Party Supplies kicks off the inaugural installment of Mass Appeal’s new “Rhythm Roulette” series.
The gist of the challenge is as follows:
The idea behind Rhythm Roulette is simple: take a producer to their local record shop, have them pick out a specific genre they’d like to choose from, blindfold them, and have them select three records. The producer then takes us to their lab, chops up some samples, drum breaks, etc., and creates a beat from the randomly selected records. In our inaugural episode Party Supplies crafts an instrumental from three randomly selected records from the funk and soul sections at Brooklyn’s Academy Records.
