True Pairing: The-Dream & Tricky Stewart

The-Dream & Tricky Stewart have been one of pop’s most successful production and songwriting duos of the past decade and it should please longtime fans that they’re keepin’ at it… and “scratching the surface of what we’re capable of.”

That’s what Tricky says in this great new mini-doc with FADER that takes us into the studio for a detailed studio session and sit-down interview. Both Dream and Tricky have some quotable gems as they both touch on their own individual creative process and how they work with each other.

For instance, The-Dream talks about creating from a completely free platform, which is probably the most core element to take out of the doc. Tricky elaborates on their chemistry and how him being from Chicago and Dream from Atlanta allows for two different perspectives and genres of music they grew up on creating a unique merging of ideas, sounds, and tastes. There’s only so much to paraphrase that I really suggest you take a full watch of the quick 5 minute video.
