Back to the Lab: Hip Hop Home Studios

Published by Gingko Press Inc.
Hardcover
ISBN: 978-1-58423-684-9

Independent producers and DJs have been busy creating world class music in bedrooms, kitchens and garages for years. Meanwhile, photographer Raph Rashid has traveled the globe, gaining access to these inner sanctums, one by one. The tremendous variety of set-ups and layouts used by in-home producers is artfully documented in the pages of Back to the Lab. Intimate photos of the creators amongst their instruments, gear, record collections and ephemera offer unprecedented access. Notes about the producers, their environment and “essential” releases round out this love-letter to the underground. Rashid has been checking his list since the publication of his bestselling Behind the Beat, making sure to document the old-school producers he’d missed, meanwhile keeping an eye out for fresh new talent. Featured artists and producers include: Alchemist, Ant, Babu, EL-P, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope, Lord Finesse, Oh No and many more…
