The ever joyous Benny Blanco joins Foy for a rollicking 30 minutes of laughter and reflection. They talk weeding out the shitty people in your life in the midst of worldwide protests. Blanco’s dinner choices range far and wide: french fries and pizza and bagels and sushi. His music choices are more of the same schmorgesborg, cueing up a mixtape of DJ and dance and dads’ faves and Gregorian chants.
Blanco is a jack of all trades, a producer for artists like Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Major Lazer, Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Kesha, Taio Cruz, Wiz Khalifa, Gym Class Heroes, Lil Dicky, and Tory Lanez. When he’s working on his own, Blanco is no slouch—his 2018 record Friends Keep Secrets’ song “Eastside (with Halsey and Khalid)” has been certified 4x Platinum in the US, 9x Platinum in Australia, and 2x Platinum by BPI.
Follow Foy and Benny along with assertions that ‘every house has a toy keyboard,’ and that the choices you make as a kid about art can have a dramatic impact on your life.
