Interview with Rolling Red Records
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Ooh, Film Scoring, i would say it has some of the most fantastic expressions found in music.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently working with 2 bands and 2 Solo Artists.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes. Mustard Seed Studios Stratford A great service, amazing gear and very accessable.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog due to the fidelity and quality that wraps a linen cloth over those frequnecies that digital hasn't nor probably will ever reach to, although some plugins today of analog gear can be suprising to say the least.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Radio ready and quality support.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The expression on the bands face, its priceless.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Money? Always money, the age we live in is constant, you have to spend money to make money.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Time!! Bands think a mix takes two seconds, if you want a radio ready track you have to let your ego not take control and be patient, because when the track is ready you will be blown away.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Show me some previous work? Are you ready to record? Have you practised enough?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Preparation, revision and solid outlook on what they want to achieve by coming to me.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If there was power, all i need is a Tascam 34b with reels, Neve 1076, Royer R121, Gretch Jazz kit and a Wal fretless bass. Could recreate the 60s with tha!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I Have been playing drums since the age of 7 and guitar from 8, music has followed me, maybe even haunting me! But as time has passed my true happyness and calling happens behind the desk.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Perfectionist A mix should not leave your ears until every box has been ticked and the Musician expectations are blown away.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Many Great bands I would of love to of worked with back in the hey days 60s - 70s
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Until you can sit back and listen to the music in peace without thinking, is when the song is ready.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Can range from, Electronica to Drum & Bass to Rock, We cover a selection of Genre's, but do not cover Grime.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say Mixing but I have been told I'm similar to a headmaster If I'm leading the Recording sesh or Producing. As I feel you need to push the Band or Artist to get the real soul sound from them, as the home studio has made alot of musicians lazy and unprepred, but when they enter Rollling Red, standards are set and quality is high.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A fully fleshed radio ready track, no messing around!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It can vary from day to day but mostly in the mixing room, either mixing or mastering. I would be in an out checking on sessions, talking to my engineers, having updates on each session. Keeping the bands happy!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: A Recording Room with Vocal Booth - fully kitted out with A class equipment A Rehearsal Room fully kitted out with B class Equipment A Mixing Room with a pair of Yamaha NS-10m Monitors and a Tascam DM24 Mixer All Rooms come with outboard gear but varies on the day
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Rupert Neve Andrew Scheps Bob Clearmountain Rick Rubin Little Richard Black Sabbath Hanz Zimmer
