THE PRODUCTION

The Beat is a simple ponpon beat laced with the usual Afrobeats shekere. What differentiates this beat from others is the skillful use of the baseline and electronic guitar. The Electronic guitar is played at different pitch and was even played as a slayer adding some rock music element to it. Although the rhythmic keys if just a basic grand piano sound; the way the baseline is bumped created a different type of energy.

Also there is attention given to the transitions of this beat. There is extensive work on the transitions and underlying sound effects to add color to the sound. This created a kind of cinematic effect to the beat mixing which is just unique. From hooming sound to alien sounds, this beat is a motion picture in music. Pheelz has come of age in production and it is showing in every song he has been producing.
