Ilirjana Alushaj is an all-round talent originally from Australia and now in living L.A. via New York. They're lucky to have her. Originally on the musical map with her band Apache Beat, these days you're likely to find her working closely with the likes of Puff Daddy and record producer Hit-Boy, writing TV shows, DJing and running her own publication and label, The Pop Manifesto. Like Ilirjana herself, her mix is a good time with impeccable taste and a smart sense of humour. Press play and feel feelings.
