There are at least four artists using the name Imperial. 1.) Black metal band from El Salvador, formed in 2006 Imperial has gone through lot of changes, members and experimental phases, but finally has found its own style in Black Metal leaving behind any melodic or symphonic experimental stage. 2.) Imperial is a hip-hop producer. Hip-hop is far removed from its days of being isolated to small pockets located in inner city America.
It's a cultural phenomenon that has impacted countries, cities, and neighborhoods the world over. Look no further than Imperial, hailing from North Wales, UK, for proof. The latest signing to Illect Recordings may have been raised far from one of innumerable hip hop hotbeds, but it didn't stop him from learning the ropes of the genre, even if it meant honing his skills on old software installed to his computer from a floppy disc. Imperial, who first fell in love with hip hop as a youth through the sounds of Jurassic 5, has been honing his production and turntable skills for over a decade.
Just last year, he gained increased notoriety through his remixes of tracks by some of the underground elite, including Mr. J. Medeiros, The Procussions, and J-Live. Now, as the newest member of Illect's team, Imperial is excited to take his work to the next level.Make Imperial Playlist
