Mix premiere: DJ Marvel – This One Time At Bandcamp…

Tuesday 04th, April 2017 / 10:14
By: Vanessa Tam

Some trends in rap music are as fleeting as Justin Bieber’s leaked nudes; they’re over almost as soon as they materialize.

The resurgence of the flute in rap music instrumentals, however, isn’t just a minor drop in the bucket of rap trends. Local producer and DJ Marvel, also known as Michael Henry, took it upon himself to put together a mix that celebrates the past, present and future of flute rap. “Over the last year or so, producers like Metro Boomin, Murda Beatz and Zaytoven have been using flutes in their production,” mentions Henry. “So I decided to ride the wave from now to back in time and visit some of my favorite rap songs that salute the flute. Enjoy!”
