Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.44.08 PM

For this installment of Rhythm Roulette, we connected with Extra P, aka Large Professor. We took the legendary Queens producer to Human Head Records in Brooklyn, where he picked three random records to begin a game of Rhythm Roulette. He ended up grabbing an Instant Funk record, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes’ Black and Blue album, and Shirley Scott’s On A Clear Day. From there, Extra P began to go through the records and create some new heat from what he picked.

Interesting to say the least.

Hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Keith Ape made hip-hop history with the international hit “It G Ma” fusing Japanese and Korean lyrics with an Atlanta trap sound.

After bringing their anime and Asian influenced styles to multiple tours across the US and Canada, Keith Ape and his Cohort Crew have become admired by American and international fans and artists alike.

“Rhythm Roulette” with Scoop DeVille

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 1.47.27 PM

For the latest installment of Rhythm Roulette, we tap Scoop DeVille to chop up some random records and conjure fire. DeVille’s credits mostly reside on the West Coast with old and new school artists, including Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” and “The Recipe,” and Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock” ft. Jay-Z. But, dude gets down on the East as well, working with Fat Joe, 50 Cent, and Tony Yayo. We caught up with him in New Jersey as he thumbed through the crates at Scotty’s Record Shop, picked three random joints, sparked some herb, and flipped the records in the stu.

DeVille was no doubt influenced by Dre and how he repurposed P-Funk growing up in Los Angeles, but dude can seemingly reimagine whatever. He flips the Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody,” precisely chopping the hook. Pat Swayze was probably dirty dancing in his grave to that joint. Then he laces Aztec Two Step’s twangy folk guitars with quick hi-hats and bass drums, which will loosen your license plate holder from the trunk rattle, before layering with vocal samples from his library. If that Aztec beat ends up on somebody’s project in the near future, it would not be a surprise. It’s a shame he didn’t get a chance to work with James Taylor’s brand of blues-y folk rock. It seems like just a few clicks from DeVille and fire come through the speakers.
