Interview with HennyB
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm always trying to improve my craft, at the moment I'm learning all the instruments I can get my hands on. Every time recording I try something new but still stick to my roots, experimenting can only bring new results.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I believe If you know Analog you'll definitely have a better understanding of digital concepts. they are both unique and I love them both, but you get better quality sound from Analog.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do everything in my power to make your project sound pristine. As long as you're willing to work and communicate with me.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it doesn't feel like a job, its something that I can do with joy until I die.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them about their upcoming projects, what they would want to work on with me, and/or who they work with to see if I can get more prospective clients.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1) A Guitar 2) My Laptop with FL Studio 3) Headphones 4) At least a midi keyboard 5) An audio interface
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My beats are dirt nasty. I've developed a style that I cannot describe with words, I like for my work speak for itself.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Tame Impala, because he does everything I want to do and I would love to see his process in the studio.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It's all good and well to get advice from someone, but don't copy everything they do. Try to figure out how the dynamics in the song change and know how to spot the difference when turning a knob. Trust your ear gut!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I've been producing Rap/hip-hop tracks for the most part, but I'm open to anything. I have a wide variety of music that I can refer to. I've made some pop, rock, folk, and indie music in the past.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm good at both making beats and recording, but when it comes to my sense of hearing I can distinguish what needs to be done with anything in the song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring excitement and quality for the listener to enjoy. That's my main goal producing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I'm in my studio every day, usually making beats or editing them. Whenever I have clients who needs mastering or mixing done it takes me about two days minimum to mix and master. I need to make sure the track sounds good the next day with a fresh set of ears after hearing fatigue. I take my time to perfect all elements to the track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My Studio is an in-home Studio with high-quality studio monitors (Yamaha HS7's) and other reference monitors (B&W DM110's) within an acoustic treated room. For recording an AKG C414 XLS microphone for vocals and some more directional microphones for instruments. I have a few keyboards and drum pads for beats, and for the most part, I work on FL Studio, but I can also use ProTools and Abelton.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm really into the 70s progression rock era. Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, etc... I don't really have a favorite musician or genre but I get inspired by any music that's intriguing to me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I have a recording studio, so for the most part when I work with clients we spent most of the time recording. Sometimes though, the artist/client needs a beat, which means making a beat before recording. I usually do a quick mix of the track just to get some of the main ideas laid out so that I can further mix the track to get it ready to release it.
