Interview with Daniel Melman
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first single track, Night Breeze, was recently released in May 2021. This was my first full production of an lofi jazz-hop instrumental. My goal was to make a simple, "chill" song to relax to. It was a ton of fun to make!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently cooking up a bumping reggaetón track with PB Guapo. Coming soon!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I am very focused (I will lay out a plan and execute it to the letter), but I am also very laid back and easy to talk to. I am easily accessible and will check-in regularly and often.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Finneas and Billie Eilish, because I believe we have similar musical sensitivities (in terms of using organic sounds, little sampling, etc).
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: A highly-critical ear, which holds my mixes to the highest industry standards. I can also communicate thoughts very clearly and efficiently.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have been classically trained in music theory and instrument performance since I was 3 years old. I bring my experience and musical sensitivity into every one of my productions. I specialize in harmonizing electronic sounds with live acoustic instruments (acoustic particularly guitar).
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: 1. [If making a beat] Record percussion/bass, then other instruments/sounds (piano, strings, woodwinds, ambience and vocals, in that order) 2. Mix/edit tracks (gain staging, volume balancing, trimming, comping, EQ, compression, FX, delay, reverb) 3. Master final mix 4. Revisions 5. Final master
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working with music is a privilege, plain and simple; helping artists realize their musical vision is such a fulfilling and rewarding experience.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Easy—laptop, midi keyboard, audio interface, guitar, headphones (AKA, my full equipment).
