Watch Jordan Rakei create a soulful track from scratch in our new series

The first episode in DJ Mag's new Originals series, Beat From Scratch

DJ Mag's new series, Beat from Scratch, is a unique insight into an artist's creative process in the studio.

Starting from a blank session, each artist builds a track from scratch in their own style, exploring everything from drum and synth programming to mixing, arrangement and more.

In the first episode of the series, neo soul producer Jordan Rakei makes a soulful track from scratch in Logic Pro in his synth-heavy London studio. Layering drum samples, keys and vocals, Jordan shows us how he makes his music from an empty session to a full arrangement.
