The seventh episode features Thelonious Martin, a young producer and DJ from Chicago. Thelonious is a member of the Save Money crew (Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa), and has produced for everyone from Chance to Curren$y, Action Bronson to Mac Miller, and Pro Era to Odd Future. Thelonious—who also grew up in New Jersey—was responsible for all the beats on Jersey rapper RetcH's cult classic Polo Sporting Goods, and has released several of his own full-length projects. He was inspired to start producing after hearing J. Dilla on Adult Swim late one night; several years later, his own music has appeared on Adult Swim. Much like his inspiration, he plays heavily with soul samples, picking up the pieces of forgotten music history to make records that sound modern. If you want to hear more, his instrumental project A Dozen for Dilla dropped just last month; and you can hear 2014's Wünderkid on SoundCloud and iTunes. Part 1 is a mix by David with Charne Graham. Recorded live from Drake's Place in Logan Square, Chicago, Sunday March 5, 2017 and engineered by Nick the Roommate. Co-produced with Swim Team.
