The Songs:

The Official !llmind Remix Album is chock full of new re-workings by some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Put together by producer !llmind, the album is highlighted by a remix of the classic Slum Village track "Look of Love." !llmind takes the old school, laid back flow of the Slum Village crew and makes it sound dark and sinuous, "Slum Village was the group that I listened to when I was introduced to Dilla's music," says !llmind, "their style is very distinct, and vocally they act as if their rhymes are 'instruments' complementing the beats. I thought it would be fun to re-create that feeling with my own twist." Break beats and eerie, staccato keys make the track crawl along at a sly pace, and soon enough it has an entirely new feel.

!llmind's group, Fortilive, is featured at the end of the album with four exclusive tracks. Joining !llmind in Fortilive are emcees Mushmouf and Slo-Mo, and both make their presence known on the track "Trunk Pop Music" with intense, in-your-face verses. With !llmind's super-heavy, organ-filled beat, the entire track bumps perfectly for your enormous car stereo. In fact, when the chorus comes around with a funky bass sample you're pretty sure that your bumper is going to fall off before your trunk pops. Listen to this track and just try to not nod your head. Look for more exclusive Fortilive tracks and !llmind remixes on The Official !llmind Remix Album, out on MYX Music Label.

The Background:

After growing up in New Jersey, Filipino-American hip hop producer !llmind made a name for himself competing in the Beat Society against some of the largest hip-hop acts of the day. After gaining his first placement on Akrobatik's "Remind My Soul," !llmind has worked with and produced for Little Brother, Supastition, 50 Cent, Eminem, Redman, Scarface, LL Cool J, Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, Strange Fruit Project, and more. His hip-hop group Fortilive mixes his production skills with emcees Mushmouf and Slo-Mo, both natives of Oahu, Hawaii. The group is signed to MYX Music Label, the same label that, along with NahRight, 2DopeBoyz, OkayPlayer, and Audible Treats is sponsoring !llmind's remix album.
