Too Much to Digest was recorded on the last day of OneBeat 2019, when the group was staying in the mountains of western North Carolina. Ivy Alexander (Kenya) laid down chord patterns on guitar, and Liwandile (South Africa) pulled out a very personal verse that he had recently penned about his ambivalence of the role of formal education in South Africa. He reflected: “I had just completed my graphic design studies, but I felt like I hadn’t done enough despite the 3 years I’d spent. Was I even ready to enter the working world? The year was almost over so I was reflecting on it and introspecting. I tend to overthink easily, so those thoughts just led to many others, I was turning stones that weren’t even within my radius at that time.” Building off this beat and rapped verse, OneBeat lead producer Jeremy Thal added drums, a bassline, and samples of the voice of Shibani Sur (India).
