Cinematic is an apt title for an Illy album. The evolution of Illy (Al Murray) as an artist certainly lends itself to the idea of film. It's the tale of a smart and idealistic hip-hop storyteller who put everything on the line and, through honing his craft and sheer hard work, made it work.
Displaying a musical range that people might not expect from a hip-hop artist Cinematic is a record that moves, like a film, through different moods, scenes and locations, with a revolving cast of characters adding their voices to the overall narrative. Boasting Australian hip-hop legends Hilltop Hoods ('Coming Down'), and Drapht ('Yoyo'), as well as Daniel Merriweather (on the epic soul of 'Save Me'), and Kira Puru on 'Talk', it's a guest cast to envy.
