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 – is back with its “Socially Distant Series” of video-conferenced episodes. Episode 46 features rising producer Malik, best known for his Grammy award-winning work with Ariana Grande, as well as JID, Earthgang, and No I.D.’s ARTium Recordings.
Hot off the heels of the release of his new single “Violet” – the latest from his forthcoming project Spectrum – Brian “Malik” Baptiste joins hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace to dig through some of his favorite songs of all time. The Austin, TX native chooses a diverse palette of tracks that includes some of the greatest songs of all time, such as cuts from Queen and The Beach Boys to obscurities from Bon Iver and Julie Andrews. They also explore the sample connections between Kanye West, Elton John, and Steely Dan.
Malik’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 46th episode in the series and the eleventh episode of Season 4. Guests on previous episodes this season have included Sofi Tukker, The Free Nationals, R.A. The Rugged Man, RJD2, Little Brother, Cam O’bi, Dudley Perkins, YehMe2, Rittz, and SNAILS.
