NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 19th – Today, Southern California artist and producer LLusion presents his new mixtape BUFFET—listen HERE!

On BUFFET Llusion wants the world to know: “I wear this project like a badge of honor. Going into it, I didn’t want to make it super serious. I wanted to keep it light and fun. Due to that, I didn’t expect it to have as much of an impact on me as it does. But here we are, almost 2 years from start to finish, for a body of work that I never would’ve thought would turn out as great as it did. I’m proud of BUFFET. I’m proud of my wife & creative partner who put her blood sweat & tears into handcrafting each cover art, as well as supporting me mentally throughout the journey. I hope everyone who listens, can take away at least one emotion. Whether it’s joy, sadness, inspiration, etc.

But then again, anytime you leave a buffet, you’re guaranteed one thing. You’re fed.”
The eight-track project illuminates the dynamic scope of his signature sound, stirring together lofi, alternative, pop, rock, and electronic into a masterfully multi-layered vision. The lead single “Some Type of Way” [feat. Savage Ga$p, Salina Killa, & Valentine] comingles ethereal guitar with a head-nodding beat before the trifecta of Savage Ga$p, Salina Killa, and Valentine lock into a vibrant vocal volley. It all culminates with a massive chorus from Valentine uplifted by LLusion’s inimitable production. Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video soon. Among other highlights, he also linked up with hyperpop phenomenon CMTEN, Mike Baretz, and Ben Beal for the emotionally charged finale “Come Undone.”

BUFFET boasts a series of fan favorite anthems as well. In advance of the project, its total streams have already exceeded 100 million bolstered by “walk but in a garden” [with mxmtoon], “Sad4good” [feat. Cautious Clay & HXNS], “STAY IN” [feat. LoveLeo], and “Yoga” [with salem ilese]. Not to mention, he has incited applause from the likes of Billboard, Indie Shuffle, The Wild Honey Pie, LADYGUNN, and more.

Llusion presents multiple flavors in harmony in his music. Breaking boundaries, he’s always created on his own terms. The Southern California artist and producer (pronounced “loo-zhuhn”) initially carved out a niche of his own with a series of uber popular TikTok remixes of Doja Cat, Playboi Carti, and more, tallying hundreds of millions of views. He also defined the “lofi” movement on TikTok with his D.I.Y. approach and handcrafted production. After building this profile, chart-topping superstars sought him out to collaborate. He reinvented 24KGoldn’s “CITY OF ANGELS” with a Funk Remix, tallying north of 17 million Spotify streams. During 2020, “walk but in a garden” set the stage for his breakthrough. Between the original and version with mxmtoon, it gathered just shy of 70 million Spotify streams and accelerated his momentum. On its heels, he dropped “Yoga” [with salem ilese], “Sad4good” [feat. Cautious Clay & HXNS], and “STAY IN” [feat. LoveLeo]. Billboard named the latter among “10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through The Week.” He also landed syncs in campaigns for the likes of Peloton and T-Mobile. He consistently connected with fans as closely as possible. Collaborating hand-in-hand with his wife and creative confidant, an audience of nearly 4 million on social media watches the couple as they not only live their lives, but also build out this world in real-time too. Generating nearly 200 million streams and earning praise from Billboard, Indie Shuffle, Ladygunn, The Wild Honey Pie, and more, he synthesizes this soaring signature style like never before on BUFFET and more to come.
