Watch: 40 Minute House Mix Edition of ’20 Minutes With DJ Delta’

Italian turntablist DJ Delta returns with an extended episode of his video mix series, 20 Minutes With DJ Delta. In this edition, the 2016 Red Bull Music 3Style Italy champion digs deep into his foot-stomping house crates and delivers a soulful set.

Delta notes that this set features his typical scratches, tone plays, juggles, and remixes, and is twice as long because “house music has a long mixing style, with drops and vocals that create a journey into the groove.”

Watch Hit-Boy Explain How He Made Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Backseat Freestyle’

Producer Hit-Boy recently sat down with Genius for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Backseat Freestyle.”

Though not a top-ten Billboard hit, Hit-Boy notes in the video that the energy of the track still leads to moments that are “too epic.” He highlights the way that the sing-along hooks ride over the track’s scattershot percussion as particularly impressive.

Hit-Boy’s three-year stint in the G.O.O.D. Music camp yielded top-ten Billboard chart productions like Kanye West and Jay-Z collaborations “N**gas In Paris” and “Clique.” Working with Kendrick Lamar in 2013, the Los Angeles-native producer notes in the clip that he felt a brotherhood with Compton-bred K. Dot, making the collaborative process relatively simple. He takes us through the production layers that comprise the track, showing a deceptively simple brilliance to Lamar’s bell-ringing, sing-along club anthem.
