I've never been more impressed by the service from Abbas KAUSAR..my favorite producer to date!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥
Abbas is friendly and professional and has a genuine willingness to support others in their music where he can. He seems humble and those kind of people are hard to come by in the music industry.
Me and Abbas connected about a year ago, and I was extremely impressed with his style, flavor and ability to blend sounds together to create the perfect feeling! That’s what music is about to me, creating a feeling, a vibe and he’s got it packed down! Definitely looking forward to working with him more in the future.
Interview with ABBAS KAUSAR
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Although, I know the question is in past tense, I'm actually most proud of the projects I'm currently working on. The music we create within our collective is exciting and fulfilling. I work primarily as a Producer, though I'm also involved in the writing and I'm being encouraged to sing again too. I've always thought of myself as forward thinking, especially musically, and I'm excited to have the opportunity to set the pace of the future of music with the Artists we write for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: In no particular order: MacBook, AKG USB Mic, Akai MPK Mini, Headphones and probably a little generator to get the island studio running.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "How much do you charge?" I do have average price ranges for various jobs, however I set these with the time-consumption element of the job in mind. My personal intent is to provide value and to perhaps find a musical relationship.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music for over 15 years. I started off as a singer and found other avenues to express myself musically, through writing, producing, etc. I'd found my feet, so to speak, as a producer / sound-engineer. I began to educate myself in the field and connect with other musicians. Eventually, I found the mentors and opportunities that've allowed me to leave an imprint in MUSIC.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Disney and other upcoming projects with the Moonstone Collective.

A: Conversation - let's determine where we stand musically and how we can provide value to each other.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I grew up in a cultural melting pot called London. The combination of western music and my eastern heritage has had a major influence on my style. I'm not afraid to be myself or step away from the norm. I draw naturally from my influences and I take the creative steps that I feel are necessary for the music alone.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Jhene Aiko. Her style/sound is so otherworldly. I'd love to be a part of that energy and process. Other Artists include, H.E.R., 6lack, Summer Walker, Justin Timberlake - to name a few.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music is an integral part of my life. I tell stories through melodies and sounds. The fact that I can share my story with others or even help others tell their stories, in this way, is definitely my favourite aspect of my job.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Not really a misconception. But I catch even those closest to me by surprise, with my versatility in abilities and styles. I'm not bound to any one particular role or style of music.
