Interview with Miles DeFranco (5K)
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: So far I think my favorite Project I've released is an EP called "Contentions". I got a lot of great feed back and started to see my audience begin to grow. It was nice to see how much I had improved from my last release just a year prior.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Mostly solo stuff but a few small collaborations in the works as well. I have a lot of time on my hands.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both but for different reasons. Analog and Digital Audio are both very useful depending on the situation. There are certain things you can only do with Analog and other you can only do with Digital. With that being said... digital does make things a lot easier sometimes.

A: I love making music. I always have, and I'm going to be doing it for a long time.

A: "You got any beats for me?" (Yes) " Can you lay down vocals for this track I've been working on?" (Yes)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I don't only make beats for myself. Although I can sing and write lyrics my ambition was always to be a Music Producer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Apart from a due date, I will ask for a "General Vibe" or some reference songs or artists for material to draw inspiration from. I usually ask if there is a preferred key that they want the song to be written in as well.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice is to hire me! I'm very experienced for my age, and I have a background in music theory. Not only that but I'm not well known yet so my prices are cheap for good quality work.

A: Beach boy goes to music school.

A: SZA, Frank Ocean, Smino, and PlayBoy Cardi... because I have a finished beat that would be perfect.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get right into things. Typically I will put in a good amount of work and then check with the client to see if the project is headed in a direction they are happy with. I like to wait for a response just so I don't waste both of our time finishing something that you end up unhappy with. I like to try new things but i'm also very good at following directions, the trick is finding a happy medium.

A: I use a Microsoft Surface Studio Pro Desktop, Arturia KeyLab49 Essential Keyboard, Scarlett 2i2 Interface, Alesis Studio Monitors, An AKG P120 Microphone, A Bravo Audi Vacuum Tube Headphone Pre-Amp, and BeyerDynamic DT770 M Headphones.
