What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently working on and EP for the band Papercut Marathon and an EP for hip hop artist Nameless.
Analog or digital and why?
I generally prefer analog over digital for the superior sound quality. Digital can feel a little thin sometimes. However, I think hybrid setups are the best. You get analog quality with the superior flexibility of digital.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A lot of people involved in music production seem to think engineers have a larger role than they do in the way a final product sounds, in the sense of believing that an engineer can take someone who isn't that great and make them sound phenomenal. This isn't entirely true. A good engineer accents the music with whatever it may need to get it sounding right and showcases the music in the best figurative light it can be in.
Can you share one music production tip?
Too much compression = very bad.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I try not to limit myself by genres, but most of my clients have been in Hip Hop and RnB, with a bit of Folk here and there. My own projects tend to lean towards surf, indie, chillwave, and oldies/old school RnB (or you could just call it moody beach music).
What's your typical work process?
My work process varies from project to project. If I were to put it in general terms, it would be to first look at what I need to do and how to best do it, and then do it.
