Illegal Substance

The retro electro group Illegal Substance is a collaboration of childhood friends P-Nut, and Wren, aka Captain Handsome.  From the start, the concept for creation was simple, don’t set genre or musical boundaries. They combined addicting elements of electronica, hip hop, 70’s rock, retro 80’s synth pop, and anything else they could get their hands on. With a plethora of influences, and an alacrity to stand out, Illegal Substance has branded their own form of unique. The group’s maiden voyage was the self-titled album Illegal Substance, released under Moonshine Music. It featured the heavy electronic driven “Step to the Floor” and “Microphone Check”. With Punny Rico as their new label, Illegal followed up with a full length album entitled Bachelor Party.  It featured the anthem “Panty Raid”, and the unforgettable bass groove of “Banana Song”.  The B-Side Bonanza was released with a collection of popular remixes, instrumentals, and a few originals. Recently, Illegal Substance released the pop synth single “Strip Tease” which was followed by the politically charged “Neutrality” and then followed by the Nu-Disco single “Neon Light”. Neon Light has an appearance by talkbox specialist Lloyd Popp. Illegal’s next full length album is in the works.
