Hank Shocklee MP3

Another spoken-word entry, to complement yesterday’s. Hank Shocklee, one of the core producers of the Bomb Squad, the hip-hop studio crew that threaded noise into backing tracks for the likes of Public Enemy, Doug. E. Fresh, Son of Bazerk and other old-school rappers, spoke at length to an audience courtesy of Red Bull Music Academy about early looping techniques, how to use chaos to best complement Chuck D’s preacher-like voice and what was lost and gained in the move from analog to digital (MP3).
