MENTIS Release ‘Excuses’ (Ft. Kate Wild), First Big Dance Hit Of Summer 2021
by Geoff Ford
Liverpool-based artist Mentis teams up with vocalist Kate Wild to release his debut record Excuses on Columbia Records UK. Excuses features spaced out vocals, thumping kicks and a catchy M1 synth top line, reminiscent of classic 90s house anthems. The debut track is already looking like the soundtrack of summer.
With early support including BBC Radio 1’s Party Anthems, the record shot straight into the Shazam Top 200 and Dance charts after its very first radio play, showing the track resonates well with audiences. Excuses has since picked up additional plays and radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Kiss, Capital Dance and more.
Kate Wild, who provides the vocals for the record, has previously been featured on tracks by ShiftK3y, Hot Since 82, Luciano and Low Steppa.
Mentis caught the attention of Liverpool record label and management company Sinister Sounds. The record label was founded in 2016, established as a branch-off from the iconic SIN Events, and specialises in dance music. They have broken some of the best up and coming artists within the industry including Anto, Ben Rainey, Bissett, ESSEL and Lyle M.
