Interview with The Oni
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a totally original album and hoping to find a performing artist that would like to use it to grow their brand.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, they can both be very useful in the right hands.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That making original music on a computer is easy
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Map out what you want in a music career before you make any moves. If your looking to hire Top end everything, make sure you have the hustle and drive to promote the finished project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been writing and producing original music for ten years. Originally I wanted to be a famous performing artist like everyone else. But over time I discovered that my obsession with music is more about the studio than the fame and crowds. Nowadays I just want to be in the studio being creative and learning new skills.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Colorful and maybe welcoming
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Kid Cudi or Twenty One Pilots. They both helped me tremendously in facing the mental health problems I've faced all my life.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Research Compression (It makes everything, especially vocals sound great)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip hop, Pop, and chill stuff. I love listening to Rock, Punk, Oldies, Funk and many others. I'm just much better at writing the other stuff
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Probably gaming Lmao. Been doing that even before music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: An original sound that still sounds familiar. When I write or produce a song, I tend to already have the song done in my head. I just need to pull it out and place it in the recording.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Experimentation of sounds and skills are at the forefront of my work. I really enjoy just sitting down and tweaking a synth or audio clip for hours on end until I hear the inspiration for a new song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is full of audio gear and instruments left out in the open. I leave it out to help inspire me in creating and writing my best stuff. I feel like if I put everything away after each use id eventually just stop getting it out to begin with. Its a little messy at times but it helps keeps things loose.
