Interview with Luis Gómez

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: 2 songs I made for a hip-hop EP. It´s called Norte, from a couple of friends fo my hometown. I was the beatmaker.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: A personal project call "cities", the first episode is on my youtube channel

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: No, this is all new for me.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Oh, man... I love analog. But, unfortunately, I've not been able to get gear yet. So, I work digitally.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: Communication. I will bring my ideas to the table, but it´s your song, you get the last word. I´m just a realizer of your vision.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The fun and flow that comes within, the experimentation, and the feeling you are creating something from scratch, something unique and that will bring joy to others.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: They mostly ask me how long I'm gonna take to make the song. My answer usually is that a couple of days, a week tops.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: The fact that this an easy thing to do. "You just have to make some beats and put them all together", it's the thing I hate the most.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: References about the result they want. I usually ask them the tell me the story and the reasons they have to make the song (only if appropriate, of course).

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Don´t be afraid of expressing what you really want and what you don´t really like. At the end of the day is a creation we´re making together.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Music gear or gear in general?. I would be on a desert island with a flint, a survival knife, a flare, one of those devices that turns salt water into drinkable water, and with survival on an island book or manual. If we're talking about music, however, would have a MacBook Pro, an OP-1 (love those), a couple of Yamaha HS5 monitors, probably a drumset, and definitely a solar power electric system for use all that stuff.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: About a year. I've been creating beats for a while, but making a job of it, about a year.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Well, I´m a drummer, so I think everything I do is based on rhythm. If you work with me you can spect a lot of progressions and cool loops with a lot of improvisation on it

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Whoa!, that is a big question. I believe that anyone who trusts me and my ideas will get my trust and support as well.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: I believe that our work is based on transmitting something. Everything in the process is equally important, of course. And it definitely has to be fun. But if we focus on the message, the emotion (or emotions) of the song, we'll always make a beautiful piece.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Most of my experience working with others is on hip-hop beats. In my youtube channel, with my personal projects, I've explored some other genres.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Maybe the ability to really get the client´s idea. I also think I´m pretty good at understanding the emotion of the beat (I have studies on it, have a B.A. in Psychology)

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I think it´s obvious to say that what I bring to a song is my own rhythm and vision, but besides all that, I believe the integration of what the client wants at first and the final product is what I can bring to the table. Maybe the ability to really get the client´s idea.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: Well, it starts with the client´s requirement. I usually ask for references about the piece the client wants, to a better understanding of the beat he or she wants. Then I start the production process and I send him or her little pieces of the beat to see if the path I've chosen is the right one, until the beat is complete and the client is satisfied. I usually charge for the song in two moments, 50% at the beginning and 50% after the track is complete.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: It´s actually very simple (for now), my laptop, keyboard, headsets, and speakers.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Well, Anderson .Paak, Snarky Puppy, Michael Kiwanuka, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jon Batiste,Bob Dylan, Kid Cudi, Timbaland, Hans Zimmer, Ludwig Göransson and d the list go on and on.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Beatmaking. Usually, they contact me for simple tracks and 2-3 minute hip-hop beats.
