Interview with Oliver Summers (SJOO)
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now, I'm looking at expanding my knowledge and production on EDM and its surrounding genres and how K Pop manages to implement these styles.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Ollie Weeks (also known as DJ Weeks), he's the one that recommended SoundBetter to me and is super talented DJ and producer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, although digital does a great job at replicating analog sounds.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Here is what I promise when you choose to work with me: • Quick in response time and amendments • Meet any business requests and deadlines you may have • Great personal service throughout the process • Bring a fresh perspective to your vision • Have a one-to-one discussion about the project • Be creative, communicative and caring
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That each project offers something new, feels like you are able to consistently keep it feeling fresh.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1. Laptop of course! 2. Guitar 3. Amp 4. Yamaha HS5 monitors 5. Nintendo Switch!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: This is always a difficult question, but ultimately it is up to the listener to decide.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Growing up, I was a huge fan of Usher during the Confessions era. I would still love to write a song with him!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop, K Pop, Grime, Pop.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically, when I'm writing a pop track it always starts with the piano, whether it's grand or electric piano. From there I will elaborate on the song through production of different sounds and arrangements to complete it. With Hip Hop, I see it more as sound design and trying to push the boundaries with the soundscape.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's comfortable and intimate setting (will share on Instagram) which helps productivity. Wouldn't mind less wires though!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Growing up, The Neptunes were my biggest inspiration for a lot of music producers, particularly those in their 20's. They wrote every hit on the radio at one stage. (Yes, I even said radio!)
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly focus on Hip Hop (US market), Grime (UK market), K Pop (Asian market) and Pop (Worldwide market) Given that there are so many sub genres out there, I'm always open to exploring these with my clients.
