Interview with Omega Level Studios

What are you working on at the moment?
My rap album that is completely self recorded, mixed, mastered, and produced by Omega Level Studios.
Analog or digital and why?
Both. Each have their own pros and cons so why not use both so they can balance each other out? But if I had to pick I would choose analog because of the warmth.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
That I will give you the best service I can provide and if for some reason my style doesn't suit you I will attempt to point you to someone who can for a similar charge.
What do you like most about your job?
That I am making something that didn't exist before. I think the reason a lot of 'normal' jobs aren't appealing is because you sit somewhere for eight to twelve hours and nothing is materialized.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
"Do you really charge that much?!" When in reality I charge very little compared to other service providers with similar quality. They usually come back once they do some research.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That I do everything for free. I'm not out to get rich but I do have a hungry stomach like everyone else.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask what type of music they enjoy, make, and basic information about themselves like their favorite color. I do this to try to find the most delicate pieces of their personality so I can create something that resonates with them.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I made an instrumental production for my girlfriend that I believe is one of the best pieces I ever composed. I composed, mixed, and mastered the track.
How would you describe your style?
Alternative Hip Hop
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
The Weeknd because I enjoy how darkly melodic his music is and he is not afraid to take risks.
Can you share one music production tip?
BALANCE. I see commonly engineers/artists prefer certain instruments way in the front. There is nothing wrong with having foreground but one sound shouldn't make another sound meek and flimsy in a mix.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Mainly abstract hip hop and experimental music.
What do you bring to a song?
I usually bring the main mood to a song. I am best at finding great repeatable harmonies that stick with my listeners. I am also great at coming up with groovy abstract drum patterns.
What's your typical work process?
I typically immerse myself in other forms of art until something clicks. Just a small idea that could be a riff, drum pattern, or other sound. I then first bring that into reality and the song usually forms around that idea.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I am really inspired by Phaeleh and Pentatonix because they bring out so much atmosphere with so little.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I commonly do recording and mixing/mastering services for my clients with the occasional electric guitar session.
