Interview with David Pietras

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

  2. A: A lot of production and songwriting projects for other artists. But also a lot of mixing and mastering for other producers/ artists.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both are important. You need to understand analog to be able to get the best out of digital. I always use analog synths, real instruments or creative sounds that I've sampled by myself, and combining it with new techniques and sounds.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Listening. Listening to the music, and feeling what it needs, and listening to my clients and their ideas and vision!

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

  8. A: Snus, vibing to great music and then enjoying the rest of the day with trying out new ideas.

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

  10. A: Excitement and warmth

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

  12. A: I work mostly with Pop music. But I've also produced and released music for K-Pop, EDM, Indie Folk/Pop.

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

  14. A: Don't be afraid to ask, I'm always flexible so we can find a way to work in conditions that work for both of us!

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

  16. A: I'm mostly working with production work for other artists and songwriters. Full production, mixing and mastering. I'm also helping out with songwriting (melody and arrangement).

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

  18. A: I'm always doing my best and I always deliver more than expected. Communication is important for me!

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

  20. A: Every day is different and I get to know new talents and new experiences all the time. And I get to do what I love the most!

  21. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  22. A: My favorite production tip is less is more. Try to have as few elements as possible but working with the individuals sounds instead. You can get more creative productions that way because you limit yourself and you need to come up with creative ways of making the few sounds cool and interesting.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: Universal Audio Apollo, Novation Peak, Genelec, Fender Telecaster

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

  26. A: I started out with classical piano at the age of 6, and started producing music when I was around 12 years old. I continued with producing house music for 8 years. Artists and labels that I've worked with in the house music scene are mainly Steve Angello/ Axwell (Swedish House Mafia) and Nicky Romero. After that I've been studying music production, mixing, mastering and songwriting for 2 years in Sweden. And right now I'm producing, writing and mixing for upcoming Swedish artists and international artists (working with Sony Music, Universal Music and more). My goal is to make as much great music as I can!
