Rhythm Roulette w/ Erick The Architect [Video]

Ask and you shall receive: Erick “The Architect” Elliott joins us on the latest episode of Rhythm Roulette.

After linking up at Brooklyn’s Human Head Records, we headed back to Erick’s studio, where he carefully excavated his three random selections—Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye’s Diana & Marvin, Amnsety’s Free Your Mind, and Jackson Five’s Dancing Machine—for hidden gems.
