Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: the key to a hit is creating a catchy melody, not only in the beat, but also the flow, find the proper balance between repetition and smooth transitions to keep listeners engaged, also allowing them to enjoy multiple aspects of your project. This makes your song more universal and memorable. Don't overproduce, bring the best out of each instrument an verse, ultimately know the song before performing.

(when provided with all stems/trackouts). If i receive a compressed beat file, ad we record voice, then I bring the best character and clarity the best I can.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually discuss the budget, then get to know the artist, then start to discuss the end goal of the song, or project. i do the first mix alone, then discuss changes or modifications if the artist feels it is necessary. I'll send and modify mixes until we get the song where the artist visions.
