Interview with DJBuzz Promotion
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Our clients provides us the stems of the radio edit, and we remix it, or we create a redrummed extended that we send to the DJs and radios thru our platform.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work on Ableton Live, with a massive soundbank and the best plugins available. It is an All in the Box setup, which is largely enough for Dance remixes.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually make a "compatibility test" to check that the song is compatible with a beat or a gimmick to make it more danceable. When validated, I finish it, send to validate again, make some revisions if needed, then promote it thru our platform.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Danceability, and compatibility with European Dancefloors.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The promotion is our strong skill. From the studio to the DJs & Radios in less than a week!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainstream, usually.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't put too much instruments and music, leave room for the vocals. When you don't know what to put, better put nothing. Silence is music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Lady Gaga, because Lady Gaga.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'm a Cameleon.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My first paid gig as a drummer was 40 years ago. I'm doing Dance music and promotion for 20 years.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: a computer, a microphone, a guitar, a keyboard, and headphones.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Only come to me if your song is strong. I cannot turn lead into gold.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your strategy as an artist or producer? What do you want to become? Are you prepared to succeed?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is when people think we can turn lead into gold. We cannot convince DJs and radios to play a bad song.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you convince DJs and Radios even if my song is so-so? Isn't there so many crap songs on the radio?" My answer: "Which ones?" and usually they say "I don't have a name in mind, but there's a lot of crap on the radio" Never underestimate radio programmers...
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I don't have to wake up in the morning asking myself "Who I'm going to rob today?"
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: The Truth, even if it hurts.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I don't care as long as the sound is good.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I just discovered SoundBetter today.
