LABEL MANAGER & PR SPECIALIST, QILLA RECORDS
"Qilla Records Bio
An endless array of alternate realms.
Qilla is an anomaly, towering hundreds of feet above the surrounding flat land that stretches as far as the eye can see. In each cardinal direction stand bastions, with a vantage point to observe unfamiliar and new movements from miles away. The massive stone walls possess intricate art work, painstakingly constructed by skilled craftsmen.
Inside the fort are chambers for every mood and every state of mind with sounds that are gentle and fierce, euphoric and dystopian. A single personality shaped at the hands of hundreds over time and space, resulting in an endless array of alternate realms.
On rare but welcome occasions, the fort slowly opens its gates, the solid iron doors part to let people into a world defying imagination. This fort, built in 2011 is full of resonant sounds of times gone by and times to come, drumming a rhythm, a melody, a soundscape where you can lose or find yourself.
