One-stop-shop for production and mixing. I will take your dream and make it a reality. I specialize in hip hop, trap, and lofi.

7+ years of experience. I have worked with many local artists as well as artists I met online. I have worked with artists of varying styles of music, but I specialize in hip hop, trap, and lofi.

As the owner/producer/engineer of L. Marquee Productions, I will work with you until the idea that you hear in your head is properly displayed in an audible form. I greatly value your voice and vision, and I want to enhance it as much as I can. If you enjoy creating and understand the power and influence of your voice, we will work well together.

I use Logic Pro X, Maschine, and Pro Tools. My plug-in library includes but isn't limited to Komplete, Serum, Omnisphere, Waves, and Universal Audio.

Interview with L. Marquee

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I'm working on singles for myself; some instrumental and some with lyrics. I wanted to start releasing music on a consistent basis and I am. I encourage other artists to do the same.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: I mostly record and mix for artists in the Northern Virginia area. Additionally, I produce and mix for artists that I meet online, and I write, produce, mix, and master my own music.

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: One of my favorite projects that I worked on was Spuddies by Buto. Buto was one of the first artists I've ever worked with, and during the time that we worked together, he pushed me to be the best producer, engineer, and artist that I could be; more than anyone else who I've ever worked with. One of the most important lessons I learned during the months that we spent working on that project was being open to different workflows, adapting to how the artist wants to work, and not being afraid to do make musical or mixing decisions that are "wrong" in your own mind if that's what the artist wants. Even though my production and mixing skills have far exceeded what was displayed on that project, it's still one of the favorite ones I've ever worked on.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. I'm a young producer and I've done the majority of my work without analog gear. I mix entirely in the box, and I think it's way more convenient and affordable than analog gear.

  9. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  10. A: What inspires you to create? What is your motivation for making music? What audience are you trying to reach? What do you need that will help take your music or career to a new level?

  11. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  12. A: Mac, Universal Audio Apollo Twin, Neuman TLM 102, electric guitar, Maschine.

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Sample choice/sound selection is VERY important! Choosing poor quality sounds and samples will make it harder than it needs to be to get a good mix.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: I specialize in hip hop, trap, and lofi, but I also have experience working with r&b and electronic/pop-influenced music.
