On this episode of Rhythm Roulette we’re joined by legendary producer Ski Beatz. From crafting classic tracks like Jay-Z’s “Dead Presidents” and “Feelin’ It,” to helping shape entire projects like Curren$y’s debut album Pilot Talk, Ski Beatz has been delivering top notch productions for over 20 years.
After making a quick pit stop in the BX to put Ski through the ceremonial blindfolded record selection, we headed over to his studio where he ran through each record – eventually finding some gold on Argybargy by The Squeeze.
Utilizing his Native Instruments Maschine, bass guitar, and Korg MS-20 synthesizer Ski Beatz banged out one of our favorite beats yet. The obscure drum roll, British vocal sample, and electric feel make it a winner. Be on the look out for more episodes in the future as well as new music from Ski.
