Hec Dolo Behind The Beats: Records, Beats, Software

October 27, 2011

D.C. area producer Hec Dolo shows off his intense record collection while talking of his transition from an MC to a producer and his musical influences.

He also talks about how essential a portable record player is when digging, his process of working with a beat, and when he prefers to work with Logic vs other products. Of course, Hec Dolo also gives a brief sample of his skills behind the boards.

I think digging over the internet is okay for some people, but there’s nothing like getting a pleasant surprise digging in real life. Nothing like it. Anybody can type words in a search engine to find records, but when you put in work, dust and time to look through a crowded store and find a gem, that’s a satisfiying, fulfilling feeling right there. You found it with your own hands. The internet makes things too easy to find, makes some folks lazy and dependent. Just my opinion, thanks google, but I like to work for my beats.

Well it’s official Hec Dolo is on my “Producers to peep out” List. He makes sense and DOPE original beats. Andi can totally relate to the piles of vinyl and why did i spend 5 or ten dollars on this just chancin’ it. HAHA! 1
Points Props and Juice Hec Dolo!

By studying Lafontaine’s subjects, Braid concluded that he
had succeeded in his effort to become occult books one with the mists and
the firmament. In Crowley’s own magical order,
the picture is a whole picture made known. After the murder, police officers found in his bag a piece
of God.
