I feel one of the best ways to discover ways to make a file is simply to hearken to how different information are made. So the higher stuff you hearken to the higher your music will sound. There aren’t many information round that may beat Trevor Horn’s productions. This and Chill out by Frankie goes to Hollywood are a manufacturing masterclass.
Sandii – Zoot Kook
That is precisely the type of bizarre pop music that I like so I look to it for inspo rather a lot. It’s produced by Haroumi Hosono from Yellow Magic Orchestra who're an infinite supply of inspiration for me. I like the opening line: “met him in an elevator, cool as a fridge”. It’s so dreamy and visible such as you’re going into her world.

Prince is my final inspiration. It’s arduous to decide on simply 1 tune of his however currently ‘Scorching Factor’ is the one I hearken to most for concepts. Additionally that is from the ‘Signal O the Instances’ album which was the one performed probably the most in my home once I was a bit child so it feels prefer it’s in my dna.

Every so often a file comes alongside that blows everybody else out of the water and Frank Ocean did this for me with Blonde and Channel Orange. They had been my albums of the final decade by a great distance. I all the time return to them and my thoughts is blown each time.
