Chart-topping producer Louis Bell sat down for an interview on the music production show Pensado’s Place. Bell co-wrote and co-produced many of the songs on Post Malone‘s album beerbongs & bentleys, including the hits “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage and “Better Now.” The Boston native also worked with Post on “Wow.” and Preme‘s “Jackie Chan.”
In the interview, Bell talks about his studio sessions with Post before discussing his creative process, favorite plug-ins and more.
“I think that’s what creativity is, is taking something so small and being able to manipulate it and bend it and stretch it out, and, without watering it down. That’s the key.”
On what he looks for in his artists’ vocals:
“Feel, energy, vibe, and emotion. There’s no app yet that can fix that stuff, so that’s why I demand that.”
On what makes Post Malone unique:
“He sounds like he has so much soul and pain… and just hearing him sing, I just felt everything he was saying… There’s not one line that he sings, that he’s just singing to sing it.”
