Some find their place over a steaming pot, dodging the spitting grease from the fryer or sweating profusely on the steaks sizzling on the grill. Cooks find their calling in the kitchen, Producers like Rico James cook in a different space. Beaten drum pads, dusty records and unclogging gunk trapped under the needle on the turntable is where you might find him. Sampling, chopping, creating and then repeating. Both approaches are quite similar, ingredients have no less meaning and of course it’s the secret dash of seasoning that is always the truest addition. What does this all have to do with anything or to matter to you the reader?
Man Bites Dog Records and all their wisdom has teamed up with Rico James to give the world “Rico De Gallo.” What is this project with a fantastic pun of a name? It’s a beat tape of course, full flavor and to indulge your senses even more, we included an outstanding salsa recipe. Yes, that’s right friends!! Chips, Salsa and beats. We bring the salsa (recipe) and the beats, all we ask is you bring the chips. Let’s party on March 3rd!!! And Don’t be afraid to ask for seconds! The 1st Instrumental single “Lemongrass“ is out now on All Digital Platforms! Pre-Order the project via the Man Bites Dog Records Bandcamp!
