Alex shared with us his insights into the production side of things for ‘BLACK’
“I chopped up a dope folk/choir sample and laid some hard-hitting drums & 808’s to complement the sample. The song concept was influenced by the protests during the summer 2020 surrounding the unjustifiable deaths of black Americans.”
‘BLACK’ follows up Alex’s recent hit singles Reparations, Look at Gold and Shining Up which currently stands on an impressive 164,000 streams on Spotify alone.
It’s clear that Alex Fortes music is that of which so many people could relate to. It’s honest, elegant and brilliantly prominent all at the same time.
