  • The vibe is weird.

  • Every time I explain to people, people look at me funny.

  • So basically, when I made the beat I was thinking of clouds.

  • Like clouds in a jungle filled full of love.

  • But not love from a girl.

  • Love from life, and appreciation just a nice fluffy, bouncy.

  • Do you hear it?

  • If you hear the beat, you're gonna hear it again and be like, “Okay. He's not a madman.”

  • I first got into producing in secondary school, which is high school.

  • When I was like 13, 14, we would do music technology classes music classes, and I'll

  • just be there in there.

  • As a hobby, just making beats.

  • I didn't know I wanted to do music there and then, or be a producer there and then

  • but I knew I wanted to do music I should say.

  • I was very fortunate actually.

  • My mom's musical palette was crazy.

  • She listened to Bob Marley, Kenny Rogers, Carpenters, African guy names Daddy Lumba.

  • Then you get the Michael Jacksons, Stevie Wonders.

  • All of those in the household every Sunday morning.

  • It just comes out in the music.

  • Yeah.

  • So I really have to thank her to be honest.

  • She's the plug.

  • When I was making the beat, it was just a vibe.

  • To be fair, when I was making the beat, I did think of Drake but it was one of those

  • ones when you're a producer, you make the beat. You think, who am I gonna get on it?

  • He was one of the guys but I didn't make it for him.

  • After the BRIT Awards show last year, Drake came to the Section Boyz show in Shoreditch.

  • And that's where it started.

  • So I was introduced to Drake.

  • I sent music to Drake, but I didn't know it was Passionfruit until close to the release date.

  • It's crazy, because I had no idea.

  • And then bam, it just comes.

  • So the intro onPassionfruithad nothing to do with me.

  • That's all Drake's and his people's genius.

  • All the Zoë Kravitz stuff, the Moodymann, they're geniuses.

  • Whatever they add to a song is gonna work.

  • So, forPassionfruit” I started with the keys.

  • I don't necessarily always start with the keys.

  • It changes depending on how I feel, but in this one I started with the keys.

  • I'll play it here.

  • This is a NN-XT in Reason.

  • I like these keys because they are not the conventional electric keys but they sound

  • really smooth.

  • When I lay down the keys I was thinking, it needs more movement.

  • So I added a house bassline.

  • Nice little pattern here.

  • It's like a obvious house sound that a lot of house legends have used.

  • I layered it as well with a high one.

  • So I had all of these elements in the song.

  • And I was thinking it's missing something.

  • This is a pad I actually made myself.

  • Everything added together.

  • So it just sounds nice.

  • It's got body now.

  • It's kind of big now.

  • Added some hi-hats.

  • Pretty simple groove.

  • There's a shaker in there as well.

  • I like to use these disco hi-hats when I'm making funky dance songs 'cause it gives

  • it more of a live feeling.

  • Nice, soft 80s kick.

  • I thought the drums needed some movement, just something little, so I added the little

  • percussion.

  • Then I added the snares, and all the other drums as well.

  • A lot of disco music, a lot of funk music always have the claps and the little snare

  • fills in every eight or four bars.

  • I thought I'd add some myself.

  • I added this vocal chop.

  • Pretty simple.

  • There's a breakdown in the track where I added a moody piano.

  • I thought the piano was very moody.

  • It needs more of a nicer sound to it.

  • Then, I came with the iconic flute.

  • This flute is a NN-XT flute.

  • I added distortion on there and also a reverb on there.

  • As you can see in the key roll I pitch-bended some of the notes.

  • And all together it sounds like this.

  • With everything playing together it also adds to the whole jungle. The clouds thing I was talking about.

  • Then that's basically like, apart from arranging, that's basically the basics of the track.

  • I'll play you what I was going to add in there.

  • You guys are the first people to hear this version actually.

  • When I finished this beat, I knew this was a good beat because I have a thing where I

  • would listen to beats over and over again when I really like it and this is one of them.

  • So I knew it would be a big beat I just didn't know how big or who would use it.

  • And then by the grace of God it became what it became.

The vibe is weird.
