Check the Rhime focusses on hip-hop music culture since its inception in 1973, from the disco and funk breaks of the seventies up to the leftfield lyrical concepts of now.
It’ll run with a slightly lucid interpretation of the genre – as well as obvious boom-bap, music from the likes of D’Angelo and Thundercat might get thrown in too. Anything that shares some form of genealogy and revolves around break-based sampling and/or emceeing.
For April, Chris Carney steps through to host Check the Rhime for the second time. This month he will be playing cuts from iconic black movies from the 1990’s including New Jack City, Do The Right Thing & Juice.
