Ludwig Göransson, the producer of Childish Gambino’s “Redbone,” has taken part in Genius series Deconstructed to break down the making of the song. The Swedish producer previously worked with Gambino on the Culdesac mixtape from 2010 and working with Gambino marked his first time working in the realm of hip-hop. The video explains the story behind the making of the song, revealing that the producer’s Swedish upbringing meant he was previously unaware of Funkadelic and the band’s influence, so he listened to it on the recommendation of Glover. Watch the video above to see just how Göransson achieved the sounds heard on the standout single.

“Awaken, My Love!” will also see a virtual reality vinyl experience release soon.
