Rhythm Roulette Illustrates the Art of Sampling

For at least a year now the magazine Mass Appeal has been producing a Youtube series called Rhythm Roulette. The premise is simple: a producer has to make a beat from three records he picks at random. Some sessions aren’t great – there’s a reason why a lot of records are never sampled – but other producers are able to whip up really solid beats, proving the creativity and technique that goes into making good hip-hop. Here’s the session with DJ Nu-Mark, but be sure to check out the whole series.
