Here is a very unusual project: an album of electronic covers of a recent hip hop album: Paul White's "Rapping With Paul White". Henry Keen aka The Room Below took inspiration from the original songs, replaying everything on drum machines and synths, and writing interludes of his own to give the record a unique flavour: a heavy analogue electronics rap record with not a sample in sight. We hope you enjoy it!
