Ill Mentality – ‘Lovin’ U4 Dayz’ & ‘Lovin’ U4 Dayz’ (ILLstrumental)
taken from ‘Lovin’ U4 Dayz’ 12” (Phat Wax, 1996)
Still heavily bogged down in real life issues, but been knocking this non-stop in the cans over the last few days. Produced by often overlooked beatmaker Nick Wiz of ‘Advance To Boardwalk’ and ‘Tip Of The Tongue’ fame (although ‘fame’ may be pushing the point a little), this gem from Jersey outfit Ill Mentality is jaw-droppingly good. The original mix is great, but it’s the ILLstrumental – see what they did there?! – that’s had me hooked with crispy drums and deft use of filter.
Shouts to Sconeboy for the hip. I’ll be back on track at some point. Maybe.
