Frank Ocean’s Blond(e) Gets Bleached To Its Roots By !llmind (Audio)
It’s safe to say that with the release of Blond(e), Frank Ocean has delivered one of the year’s most sought-after musical content of 2016. His inclusion of Andre 3000 only added to the fervor, with music fans justifiably clamoring over any new material from the Outkast MC who has never dropped a solo LP. But regardless of guest features, Frank Ocean’s latest stands alone in its genre – which itself is far more than contemporary Soul.
No blend of genres is intimidating to a producer like !llmind, however. The New Jersey mastermind has worked extensively with a swath of Hip-Hop artists ranging from Andy Mineo to Ludacris, and his 2015 collaborative project with Joell Ortiz, Human, is still in heavy rotation. Today (August 24), he continues to showcase his prowess in not only production but also reinvention with his Blond(e) remix album, featuring six reworked tracks.
