Watch Chief Keef Perform “Faneto” With a Full Orchestra

By Donna-Claire Chesman on

Audiomack is proud to present the Drill Symphony with Chief Keef performing “Faneto.”

After presenting the Trap Symphony with A Boogie and Migos, Audiomack is proud to present the Drill Symphony with Chief Keef. Always moving music forward, the Drill Symphony was filmed at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California. Since the 1960s, the studio has been home to recordings from legends like Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Dr. Dre, D’Angelo, and countless others.

With an enchanting ensemble — Summer Swee-Singh on piano, Camille Miller and Yasmeen Al-Mazeedi on violin, Tim Richardson on viola, Eru Matsumoto on cello, and Jon Brick on drums — recording by Jaime Sickora, mixing by John Cleary, and the whole process shot out by Erikson Corniel, Chief Keef’s “Faneto” is given new life.

The original “Faneto” is built on menacing strings and a thumping energy; another perfect Drill Symphony candidate. The depth of strings are not lost in the Drill Symphony, but the haunting nature of “Faneto” is amplified by the patter of pizzicato from the violins and violas. With an eruption of live drums, this rendition of “Faneto” is a promise that Chief Keef means business. The gravity of Keef’s gun talk is tripled when delivered over a bed of harrowing cello notes. If you thought drill was grimy before, Drill Symphony will have you redefining shock and horror.
