Artist Spotlight: DJ Rell
DJ Rell excels in his ability to chop and loop vocal samples into a catchy rhythm that will make you bounce along. His remix of ScHoolBoy Q’s “Man of the Year” is a great example of his wit and attention to detail. I don’t want to spoil it, but the chopping and looping of this sample is pretty clever and reason enough to check this track out.
Hint: “Bounce on a …. !”
Rice Rain is a favorite off of Cashmere Cat’s Wedding Bells EP. The original has a very relaxed vibe with a rain drop sample that is very fluid throughout the track (pun intended). I love how DJ Rell picks up the beat in his remix and adds more bounce to make this track a lot more fun.
If you’re not already hooked on DJ Rell by now, here are three more tracks that should do you in for good:
Bonus- Trippy Turtle dropped his new mix of “Na Na” on SoundCloud this morning. It features vocal samples from the Trey Songz track and all I can say is wow… Trippy Turtle knows just how to chop and loop those vocals. So on point.
