Dre Skull Fader Interview

The Fader interviewed Dre in conjunction with the new Blacklight Riddim release! Head here to read in full and a snippet on how it was made below:

I built Blacklight riddim a number of years back and recorded Tifa’s “Rock My Body” on it, thinking it would be a Mixpak single. Before I released it, RCA heard the track and wanted to use it for Shakira, with their idea being to keep the hook and rework the verses. So for about a year or so it was on hold with them. They got a number of different writers, from Angela Hunte to Verse Simmonds, to write verses with Shakira in mind. In the end, Shakira went in a very different direction and it wasn’t used. Once [RCA] passed on it, I started playing with the track and reworking the instrumental a bit and decided to release it as a proper riddim, so I took it to Kingston this past February and got some new voicings.
