Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I produce a lot of music. Honestly. problem is that most of the music that produce is owned by a Private Company. I can go up and pick stuff like pop music or deep house or go down and grab some Dirty analog beat. You name it! I also mix some of the stuff that I produce. This only happens tho when I have a clear vision of what I want the song to sound like.
