Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, begins its fourth season today with Frédérik Durand aka SNAILS.
Shot during a stop on last year’s World of Slime Tour, the brainchild behind Slugz Music and the former OWSLA affiliate sits down with hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace at SON Studios in Las Vegas. Together they dig through the crates, selecting a fistful of records that helped inspire the Montreal, Quebec producer/DJ. SNAILS hand picks classic rock standards from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, and Led Zeppelin, the latter which leads to a backwards playing of “Stairway to Heaven” to reveal supposed Satanic messages, much to SNAILS’ surprise. SNAILS is also caught off guard when exploring early Def Jam / Rick Rubin pick “Angel of Death” by Slayer, which leads to a mining of Public Enemy’s “She Watch Channel Zero.”
SNAILS’ appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 36th episode in the series and the first new episode of the year, which launches the fourth season of the show. Forthcoming episodes of season 4 will include rapper Rittz and Fool’s Gold producer/DJ YehMe2, formerly of Flosstradamus.
