My main activity is Hip-Hop music production but I sometimes produce electro or soundtrack music. I can provide full production or just elements such as drums, piano or orchestral melodies. I usually like to process my composition with a vintage style (vinyl or cassette type) but can also keep it more natural. Can also help with mixing / mastering
I am a French music producer, I have lived in London for 8 years and I am now ready to spend 2021 in Auckland, New-Zealand.
Musically my biggest influence is the classic 90 hip-hop era. Soulful samples, dusty drums, dirty bass lines.. this is my jam!
Nowadays I compose these samples myself for the very most of the time. It's a very different approach and requires a lot of work, but I like the challenging aspect of it! It also obviously make it quite easier when it comes to distribution and sales from a copyright point of view!
That being said I also love to experiment with different types of music (mainly electro or soundtracks) and I'm having a lot of fun doing so!
Outside of music my professional background includes E-commerce, Customer Experience, Tech, and I pride myself to be professional in any type of business that I conduct.

Interview with Ortist Music
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Outside of the musical world, music producers and beatmakers are so often mistaken for DJs...
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just reach out to me! I'm responsive and always looking forward to do something. So let's discuss your needs and see what can I do for you!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: So many rappers that I'd like to work with, but not only. I really would like to do a project with a soul music type singer.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Hard work. I know this is not specifically to music production, but this is probably the best tip anyone can give you. Do not wait for inspiration to arrive, just work hard. I've always been on this type of mentality but I've recently read "The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battle" book by Steven Pressfield and it reinforced that feeling. Strongly recommended.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I guess I like to bring an analogue vintage type touch. I know that it can be seen a bit cliché to be stuck with the vintage sound, and I make sure not to always process songs the same way. But overall I usually like to end with something colourful and warm.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I try not to stick too much with a standard process, but I try to make my work as easy as possible by pre-saving the VSTs and mixing tools that I use the most. Otherwise when I start a beat I usually will start by the melody, then the bass, then the drums. But I force myself to do differently from time to time 😁
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's quite a nice home studio setup. Nice professional speakers and headphones, midi keyboard, and my main tool is probably my MPC live.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quite a lot.. Dj Premier, The Alchemist, Apollo Brown, 9th Wonder, Nottz, Stoupe.. I mean there are so many andI'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of them. Although he is now exclusively a drummer, J-zone was in my opinion one of the most talented, unique and underrated beatmaker of his era. I am quite inspired by the 70s. From Soul music to obscure Soviet music, this era is where I find the most the energy and recordings that inspire me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: - Music production / beat-making > Price will depends on exclusivity, amount of songs requested, and / or complexity - Separate programs (drums, piano, orchestral) > Price will depends on exclusivity, amount of bars, amount of songs requested, and / or complexity Mixing > Price will depends on the amount of leads to mix and the length of the song. Mastering > Price is pretty cheap because I am not a Mastering engineer, but I know how to do some simple and efficient mastering. I'm pretty responsive so feel free to just reach out to me and we will discuss what can I do for you :)
