Rhythm Roulette: Mr. Porter

Mr. Porter makes a beat for Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette and instead of the usual three blind picks he only chooses one record because it was all he could afford growing up in Detroit. He chose disco group Silver Convention’s Golden Girls album from Amoeba Music in Los Angeles and made three beats from one song. Porter is accustomed to working fast because he told the audience how he, Proof and J.Dilla would have 10-minute beat-making contests.
