Love you Dipesh, such a nice human being and a great guy to work with. Thanks for mixing my tracks and I look forward to have
you on board for the projects in future. All the best bro
Dipesh you totally rock man. Stupendous dedication, Extraordinary ear for music, and above all A Great personality to Work with. He totally makes you feel Comfortable working around him, and also gets the mix to YOUR satisfaction. Absolutely rigorous and persistent with respect to his work. ONCE WORKED WITH HIM, WILL ALWAYS WORK WITH HIM (trust me)
Very easy to work with. Extremely patient and understanding. And most importantly, great understanding of what the artist wants from their music sonically. It's always a pleasure working with him.
We worked together for 2 films and few albums and my experience was awesome. Sometimes, a composer don't know the final output until everything is live and together like older days and his creation is dependent upon the sound engineer. He is only happy when the sound engineer takes his work one step ahead. DSB offers you more than your expectations
I've mastered a number of songs that Dipesh has mixed and he is always a pleasure to work with. Not only are his mixes consistently good, he also listens extremely well and has a detailed understanding of the work he's done and what he wants back from mastering. He's a great human being and is very easy to communicate with. Highly recommended.

Interview with Dipesh Sharma AKA DSB
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I have worked in Bollywood... and that is where I have trained. Its is the second largest movie industry after Hollywood and it has the privilege of incorporating genres from all over the world apart from India's very own vast culture of music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make space for vocals. More number of tracks doesn't necessarily mean kick ass production.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I am very organic by nature. Even if its EDM... it should breathe.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Its been over 15 years now... and it has been a long process. Alot of ear training and experimenting. Really there is no guru that I follow... except the sound in my head.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You will have a signature sound.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid. Best of both worlds.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Apart from Mixing and Mastering... i am also notorious for Vocal Production and FX.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: For me its all about the vibe of the song... the vision of the producer or the creator. I aim at enhancing that.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working in and around music... adding to it creatively with my skill-set and science.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I have always been proud of anything that I have worked on. Else it wouldn't have been on my discography.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would like for you to trust the engineer with his expertise. I like someone who is open to new ideas... but is also sure about his own vision. I am allergic to lost characters.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I compose and produce music !
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Its a musical based on the life of Mother Teresa and tracks for a multi billion dollar amusement park project in Dubai, which is based on bollywood.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I enjoy Vocal FX alot. I may keep playing and toying with ideas for that one orgasmic moment :-)
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am an ITB guy... I think I lay my ideas faster that way. I work on protools with some choicest selection of plugins.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Well, right after importing files I do a whole lot of house keeping in the session. Naming stuff, making internal busses, then comes processing individual tracks, which also involves a lot of steroid shots here and there, automation for movement, FX for embellishments, I should start feeling it by now, else onto eradicating bugging elements (if its a bad production). The next day hearing it fresh, enhancing the vibe further with minor level changes and mastering. At this point the client shall be mailed the first draft.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A MacBook Pro, Protools dongle, my trackball, my audio interface and my DT 990pro's. This sums up to five, so I guess I am working on the internal drive :-( !
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Who is the target audience ? Whats the very foundation of the track ? and what is he looking for ? How (to be very specific) may I help realise his vision ?
