Interview with David Lust

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
Ive worked on a lot of projects that i am proud of and can talk about but the project that makes me more proud than any other was when i produced a song that my best friend wanted to make for his wife. It brought so many people to tears of joy during that wedding the feelings were incredible knowing i had that type of power to do such a thing.
What are you working on at the moment?
A hip hop album from an up and coming artist based out of California, USA

Analog or digital and why?
Both. Because ;)

What do you like most about your job?
MUSIC. I love music and the feelings i get after i complete a song and watch people enjoy what i produced. there is no feeling like it.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Nothing specific. i talk to them about what they're looking for and ask for a reference track.

Go with someone that trust their own quality and will work with you during the project. I will complete your first song free because i trust in my quality and client relationships.

Computer, interface, monitor speakers, microphone and guitar.

For over ten years. I started with an internship in a studio mostly keeping the place clean lol. Then i started sitting in on sessions. Went from that to assisting the main engineer. Ive always had my own laptop and doing my own practice and work on the side. My goal has been to run my own show which i am building now. Im offering 1 free song to each new client so they can get to know me and hear what i can do before making any commitment.
