Documentary: “Lookin 4 Galt” (produced by Gasface)

You might not have heard of Canadian composer Galt MacDermot but you’ll almost certainly recognise his music.

Creator of the most popular musical of all time, Hair, Galt also turned his hand to some of the most famous samples in history – without wanting to give too much away, Busta, Doom and Gang Starr all got a look in. French documentary team Gasface went in search of the elusive Galt, meeting up with some of hip hop’s greatest contributors along the way including Pete Rock, Mr Walt and El Da Sensei.
