Here is a very unusual project: an album of electronic covers of a recent hip hop album: Paul White’s “Rapping With Paul White”. Henry Keen aka The Room Below took inspiration from the original songs, replaying everything on drum machines and synths, and writing interludes of his own to give the record a unique flavour: a heavy analogue electronics rap record with not a sample in sight. And it’s a free download. Just click here or look to your right >>>>>>>>>>
The Room Below gives you the chance to hear the likes of Danny Brown, Homeboy Sandman, Jehst and Guilty Simpson in a whole new light: just check the electric funk of “A Weird Day” or the way Henry Keen recreates the squalling guitar on “Rotten Apples” ft Tranqill with a synthesiser.
And if you never heard it, don’t forget to listen to the original version of “Rapping With Paul White“!
