Interview with Mixed By Tobiah
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first single of 2020 titled 'Talk Nice'. I am proud of it because it was something I worked on from start to finish entirely by myself; no outside help whatsoever and it was selected for an official apple music playlist with little to no promotion.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My own upcoming EP A collaborative EP consisiting of various alternative afrofusion Artists for a producer halfway across the world
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet. I am new to the platform
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital; simply because of the software era I grew up in. Ironic however because I find myself investing in software that tries to capture and imitate that analog feeling.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To put my heart and soul into their project
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The ability to create
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much I charge. My response is that it varies with the nature of the project.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That my skills aren't useful/transferable in the real. Which is ironic because if you look around you all you will see is art. This world is nothing without creatives.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1. Their inspiration behind the project in question, 2. The creative direction for the project, 3. The theme (if any) 4. What they want to achieve out of the project
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be open and honest about what you want and what you hope to achieve
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop My Microphone My interface My headphones and most importantly; my brain
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a Producer when I was 16 but shortly after discovered my love for writing songs as well and thus began my musical journey as a singer/songwriter and Producer. I have been doing this for around 10 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My sound is known as 'Afrochill'. Afrochill is a style/sub-genre, birthed from the Fusion of Afrobeats and Alternative modern R&B as these are my two major influences in music. It is chilled, smooth but also both vibrant and dark. Through my songs I like to have open, honest discussions about the vulnerabilities of love and lust, the importance of self-love and staying true to one's self.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: The Weeknd, because his 2011 House Of Balloons Mixtape gave me clarity and direction. I heard it for the first time and suddenly had a sense of purpose with what I wanted to do with my sound and how I wanted to make people feel.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Understand the basic fundamentals of the genre you're involved in, before you start creating. Even if you're bending genres and creating hybrids; you still need to know the rules so that you know how to break those rules correctly and creatively.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: -Afrochill (which is my own signature sound) -Afrobeats, Afrofusion - R&B -Hiphop, Trap -UK Rap, Grime, Drill
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ability to pivot. I adapt to the situation. I like to be fluid because I think fluidity is necessary when you're stuck and you need to change course or pivot in order to overcome all obstacles; both in the creative industry and generally in life.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My authenticity and diversity of thought. Diversity in the sense that I am a singer/songwriter, beatmaker and mixing engineer so having me on your song is like having 3 extra brains working on your song to produce the best results.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Before starting a project I make a checklist of things that need to be achieved in the final project and I analyse the best way to go about achieving them. This prevents me from straying away from the original idea/goal of the project.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I hire a professional studio space such as pirate studios when I need to work on my projects.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The Weeknd Kanye West Burna boy Wizkid
