ILLBILLY HITEC is a band that originated in Berlin, Germany and they have made it their mission to put the ‘roots’ back into the music of this generation. Their music is a lively mashup of roots, rock and dub. The electronic sounds fused with the heavy drum beats and bass lines gives their music its flair. Their first album “Reggaetronics” was released in 2013 and was an instant hit. They have since released a second album, “Reggae Not Dead” and an EP “No Borders” which was released in January 2017. The group has been touring for the album ever since.

Their single “No Borders” features Promoe, a Swedish rapper and member of the hip hop group Looptroop Rockers. The single also features Kinetical, a reggae artist from Austria. This single definitely shows their versatility. The different musical styles they used to influence their hits can be heard on this track. “No Borders” begins with an electric guitar, similar to the dub sound. As the song is being introduced, the heavy pump of the bassline can be heard before the instrumentals come in to emphasize the reggae vibe.
