Salaam Remi Interview: Talks Nas, Amy Winehouse, Heavy D, Akon, Reggae and More on 'Pensado's Place'
This just might be the best episode of Pensado's Place I have ever seen.
extraordinaire Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas, The Fugees) talks shop with Dave and Herb. The trio discuss, amongst other things, the reggae influence in Remi's work, especially in relation to basslines; how Remi plays the role of psychologist, according to longtime collaborator Nas; and how a love of a particular Pete Rock and CL Smooth classic inspired a smash hit with Miguel.
In addition to this fantastic insight into the mind of one of contemporary music's greatest producers, Dave and Herb's New Year joy is infectious.
Pull up a chair, and absorb and enjoy.
Props as ever to Pensado's Place.
