From humble origins in Detroit, raised on a healthy diet of Motown, Jazz, and Early Hip‐Hop – Terrel Wallace (aka Tall Black Guy) has been consistently building a massive online following through a steady stream of productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops ‐ being championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson (who included him on the Brownswood Bubblers 7... album), Lefto, Anthony Valadez, and countless others ‐ as well as recently being named the winner of the Robert Glasper Remix competition. With the tangible beginnings of worldwide recognition, Tall Black Guy has established himself to be one of the most influential producers from Chicago.
2011-2013 has seen TBG's first vinyl releases with bstrd boots, First Word Records, Ubiquity Records and his own imprint Tall Black Guy Productions. Plus projects with artists like: 80s Babies, The Primeridian, Malice & Mario Sweet, DJ Vadim and The Electric, Maylee Todd, Temika Moore, Teri Tobin, Skyzoo, The Colman Brothers, Cilla K and Shev Rock.
It was dope enough to be chosen by Gilles Peterson to be a part of Brownswood Bubblers 7 compilation, but to be chosen as one of the best tracks from the bubblers series has definitely made my week!
