Interview with BroeyBeats LLC
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on a project with my friend Marcus who is a rapper/singer. This was the first project I actually worked on inside a studio with the client in person. Him and I spent countless hours working on the beats, coming up with themes and ideas, recording vocals, etc. It was a very organic experience for the both of us. I made the beats and he co-produced next to me, and he would write while I was making the beats. When the beat was done, he'd hop in the booth and lay down some vocal tracks. I did all the engineering tracking, mixing, vocal pitch correction, and mastering; all to the his specifications. It was a very rewarding experience for me as an artist, a producer, and an engineer. You can actually hear one of the songs from the project as the track on my SoundBetter profile!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working on my own project "Broey.". Making chill hip hop and lofi beats! You can find me on any streaming service (:
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog because it has a certain warmth to it that is unmatched by digital. Digital also has its own great perks. There are many great plugins that try to make digital sound like analogue (and I think they do a good job at getting close) but NOTHING beats real circuitry and electronics.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I PROMISE I won't stop working until they are satisfied with the product. I will do whatever I can to help you meet your needs and deliver an excellent customer service experience. I will give you all that I have in knowledge and experience in order to really nail a great quality production.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I LOVE helping people and getting to hear new and unreleased music. It is so inspirational being able to hear someones art before anyone else, and also playing a hand in the final product. To me, helping people is it's own reward.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Why should I allow you to work on my music?" I answer, "good product sells itself. there are other people who do what I do, but not at the prices I do. I should charge more based on the quality of my product, but I want to keep them lower so that I can help more artists get the great quality, professional sound that they want."
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do is that I just "sit at computer and press buttons". HA, I'd like to see those people try to do what I do.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Some references of music they are inspired by and want their sound like. Also their goals as an artist and what their message is trying to portray.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be afraid to be honest with the engineer. It is your art their working with. If you want something to sound a certain way, then tell them that. Your creative vision comes first and foremost. Never settle for anything less than what you want for YOUR art.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A laptop with a DAW, an audio interface, a condenser mic, a midi keyboard, and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro's. Doesn't take much but creativity from making great music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been submerged in music since I was a youth and have a large family history of musicians. I started playing piano around 10, guitar around 11, and started working on my own productions in garage band shortly after. Most of my knowledge on production and engineering comes from reading forums, watching youtube videos and masterclasses, reading books, and also production blogs. All my training is informal, but I have put in my 10,000 hours in the work that I do.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is very jazzy and bluesy. I enjoy chilling to these types of vibes and as a result I produce and generally tend to work on tracks that have a laid back/ downtempo style. Simple music is the best music in my opinion.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with FKJ because he is a brilliant artist with a very unique and organic sound. I would love to watch him work on his craft and just study. He is very great at what he does and I would like to learn more from him.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I have two: 1) ALWAYS trust your ears. 2) If it sounds good, then leave it be. Most of the time we tend to destroy the sonics by adding processing that doesn't actually need it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on chill type music. Lofi hip hop and chillhop beats, R&B, soul, singer/song writer, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my critical listening and trained hearing to help identify problems and facilitate appropriate solutions within a piece of audio.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring my own style to a song while also keeping in mind the client. I aim to bring excellent body, clarity, and most importantly whatever else the client wants. At the end of the day, I work for the client and their wants are most important in the entire process.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process starts with critical listening of the presented audio. After analysis I begin to work by making adjustments to enhance or correct audio based on its needs. Everything is on a needs basis, and no steps are taken without purpose.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is done 100% inside the box and run through Yamaha HS5 monitors. I have a large array of plugins from companies such as Waves, Izotope, Fabfilter, and Slate Digital that will help me meet any needs of the audio presented.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am heavily influenced by artists such as Tame Impala, FKJ, Tom Misch, Galimatias, and many many more. I've spent most of my time analyzing their mixes and production to help push my sound and style further in their directions.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for clients is mixing and mastering of beats and vocals.
