Interview with Jordan Metro

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: My inspiration comes from the old and new greats such as Kanye West, No ID, Just Blaze, Noah "40", J. Cole, Boi-1nda, Travis Scott, Tyler the Creator and Key Wane.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I work in 2 separate studios, a home set up for my music production, and a recording studio in the city of Halifax for vocal tracking. My home setup and based around FL Studio and consists of a Roland Juno keyboard, studio monitors and a preamp for recording whatever other sounds. The recording studio works with ProTools and consists of a M Audio ProjectMix controller, a RODE mic, and a pair of Yamaha HS8s.

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  6. A: When producing, I'll either have a beat that someone will be inspired by to work with, or they will have an idea or something already written and have me with around their idea, which I find to be more fun and a nicer result.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: Intelligents.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: My knowledge of music theory and music business.

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

  12. A: Usually either chill vibe music, or darker, deep tone 808 driven music. All of which I like to call "car music". Im not much of a club or dance music producer but I always dabble.

  14. A: Learn to play an instrument.

  15. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Diverse but cohesive. Often dark and ambient but chill and intelligent.

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: What are they planning for the song and project?

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: I enjoy creating art, painting pictures with sounds is what production is to me.

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