On the Rhythm Changes Podcast, Chin Injeti takes a break in-studio to join me on the occasion of his single “Golden (feat. Thieves Like Us)”.

We talked about:

  • Chin’s favourite singer in the world and some other favourite performers
  • His favourite tracks on Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder
  • What makes a great bassline (keep the time, respect the space of the arrangement)
  • The new Chin Injeti single “Golden” and where Chin was when writing it
  • What makes a great musical partner (for Chin, DJ Khalil)
  • Chin’s 2015 TedX Vancouver talk
  • Spending the early-2020 pandemic months with family
  • Creating constantly without much variance
  • Chin’s popularity among my producer friends and how they want to see his process
  • Turning off analytical thinking and focusing on the feelings: “write drunk, edit sober”, living in the moment
  • Working with Teon Gibbs and Iamtheliving
  • The origin of the artist name Thieves Like Us with Brian West, aka Sweet Westy
  • What people are paying for when they hire producers: it’s like hiring a stylist
  • How Chin has shifted away from thinking about genres and crossovers but thinks it’s still worthwhile for the media to categorize music
  • I try the Patrick O’Shaughnessy question
  • whether or not he thinks he’s an old soul
