Interview with Nia

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

  2. A: Podcast Editing and Programmed Drums, although that's more recently. in the past my work was much more Mix and Master heavy.

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

  4. A: Prince is a big influence, as well as Funk and Disco musicians from the 60's/70's.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: Aside from the technical, I have a reliable musicality that can hear the gaps in a track, and that can mold a song to a certain aesthetic, image, idea, vibe or energy, with precision.

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

  8. A: Predominantly Black Genres, although I can work in any genre with my same musical ear.

  9. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  10. A: Robyn. She's a vibe, and I think we'd work in harmony together really well. Also Joji - we have a similar workflow and I think his abstract beats and my precise ear would make a banger.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: Sharp, defined and precise, right to the heart of the listener.

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Digital all the way - it's all soundwaves in the end, and everything can be simulated. Nothing beats a live drum or guitar IRL, but on Digital Streaming, with your Bluetooth digital headphones and digital MP3's? Digital is the move.

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

  16. A: The 5 pieces I have - because I'm often on a Desert Island! The Macbook is the cheat because it holds so many extra little tricks and treats.

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

  18. A: Be as creative and crazy as you like - send me mood boards, other tracks that inspire you, playlists, heck, a Tumblr blog! If it's communicating the vibe, I'll love it, and we'll make magic. Especially if you're asking for Muzak, that can help a lot!

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: It's a professional portable setup which allows me to have fast turnarounds and be able to work whenever I'm inspired while I travel the world. It's got all the essentials - New Apple MacBook, Rode Mic with Kaotica Eyeball Audio Booth, low latency Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface, and professional plugins such as Native Instruments and XLN.

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

  22. A: If there is such a thing, musically it will start with a sonic inspiration or a feeling that I'm trying to evoke in others. Then building that soundscape. Finally, the topline, moving and changing the music to flow with that. Podcast Editing is much easier, as I have custom presets that I customize to each project. Mix it all and Master it and it's ready to send out.
