Lewis Jankel, better known as Shift K3Y, has been signed since he was 19 – and with good reason. The talented British producer has managed to slide effortlessly between electronic subgenres and craft Beatport-topping hits with some of the biggest talents in UK music.

Among his biggest collaborators are Stormzy, Jess Glynne, Becky Hill, MJ Cole and Tinie Tempah. And while spends a decent chunk of his time working from his smartly specified home studio, he’s also got a taste for the finer things, working in flagship facilities such as SARM and Metropolis.

In this episode, learn which monosynth he always turns to for bass, how exactly he would use one of the most famous guitars on the planet, and why you should be extra careful when working with powerful vocalists. And stick around for his extraordinary polysynth choice and unparalleled luxury item choice.
