“ I’ve always been obsessed with collecting vintage synthesizers and I now have accumulated probably 15 in my home studio and one of those vintage synthesizers was a ‘Juno 60’ from 1982 it didn’t even have MIDI in it yet and I went home one night being the huge nerd that I am it was actually 4 o clock in the morning I just played a B minor chord and then a A flat diminished chord and I was like ‘wow, there’s there is not a lot of pop records with an A flat diminished chord in them’ so I kinda just carried on, sped the song up, changed the keys a couple of times and then it was 6 o clock in the morning and then my brother walked in and he had to go to LAX he had to fly somewhere, he asked what I was doing and I something him being there made me want to make the song even better like show him that I’m a good like I’m a good record producer so kinda like a ‘oh, I’ll show you’ kinda thing and I just put this beat on and it sounded like you know I was walking out of a club in 1982. I drove to my friend’s house on this street called “Nightingale” which is in the Hollywood Hills I played it and it sounded like it was the soundtrack of my driving and then I sat on the song for a couple months, thought it was just gonna be an album cut and uh I sent it to Kehlani she put her um her beautiful voice on it and uh that just made it really really special. The End”. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share.
