The premiere episode of J-Zone’s new Red Bull Radio show Give the Drummer Some made its debut on Tuesday (February 5th). For the first episode, J-Zone sat down with Questlove of The Roots, for a super deep conversation about technique.
Quest covered a lot in an hour span of time. He talked about his early days, first linking with Black Thought, the origins of offbeat drumming, the first time his mind was blown away by J Dilla, and more. The most interesting part — and the part that took up the most time — was Quest talking about his work with D’Angelo.
After mentioning that he had the opportunity to work on Brown Sugar, Quest went in deep on the making of Voodoo and the Black Messiah album, which dropped 14 years later.
