Interview with Erick T
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Mastering for C-Kan was one of the greatest highlights for me. What a blessing to have those golden stems in my DAW. Also Mr. Pig was pretty fun because I did the A&R, final details, mastering, marketing and distribution.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working on my personal project, Erick T. also role as DOP for XDM Records | XDM Group in Mexico.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Fancy Folks are one of the greatest in the game.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Why "x" still doesn't sound good?" The answer is the golden rule of mastering. Trash in, trash out. The only remedy is to do a production fix.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: everyone can do it
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: let me understand your vision and let's get to it
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: the best in the game
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. I don't think going out of the box in 2021 it's an option. At the end of the chain is a DAC so let's make the sound enough digital to sound the same every single time and preserve the vibe.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: The best quality
Q: What do you like most about your job?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Let's match visions.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Headphones, an outstanding DAC and my laptop. That's what I need only to make the magic.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 5 years in a row
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Be sure what do you want to do at first and have a good sample collection. That's key.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic Dance Music but I love to experiment with other genres and push my limits every single time.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Enhance the groove and maximize the sound with the best quality as possible. EDM music it's all about the kick and the bass. Most of the time those 2 are the elements I review in detail the most. It's the foundation.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Ask for the client 6 stems. Kick, Bass, Drums, Synths, FX, Vocals. In order to enhance the quality of the mixdown just in the things the song needs. Then the client brings references and I have a complete vision and setup to start my job.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I believe going out of the box affects the signal a lot, we tried in the past with the greatest gear but I don't like the sound. Might be good for other kind of music but it's totally opposite to what the modern EDM needs so I do ZERO conversions to preserve quality of audio. All in the box.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: More than musicians, the people who makes possible everything we do. Listening to the final result in a club and everybody dancing it's my main inspiration
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Worldwide EDM Artists. Also I love when clients from different genres hit me up too! They love that EDM smashed sound on their music.
