Interview with Zaini
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the work I do is selling licenses to beats I have already created which are all on my SoundCloud and Youtube pages. However, I do make custom beats for artists. I always have some unreleased beats saved up as well ready to send via email.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: XXXTENTACION has been my biggest inspiration to create music back when I heard of him in 2016. I wanted to make music as a kid but I was afraid of putting my thoughts into music because they were very dark and I thought I would be judged. When I heard x, that changed my perspective. Other musicians that inspire me include Nirvana, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Sarcastic Sounds, Internet Money (specifically Nick Mira),
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I typically create everything except for the vocals on a song. I have recently been doing all the vocal engineering/mixing/mastering as well, however I am not professional.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Music production, specifically lofi and hip hop/trap beats
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Lofi hip hop, boom bap, downtempo, vaporwave, indie, trap, hip hop
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to think of each instrumental as a song rather than just a beat. Forget type beats and create art. Show your personality and creativity throughout the track and really showcase who you are and how you feel at the time. Be authentic. Make your music have meaning even without vocals.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I can't really pinpoint a style on my music. I like to bounce from different genres. A few words to describe my music could be chill, sad, grunge, upbeat sometimes
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been seriously doing music production from May of 2017. Spending every day making music since.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I'd need electricity first, so instead I would bring 5 mates and populate the island to create a new civilization that only makes and consumes music. Free gear for everyone, and no one will have to worry about tuning your 808's!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure the producer you are working with shows a genuine love for what they are doing rather than trying to make money. It is much more about the art than it is the money.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask what format the artist wants the audio files. I offer Mp3 leases, WAV lease, Wav trackouts (stems) lease and Unlimited Licenses.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Many people think I also do the vocals on the tracks I post. I am a music producer instead.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Would you willing to do a royalty split instead? Yes, but not always. I do have Distrokid and I am willing to do royalty splits instead of paying upfront for an instrumental. However, if it is a custom beat or I am doing any mixing or mastering for you, that would be a separate cost. Just contact me about any further questions about this.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to do what I love. Create music! :)
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To get you the best possible track/song/beat for you
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Always working on a few beats and a few full songs every day
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Zaini x Nuxe - Reason (ft. Vict Molina). I was 1 of 2 producers for this track. It turned out to be an amazing track and people have been responding very positively to it.
