At a Drake concert, if one is fortunate enough to attend one, most of us are inevitably taking it all in from afar, while a select few are an inextricable part of the action. As Drake's musical director, Dalton Tennant, better known as D10, sits stage-side every night. Responsible for all things live music during a Drake concert, D10 ensures playback goes smoothly, incorporating live keyboards and samples to Drake's electric delivery as he sees fit.

Highsnobiety caught up with D10 on the "Assassination Vacation' tour in London, where Drake successfully turned the O2 arena into the O3. D10 ran us through what he refers to as his "spaceship" - his live rig featuring no less than four laptops and an impressive array of Native Instruments keyboards and controllers.

In our exclusive behind the scenes video above, D10 discusses how he first linked up with Drake, what it's like playing every night on the 'Scorpion' tour, how he built the sounds for the live show with Native Instruments Reaktor and Komplete 12, and the camaraderie of the whole touring crew, which we found out consists of no less than 90 people.
