Sa description

IILE is a vinyl label founded by Léo-Pol Poirel and Jean-Baptiste Messier, launched in 2015 with an attempt at creating a white label series. The ethos behind this idea was to create a blank-slate platform for Leo Pol to release as an ‘unknown artist’. Divorced from the cult of personality the idea was to create something more pure, focusing exclusively on the music. “We wanted the person who buys the record to feel a physical connection with the label”. Starting at first with the Uniile sub-label focused specifically on blank release vinyl and eventually growing to IILE (Unille stands for Unknown IILE). Where this evolution could dilute some labels it has strengthened Leo Pol and JB’s love of information-free music curation. The initial run sold out instantly, creating a cult like phenomenon. One of these buyers ripped the record and uploaded the “You Got the Funk” to their Youtube channel, the video quickly became viral reaching millions of views. The song was eventually retraced to Leo Pol and he was associated with the release, but his love of undercover artists remains a constant in his work. Influential DJs from Kerri Chandler to Margaret Dygas supported his music, culminating with legendary Mr G calling “You Got the Funk” his number one favourite track of the year. The subsequent record was credited to Leo Pol and released on the main label. With over 10k physical copies sold and distributed to 66 different countries globally the label remains completely independent. Most of the music released is from Leo Pol directly or in collaboration with other artists from the likes of Denis Sulta, Mad Rey, Marc Milner, Starving Yet Full (Azari & III).
