Rhythm Roulette: Hi-Tek

0

In this episode of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal presents Hi-Tek.

Not to be an #oldhead, but if you’ve never delved into Rawkus Records and Soundbombing, you’re seriously missing out. We’re talking about Eminem, young El-P, Mos Def, Talib Kweli. Plus, the production-par-excellence, and a big part of which was coming from the one and only, Hi-Tek. We linked up with Cincinatti’s own for our newest episode of Rhythm Roulette, featuring Spirit’s Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus, The Routers’ Superbird, and Elvis’ For Ol’ Times Sake. Tek cooks up a soulful, bassline-heavy beat, clowning Elvis all the way (“What’d Chuck D say?”).

Rhythm Roulette: David Banner

0

Stream / Buy the track here: https://MassAppeal.lnk.to/DavidBanner

This latest installment of Rhythm Roulette is a special one. Not only did we get to hook up with Mississippi’s own David Banner for a blindfolded spin through Atlanta’s Wax N Facts and follow-up session out at Tree Sound Studios, this episode also documents the making of the first Rhythm Roulette record to ever become an official release. You read that right. After Banner pulled a few GEMS out of the bins—Chicago’s VII, Gladys Knight & the Pips’ About Love and the Meters’ Cabbage Alley—and broke out the sage, we should have known right then and there that Banner was going to cook up some marvelous shit.

Building on the back of Chicago’s “Call on Me,” Banner and crew— former Rhythm Roulette participant Gensu Dean, Burroughs and Tricky LT 45—flipped the soft rock cut’s hook and horn stabs to deliver a smooth new payday anthem full of Southern soul. The resulting track, “Paper,” is out now on Mass Appeal Records and available on iTunes, Apple Music and Soundcloud.

“That is what hip hop is supposed to be about,” Banner said about the Rhythm Roulette series and the session. “We couldn’t afford a bass player. We couldn’t afford a guitar player. We couldn’t get studio time like that. That’s what sampling was about. Opening up opportunities to people who don’t have them.”

Shout out to David Banner for not only braving the blindfold and accepting the challenge, but for stepping up and delivering in a major way. Watch the session above to hear the finished track and see how “Paper” was made.

Aybee – Against The Clock

0

Oakland house veteran Aybee goes Against The Clock from his Berlin studio.

Drawing on jazz, deep house, techno, hip hop and blues, Oakland-born Armon Bazile has been making music as Aybee since 2004 as well as working alongside Ron Trent as Indigenous Space People.

Bazile’s Deepblak label has become an important hub for like-minded producers such as Damon Bell and Afrikan Sciences. Raw, deep and unbound by tempo and style, the imprint’s music bridges the gap between club music and freeform electronics.

Following the release of his fourth album The Odyssey, FACT TV caught up with Bazile at his studio in Berlin, where he jammed out a track in 10 minutes in his typically improvisational style.

How to Make An – AraabMuzik – Track

0

Let’s face it – no one does it like AraabMuzik.

The Rhode Island producer got his start making beats for Cam’ron’s Dipset label in 2006, and his breakthrough 2011 mixtape Electronic Dream is one of the 10 best albums of the decade so far.

Since then he’s worked with A$AP Rocky, Busta Rhymes and 50 Cent and released his debut album Dream World despite being shot on two occasions. He’s also regarded to be one of the best producers in hip-hop today for his unique way with the MPC sampler.

We linked up with AraabMuzik in his studio in the Bronx for the latest episode of our How To Make A Track series. During the session he gave us a detailed, step-by-step masterclass on the techniques and methods he used to produce ‘Flex’, a collaboration track with Fabolous and Tory Lanez.
