Interview - Mike Skinner (The Streets)

Dat het produceren van een nieuw album niet altijd even makkelijk is, daar weet Mike Skinner (The streets) alles over. Net op het moment dat alles rond zou zijn, gooit ie alles in de prullebak, want meneer is niet tevreden met het resultaat.
“It was quite well written and the rhyming was really good from a rap point of view but you were just left kind of empty so there wasn’t much to really stimulate people. So I got rid of about 80 percent of the songs on the album and then started again. I felt pretty disastrous really. It was a year’s work up till that point, it wasn’t a very happy place."

Opnieuw beginnen dan maar en dit keer met echte muzikanten ipv met samples.
"I just read an interview with Radiohead and they were saying you always forget how hard albums are. I think that’s true. It’s been two years in the making really and keeping up…knowing that the light at the end of the tunnel is really far away, the task is a very hard task, but I think you always forget how hard the albums before were as well.”

Hoe de nieuwe songs klinken? “Smoother, nicer and more detailed”. Afwachten maar!
