Violentlyill - The Iconoclast (Review)

(Ill Records 27th November 2020)


N.I based beat-maker Violentlyill has just released his full length, all instrumental album "Iconoclast" on Ill Records. Listeners are in for an absolute treat here and for those that don't know - "an Iconoclast is a person who attacks settled beliefs or institutions" this is exactly what he sets out to do on this wonderfully produced project.


Remixes by:

Sumgii

Chemo


Recommended Tracks:

Unstable

Vividly

The Coffee Shop

Hard Times


This ain't your average beat tape bulked up then haphazardly thrown together and passed off as an actual release - A lot of hard work and time has gone into crafting this dusty Boom Bap offering. There's clear intention and a continual theme running throughout, sonically it's really diverse yet still recognisable as a product by the same producer. The beats are complex as a multitude of vocal and spoken word samples are sprinkled generously throughout the multi-layered tracks giving it a unique and appealing sound.
