Ishq, formed by Matt Hillier and Jacqueline Kersley, are based in St Ives Cornwall, UK and have been making music for two decades under various guises including Indigo egg, Ishvara, and Elve. The duo’s sound plays with IDM electronica, deep ambience and new age overtones.
Ishq means “love” in Persian and Hindi, and is used by masters like Rumi to express love of the divine and of all of God’s creation. Ishq’s music has something of this romantic spiritual quality, and could be described as music of the heart.
Matt and Jacqueline also run Virtual (3), a limited edition CD label which releases their other studio works.
