Interview with Miles Jacobs

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: I always been working digital until a couple of months ago so I would say digital. But since I came in touch with analog and heard the sound of it, I would love to combine it with my workflow. I would say analog is more fun.

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: Some people think I locked myself up on the loft of my parents and just do music, but it's not 'just' music. I am my own company, my own boss, as every independent artists or producer is. Being busy with music 24/7 to expand your skills, knowledge and not getting paid. so what I'm trying to say with this: The biggest misconception people make about not only what I do, but what we as musicians do is the hard work and dedication we put in this.

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: well if there is a powersource on that desert Island , these days you can do everything with a laptop... so, just my laptop,Apollo and my Genelecs will do it for me.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: I love to do R&B music the most, but I don't mind to be involved in any other kind of sound.

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

  10. A: A couple of months ago I did a studiosession with two Incredibly talented artists/producers, we did a song together that I produced and mixed. For me it would be the very first song on my name if we're gonna release it, so I'm really excited about it because it sounds really amazing.

  11. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  12. A: Quality above quantity.

  13. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  14. A: Your never out-learning music. everyday you can learn something new and it's infinite.

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  16. A: Sometimes it's even hard to believe myself it's been 10 years that I started with music. I started when I was 8 as a DJ until I was around 11 and then started to make my own techno music in Ableton. I realized techno wasn't it for me no more when a friend of mine showed me the album 'Nothing Was The Same' by Drake,I was sold. I kept on going with experimenting making hip-hop music and from that moment I started to discover artists I mentioned earlier like D'angelo, Pharrel Etc... But I didn't stop DJ'ing techno music. From that moment I had some amazing milestones like my own event called 075TechnoLab, Hemelsbreed & Young art festival.. It was a local techno rave with around the 1000 visitors, we did two events in one year, both succeeded. I did a DJ gig on Hemelsbreed And Young art Festival for 2500 people each, when I was like 16 years old.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Smooth.

  19. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  20. A: Too many... If I have to name the big names that inspires me, it will definitely be Pharrel williams, Quincy Jones, D'angelo and let me say Slum Village for now.

  21. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  22. A: Let your feeling do the work, don't force making music... Music is nothing more than a feeling.

  23. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  24. A: My own unique earcandy, my perspective on how I think music should sound like.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: A couple of years ago I invested in some studio gear. I bought 1 pair of the amazing genelec 8331 AP's & Adam A77X monitors, with a Apollo UAD twin.

  27. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  28. A: I listen a lot of D'angelo, Raphael Saadiq kind of music, because of the organic sound and feeling that they put into the songs.
