Interview with DaveJavu
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Production work. I make instrumentations for artists both independent and with a label. I do make compositions and sound design for sync licensing as well through my publishing company Nordic Music Society. Other than that I do mix/master for other producers, artists and songwritere to help their songs reach a higher potential.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get inspired by many. But to name a few I get inspired by the songwriting of music from the Motown era. Recent artists that inspire me are Sabrina Claudio, Disclosure, Mura Masa, Gallant etc. Production wise: Noah '40' Shebib, Jimmy Iovine, Bonobo, Mura Masa etc.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depending on the project, type of clients etc. Sometimes I make music in advance and pitch it to clients I like to work with. If clients reach out to help with their project: - I undergo a communication process where I figure out there goal, vision, style, expectations etc. to make sure we are on the same page. - depending on the level of finished their song is i start the process of building the song. - communicate with the client meanwhile to make sure we both are agreeing and happy with the process and product. Remix is different, where I make the instrumentation around the vocals or with beats/instrumentals I use the lead melody to create a new piece. Mix/master starts with communicating with the client about expectations, needs etc. and I give an mix/master version which they can choose to have altered to their like.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring unique approach, out of the box thinking, relevans and professionalism.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: A good melody. Knowing what sounds good and what doesn't. It is a tremendous asset in this industry because often people get blinded by the excitement of a track/song that they can't objectively find it's errors and what it lacks.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: R&B/Soul, EDM, Pop, Hip Hop, Lounge.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always start with having a great song (Chord progression & Topline) then the rest will be easy as pie.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I do work with some high end clients on current projects outside soundbetter. But I would like to work with people that needs help. I feel it's more giving to help somone achieve their goal.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Different, but recognizable. From a long process with many genres I do like to combine these to make something unique.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been producing for 8 years, DJ'ing for 3 years. Playing music instruments for 12 years.

A: Midi keyboard, lap top with all necessary plug-ins, monitors, audio interface, guitar
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's easy
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
