Eestbound did a great job mastering a 5 song EP. Records came back clean and in a timely manner. Going to come back to him for all mastering work without a doubt. His service, quality of work and professionalism is second to none.
He was nice, professional, gave me an advice on how to send the tracks and most importantly he did a great job!
Interview with Eestbound
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Knowing how & WHEN to use one or the other is key.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being able to sculpt sonics & manipulate sounds. There's something about tweaking knobs and hearing results that's just unbeatable.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to know as much as possible without sounding like an FBI agent. The more I know about the record and about the vision for it, the more efficient the process will be.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication solves everything.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Apollo x8, Neve Shelford Channel, API5500, Neve Portico II MBP & TC Electronic 1210
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Warm, punchy, wide, expensive, unique.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with PartyNextDoor, his music has lots of character & vibe.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: You need to have fun with it! Most importantly though, the song has to move you or make you feel a certain way.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually Hip-hop & RnB. However, I have worked on all kinds of genres and I love all kinds of music!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'd say my ear & decision making during mixing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to make things sound clean & expensive but with some grid too! I want to make sure the song is addicting & sounds good on ANY system.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the song and get familiar with the feeling/energy. Communication with the client is very important to make sure I start off on the right page in terms of approach to the mix. When I start mixing I work on the most exciting part first and make sure it has weight, then I build around that. Once everything sounds solid I like to add ear candy which makes the song stand out sonically & gives it replay value!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run a hybrid setup (analog & digital). Best of both worlds! I use the Universal Audio Apollo X8 as the heart of my studio & I have all my outboard gear routed through there. I use Genelec's as my monitors to ensure I can hear everything that's going on in the mix.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspiration is Jaycen Joshua. I love his techniques & ways he approaches his work.
