While listening to the melodies of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy I always thought it would be interesting to meet the man behind the mixing boards. Well, his name is Andrew Dawson. The Los Angeles Times recently chopped it up with him about his involvement on Kanye’s album.
Describe how you started working with Kanye West. And what do you think it’s taken for you to be successful working with him prior to his latest album?
