What I like most about working with Mika is that he has the ability to give honest feedback and development ideas still leaving a positive feeling. He has great sense of finding the best structure for the song as well as what instruments to use and so on. He hears things in the mix I never saw were even there bothering. It does not matter if you need a song from scrach, a mix for your track or just some hints to get your song to the next level, I recommend this guy for the job!
I´ve been working with different mucisians in the past and what I love about Mika is his ability to challenge himself and look at the big picture - never stuck in old habits and ways of doing music. Now that he´s more in to the world of producing, his strength really is his long experience being a highly talented musician himself, combined with great, modern production skills and know-how. Creating music is a process where all players have to be able to listen to each other and work together, and in that process I highly respect Mika´s ability to lead, create and find solutions.
I had the opportunity to work with Mika on about 70% of the tracks on my debut album. Not only is he competent, versatile and open-minded, but he understood my vision immediately. In fact, in some cases, he understood it better than I did. I wouldn't exist as an artist without Mika and his invaluable contribution. My tracks would still be just melodies sung a cappella into my telephone. Not only did Mika help me turn those into real songs, but he gave me the confidence to sing them and start living my childhood dream. I owe him big time. I always will. I would recommend him to any artist.
Interview with Mika Somppi
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it doesn't feel like a job at all.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, headphones, knife and a fishing rod. I don't need the 5th one :)
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get the basics right. Do NOT try to fix in the mix!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mostly work with pop, rock and electro but ready to try out pretty much everything.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Versatility - I'm happy to work on almost any genre. What matters is a good song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can make magic to your song, making it sound bigger, wider and clearer.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically the song writers send me vocal demo recorded with their phone and couple of reference tracks. I search the chord structure and create an awesome sounding beat. I sing a demo vocal track myself or use the vocals sent by the artist. I can then record the vocals myself, but usually they are done remotely. Finally, I mix and master the track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have everything that is needed these days for a top quality audio production: sound treated room, iMac, UAD Apollo audio interface with a proper microphone and studio monitors.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: So far I've been mostly working with songwriters who simply provide me with a demo vocal track. I take care of the rest, composing and creating the beat, arrangement and vocal recording. Then I mix and master the track.
