How to make a Flava D track

Watch and learn. 

Flava D is one of the UK’s best club producers. Her meteoric rise began in 2012, releasing a string of belters on Butterz, contributing to the legendary Fabriclive mix series and collaborating with close friends DJ Q and Royal T as t q d, who make some of the finest garage and bassline being released today.

Having been responsible for FACT’s favorite episode of Against The Clock ever, we decided to visit her in her London studio to see how she makes a track with no time limit. Offering a rare insight into her production process, Flava D gives a step-by-step guide to everything from arranging drums to crafting a build-up.

Listen to the full track below and don’t miss Flava D’s headline show at London venue The Nest on Friday (March 3). UKG, the debut album from t q d, is released on March 17.
