Interview with Casino Productions LLC.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm incredibly proud of my music. This is because I do every single part of the process. Writing, performing, recording, mixing, mastering. I make all the artwork, do all the promo, and handle everything myself until further notice.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My first full length Album & a song called Termites by Shugga Malone.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Analog is a rich man's luxury.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: If you trust me with your art I'll treat it like my own. I don't blow through mixes and honestly have trouble remembering it's a job because I love what I do. I'm really good at it.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Listening to a bounce the next day and being stoked on what I've been able to make.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Question: What's your prices? Answer: What's your budget? Let's find a way to make this happen.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think a lot of people know me for my music. This is great to be known as a recording artist but to be honest, my ability as a producer is pretty damn close to my songwriting talent.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to ask one question at the beginning of each project. When listening to this song: "Where are we?" I'm a big fan of this kind of locational visualization. It's much easier to establish a vibe or creative tone for the song when compared to more common tropes such as "What's the narrative/story?" or "What are you trying to say?" These questions tend to overwhelm and are a little deeper than necessary imo. A lot of times they prove to be harder to answer and have the opposite of intended effect on the artist.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Go with someone you think you'd get along with over anything. That includes basing the decision off of things like price, credits, and portfolios. In the long run, being able to communicate with ease proves to be the most valuable attribute of any musical relationship every time.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic Guitar. Macbook. Apollo Twin X. Controller. Solid Headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Starting out with guitar as a kid, I quickly realized my greatest passion is songwriting. I studied guitar, vocals, performance, and music theory for many years. Eventually, music production struck my interest, and was natural for me when I realized how much of a weapon it can be for songwriting and development. I studied it and sound engineering at The Recording Conservatory of Austin for 3 years. After graduating in 2015 I've slowly built my skills and relationships in both production and songwriting. I started my company Casino Productions, LLC in 2020 and run my business parallel to my career as a Recording and Performing Artist.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Different. As an artist myself, I've always ignored the "you MUST define your sound" echo chamber from my critics and co collaborators. I simply don't believe in aiming. Not my style.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Kanye West. I think we're both crazy in the best way possible when it comes to co creating.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: MAKE A PLAN AND STICK TO IT. Every single time you open up your DAW.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rap, Pop, Singer/Songwriter.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Songwriting. This can be huge when it's least expected.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Musical ability and creative energy. Experience comes second to those but I have plenty of it. I like to make suggestions, and often find myself laying down guitar, keys, bass, you name it- for many of the projects I've worked on for others.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get to know the artist first. Especially if possible before work even begins. This really helps establish a solid rapport which makes for an easier workflow once work begins. It's also important for me to fully understand the goals and ideas surrounding the artist's vision for the project and log those down so they're always present with me even if the artist is not. From there depending on what we're working on I set a time frame and goal list and begin.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work with Logic Pro X. I use an Apollo Twin X interface which is an absolute beast of a machine. JBL 308P Mk2 monitors. Autotune and Waves Tune Real-Time equipped. Mojave 301 FET, 2x SM57 microphones. I also have a collections of acoustic, electric, and bass guitars for studio recording. Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 3. Full size upright Rudolph Wurlitzer Piano in studio.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love any artist who takes on more than what is expected. I'm a big fan of rappers who also produce. As well as musicians who want to be involved in the whole process and are interested in more than just laying down some vocals and letting the engineer handle all the rest. I know even before I became well versed in production, I wanted to be.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording, Mixing, and Editing. It's a pretty even split between starting from scratch with and Artist in my studio and receiving a project from a client online for remote mixing.
