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

  6. A: Of course. Always start your song with a proper structure. Know in advance what's the purpose of your song and structure the arrangement to suit the purpose of the song. If it's a club song then focus on having proper build-ups, breaks and drops to suit that environment.

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

  8. A: I would really love to sit down in the studio with Michael Cretu. He's a genius in my opinion.

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

  18. A: I receive a request. I assess what needs to be done. I agree on the price and timeline and I get on to it. Once I have a draft ready I send it over to my client for review.

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

  20. A: I can help you with the arrangement of the whole track or of your drumming. I can replace your samples with better ones, I can replace instrumentation with a more full body sound if necessary (synths & soft synths). I can re-write your melodies. I can improve your drums (make them sound good on their own). I can improve your mixing.

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