Interview with WiLDFiRE
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: In Soca, dancehall and reggae, a RIDDIM is a compilation of multiple songs on the same beat. I produced a riddim named Breaking Dawn Riddim in 2016. The mixture of Afro Beat with Jab Jab music alongside the bangin’ songs, grabbed the attention of Soca lovers everywhere
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I am working on a project with International Stephen (Producer/DJ). Background vocals for artists as well as my own music
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Check out Rebel One of Rebel Muzik. Talented and amazing Producer/DJ/Musician
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I haven’t worked with analog enough to answer that
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to take my time and give my all!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like finishing a project and releasing it. When it’s received well I love the satisfaction it brings knowing that I was a part of that.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: To be honest, I haven’t had many introductory questions asked. I’m usually referred to a client by someone so they typically know my capabilities. Questions usually are asked as we go along the process of recording.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it’s all about the money. I tend to go above and way beyond the money that I get paid. If I and the artist aren’t satisfied then the money reward doesn’t mean much to me.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of song are we working on? Are you opposed to making any changes if need be? Are you sensitive to taking direction? What is your deadline?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would advise them to go for quality, but don’t be opposed to working with professionals from other genres
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, mic, headphones, interface, midi keyboard
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It has been a hell of a ride! Lol. I have been doing this for roughly 12 years and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is smooth and efficient.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with anyone dope!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Recording music is not only about the technicalities. Pressing record, stop and play, is only a fraction of the process. Take your time to understand the artists’ voice, mannerisms, and personality. Match their energy and help them bring their vision into fruition.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Caribbean music...Soca, Reggae, Dancehall, etc.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is speaking the language of an singer/artist and a producer.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring creativity and clarity to any song I am a part of. My clients usually accomplish more than they bargain for when they record with me.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process when recording would be making the artist feel comfortable, exchange energy and ideas by talking and reasoning before they even touch the booth. We normally go over the song by singing out loud to make sure we have the right tone and vibe for the song they came to record. I like to take things step by step but be efficient in a timely manner.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am currently in the process of building my own studio, but I have a home studio capable of recording vocals, working on vocal production and beat production. I am available for travel to other studios.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love to learn from anyone I can watch on YouTube lol. Other than my peers and colleagues in my community, I have been inspired by professionals such as Kuk Harrel, Oak Felder, T-Pain, Pharrell, to name a few notable ones.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly work as a recording engineer, vocal producer and background vocalist.
