Blending the infectious personality of current West coast hip hop with South England's deep, immersive, bass-driven beats, dubstep's go-to lyricist, Ill Chill, and Cella Records founder, Turner's, latest four-track collaborative EP, Victorious, stands as a pristine hybrid collection for today's biggest beat hungry bass freaks. This release proves itself a particularly effortless and ideal showcase of the spectacular creative potential of melding the two complementery worlds of hip hop and rhythmic dubstep together. Both artists brought their unique musical assets to the forefront for Cella Records' second release, as Victorious combines Turner's efficacy for producing atmospheric tracks with unforgiving underground dubstep flare and thirst for straddling the boundaries of dubstep, trap, grime, reggae, funk and hip hop with Ill Chill's calm, bassy voice and enlightened lyrical perspective on self discovery and personal growth. The fusion of Turner's curiosity for utilizing a wide variety of genres, aptitude for crafting niche songs and heavy handed production style with Ill Chill’s mind-bending, convention challenging rhymes and relaxed yet deliberate flow demonstrates how strongly the dark underground sound shines when paired against impactful hip hop vocals, and vice versa. Victorious exceeds in delivering an elevated, genre twisting, bass heavy exploration through the underground that's a must-have for dubstep and hip hop fans alike.
