Interview with $cotW8
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

A: Releasing 5 Remixes and 2 newly remixed Remixes in the next few weeks and available everywhere now
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I don't stop until we make your best song yet!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The entire process from idea to mixing it down and then releasing it into the wild and seeing the results of my labor.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: When can we start? Right away! How much do you charge? Depends on the project and length of the project.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm a bedroom Producer who remixes songs and doesn't have his own original voice or ideas.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's your favorite song of all time? What made it your favorite? If you could make a song similar to it, how would you make it your own?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: You'll not only get great music but you might end up making a best friend afterwards too. I'm professional but personable too.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Amp, Mic, Drum Kit, Piano, and an Electric guitar.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Just a bedroom DJ/Producer who gets to live his dream and make beautiful music at heart but an fun loving music nerd who wants to make classics. Started in 2003 but didn't realize my dreams until 2018.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Modern day disco mixed with Power pop, and Urban music mixed with EDM.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: If I had a time machine, it would be a tie with The Beatles, or Frank Sinatra but modern day I'd definitely want to get Dr. Dre, Kanye West and Madeon in a room and make magic!! I'd also love to work with Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj too.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: K.I.S.S. rule (Keep It Simple Scotty!) Or an favorite second "S" word that's not a swear 🥰🥰🥰
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Everything except heavy metal but only because nobody has offered. I'll work with anyone, anytime and anywhere.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Interpersonal and communication skills. Also letting the artist's be themselves and keep their voice and style in tact.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Everything except singing because nobody wants that! 😂😂😂 I bring a fresh set of ears and Eye's to every song, also being bilingual and having lived in multiple continents so the ability to blend different musical genres together.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work with an idea first and go from there... It can be an track based around an Acapella or an snare and clap for a drumline and go from there
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I'm mobile focused so lot's of my music gets done with a laptop, smartphone and tablet hooked up to an MIDI controller or a Yenti Mic unless I'm inside a proper studio then connecting to their native set-up.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Everyone from Quincy Jones to modern day maestros like Porter Robinson and Madeon too. I'm a huge fan of Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Justice, Dr. Luke, Deadmau5, and plenty more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm a literal Swiss Army Producer... I'll match the vibe of the music with the Artist's vision and vocals.
