To me BINK! is up there as being on of my all time favorite producers. The way he brings records together with that hard, grittiness, smoothness is just remarkable. His drums are also out of this world, I really enjoy the records he produces.
In this episode of Rhythm Roulette, BINK! heads to the record shop , The Groove, in Norfolk, VA. He does what most all the producers that are featured on the show. Blindfolded as he picks three records from the Dilla section. Side note: You know that you are a influential producer when record stores have a section of records that you used to make your music. Anyway watch how he uses the records he picked to create in my eye a wonderful banger.
