Dark Producer/ Mix Engineer

Jesse on SoundBetter

Passionate producer and mix engineer specializing in dark tracks. If you need help mixing or creating ominous sonic landscapes then I'm here to help you.

After a few years of dabbling in basic aspects of music production, I began distributing music on different platforms to express myself as an artist. Through the use of Soundcloud, over the past 3 years I've worked with many gifted producers on collaborative projects and remixes. I enjoy being creative and working within set themes.

Interview with Jesse

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: There are many but one that stands out for me is a track I did with the artist Mood Exhibit called "My Evolution". He created a disturbing instrumental and I was asked to add a vocal / lyrical element to the track based upon a set theme. In the end, we created a strange and unique piece that we were both very proud of.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I just finished a remix for my friend Elektric Surgery, who is a dark electronic producer from Scotland. At the moment, I'm trying to finish some of my own projects.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I'm new to this website but I'm sure I'll start meeting people soon.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Sinister and often danceable.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: It depends on the project. For most dark wave tracks I start with rhythm and then sculpt the song from there.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I run a mostly "in the box" system. I do use external instruments such as synths, samplers, groove boxes, and guitars when desired.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: I am inspired most by innovators of the past. Bands such as Coil, Throbbing Gristle, and Skinny Puppy crafted an amazing dark vibe that had a heavy influence on my style. More recently, I've loved the sound of Zanias, Void Vision and Olms.

  15. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  16. A: As an artist, I'm often asked to add a sinister vocal/ lyrics to an existing instrumental production. Second most request would be remixing another producer's track in my own style.

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. A: I like analog too but I'm mostly digital. It's cheaper and plug ins take up less space yet still sound really good.

  19. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  20. A: I will do my best to make the production or mix as great as possible.

  21. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  22. A: Starting with nothing and ending up with something cool.

  23. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  24. A: Is this something you can work with? Let's try it and see what happens.

  25. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  26. A: That I know everything about everything haha.

  27. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  28. A: Find someone you trust and who is a good fit for what you specifically need.

  29. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  30. A: Laptop, interface, headphones, a good synth, and a mic...but where would I plug it in?

  31. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  32. A: I spent 2 years learning all I could about production before I started publishing songs and working with other producers. After learning the basics of production, I spent another 2 years focusing on practicing the craft and collaborating. As of now, I've got four years of experience. At this point I am confident in what I bring to the table production wise.

  33. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  34. A: Either dark dance tracks or horror themed ambient music.
