For the last Rhythm Roulette of 2016, we linked with the man responsible for some of this year’s biggest tracks: Charlie Heat.
The Grammy-nominated Charlie Heat is a name you’ll be seeing a lot more of in 2017. Since working with Lil Uzi Vert early on, the Jersey artist Charlie Heat caught the ear of Kanye and has been on a tear ever since.
We headed to Philly to see how Charlie comes up with this stuff. After hitting up a record shop, he walks out with The Best Of Fabienne Delsol & The Bristols, Mutabaruka’s The Mystery Unfolds, and a Lou Reed record. After he finds his first golden sample, he slowly adds layer after layer for a certified banger. He continues hunting within the records and ends up making a whopping four beats in total. But for the final beat, he decides to work from the ground up, building it from scratch.
