Interview with Marconi Music Marbella
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The first platinum record I did was very special to me. I’d recorded, vocal produced and co. mixed and mastered Node’s song “Pakker Bar’”
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Every week there are new singles, EP’s or albums coming through the studio.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Today you have some amazing plugins and daws that can really help your workflow, but also bring some amazing touches to your song. When that is said, good analog gear is always a winner. I love working with SSL, Danfield, TubeTech and so on.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with so many amazing talents, helping them create their work.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That you just as well do it yourself or pay an online algorithm to do it.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Feel the energy between you and the provider. Music is all about the feeling, and if your energy’s don’t match, your ideas probably won’t either. And always remember to provide as much information as possible. This will give the provider the best chance to create what you are looking for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Probably a pair of focal twins.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Living of working as a sound engineer since the age of 16, 2009.
Q: How would you describe your style?

Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There is way to many to just name one, but all of the legends. The greatest producers from Quincy Jones to Dr. Dre, and the greatest artists from Bob Marley to Justin Timberlake.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If it sound good, your doing it right. It’s all about the feeling and vibe.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Urban, pop, hip hop, rap, RnB, afro, reggae
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening to an unfinished song and knowing what it needs to be just what it deserves to be.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: An always ‘up to date’ sound, that never differs from the high quality we are known for.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Talking to the artist about his/hers ideas and thoughts about their work. Asking for 2-3 reference songs. Making first draft/version and send it to the artist. From there on it’s all about tweeking the details and look at any comments that might be.
