Veteran producer, Rob Blake a.k.a iLL Audio, has spent the last several years experimenting with different styles of music like a scientist looking for the perfect formula. Sharpening while expanding his skills, Blake has, as the album title suggests, known no boundaries. The path he took has branched off in many directions, but the entire time was always leading up to the culmination of his efforts manifesting in the form of his debut album.
This twelve track journey is as impressive as it is diverse. Fusing nearly every style of bass music with the cathartic powers of rock, reggae and symphonic elements, the album lives up to its name while retaining a unique style. It’s an ode to contemporary music, tastefully thriving off the tension in the differences and similarities within the clash of styles. Imagine Tipper and Amin Tobin had a love child that was raised by dubstep & DnB, and sang in choir at the school of rock. Each track is an adventure on its own, featuring a fair number of recognized collaborators, but the album as a whole paints a much bigger picture. I recommend listening all the way through when you get the chance.
Distinctive Records is holding on to this opus until April 1st, but they gave us some goodies to tie you over until then. Below you will find a preview mix of the album as well as an exclusive download link to one of the tracks. Make sure you mark your calendars for the release, and remember where you heard about it first.
Been in Florida my whole life nurturing a love for all beats that break. Never released a track, but I’ve been producing for nearly 15 years and playing out as a DJ for at least 8. I ran Floridub.com on the side (until godaddy stole it form me) and also write for NuSkoolBreaks.co.uk as well as FloridaBreaks.org and Breaksculture.com. You can catch me mixing on the award-winning NSB Radio station every Tuesday night 8-10pm (EST).
