An OpenCampus Tea Time Talk with Dr Rowan Oliver (Lecturer in Music, School of Arts, University of Hull).
This talk will explore the way that hip hop producers have opened various breakbeat time capsules in order to engage with the groove that they contain. The focus will be on the transformative effect that different producers’ approaches have had on the way in which the breakbeats are heard.
