Scoop DeVille Makes a Track With Three Random Records

Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette is one of our favorite series on YouTube. It’s always interesting to see how sampled-based producers put together tracks, especially when done on the fly with random records.
For the latest episode, Grammy-nominated producer Scoop DeVille creates a track using albums by James Taylor, The Righteous Brothers, and Aztec Two-Step, which he picked up at Scotty’s Record Shop in New Jersey. For those who don’t know, Scoop is best-known for producing Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” and “The Recipe” and Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock.” Most recently, he produced Snoop’s “Back Up” (currently number fifteen on DJcity).
Watch him work his magic above.

Scoop DeVille: DJ Quik Should’ve Been the Original Dr. Dre

DJ Quik is often regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all-time but Los Angeles producer/rapper Scoop DeVille believes he deserves more shine.
When asked during an interview with VladTV who his top hip-hop favorite producers are, Scoop praised Quik for his instrumentation and said he “should’ve been the original Dre.”

“I feel like he’s musically a genius — he’s insane . . . he could use this whole board and know what it is does in and out and I hardly even know what half of it does.”

He also discussed his new group Watercolor Werewolf and upcoming collaborations with Wiz Khalifa and Travis Barker.
Scoop is best-known for producing Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock” and Kendrick Lamar’s “The Recipe” and “Poetic Justice.” He is the son of Kid Frost — a veteran west coast rapper who’s famous for the 1990 hit, “La Raza.”
