A: The 1975, they have a dope sound and their production is crazy.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: With a typical mix I start by listening to the song all the way through and listen to the style and vibe of the song along with problems i notice within the mix. I then proceed to edit if need be, then move to mixing.
