Rhythm Roulette: London On Da Track

For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, MASS APPEAL met up with one of Atlanta’s most influential producers, London On Da Track. As a mainstay in the city, London has played an instrumental role in the development of Young Thug’s career, crafting some of the greatest hits in the enigmatic ATLien’s catalog. His time in the studio with Thugger has blessed the world with standouts such as “Lifestyle,” “About Da Money” and “Check.” Let’s also not forget London’s work with other heavyweights, as he was the mastermind behind 21 Savage and Drake’s collab “Sneakin'” and crafted more bangers for artists including French Montana, Gucci Mane, Birdman, 2 Chainz and many others. Who knows what the sound of trap music would be without London?

True to his discography, London decided to bring that sound to Rhythm Roulette. Taking his chances, he pulled three records from A1 Records in New York. London chose Phyllis Hyman’s Living All Alone, Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s Blacknuss and a house record from Jesse Saunders. Making quick decisions, London ended up sampling Kirk’s cover of Marvin Gaye’s classic “What’s Going On” and finished with surprising results.
