Make Music is FACT’s new section devoted to making music anywhere, whether you’re a seasoned producer or a total novice, using an arsenal of analog gear or just your iPhone

Even if you don’t know Two Inch Punch by name, you’ll almost certainly have heard his work.

Benjamin Ash is a musician, songwriter and record producer who’s written and produced tracks for Jessie Ware, Tory Lanez, Damon Albarn and Ty Dolla $ign, scoring a UK number one with Sam Smith’s ‘Money On My Mind’ in 2014.

To find out how Ash creates his chart-topping hits, FACT TV visited his West London studio to see him at work and get a glimpse of his in-demand production techniques.

While we were there, Ash gave us a detailed run-down on how he created Brighton singer Rag’N’Bone Man‘s breakout single ‘Human’. Listen to the finished product below.
