Interview with Joe Mott
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Elsie. Because I love her voice and I love the way she writes to my tracks and inspires me to develp them.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you master for me after you've mixed? No, but I can slap a limiter on it and make it loud if that's what you REALLY want. Or I can recommend a fantastic Mastering Engineer.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be realistic with your project. If it's not already up to a certain standard, paying money and expecting miracles is the road to frustration and disappointment!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: API 2500, 1176, my macbook running Logic, a decent condesner mic and my monitors.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Producing for 18 years, mixing for three.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Jessie Ware. Her voice would sit perfectly over one of my tracks and I'd NEVER get bored of comping her vocals!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Soul, pop, hip hop, r&b and bass–heavy music with a groove. NOT trance, house, or anything big room/ 4 on the floor.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Attention to detail and making sure frequencies aren't cluttering up a mix.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in Logic and have both a small home setup and a more extensive room at www.laboutique.london
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Flume, J Dilla, Rza, James Blake...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mix tracks for artists who want that little bit extra from their production. I also produce if it's a project I'm in to.
