Over the past year or so we have seen some rather fresh making-of videos from producers and musicians such as Marco Polo and Dwele who wanted to showcase just what goes into crafting one of their tracks. And while those were pretty impressive, the above visuals depicting Hot Sugar, aka Nick Koenig, making a beat from scratch are, for lack of a better term, ridiculous. Should we expect anything less from the Creative Control crew, though?
It might seem a little bizarre at first, what with the tattooed older gentleman banging on a drum while Koenig plays tambourine and records it all. But it quickly grows addictive to watch as you hear and see each part of the beat coming together. The ultimate pay-off, of course, is hearing how it all comes together at the end, but don’t you be clicking ahead and spoiling it for yourself!
