004. This Can Be Anything, Still (Zack Sekoff)

When Vince Staples' Big Fish Theory dropped earlier this year, it was all Pierce Engineer & I could listen to. Learning that one of the producers on that album - Zack Sekoff - was a huge Ableton Live user, we of course wanted to reach out to him to learn about his process & how hear how he puts his beats together. What we got was a lot more than we bargained for as Zack not only explained the technical side of his production but also went deep into philosophical discussions on Live, developing & executing musical concepts, & the importance of staying open minded about where inspiration can come from & where a track can go. This episode serves as a collection of those ideas & is worth any producer's time to learn from.
