“In recordings, it was Quincy Jones on Michael Jackson‘s Bad album. There’s little bits and pieces that if you weren’t listening straight to the songs, you wouldn’t hear these amazing things going on.
"Like with “Speed Demon,” there’s this amazing riff that happens. It’s this incredible synth run that goes up and down and takes about one second to happen and you would never notice it as just another pop listener, but as someone who’s into what’s going on with the making of music it’s amazing that it’s going on. It enhances the song so much, this amazing little thing.
It was one of those moments that still happen now, like you listen to some producers and some musicians and you have to laugh because it’s so ridiculously good. It’s the audacity of doing it. I had it recently. When a song can make me laugh ’cause of how ridiculously good it is, that’s when it’s great.”
