Fonce Mizell  HELL UP IN HARLEM.jpg
Fonce Mizell passed away yesterday. He was one-half of one of the distinctive and beloved production duos of the 1970s (and via sampling, of the 1990s, you might say).

Check out Jeff Chang’s interview with the Mizell Brothers, at the Red Bull Music Academy, from a few years back.

And most definitely check out Matthew Africa’s 2010 tribute to the Mizells.
