I worked with Thomas Daniel before. He was the singer/songwriter on a track of my own artists name 2 Late Mates. He did his job really well!
Analog or digital and why?
I work in a digital studio. I have to be fair, I have a lot of respect for professional analog producers, but in my opinion will digital improve the workflow!

What's your strongest skill?
The mixdown of a track is my strongest skill

What's your typical work process?
I always start with writing a melody. After that i'll work on the first break and drop, when this is finished the client gets his first preview. You can tell me what you like, or what I have to change so I can work on the second preview. I will workout the whole track included intro and outro. What means, the second preview will be the whole track. You can tell me again what you like or what I have to change. If you're agree with the arrangement, I'll work on the mixdown and master. After this you will receive all the files!
