Childish Gambino’s “Awaken My Love” Starts with the angelic notes from the opening of “Me and Your Mama” all the way through the playful bliss of “California” and ending with a triumphant “Stand Tall”, “Awaken, My Love!” is a modern masterpiece and one of my go-to references for mixing because of all the dynamic range and crisp production. Gambino has channeled the spirit of artists past such as Rick James with songs like “Zombies” And Prince with the iconic “Redbone”.
Childish Gambino’s “Awaken My Love” is a rollercoaster ride filled with emotions that evoke a sonic bliss that has rarely been seen throughout modern music history.
It is easy to see that Gambino is a student of music and artists of the past. His Vocal production on “Awaken, My Love!” keeps you guessing and tantalizes the soul with a smooth and silky delivery. It is clear that blood, sweat, and tears went into the making of this instant classic.
Redbone” is a testament to the production style using old school tactics such as call and response, and actual instruments!! In fact, much of the production has taken away any of the digitized sounds of the “new” era and replaced it with warm and organic guitars, drum kits, bass, and wonderful keys.
