2013-2014: Illustrated


Sean Layton, also known as DJ/Producer, Illustrated, was influenced as a child to commit himself to a life in music. To this day, he strives for excellence and expresses his strong passion for his music by endlessly developing his product, performance, and unique style in the hopes of gaining a musical relationship with the world. After countless projects and collaborations in a variety of genres, Sean Layton’s drive for music fell into the electronic realm. Then, in 2012, Sean moved from Texas to Los Angeles, CA to continue his pursuit with electronic music and to take Illustrated to the next level.


Sean Illustrated

Sean was one of three artists selected out of hundreds to compete in an artist showcase, organized by Five of Five Music Entertainment, a record label based out of California State University, Northridge. He was chosen as the “Artist of The Year” where he was provided with all the elements that a record label provides, such as Artist Management, Marketing, Production, and Event Management. Upon completion of Sean’s EP “Define Me”, Five of Five released the single “Tidal Wave”. From the start, Illustrated received much acclaim and praise from popular music blogs and YouTube channels, fans, and his peers in the Electronic Dance Music community.


Sean Illustrated (2)Illustrated is said to be a “virtuoso” when it comes to combining gorgeous melodies and hard-hitting intensity in his music. Illustrated’s strive to influence varies immensely throughout many genres. He has created a natural flow when developing songs, in which they are highlighted by the combination of melody, sophisticated beats, and dream-like textures.
