The makers of West Coast Theory went in-studio with Aftermath producer Focus. The producer offers a peek into his recording environment and explains his approach to creating music, thoughts on software, and experience working with Dr. Dre.
Throughout the interview Focus illustrates his process of crafting a beat from working with the original sample to layering drums, recording, and playing live bass.
Sometime I do sample, but I try my best to stay away from it cuz I just know it’s a pain.
