Mindsone teams up with Kev Brown and deliver something brilliant right off the bat on this cut titled ‘Equinox’. The Kev Brown produced joint evokes that feeling of the early 2000s, the grave piano loops and thick neck snapping drums totally hit the right spot and is a sure win for me. Hey, it’s Kev Brown, what did you expect?!
The collaboration project Pillars will be released on the 1st of April and you can always pre-order it via the link below.
First single taken off the MindsOne & Kev Brown “Pillars” EP, available worldwide April 1st(CD/LP/cassette/digital) on Ill Adrenaline Records.
MindsOne reunites with legendary Low Budget Crew producer Kev Brown to offer hip-hop connoisseurs another round of boom bap driven instrumentals and lyrical inspiration in the form of “Pillars”. Following the success of their critically acclaimed album “Self Reliance”, the MC duo of KON Sci and Tronic began conceptualizing an exclusive new EP with the bass-minded beat maker’s talents in mind. Concise and thoughtful, “Pillars” explores notions of loyalty and mortality, laments the stagnation of modern day musical creativity, all while celebrating the limitless possibilities of the culture. A tall order for a compact record, but the combination of Kev Brown’s instrumental virtuosity and MindsOne’s authority over the spoken word aims to achieve just that. The EP features a guest appearance from the ingenious Homeboy Sandman along with instrumentals from up and coming producer Sam Brown, and a brand new remix of “Legion of Doom” by MindsOne stalwart KON Sci.
