Interview with Dre Blaze
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It is a basic setup, two flat screen monitors, custom built pc (built for music and video production), M-Audio Av 40s, M-Audio Oxygen 49, Audio Technica Headphones.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Doesn't really matter. There is no hard n fast rule to music, once it gets the project to fruition.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do my best, give my honest opinion and be creative as possible.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much? It all depends
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be upfront as to how you want your project to sound, how it sounds along the progress of it and trust the creativeness of the individual. Each producer/composer is different and creative in their own unique way.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Most artists, jokingly say the tracks are like movie tracks, most of the artists that I worked with don't know each other per say to know they are all saying that it sounds that way. But to me, I would say different and is like a melting ot of sounds and instruments that blend and flow smoothly together.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would say Andre 3000 because I've been an avid listener of the Outkast group and sound from the first to the last album, and to me those guys should be in a genre of their own. Andre 3000 is just a creative genius lyrically and the way he brings across the story on a track and the sound is just unique.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have fun, Be creative and feel the project. If your building a club track, go out and experience a club. If your writing about emotions, listen to a friend that's hurt or watch a romantic movie something along the lines of the idea of the track.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Crossover tracks, like EDM fused with dancehall (faster version of reggae)/ POP fused with Dancehall / EDM fused with Hip Hop/ World fused with EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A Caribbean flavour/style. My friends joke and say my style of producing is categorized as "Dre", I have my own genre.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Most times, I will build a skeleton beat around the persons idea or chorus, the person would write/freestyle, record the demos and then i add more life and character to the music to match what the song is saying and feeling, once the artist is comfortable and his bill is paid in full I deliver the final files.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Producing an entire track, from developing the idea, writing the music, writing the lyrics and organizing album art.
