Making a cheap drum sound great with Fouk

During ADE 2018, we went to see Hans Peeman and Daniël Leseman, better known as Fouk, for a house production masterclass.

During the full breakdown of the track "Mating Call", they grabbed a cheap Djembe drum and showed us how they deployed multiple production techniques to integrate it into the song.
