The classically trained Saïd Daghelfi is an artist based in Paris, France. He started learning and playing music at 5 (piano, viola, clarinette, percussions…) and experiencing electronic music with synths at 14 and studio recording sessions at 17 as an arranger.
Multi-instrumentalist and composer, he wrote many songs and played live for many years in varied style bands: bassist and drummer in rock and jazz bands, keyboards and synths in an electronic band (Purple Spirit). In the late 90’s he performed live music with parts of improvisations on stage with synths and hardware. After then producing Deep House, 2-Step and Electronic music (S.Dee, Mysterious City, Phenomena…) and producing early Downbeat music in 2000 (Eddie S.) he started to compose and produce the Chill Out/Balearic/Downtempo music as IËLO in 2007, with quality releases and remixes in all its sub-genres (Nu-Jazz, Future RnB,…)
The music of IËLO is featured on numerous compilations around the world since a decade.
His ambition for making music has always been and still remains modern, very open and having no boundaries.
