Acclaimed DJ/producer, DJ Muggs, and Brooklyn’s heavy metal influenced hip-hop artist, Ill Bill, have teamed up for a collaborative full-length record, Kill Devil Hills, to be released on August 24th on Fat Beats Records. Produced entirely by DJ Muggs, Kill Devil Hills features guest appearances from B-Real, Raekwon, Sean Price, Everlast, Slaine, Chace Infinite, O.C., Q-Unique, Vinnie Paz, Sick Jacken, and more.
Throughout his distinguished career, Muggs has established a precedent for working hand in hand with artists and creating cohesive bodies of work, rather than spreading around beats from project to project. This rings true once again on Kill Devil Hills.
“I prefer getting in the lab and actually creating projects with people instead of just sending out beat CDs,” explains Muggs. “I’m a producer in the fullest extent, where I like to not only produce an album, but craft an album. Being able to start a record from the beginning and following through with it, making sure that all the songs complement each other. I’ve always come from making albums and producing my records; I’m still into that”
