Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Robert Glasper, one of the best musician and composer I ever seen in the last 10 years.
Can you share one music production tip?
For Hip Hop and R'n'B production it's interesting dubbing the electric bass with a bass sine synth wave to make bigger and bassier sounds.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Funk, rock, fusion
What's your strongest skill?
Groove, Arrangement and Fantasy
What do you bring to a song?
I try to bring not only groove and movement, but also a bass line with a soul.I try to insert myself in the mood of the song.
What's your typical work process?
I listen the song first and try to feel the groove and the type of bass playing the track needs. Then I start recording the bass, if there's any istructions or music sheets I'll follow them; sometimes it's asked to me to be free and create the complete bass line.
