After garnering attention through beat battles and party gigs across New York and New Jersey, MentPlus is straight-up snappin’ necks with his new single “All My Friends.” The addictive instrumental demonstrates that there’s a lot this Brooklyn dweller has up his sleeve, and that includes an EP that’s due out in just a few weeks, which will serve as the prequel to a full 20 track instrumental LP.
“All My Friends” shares its sound with some of the greatest to ever do it, a little Dilla in the drums and keyboards, a touch of DJ Premier in the low-key griminess. But once the track’s 82 seconds of dopeness drift by and you’re hitting the play button again, you realize the sound is uniquely, MentPlus. And it’s that feeling that makes his upcoming Stormy Nights project that much more anticipated. That only goes double for the lucky few who have stumbled across his gem-filled SoundCloud page, a highly recommended bookmark if we say so.
You can listen to “All My Friends” below, and be sure to mark Sept. 23 on your calendars, because that’s when his Stormy Nights EP drops, via High Water Music.
