I’m not sure what Illmaculate was going for with this. The beat is all over the place. Perhaps the name “Skrill Talk” is a nod to Skrillex with this weird Dub Step ish type beat.
What do you think?
Late last month, Illmaculatereleased his latest album,Skrill Talk. On June 2nd, the Portland, Oregon, rapper will celebrate the album’s release with a show at Branx, but before then, Illmaculate is joining his Sandpeople crew for a string of European tour dates. Today, to kick off the tour announcement, Illmaculate is releasing the latest single from Skrill Talk, “One More Time,” featuring Sandpeople.
The song, produced bySoleternity, is Illmaculate’s response to the pressures of an industry driven by release dates and timetables; he wants to do things his way – and with his crew by his side. “My crew, Sandpeople, definitely had to be on the album,” remarks Illmaculate, noting that the song’s feel is representative of the Sandpeople process for making music. “This song really has its own vibe within the scope of the album, but it works,” he says, “just like everyone in the crew had their own approach to the song, while still remaining cohesive.”
Later this month, Illmaculate will be hitting the road with the rest of his Sandpeople crew, as they head overseas for a string of European dates. The tour kicks off May 12th in Sweden and makes stops in Germany, Amsterdam, London, and more, before winding down on May 26th in Oslo, Norway. A full list of dates can be found below.
In other news, on June 9th, Illmaculate, who, since 2004, has proven himself as one of the most accomplished battle rappers in the world, will travel to Los Angeles to take part in the KOTD Vendetta competition. In what will be the biggest battle of his career, Illmaculate will be matching up against Arsonal, while Canibus and Dizaster will also be battling at the event.
