Rhythm Roulette: P-Lo

Fresh off dropping his new album, More Than Anything, Bay area producer-slash-rapper P-Lo pulled up to A1 Records in New York for Mass Appeal’s latest episode of “Rhythm Roulette.” He submitted to their tradition of blindfold record digging and sample-based beat making with good humor, ending up with some Imperials, some Aretha Franklin, and some Iranian music.

After passing on the Iranian stuff as “too zeeky,” P settled with thoughtful head-nodding on Aretha’s powerful ‘Song For You.’ He threw the sample in reverse, pitched it up and went in. With hollow drums and skittering snares, a couple vocal percussive chops, and some bouncy ratchet keys, he flips the tune into true “collar popping music.”
