The New York native throws it back with an old school house hit which is quite the standout on the label’s recent Fresh Cakes Vol. 2 compilation.
“My vision for the track happened late at night in 2016. I wanted to make something that felt like it came off of a white label vinyl. Some super bootleg underground shit. I remember finding old house records that were ripped off vinyl and made it onto early blogs in like 2006 and on. I wanted that vibe. You know, the ones you would have to go through hoops just to hear — they were always poorly mastered or just recorded badly but the content was so great,” Who’s John explains.
“When I made ‘Thrill Ur Mind,’ I wanted something intentionally dirty and bootleg-y. Drum focused with BIG hats and some strange shit. I found a groove in the repetition with the vocal and the drums. It was meant to be sort of a DJ tool/bootleg thing at first, but then it evolved.”
