Rhythm Roulette: Salaam Remi

For this edition of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal linked up with Salaam Remi.

Getting his first taste of studio work with Kurtis Blowe, Salaam Remi was destined to work with some of the greats like Nas, Amy Winehouse, Fugees (The Score), Ini Kamoze (“Here Comes The Hotstepper”), Jurassic 5, and more. He’s also worked on soundtracks for films like Office Space, Zoolander, The Departed, and Blood Diamond. He’s most recently been working with Bodega Bamz, Joell Ortiz, and Nitty Scott as No Panty.

After hitting up A-1 Records, Salaam ends up with George Faith’s Soulful, Danny La Rue in London, and The Who’s Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy. Putting his faith in George Faith, he finds the backbone of his beat and then pulls some samples from the others. Joell Ortiz also makes a short cameo to comment on the work-in-progress beat. Watch the full creation process above.
