Interview with matifly
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't read when you sing or rap. Learn it, and it will flow much better. That works for producers too. Do not lean so much on automatization or composing and let it flow. Achieving a feeling is the most important part.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Mixing it's about clarity for the important, and texture for the support. Your voice needs to be heard ultra-clear and in front, while the sides need something to reach the attention. All this applies to any genre. And all this needs good recordings first.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Mixing takes cleaning your tracks, normalizing them (volume balance), EQ and compression needed, Mix bus treatment, effects and automatization on everything. For mastering, is about listening and giving it the final sound and vibe. And measuring levels needed for any platform.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a High end PC that can handle all your tracks with ease. I use a measurement and calibration software to mix in a fully treated room for flat frequency response. That means, no surprises. I've always used the industry standard Protools, and I live away from the noise, so nothing bothers my sessions.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing is receiving your tracks and do anything needed to make them fit together. Between balace, eq and compression, I'll return you the sound YOU NEED. Mastering is taking that mix and making the final touches to get your song out there.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked a lot on Live events, and that gives you an accelerated experience of how artists work and what they want. And how to make it happen. And I released my first album last year, and I still love it every time I listened. Just following my own rules.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm into beat making while making my own music. And from that making a lot of sample packs. Love how producers make new things from my ideas. And mixing for everyone. It's my favorite part of the day. Polishing ideas.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not for now.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Digital practicality makes the job a lot faster. And analog randomness makes it unique.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You're not paying for a service, you're paying for me to help you. And I'll do it to my best cause I love to see ideas grow. Especially other people's ideas. I'll always be super honest, giving you the best advice I can and always understanding how important your project is to you. I've got your back.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The infinite creeative process and it's growth on ourselves. We get better every time we repeat this. We learn every time we repeat this. We create relationships every time we repeat this. I would repeat this process forever, for now.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long does it takes? I plan my work in schedules, and when your in it you'll have your work done as fast as I can, always focusing on quality. But it depends on the state of the composition or tracks. If it needs a lot of cleaning, it takes more time. But if it's well recorded and the composition is well finished, it will take no time to make it sound better. What style of music do you play? Every style, but always focusing on the vibe instead of soloing.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mixing doesn't help the melody or the chord structure. You need to have your main idea clear to be able to expand it. And composing a part doesn't necessarily need to sound good. It needs to be the right intervention with the right sound. Understand in which part of the process your song is.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I need the best reference they can give me, and also some music they like that isn't about the song necessarily. I ask them to link the sound they want to a space. Preferably where they imagine them playing the song. Stadium, small bar, acoustic in a house. And that gives me the perfect notion for the loudness and sound they want. At last, If they need it for something special. I'm always open to whatever the client wants.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Whoever you choose, always learn from them, but choose the ones who improve your idea instead of making theirs. The most important part, is your original idea and keeping it till the end of the process, summing instead of masking.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A guitar with infinite string packs. A Tascam mobile recorder to leave a legacy. A beta56 cause studio mics would die in a week. cables, connectors and fire to weld. AND A FREAKIN DRUMSET of sea wood for it to be eternal.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Been involved in music for 14 years now. Started playing guitar in school, then I studied Sound engineering and worked on Live events. Later I started to make commercial music, and then I realized I could do that for myself and make my own songs. So I started making my music, mixing and mastering it, mixing for others, and making music with others. I just love how infinite it is, so I work with anyone who wants to grow and work a lot to make the best music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love pushing boundaries, but still being able to be heard. Finding the middle through any means necessary. So my style is exaggerated. Whichever vibe you want, I'll expand it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anderson Paak, Noname. They have their own vibe. And I can't wait to listen to or be involved with that kind of people and their music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-Hop, Funk, R&B, Jazz, Pop, Trap. I love electronic music too and would love to start working with something like that.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening the client and to what I'm doing. Always comparing if I'm really adding or just cluttering. And always having in mind what you want for your music, and not placing my ego first. Also, I love building relationships with clients and help them through their journey, achieving team-like workflow and learning the vision that the others has.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jazz musicians have it really clear. It's all about the feeling and the attention of the listener. Any mix engineer that makes you feel a roller coaster of emotions within the song. John Coltrane, Wynton Marsalis, Miles Davis, Kendrick Lamar, A Tribe called Quest, Daft Punk. Jaycen Joshua, Dave Pensado, Rick Rubin, Dr, Dre.
