Interview with Chris Davies
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I don't want to pigeon-hole myself into any given genre. I love each and every type of music and would jump at the chance to take part in any musical project, no matter the style or genre.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Yes, don't bother wasting hundreds of pounds on Plug-ins. Some are worth buying, and some simply aren't. Better to make your own sounds from scratch!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I used to just produce and master solely house music, but now I work on anything and everything.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is mastering.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a wide, warm sound by using my combination of digital and analogue techniques and equipment.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly do mixing and mastering. I am also available for production and songwriting.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Industry standard monitors, mixer, keyboard, drum pad and software. Sennheiser headphones complete the setup.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that if you aren't 100% satisfied with the final product then I will turn around a satisfactory copy within 24 hours, and at 20% off the original price.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I advise you to get to know who you're paying to do this job and do your research well into what you actually want. If you want to talk to me in person about what I can do for you then go ahead and shoot me an email and we can set up a video chat.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrew Weatherall, Phil Spector, King Tubby, and many others.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I sit down at my desk and listen to the original track until I can pick out individual features and familiar motifs. I then pick the track apart and see where I can apply my knowledge and technical skills to make it sound more refined.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Odesza. I've seen them live and they really are phenomenal musicians. Also Hermes House Band because frankly, who wouldn't.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: The Silmarillion, a lighter, a fishing rod, a tent, and a whistle.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started producing around 10 years ago just before I turned 13.
