I've traveled the US as a hip hop artist and have worked out of several studios on the east coast as an audio engineer, and producer. From DJing since 11 years old to writing and producing many artists.
Specializing in Hip Hop and EDM as an engineer I focus on making the exciting moments really pop, and the vocals be as clear as possible. As a producer I only choose the projects I am passionate about. Once I start, I tend to implement as much of a timeless feel as I can to any project.

Interview with Studio RED Productions
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The song Number One I shared with this profile is a project I'm extremely proud of. Not only did I write it from scratch, I made the beat, and gave that project my absolute all to get it to sound exactly how I imagined it initially
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently producing and forming a hip hop group, producing my own projects mainly hip hop at the moment with some EDM elements, as well as producing and mixing for artists like you.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I'm a fan of both, but I have more experience with digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I can guarantee attention to detail, my full effort, and to address any issue you may have. The most rewarding thing for me at the end of the day is a happy client.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The surprise of creativity that erupts when I start a project. it's as if a different mindset takes over and just goes haywire to enhance and evolve whatever project I work on.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Who have you worked with? I'm not a true believer in name dropping past clients, that being said, many of my unknown past clients are way more talented than the ones that have credible names.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Production and Beat Making often get confused, many people think that a producer is just a beat maker, and not what it actually is. A producer (in simplest terms) gets the artist and the project whatever it needs to reach it's full potential. Most producers are beat makers as well, but ultimately the producer is much more than just a beat maker.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What motivates you musically? What are your realistic goals for the next 5 years? What's so special about you?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you're really looking to do something different than whats out there but very marketable, I'm your producer. If you're looking to have your mix carefully processed for a low price, i'm your engineer. Whatever it is, I'm willing to work with you, not for myself.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Keyboard, Mixer, Laptop, Turntables, Mic.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started off at 11 years old DJing, within the next decade, written poetry then turned to songwriting and then songwriting turn to production, etc. So for alsmot 2 decades now I've been heavily involved with music, which then led me to travel down to the city and get opportunities to work in and out of several studios sharing my craft mixing and producing up and down the east coast.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Authentic with a retro feel.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Skrillex, because he seems to have an arsenal of weapons musically that he still hasn't unleashed throughout his huge career so far, combining our styles together experimenting with different genres would be a great addition to the current market.
