Ryan Hemsworth breaks down his journey in "Behind The Beat."

Ryan Hemsworth went from remixing some of the game's most popular artists, to working with the likes of Tory Lanez and Tinashe. Now, the Canadian producer is in the middle of preparing his new album, which he claims is his most ambitious project yet. "This is probably the most I've ever worked on anything, let alone an album," says Hemsworth. "It was more just locking myself in a studio for a month or two at a time and inviting whoever in, asking them to bring somebody next time, and built through that." 

He also talks about the benefits of social media, revealing that the majority of his collaborations often begin with a DM. "If I want to collaborate with somebody, I think a sense of melody is pretty key for me," says Hemsworth. "I use a lot of samples and kind of weird video-game sound synths...somebody who can sing on top of that can compliment it pretty well."
