Interview with Jeffrey iLL
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! There is never a black and white answer to anything in life.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I really like hearing the client get a sense of joy and excitement when they hear what I’ve come up with.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you planning to do with the track? Have you practiced this aloud (not just in your head)? What kind of impact are you trying to make with your music?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Understand that I still do my absolute best to mesh the sound that I’ve been able to build over the course of my years making music with theirs.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My WORLDE Tuna Mini, SteelSeries headphones, my PC, my AT2020 mic and of course my preamp.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I’ve been doing this for 11 years now. I started out as just a rapper in 2010 and then ventured into engineering around 2013. I took sometime to really understand lyricism and rap and by 2016, I started learning production.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I’m a k-pop artist in a Dominican-American body who really likes gritty rap, Marshmello and Au5.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Benny Blanco — I just really feel like we would make such an amazing record. With both of our wild personalities and diverse music taste, I believe we would make history.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Do not overthink your melody or mix!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My diversity.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring uniqueness and my own style to most tracks I work on. I like to imagine myself as a sponge so my ability to mold my own vision into what the artist is looking for really stands out in my work.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually like to listen to what the artist is influenced by and what vision they're looking for. After that, I start to work on some chords or find a sample that fits the mood of what they’re looking for. When I lay down the chords, I typically like to add some snares/claps to give the track some rhythm to follow. Depending on the song, I’ll add some kick drums to give the artist a sense of vibrations to start the songwriting flow. I tend to ask the artist a lot of questions so that we’re making sure to get the sound they’re really looking for.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: - 16GB Intel i5-9600K + RTX 2070S + ASUS E-Gaming Motherboard with a 500GB NVMe SSD and 4TB HDD. - Focusrite Scarlett - Presonus Studio Channel Strip w/ Preamp, Compressor and EQ. - Audio Technica AT2020 - Presonus E3.5 Studio Monitors - ASUS 280hz monitor along with an LG 4K monitor to display all of my work.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Louis Bell, Ali, 40, Drake, Marshmello & T-Pain
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I produce and engineer.
