Interview with beatsbycarpp
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for the sound, digital for the workflow. But I'd say digital overall.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The fact that today I am creating something that wasn't there yesterday.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to find someone who you are really vibing with because it transcends in the music.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1. Laptop 2. Genelec monitors 3. SSL interface 4. Midi Keyboard 5. Loads of coffee
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started experimenting with Reason 4.0 back at the beginning of High School. I went to college to study audio engineering to become a mixing engineer, but later I discovered that beatmaking was really my thing.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Melancholic bounce.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: As much I would love to work with the biggest artists such as Drake, I think I'd even prefer to find an undiscovered gem artist and build his way up to the top.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Tune EVERYTHING! If an element of your track has a harmonic to it, tune it. It makes mixing so much easier afterward.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I like to think that my strongest asset is my work ethic. I actually feel guilty if I don't at least make 2 or 3 beats every day.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm a "less is more" type of guy! I try to create as much bounce and vibe with as little as possible. That's why I'm really focused on the often-overlooked details such as tuning, arrangement, editing, etc. The end result is clean and simple songs.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is really basic because I'm always on the move. At home, I'm working with my trusty Genelec monitors and SSL soundcard. But when I meet with a client to another location, I usually only bring my headphones and power up FL Studio, and make a song.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by hip-hop legends such as Pharrell, J Dilla, Metro Boomin, etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My bread and butter is beat licensing online through my website, but I also do some mixing jobs for clients, either online or in-house.
