Hot off the heels of releasing his entry into De Wolfe Music’s Art of the Sample series, Blockhead joins the Let the Record Show crew to wax poetically about classic tracks that have shaped his taste. His selections include golden era hip-hop classics from the Native Tongue family and the Juice Crew, indie rap staples from MF Doom and Latyrx, “dirty rap” from Willie D, as well as rare grooves and soul standards from the likes of Cymande and Stevie Wonder.
A hilarious episode filled with obsessive music minutia and behind the scenes stories, Blockhead also discusses the creative process behind his 2017 album Funeral Balloons, which in his words, was made from “cratedigging in Ubers and sampling from YouTube.”
Hosted by Mike Pizzo (Cuepoint, Reef Dispensaries) and Warren Peace (Executive Producer of As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ AM), Blockheads’s episode marks the eighth entry into the series. As longtime journalists and former vinyl record shop owners, the duo employs encyclopedic musical knowledge that is as eclectic as their DJ sets.
