CHICAGO, IL, USA, January 8, 2018 / -- On January 8th, synthpop veteran Illuminatè Steele’ released two new videos from her forthcoming album Davidian Sex Club, which is scheduled for release early this spring. Illuminatè wrote and produced "A Darker Shade of Heaven" and "Desire By Design(The God Complex)(rMx)" at Terrarium Studios, located in the heart of Minneapolis, MN.

In a press release, Illuminatè explained the personal significance behind "A Darker Shade of Heaven" as being "an ode to embracing universal beauty and the insatiable hunger of desire." Illuminatè states "There can be no appreciation of heaven without acknowledgement of hell. No light without darkness, nor a full appreciation of love without knowing the experience of the loss of it." Illuminatè adds her unique brand of avant-garde synth wave to both tracks, adding a funkier, more inclusive sound for all listeners in the underground alternative scene. When asked about her experience filming the video for "A Darker Shade of Heaven",Illuminatè said "I feel that I have been blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with true professionals who were already masters at their craft. I consider every one of my projects a group collaboration, only because it would be wrong to hoard all of that for credit myself. We are all artists here and we all deserve to have our work appreciated." When asked about her experience working with "The Tesla of Tease" Minneapolis based LUSH burlesque performer Elektra Cute,Illuminatè stated " Elektra was a true joy to work with. Not only is she beautiful, but she is a true master at her craft. She possesses a very powerful aura of energy. So when I saw her perform, I knew I had to have her for the video. She was my first choice, because she literally is the best in the Midwest." You can find out more about Elektra Cute at
