While fans often get to see A-Trak perform DJ sets, they rarely get to see his creative process as a producer.
However, the former Grammy nominee has showed Genius how he produced his latest single “Believe” on a new episode of Deconstructed. The track, which features Lil Yachty and Quavo, currently sits at No. 7 on DJcity’s Hot Box chart.
In the video, A-Trak says he recorded the song a year ago but stored it away for a few months. He breaks down the changes he made to it over time, including adding a playful sound inspired by the Rugrats theme song. A-Trak also recalls getting advice from his brother Dave 1 from Chromeo and Fool’s Good artist Promnite.
