Illa J steadily building a loyal and supportive fanbase. Inspired by the legendary live performances of The Roots with Jay-Z and the 40 piece orchestral arrangements by Miguel-Atwood Ferguson of the work of J Dilla classic arranging techniques underpin modern loop-based structures breathing new life into familiar material. The band itself is based on the classic jazz big band instrumentation of saxes trumpets and trombones and features the cream of the north of Englands jazz scene who collectively have played with Jamiroquai Corinne Bailey Rae Mark Ronson Martha Reeves John Legend & the Roots Roots Manuva and Amy Winehouse. Yessss this is fresh. Jazz versions of Madvillain songs strong combo. - Alex Ruder KEXP Seattle Madvillain Vol. 2 follows on from the 2018 release Madvillain vol. 1 and further explores the jazz TV soundtrack and film score aspect of the original work combining it with classic big band writing and a focus on improvisation. As with vol 1. there is a strong influence of Quincy Jones Lalo Schifrin and David Shire Composer of the soundtrack to The Taking of Pelham 123 on the album and the arranger Rob Mitchell crafts his own sound that inhabits the space between Madlibs production and Quincy Jones writing. As a bonus track to the album Abstract have reworked Dabryes Air and have included the original vocal of MF DOOM. Dabryes original is heavily soaked in synths and drum machines with a futuristic production style. Mitchell explores this further and is influenced by Bob Brookmeyers late work Electricity which explores synths and jazz orchestration. Madvillain Vol. 2 will build on the success of vol. 1 which received enormous support from Gilles Peters
