Izzard on:

Izzard is a young producer out of Pennsylvania starting to make a name for himself. We asked Izzard to put together a Spotify playlist of his favorite tunes new and old. The stuff that he consistently goes back to and has helped shape his individual sound as an electronic producer. The playlist is just over an hour long and features an intelligent mix of ambient electronic, 90s alternative and pop. Check it out above.

Also below you will find his latest single from Soda Island’s debut album, A Trip To Soda Island, titled “Secret Garden” is a lilting mixture of electronic, R&B and alternative.

The song is complimented by the graceful and melancholy vocals of featured artist Merival.
