SiD Mercutio aka Roland Ikponmwosa Idehen is a DJ that has transformed his skill into production and sound creation. As a Computer Studies and Sound Recording major, his intellect matches his production, bright, unique and systematic.
Fly in My Starship is a remix of the original track entitled “You are My Starship” by Norman Connors. Sid Mercutio, takes only a portion of the original, and creates a memorable track that I believe Norman Connors would be proud of. It’s interesting that the remixed track is called “Fly in My starship” because the track contains a series of bleeps and foreign sounds that when merged, sounds alien in nature. The track is lush to the core and a smooth rendition.
The name lives up to the production. This track definitely shares some of the same qualities as the original which include the piano, flute like sounds. Fly in My Starship leans on the hip-hop end of production, but with the right vocal range, this would definitely be a hard hitting R& B Track. Sid gets props on this production.

Aint No Sense
SiD Mercutio brings it back yet again with this track called “Ain’t No Sense.” All I have to say is Ridiculous (I like it alot)!
This is a very fresh and track with Sid on the production, bass and tambourines. The bass line is killer and all the other instruments ride on its coat tail. The drums have the familiar boom bap style, hard and grimy. The ambient samples and voices just float through the track like guerillas in the midst. At about the 3:30, a viola or violin of some sort enters the tracks and heightens the quality and style of Sid’s production. The track is very tight, ends on a high note and is worth a listen.
