Eestbound, who seems like a chill bro, begins by explaining how he and WondaGurl came across the Lee Fields "All I Need" sample and flipped it into the cornerstone of the "Antidote" beat. He then incorporated original guitar, pitched his favorite snare drum, and made a few other key creative decisions. Watch the full episode below.
