Interview with Kyle "Suave" Hudson
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently I made a beat, mixed, and mastered a track all for a friend back home who I hadn't worked with in a while. I was especially proud because I could tell working with him again I realized just how far I had come and how much progress my years of constant grind led me to
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working with a lot of independent artists and doing mostly mixes and masters
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: BOTH! Each one is great in so many different ways and using a combination of both really gives us the freedom as engineers to create whatever it is we want to create.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that no matter how long it takes or how many revisions you need I will not stop until you get the product you want.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I love most about my job is when I can sit back and do a last final check of my mix and just sit back and head bob with a great sense of satisfaction that yes, I did just do that.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: What I do is something that just anyone can do. To be great engineer and producer takes long long sleepless nights filled with work, a brain that refuses to shut down until you are done, and the ability to think outside of the box
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The main thing I will ask for is to find and send reference tracks! There is nothing greater to tell me what you're looking for than to let me hear it.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Stay involved throughout every step of the process, ask questions and don't be scared make criticisms. The more involved you are the more your track will sound the way you want it to sound.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Easy, Neve Genesys Black, Adam Audio Monitors, My set of UltraSone Pro 850 I's, Nuemann U87, and my jelly fish lamp. Its not a lot but it's enough for me :)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started making music ever since I was 14, At that age I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and GAD, Making and working with music is what kept me going in life. Ever since then I made the Jump and moved to NYC after school to pursue this career 100% in no looking back. I have been working as a Mix Engineer and Producer for 5 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would say I am an engineer who's main focus is to always make sure my music is flourishing with life and energy.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to one day work with Jack Johnson. He is one of the most chill guys on this planet and to get to work with him would be an absolute privilege.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Experiment with adding elements of different genres of music to your production. Some of the greatest songs of all time implement different flavors of other music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: For the most part Hip Hop, but I am willing and ready to branch out into anything you need.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I feel my strongest skill is being able to work with others and create the exact same vibe and atmosphere my clients want.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a well trained set of ears and a great thinking outside of the box mentality. I'm willing to break the "rules".
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I begin by cleaning everything up, get a dry mix and get all of the levels where I want them to be, after that I do whatever is requested or whatever I feel the song needs. I like to think of mixing as an artform where as each project should be looked at and cared for individually.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Right now I have my bedroom setup I am working with now equipped with an acoustically treated room, one beast of a custom built PC, an Apollo Twin and a beautiful set of Adam Audio T8V's.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Sylvia Massey is an engineer who inspires my creativity greatly! My top favorite musicians of all time are Marliyn Manson, Tom Misch, The Beatles, Tool, XXXTENTACION, and Jack Johnson.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly specialize in Hip Hop and RnB, but I love all genres of music and I am willing to take on any kind of project
