Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: When producing and mixing a song I bring creativity and emotion. I want the listener to fill like there apart of an experience rather than just listening to a song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When it comes to mixing a record I like to live with it. When I mix a record, I take a whole day to mix that one record. First, I organize the beat stems and place the vocals on their proper inserts. After, this I spend time mixing the beat and making sure all the instruments come in warm and lush. I pay a great amount of attention to the bass and melody. Making sure they fit into the mix perfectly while also making sure the drums punch through. Then I listen to the record and begin cleaning the vocals. This process includes taking out breathes, white noise, and any noises that uncomfortably stand out. At this point I mute the beat and work on the vocal mix. I like to make sure the vocals cut through the record but not too much. Just enough to sit in the mix and so the listener can hear the artist clearly. Then I master the track and it is good to go.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As an engineer, I am very much inspired by Drake's engineer and producer Noah "40" Shebib. The lushness, warmth, and clarity of the OVO camp's vocals are nearly unmatched. My other inspiration is Kendrick Lamar's engineer Derek Ali. Like OVO's vocals, TDE vocals are very natural and warm. However, the creativity of there mixes is unmatched. The effects on the vocals and the way the instruments sit in the mix is incredible. As a music producer, one of my greatest influences in music production is Kanye. Kanye has a unique ability to create is own sound and continues elevate it. Another one of my greatest influences is Pharrell. Pharrell productions are in a class of there own. The uniqueness, sound selection, and diversity all make Pharrell songs legendary. Timbaland, is an easy pick in the list of influences. His drums are simply unmatched. I can go on and on. These are couple honorable mentions: Quincy Jones, Scott Storch, No I.D., Detail, Metro Boomin, and Jimmy Iovine
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Normally I both record and produce my clients. I also complete the post production mixing and mastering.
