Interview with Insko
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm mainly asked to produce a track/beat for a singer/rapper. I've worked with singer and rappers in the past, however i feel i am better at producing EDM rather than trap/hip-hop.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Martin Garrix is a huge inspiration to me, however i listen to a lot of other producers such as Illenium, Jauz, Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, Droeloe and many more.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I produce music in my bedroom at home. However, my room is acoustically treated and i use flat speakers and headphones meaning I have the perfect sound.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When producing i always try to find a reference track, a track that in the same style that I'm trying to achieve. Then I'll start the production process, create a drum pattern and a catchy melody. I normally mix my track during the process of production, so I'll add the main elements then begin to tweak volumes and add EQ's and compression. After I've finish the production process i then begin to master the track, which takes a few days.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to make the song I'm working on have some sort of emotion and flow. I try to make all the computer generated instruments sound as real as i can by tweaking velocities and timings.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: At the moment i feel i'm really good at mixing. Mixing for me is never a struggle, i just naturally know what to do just by using my ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I normally work on Electronic Dance Music, (For my personal projects i normally produce a genre called Future Bass). However i have created trap/hip-hop beats in the past, but i wouldn't say I'm overly confident in my abilities when creating those types of music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: One of the most important things when producing is layering. If it's your lead, bass, chords or even vocals, everything needs layers. If you just stuck to one sound for each of your elements the track would sound extremely thin no matter how many effects you use. So when you've made your lead, or your bass or whatever. Make sure to create different synths to layer it with.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: For a producer, i would love to work with Martin Garrix. Not only because he's a huge inspiration to me, but because i feel like we could both learn a lot if we collaborated together. He's a musical genius. As for a vocalist, I would love to work with Halsey, she has a beautiful voice. I also really like Khalid's vocals too.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as borderline pop music. I try to make my own productions catchy, but also enjoyable for any audience.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: At the moment i study music tech at college, however as a career i would like to be a full time DJ and producer.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you look at what type of music they produce. For example if a rapper came to me asking for a beat, I would most likely turn down the proposal as i know I'm not that great at producing that kind of music.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music is like a blank canvas, it's free to do whatever you want, there are no rules.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will produce a track in my specified style of music and make sure it is the highest quality.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have a lot of tracks in the works at the moment for my own personal releases.
