Nicolay City Lights: Volume 1.5
- Words: Rico "Superbizzee" Washington
- Label: BBE
After critical praise for the landmark file-swap creation Foreign Exchange, it was inevitable that Dutch musician/producer Nicolay would shop his beats Stateside. And what better way to do so than by serving up a batch as an official release. Intertwined with vocal drops, shout outs and cross fades, it plays more like a mixtape than a beat reel. Following a trend set by sound smiths like Pete Rock, J. Dilla, Wajeed and 9th Wonder, this instrumental crop of mellow, head-nodding tracks is just the kind of fix that aspiring MCs fiend for.
