Rhythm Roulette: Dame Grease | Mass Appeal

“I gotta get Funkadelic on em,” says Dame Grease, producer of crucial tacks for Mase, The Lox, and the whole Ruff Ryders camp. When Dame accepted Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette challenge, we knew we were in for a treat. Although he and his protege Swizz Beatz are known for a mostly sample-free sound, the Harlem-born and Bronx-raised producer can chop with the best of them. “Every producer knows you can look at the grooves and see where they thin out at,” Grease said while surveying three randomly selected vinyl albums. “That’s where the breakdown’s at.” Working his way through ‘Spinners Live,’ Jose Feliciano’s ’10 to 23,’ and ‘Romantic Swing’ by Eugen Cicero, Grease zeroed in on Feliciano’s 1969 version of ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ because he used to live in Phoenix. “Let’s go straight to that,” Grease said, dropping the needle. “Groovy! That’s the one.” Check out the latest episode of Rhythm Roulette to find out how Dame Grease flipped that joint like it was meant to be.

  1. DAME GREASE IS THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAINS. He doesn't get enough credit or should I say, the masses of uninformed hip hop heads don't know his body of work. They have heard all of this music but don't know it is him.

  2. Great work. And 10to23 is a great LP, another groove cut there is Little Red Rooster and on b-side there's an incredible guitar instrumental part on Hey Jude
