will sessions Will Sessions   Memory Lane (Instrumental)

Earlier this year, Detroit emcee Elzhi boldly released Elmatic — his re-interpretation of the Nas’ classic Illmatic. Eyebrows everywhere were raised as not only did Elzhi impress with his lyricism, but the sound of the album’s classic production was re-created with stunning precision by the Detroit band Will Sessions. By using the original sample sources as a foundation, producer and bandleader Sam Beaubien recorded each player’s part individually and reconstructed each entire song from scratch, ensuring that it maintained the same mood and vibe of Illmatic. Demand for the instrumental versions from Elmatic led to a deal with Fat Beats Records for the recordings, and The Elmatic Instrumentals will be released worldwide on September 27 on CD, 180g Vinyl, and digital formats.
