Mike Dean Releases the Intro for Travis Scott’s Next Album
Mike Dean has seen his profile rise in recent years thanks to his work with Kanye West and Jay Z. But the legendary producer was the man behind some of the finest work in southern hip-hop history as he crafted beats for the likes of the Geto Boys, Scarface, UGK, Z-Ro, Big Mike and Devin The Dude.
One of Mike Dean's more recent collaborators, Travis Scott, apparently found the perfect beat for his next album courtesy of Dean's SoundCloud page. The producer just released an epic track called "Grande Faucon" which was made during a weekend at the Moog Music Factory.
Using "6x Mother-32 synthesizers to create his sonic palette and a Voyager XL as his master controller," Mike Dean concocted this powerful beat. And Travis Scott was so impressed by "Grande Faucon" that he claimed this production would be the intro for his sophomore LP.
"This actually the intro to my album," Travis Scott wrote on Twitter yesterday (April 20). It seemed like Mike Dean was up for the opportunity as he let Scott know what's up.
"Getting it started," Mike Dean replied to Travis Scott on Instagram with a video of him setting things up.
Moog Music also released a video on YouTube that captures footage of Mike Dean making "Grande Faucon" during a 48 hour stay at the Moog Music Factory. You can check that out below and listen to the entire track up top.
