Rhythm Roulette – blindfold the producer, get them to pick three records from a store, take them back to the studio and sample them to make a track. Sound easy enough? Mass Appeal’s series has seen some big names take on the challenge. 9th Wonder, Tom Misch, the late Mac Miller, and most recently Rockwilder have all put their stamp on the show.
Tracklib have teamed up with Mass Appeal to give you the chance to play for yourself, and maybe even win a trip to New York. Rockwilder will be judging entries, and the winner he picks will be invited to join him for a studio session at Def Squad studios in New York City.
Tracklib is a website dedicated to providing a library of pre-cleared tracks that can be sampled by producers for use in their own tracks. They’ve set up a slot machine style interface that will let you “spin the wheel” and given three tracks at random for use in the competition. The site hosts over 100,000 original songs available for sampling, and is used by artists like Brockhampton, Mary J. Blige and Vic Mensa.
