Building Beats with Blockhead
Blockhead on a lifetime of sampling and moving from crate-digging to digital archive diving.
Tony Simon—a.k.a. Blockhead—is a music producer from NYC who's been making beats for over twenty years. Aside from his solo work, Blockhead's produced for Aesop Rock, billy woods, Marq Spekt, and Illogic, as well as one-off projects and remixes.
Tony and I sat together in a hotel lobby after one of his shows in London to talk about how he builds his music.
Blockhead talks #process, #sampling, and #ableton. In another words, perfect for any music nerd ;) Building Beats with Blockhead is part one of a two-part interview. The second part 'Tony, You Blockhead' will come out on the 26th of June.
