“Vinyl & guacamole!” That’s how Carnage gets his creative juices flowing. Born and raised in Guatemala, Carnage grew up fascinated with producers like DJ Khaled and DJ Drama. He would go on to become a major player in the fusion of EDM sounds with vocals by hip hop artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug. But don’t get it twisted-Carnage can chop samples too, as he demonstrated when he accepted MASS APPEAL’s Rhythm Roulette challenge. Working with randomly selected albums by the Jacksons, Rick James, and Gladys Knight & The Pips, he got down to work chopping and cooking, pitching and reversing. Carnage even hopped into the vocal booth to sprinkle some of his own special hot sauce. Check out the latest episode of Rhythm Roulette right now.
