For our final Rhythm Roulette of 2016, we linked up with the producer behind some of the year’s biggest tracks: Charlie Heat.
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 G.O.O.D. Music’s ears and has since signed to the label as a promising producer. He’s been consistently delivering quality remixes (Kanye’s “Facts” & Ty Dolla’s “Campaign”) and original tracks (Vic Mensa’s “U Mad” & D.R.A.M.’s “Cute”). You can check out more of his work down below.
We headed to Philly to shoot our latest Rhythm Roulette with Charlie Heat to see how the man 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.
