Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock: It Takes Two
on 04 May 2014
Last weekend the music world lost two influential members: Chicago house producer DJ Rashad passed on Saturday, while Sunday saw the death of hip-hop's Rodney "Skip" Bryce, better known as DJ E-Z Rock and one-half of the duo behind the 1988 hit "It Takes Two." EZ-Rock's longtime friend and music collaborator Rob Base tells Rolling Stone, "Skip was a joker. He was a good DJ, but everybody just loved him for who he was; just a funny guy." And of the video they made themselves for a track which reached widespread admiration, "Skip's dancing was him just clowning around and being the joker that he was and they filmed it. Everybody loved him."
