Ti scrivo Da Londra.
Mi hai insegnato un sacco di cose. Abbiamo composto tante canzoni insieme. Ogni anno abbiamo sperimentato tecniche sui nostri brani, come fosse un laboratorio scientifico. Mi hai sempre stupito per il tuo spirito professionale e per la tua capacità di adattamento in questi 10 anni, dove la musica si è evoluta. Il mondo della musica ci merita in altri luoghi. Sei sempre il numero uno. Take care Nic.
Un professionista come pochi, nonchè un grandissimo compositore musicale.
Meriterebbe scenari molto più grandi.
Ho avuto modo di collaborare con lui alla realizzazione di diversi brani musicali inediti.
Ho avuto il piacere di collaborare con Nico Forzati in diverse occasioni e ogni volta sono rimasto trasecolato dal modus operandi. Professionalità e qualità sono il suo leitmotiv.
Nice person to work with. He is capable and patient.

Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Only my acoustic guitar because... there isn't electricity. ;-)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to ask if they have any specific deadlines and also for reference tracks and rough mixes
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Please provide references for a specific sound you are hoping to achieve. A production can go many different directions and it's best for me to understand what you are looking for so we are both happy.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

A: I bring a unique perspective to any given song. I try to make new sounds and not scared to record every idea to see what it does for a song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When it comes to making a record I typically listen to a band or artists previous work/live performance to see what the vibe is and what they have/haven't done. When it comes to a mix I would ask the artist to send me references if they are digging another artists sound. I would also listen to the rough mix that is sent to hear if there is anything specific or cool that i would want to keep in my mix.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are so many artists and other professionals that inspire me and push me to become a better Mixer/Engineer. No matter the genre i can fine something special that will catch my ear,
