Interview with K-laz
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First i listen to the track a few times to get a grip of the artists vision. I then move forward a bit differently depending on what they wanna achieve with their track. Often i start by finding the "sweet spot" in the track, it could be a sample, a bass or a drum sound that caracetrize the sound theyre after, and i try to build the whole mix around that.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is located in the centre of Stockholm with lots of vintage gear like SSL board, API, Yamaha, Joe Meek pre-amps, and vintage compressors and tape machine.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I take inspiration from everything thats real. From old jazz-vinyl to 90:s boombap and the new beatmaking-scene of Lofi-producers thats current today.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Production, mixing and mastering.
