Most you know that when I conduct my interviews of producers I wear two hats: one as this site’s founder where I get into more technical aspects of production and the other for TheUrbanDaily.com where I take a more main stream approach. Sometimes they cross over.
In this clip of my interview with DJ Premier he talks about DJing BET’s The Cipher and shares how the Skull Snaps break-beat was chosen. Later in the video he also talks about going up against Dr. Dre in Vibe’s producer tournament.
I’ll have a more detailed interview in our Lab section shortly where he discusses mixing techniques and the rumors of the demise of Panasonic’s Technique 1200 turntables, along with some exclusive studio footage from our people’s at SlangRapDemocracy.
