Hurry up and wait” is the longtime inside joke for those on set, but it’s not usually the mantra at The FADER FORT where everything moves very, very fast. Except for The-Dream, who gave a performance yesterday that one woman said caused immaculate conception. After his set, he was swifted away to the backstage tent where a large man with his arms crossed stood guard. We had a FADER TV interview scheduled, but Dream took his time, so we stood around and waited. Unfortunately that meant waiting until the beginning of Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy’s set. Which meant it was really loud, which is never the right time for an interview. Fortunately, video producer Sarah Riazati had a pair of Beats By Dre headphones to make sure everything sounded right. “We have two recorders, with earbuds plugged in to one and the Beats headphones plugged into the other and the difference between in audio quality is huge,” says Riazati. “Especially when recording in loud situations. This is the perfect way to not be distracted by loud audio and booming bass.” The interview went off without a hitch, with The-Dream talking about his grandfather, his love of a good curse word and why he’d taken such a long break from performing. Watch it on FADER TV soon and take note of how good it sounds.
