Watch El-P Make a Beat From Three Random Records

August 30, 2013 | 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.
