A: Mahalia, J.Cole, CleoSol, NipseyHussle(R.I.P.), SnohAlegra, KendrickLamar, SummerWalker, KianaLede, Kehlani, Khalid These artists are among SOME of those who represent the next wave of greatness. There's been many before them - but these are actually realistic possibilities I can connect with.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: For first timers, there can sometimes be a blurry line in their differentiation between - musician, producer(or beatmaker...depending on level of involvement in song process), writer, vocal producer, engineer, mixer......and mastering. While many of us can perform many of these different functions - its helpful if clients understand how much value their being given.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: People ask which of the functions you can handle. I'm comfortable with being a musician, producer, writer, vocal producer, mix engineer, and mastering eng. I'm also flexible with flowing in and out of those roles and working with others' contributions - I love to listen and learn - it's art, it's business......but, MOSTLY it's relationships!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I work until you have arrived at complete satisfaction with all details. I must have your artistic project express what YOU want!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: -iMac and MacBookPro -Logic, Pro-Tools(occasionally), Maschine -Many of the Top Instrument VST's and Mixing Plug-ins from Native Instruments, East West, Slate, Waves, Izotope, UAD, Soundtoys, Omnisphere/Serum/Nexus/Blue/Albino/Sylenth/Absynth/lots of Sample Libraries -Motif / M-50 / Fantom - outboard workstations -MiktekCV4 or PelusoVTB Avalon737 BurlB2 RME YamahaNS-10's/HS8's Focal Twin6Be -Treated space accommodating 4
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Rap and Ultra Modern R&B (or TrapSoul...people refer to it differently) and UrbanPop, produced and mixed with that warm Richness/Depth of sound without sacrificing Clarity. I know we're not in the 1970's, however, I admire the detailed Instrument Selection and Lush mixes(think Stevie Wonder, Earth,Wind, and Fire, etc...) I'm completely ITB (without any vintage gear - which I greatly appreciate), technology has allowed us to achieve something pretty close to the "Tape" and "Analog gear" sound. Applying this to Modern Urban and Pop records sounds AMAZING!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Even though I'm completely "In The Box ".......I'd say Both! Cheeseburger or fries?............if you can have it...get BOTH!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: 1) Full music production arranged in full song form (R&B|Soul, Pop) and/or beats for all rap sub-genres (Trap, Boom-Bap, Sample Based, etc.), usually in one of the common contemporary popular song arrangement structures. I work heavily in the Urban/Pop Genre. 2) Songwriting - Writing Lyrics and Composing music to fit...in either order. 3) Mixing those same songs and or mixing songs that were sent to me already completed and needing mixing!
