Mixed By Dr. Dre & Derek “MixedByAli” Ali
MixedByAli talks about mixing this record:
“That song was actually fun to mix. Me and Dr. Dre mixed that one. The beat is real open so you can kind of do whatever you want to it, as far as messing with the vocals. So I was just playing with some delays, some reverbs, tweak it out make it sound real eerie."
And doing it together with Dr. Dre:
“He [Dre] said that in 30 years, his whole career, he has never really mixed with nobody. I was like the first person he’s ever mixed with.
Knowing that made me feel good. Like, ‘Man this is Dr. Dre!’ He knows all the frequencies. He knows what pockets to put all the sounds in and he knows what’s missing. When the full album is done he can just hear and know it’s missing some hi-hats here. He can make you get back and ad-lib. There’s no one better than Dre.”
