New tracks that DJs should know about.
Mass Appeal has featured veteran producer Salaam Remi in their Rhythm Roulette series.
The series challenges producers to make a beat by sampling three random records, chosen from a record store while blindfolded.
Remi is best-known for producing old school anthems like Ini Kamoze’s “Here Comes the Hotstepper” and The Fugees’ “Fu-Gee-La,” along with more recent hits like Nas’ “I Can” and Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire.” The Queens, New York native also contributed to Amy Winehouse’s studio albums Frank and Back to Black.
Watch above to see him make a track with three records, which he picked up at A-1 Records in New York.
