HF® Exclusive Interview — Music Producer, Tall Black Guy | HF®
Author: Clark Kennedy, HF®
Terrel Wallace (a.k.a.Tall Black Guy) is a highly respected hip hop music producer in the rap game — who’s literally BLAPPED UP Grandma’s soul vinyl collection into classic hip hop productions of our time.
Record Store Day - April 19, 2014 - London
If Music, one of London’s finest vinyl purveyors, has put together a stellar line up of unplugged performances to celebrate Record Store Day on Saturday. We’re big fans of Iñigo Ugarteburu, Andrew Ashong and Jessica Lauren so you’ll surely fine us down there at some point that day.
Bonus? Marc Mac signing copies of his RSD 7˝ inside the shop.
On a Saturday morning at the start of November 2013, First Word Records took 3 of our favourite producers out of London to spend the day browsing through the vinyl shelves of the biggest record nerd we know - the incomparable Mr Thing. This was the culmination of an idea that first manifested itself on Record Store Day 2012. Like most ideas it was a natural conclusion to a conversation about records and music - kidkanevil had expressed a desire to dig through Mr Thing’s sizeable collection for some inspiration. Chatting to Mr Thing it seemed unfair to limit this to only one producer - Tall Black Guy and Eric Lau were top of our wish list. So - a double 7” (Mr Thing would make a beat too - they are his records after all) in time for Record Store Day 2013 (yes, we’re a year late). There was however one stipulation about the records from the usually mild-mannered Mr Thing:
‘The guys can sample anything they like, but Nothing Leaves The House….’
And who were we to argue…..
The result is four tracks that celebrate our love for record digging, sample chopping and the simple love of a dope beat.
