsmileatme EP was a crack of lightning against our musical landscape, eight tracks of dark, scrappy pop that revealed Billie's talents as a songwriter—and her fascination with morbidity. But the EP was also a family affair: Billie's brother Fineas provided most of the production, and the songs were largely written in their parents' roomy Craftsman home in Los Angeles' Highland Park. 

The 16-year-old singer was homeschooled by equally creative parents, both of them actors that encouraged Billie's early interest in dance and horseback riding. She's always been a singer, but it wasn't she and Fineas uploaded “Ocean Eyes” that the musical aspirations started to come to life. That was in November of 2015, and the success that has followed swept the whole family up in its current.

Luckily, they were prepared—Billie has the right people around her, and since signing to Interscope, she's become one of the label's most sought-after acts. By the time we visited the family's house in L.A., Billie had paired with Vince Staples on the “watch” remix and cooked up some unreleased heat with IDK and Denzel Curry

For now, however, Billie Eilish's creative base remains in Highland Park. It's somewhere between the treehouse built by her dad (he made this ladder, too), the aerial trapeze in the backyard (her mom teaches circus lessons on the side), and the hidden wall of her bedroom, where Billie scrawls ideas in black marker. It's home, but it's also headquarters.

Aire Atlantica – Shotgun Confidence (feat. DOMENICO) [Free DL]

 Aire Atlantica is back with his first single of the year. He previously topped the HypeMachine charts for his remix of Billie Eilish and is well on his way to dance music stardom with a newly announced run of support shows for Hotel Garuda.

“Shotgun Confidence” is new territory for the producer having teamed up with R&B singer DOMENICO to create a sound unlike that which we’ve previously heard from him. The song is intimate aural exploration through different soundscapes between R&B, electronic, and everything in between alongside DOMENICO’s soothing vocals. It’s intimate listening experience and definitely shows off a darker, edgier side to Aire Atlantica I didn’t know existed.

Billie Eilish Releases Remix Pack For ‘Six Feet Under’

There’s a good chance that you’ve heard a few of these Billie Eilish remixes, if not all, hanging around SoundCloud for some time now. Fortunately for Spotify users, the full pack was officially released yesterday across stores, making it a good time for a revisit.

I previously covered the Jerry Folk remix, which was one of my favorites mixes of any Billie Eilish single to date, while the Aire Atlantica remix was previously a Hype Machine chart-topper and another personal favorite of mine. Rounding out the rest of the pack is a creative house take by BLU J, which features a lot of unique sound design and a great drop, plus a dark house tune by Gazzo to contrast the brighter version by BLU J.

Stream them all below.
