Today we continue our string of shorts culled from the documentary footage for “DUST: the Art of Sampling,” this time chopping it up with legendary Chopped-and-Screwed DJ (and co-founder of Swishahouse and the Chop Stars) OG Ron C at a DJ Screw retrospective at the University of Houston.
Now would also be a good time for a project update. Though “DUST” was originally slated to be released this past summer, we have now partnered on the project with sample-based music platform Legitmix so that the scope of the documentary can include even more artists and personalities. This is truly a unique and exciting collaboration for both teams which will result in one of the most-thorough explorations of sampling ever produced.
Enjoy this clip with the legendary OG Ron C in which he discusses the legacy of DJ Screw and how the Southern mixtape game has evolved, and make sure and stay tuned for more DUST FILES as we move forward, folks.
