Dre Skull Talks To The BBC


The Mix Pak Records founder sits down with BBC for a wide-ranging interview. Along with discussing his 10-track EP with Santigold and reflecting on his production work for Lily Allen’s Mercury-nominated No Shame, he also gives an insight into working with Popcaan:

“We were in the studio at his house in Kingston. He [Popcaan] put on the instrumental for that song and said ‘Keep it on repeat’ – and then at about 3am, he went to sleep with it playing very loudly. After about three hours he got up and immediately went in the booth and recorded the whole song. It was a kind of spiritual connection that he received.”
