James Vincent McMorrow is a singer/songwriter whose first albums fell somewhere on the folk music side of things. But his sound has changed over the years, incorporating elements of R&B and electronic music. On the album We Move, James worked with the producer Nineteen85, whose credits include tracks by Drake and Nicki Minaj. In this episode, James breaks down the song, “Get Low,” from that record and how it was inspired by Clipse, minimalism, and Los Angeles.

You can buy “Get Low” on iTunes.
