Summary

Despite being one of hip-hop's most in-demand producers, Illmind has never before released an official album of his own. The New Jersey native, who has provided soundscapes for hip-hop royalty like 50 Cent, Eminem, Little Brother, Redman, 2pac, and Scarface, will team up with Nature Sounds on April 19th to release his first instrumental project, Behind The Curtain. To give fans a true look "behind the curtain," Illmind will also be releasing the album's audio stems (drums parts, bass parts, horns parts, etc.) through a download card in the first 1000 CDs.

While hip-hop producers are known to operate in secrecy, !llmind hopes to inspire the next generation of track masters. "The purpose of the album is to showcase the love that I have for unique and innovative ways to put together beats," he explains. "There are different techniques I've learned throughout the years, and I'm hoping production fans take notice! I know my fellow producers will have fun with the stems." To celebrate the album, !llmind is also launching a new remix contest. Using the stems to the BTC track "Next Round", producers are challenged to make the best (and most original) beat using ONLY THOSE SOUNDS. The winner will receive a $100 credit to the Nature Sounds store (which offers CDs, Vinyl, T-Shirts, Hoodies, Slipmats, and more). !llmind will pick the winner to the contest; enter at illmind.bandcamp.com .

When he's not in the studio creating, !llmind stays busy. His collaborative album with Skyzoo, Live From The Tape Deck, was recently released to critical acclaim, and his monthly live producer showcase "B.L.A.P." has become the premier platform for the top young production talent in the Big Apple. In addition, !ll teaches at NYU's Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music, schooling the next generation in a class called "Future Music Moguls." For his album, though, !llmind has decided to place the focus back where it started: on the beats.

Comment: Beats are hollow with modern, overly compressed sounds... as usual for illmind. Not my bag of tea, neva will be. I agree he's got nothing, no soul or warmth like Damu and many others killing it. He seems to be kind of a poser just doing whatever is hot at the moment to fit in and stay relevant. its working, so good for him but im not on the band wagon. and yes, the cover sucks!
