For the third installment of The Producer Series, we salute two kings! Rich Harrison dominated the 2000s R&B charts, bringing back funk and go-go samples on huge hits for Amerie, Beyonce, J-Lo and Usher, among others. Salaam Remi’s body of work goes all the way back to the early 90s, blending hip-hop and dancehall for crossover acts like The Fugees, Super Cat and Nas. Mixed by Dirtyfinger and DJ Ayres, this is a battle for the dancefloor! Catch The Rub live the last Saturday of the month at The Bell House.
