Watch El-P Make a Beat From Three Random Records

08.30.13 Andy Cush

Here’s the latest episode of Mass Appeal’s great new series “Rhythm Roulette,” which asks rap producers to pick three records while blindfolded, then make a beat that samples all three. This installment features El-P, who grabs LPs (see what I did there?) from Leon Haywood, Theo Vaness, and Beethoven. After hitting the vape and sipping some Modelo, El gets to work and crafts a characteristically banging, dissonant track.
