Very organised in the approach, cool ideas and great fun to work with!
Once again, super professional and a pleasure to work with Shatterjack - definitely recommend!!
Very professional and quick. The total turnaround took no more than 2-3 sessions. He was very organised from the start and very detailed in his approach. He helped me with the additional production and mastering and now the track sounds sick! Highly recommend!
Interview with Shatterjack
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Probably that all I do all day is sit in a dark room nodding my head
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Ekcle, I was a part of the act for 4 years before moving on due to musical differences. I was one of the two producers / writers in the duo. We did a lot in that time, especially considering how different and 'left-field' the music is. We achieved radio plays from all across the globe, including continued support on BBC Radio 1 in the UK.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Debut singles and EPs for several artists, pending releases in early 2021.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Starting producing when I was 18, now I'm 27. Done loads of things in that time, artist projects, productions, film & TV works, pretty much everything.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A blend of emotive musicality and dark, heavy low end, all combined with driving, punching drums (all whilst keeping the song 'commercially viable')
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: FKA Twiggs, because I think we'd make something ridiculously epic and make everyone's hair stand on end
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always reference your mixes in mono!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: The darker side of pop, or the more aggressive side of rap/drill/UK underground music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The speed of production & the vision / way I see tracks developing. I also have a good ear to make things dramatic / extra epic, especially with backing vocals, and harmonies.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Either goosebumps, the 'screw face' of approval, or ideally, both.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Starting with something melodic or creating a beat from scratch, and building the song from there. Sometimes if the artist has a hook we craft the beginnings of the song around the hook.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Writing full songs from scratch, providing bespoke & unique instrumentals for the artist, as well as recording & producing the vocal if appropriate (due to locations etc). I produce beats for rappers / vocalists.
