DJ Mentos recently released his latest creation entitled Field of Vision (12 tracks, 30 mins). This project marks a new direction for Mentos, focusing on jazzy instrumentals instead of his usual boom-bap hip hop beats. This album is a short but intense trip through Mentos’ dusty crates and unique production style.
The sound he has concocted features strong rolling basslines, crisp hard-hitting drums and wailing horn solos. Inspired by both modern-day producers and traditional jazz musicians Mentos has a unique style that has hip hop in its heart and jazz in its soul.
