Live from Liverpool: THE SONG INSIDE - RANGA [R]

Check The Rhime

General Jimmy

Show

Boom-bap to D'Angelo: Check the Rhime focuses 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.

It's hosted by DJ and journalist General Jimmy, who'll be joined each week by a guest discussing their love of hip-hop. It'll also explore one sample source each episode, looking at the ways in which hip-hop has taken inspiration from it.
