Memories Of Paul C McKasty…Revisited Documentary – Pritt Kalsi

UK-based Hip-Hop aficionado Pritt Kalsi has just dropped a revised version of his lengthy documentary looking at the life and work of legendary producer Paul C., who worked with the likes of Eric B & Rakim and Ultramagnetic MC’s before his untimely death in 1989.


Words From Pritt Kalsi:

Some few years ago I made a film about the legendary Queens Producer and Engineer Paul C McKasty. Although his life was cut short his hands and ears worked on some of the most revered hip hop albums of all time.

He also mentored many including Organized Konfusion and most notably Large Professor. When I made the original film I put it out via my site to get the attention of some people who originally where very difficult to get hold of. Partly to schedule and also that Paul passing has left deep holes in many people’s lives. I’m an outsider making a film about someone that passed on long before his time.

After seeing my film and how I told the story many came forward to contribute. In 2015 I met up with Large Professor in the UK and filmed a piece towards the project. DJ Cool V shot a piece himself and sent it to me, as did Phase from the group Phase and Rhythm not forgetting K Cut from Main Source who I was able to shoot whilst on the Main Source Tour.

I had always intended to revise the film but as I was working on my new film my computer had no space to complete the film. I since purchased another mac to handle other projects, since I never went back to NYC this year I took the time off to work on my projects and deliver a film about a man who the world can benefit from knowing about his contribution to this wonderful world of music.

I would also like to thank Reno from the Paul C Movie project that offered to clean up the audio for me and also allowing me to use some of the pics from there Instagram page.

Note this is a very low budget production that came about as I had accumulated so much footage over the years whilst working on my projects that I took to putting a film together.

Here is the revised version of the film, Memories of Paul C McKasty..Revisited. I would like to thank all those that supported the film – Jim Slice for allowing me to use the footage from his film Skull Snaps. Marc Davis, Lindley Farley and Casanova Rud, CJ Moore and Large Professor for their constant support.
