Ice Cube’s album ‘AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted’ just celebrated it’s 25th anniversary and Complex published an interview with Ice Cube and our own Hank Shocklee discussing the making of the album and its 25-Year Legacy. They talk about the recording process, keeping the west coast bounce, the similarities between N.W.A and Public Enemy and the albums importance then and now.
“Music doesn’t exist in a vacuum, man, and neither does music happen sequentially. It all morphs…styles, and cultures shift each other.” The words from Hank Shocklee resonate deeper than an 808 kick. Here was a man directly responsible for shifting the public perception of what drum machines and samplers could do, in the process redefining music during the golden age of hip-hop, now nearly thirty years later still in tune with the latest musical trends and technology.
Our own Hank Shocklee lays out the alphabet according to him in the latest edition of Electronic Beats Magazine – Issue 2/2013 where he touches on things like Harlem, mixing on Neve boards, Kanye and Emika. The Berlin based magazine covers all the latest in the music scene throughout the world. The issue is available now in shops or you can read it online here.
