Kelela, Tink, and DJ Dahi Make “Songs From Scratch”
Three the hard way ... from scratch.
In their video series “Songs From Scratch,” adidas Originals and Yours Truly team up to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at up-and-coming artists collaborating on new material. The latest episode features Fade to Mind-signee Kelela, Chicago songstress/rapper Tink, and DJ Dahi (producer of Drake‘s “Worst Behavior” and more) in Encore Studios in California creating the track “Want It.”
The video shows DJ Dahi producing the track from scratch while Tink and Kelela improvise on the melody and lyrics. The ideas mesh well and leaves us wanting to hear more than the mini-clips presented in between their analysis of collaborating with each other.
Check out the full process the three artists went through to put the song together above, as well as a snippet of the track.
