“One of my favorite artists is Floating Points and he's always at 110 BPM… I'm a drummer before a producer… that tempo lends itself really nice to writing amazing grooves,” he explains. “I'll take 110.”
As far as picking artists for the album, Guy said they simply went through iTunes and hand-picked the artists they like from their library. With their worldwide connections, the duo has plenty of scouts helping connect the dots. He praised Lorde for her percussion skill as well.
