Interview with Preme-O
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My mixtape and a new EP.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I would recommend Rashaan "Cus" Stephens because he is a very talented mix engineer who has worked on some big songs with major artists that I am a fan of and he also sometimes works at Ruff Ryders Powerhouse Studio in Yonkers, N.Y. where I am the new Studio Bookings Manager.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would bring some tools to hunt,cook and protect myself.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Music production is the most common type of work I do for clients.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a simple home based project multimedia studio. It is a multi-workstation set-up powered by two Macintosh computers and one Windows based computer. One of the Macs runs Pro Tools, Reason, Garage Band, Cubase and Ableton DAWs that I use for music production. It is connected to a PreSonus audio interface with multiple cardioid condenser microphones to record from, an Alexis Mixer and a pair of Rokit near field studio monitors. The other Macintosh computer is used for graphic design, video editing and web development running Photo Shop, Final Cut Pro and various programming applications. The Windows based computer is used for more business oriented applications like Microsoft Office, Quick Books and etc. There are also professional cameras, a green screen, lighting gear and a lot of other ancillary equipment is the studio.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My work process always begins with an idea, concept, emotion or subject. I proceed from there to lyric creation and music production. I do both processes concurrently. The next steps for me are song development then music arrangement. The last steps are mixing, mastering and copyrighting although sometimes I copyright my music before master it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring life, creativity and professionalism to a song.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Creativity is my strongest skill.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Hip-Hop music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always strive to produce the highest quality music possible from your perspective.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My rap style ranges from simple one or two sequential syllable rhymes to multiple and complex sequential syllable rhymes. My flow is fluid, agile and versatile. The music and beats I produce tell a melodic sonic story using instruments that put the artist and all listeners in an audible environment appropriate to the subject matter of the song.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've toggled between the streets and school my whole life gaining the knowledge, experience and skills to be successful in this industry. I started rapping when I was 8 years old and started making beats when I was 12 years old. I became a lifetime member of A.S.C.A.P. as a Songwriter and Publisher in 2013 and a certified Pro Tools Music Operator in 2014.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I advise customers to be professional and/or serious about our business endeavor(s) with each other.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The questions I ask to all my customers are "How may I help you, how serious are you about this job and do you agree to the terms and conditions we have discussed"?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do is that a lot of people think it is easy to produce good music.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The most commonly asked question customers ask me is "How much are your rates?" and my answer is "It varies based on the type of work the client wants and the amount of time spent on it, but it is all negotiable".
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like most about my job is the freedom and creativity it gives me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to my clients that "I will work to the best of my abilities for them".
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I prefer using digital technology because that is all I know how to use for music production purposes and I have a strong background in I.T.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I produced a song called "Want 2" with O.G. Slink and I am especially proud of it because of how unique the beat sounds. It sounds like a trap rap beat, EDM and rock and roll all at once. O.G. Slink and I co-wrote the song. At first he created the first part of the hook final hook and had one verse but no beat. He let me hear what he had and I heard the beat in my head as he said it. It took me a while to perfect the beat but I eventually got it exactly right. Then I traveled to Ga to finish the song and record his parts and came back to New York to mix and master the record. It's fire. Listen to a preview at https://supremessound.com/music#Want2Preview
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My primary sources of inspiration to create and make music are my life experiences although every piece of music that I like and sometimes even music that I do not like inspires and motivates me to create and make new music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I currently have copyrighted 3 songs with parts for females that I think are a perfect match for artist like City Girls, Cardi B, Iggy Azalea, Doja Cat and/or Nicki Minaj. The 3 reasons why I think that these artist are a perfect match for these songs I've produced are all these women have similar songs in one way or another to one of the three songs I have produced, the female parts are very flirtatious and one of the songs requires one female who can sing and rap. Other artist I'd also like to work with are the Lox, French Montana, Dipset, Mozzy, Kendrick Lamar and The Migos because I like their music and I think our music has a lot of similarities. I'd also like to work with Tink and Kehlani on some Hip-Hop/R&B songs.
