I am a certified music producer that can assist you with any aspect of the music-making process, from production to mastering.
I was trained by and apprenticed for electronic artist Lucas Abend who has worked with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Skrillex, and during this time I honed my skills in making a wide variety of genres of music. I primarily work with Hip-Hop but I also have a lot of experience in House, Ambient, Post-Punk, and Synthwave. I am always learning and eager to work on new projects so please feel free to reach out at any time.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
Interview with @prodjason
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: When I was being trained in music production I worked on various projects ranging from video game sound design to local artists' demos but I was very proud that I was delivering work my colleagues and clients were impressed by.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I currently am working on a band with some friends in my city as well as a clothing line!
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I don't know anyone on SoundBetter yet, but I hope to meet some new friends.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for sure, it has the sort of timbre that just sounds so rich and warm and it really makes a track feel more alive.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My 'promise' to my clients is to work alongside them to ensure I am delivering a song that they enjoy and are proud of.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I enjoy everything about the process of making music, but that feeling, once you have finished a project or song, is the best to me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I often get asked what my style is, and I say that I don't really have one, I just like music.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think one of the biggest misconceptions is that you have to be amazing at an instrument like the guitar to make music, I know amazing producers who have never touched a normal instrument in their life.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: My biggest question for a client is what exactly is the mood you want for this track and if they have any references.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask questions, I am looking to be on your team so all you have to do is ask and I will try my best to accommodate and help.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Interface, Guitar, Mic, Synth, and I would be set.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started making music on my laptop when I was 13 and all I have wanted to do since was just keep making music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I definitely have a more laid-back and spaced-out sound that I enjoy making. Lots of synth work but I still try to get as much out of natural instruments as I can.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: My dream would be to work with Kanye West, I adore his approach to music and the teams he assembles. I believe we would work well together and make some great music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I think the most important thing to remember is to have fun, when you entirely enjoy what you are making you will find that it turns out so much better.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: For most of my time making music I have worked on Hip-Hop but I have been able to branch out more and I have worked on alternative rock and electronic music quite a bit lately.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think my strongest skill is my willingness to try new things while still remaining focused on the goal of the client.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring solid fundamental recording, production, mixing, and mastering techniques but I am also always willing to experiment and help give a song what it needs to be memorable and a joy to listen to.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My ideal work process is to just go with the flow, I know generally I am looking to bring balance and clarity to a song but I find the music is so much more personal and unique when I let it tell me what it needs.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have two computers (one MacBook Pro and one custom desktop for more demanding projects), I use a Universal Audio Apollo Twin X with a variety of headphones, a full-size midi keyboard, guitars, full drumset, Korg Minilogue, countless plug-in synthesizers/effects, and a Lewitt LCT 440 Pure.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I find inspiration in all music, however, artists like Aphex Twin and Kanye West have always been special to me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do a bit of everything but more often than not I am finishing production and mixing.
