Rayne Always has quick turn around time, Handles business professionally and is easy to work with. He has some of the most proffesional quality work around, Smooth beats and a clean sound.
Rayne always is quick to produce professional sound that few guys can do in minimal time, always professional about his work and relationship with the client. He's my first recommendation for great beats and a fun environment to work in.
Rayne is the man.
Easy to work with, very professional and always comes through with an amazing final product. Since the first beat i bought off him hes been nothing but helpful. I can always rely on him to have a quick turnaround, dope beats, and a clean mix !!!
Rayne Supreme > whoever you use.
My group has two members currently working on solo projects with Rayne. He is always quick to get back to the artist with a completed mix and will keep in touch to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the final product.
His beats and quality are only rivaled by his professionalism. Definitely a hidden gem in Western Canada.
Super professional to deal with. I've worked with Rayne for a project and will keep working with him going ahead. Turn around time perfect and prompt. He takes the time to work with the artist and find out what they are looking for and does a great job of fitting there needs. Production quality is really above and beyond expectations.
Such a professional experience working with Rayne. Turn around time for mixing surpassed any and all expectations I had. Quality beats and mixes at affordable rates! I would highly recommend Working with Rayne Supreme on any service they have to offer.
I've used Rayne in a mixing and mastering capacity on 3 of my singles.
Jason was professional, prompt and was exceedingly easy to work with.
I am amazed at how fast his turn around time is.
He is one of my favourite mixing and mastering engineers in Canada.
You'd be smart to work with him.
Interview with Rayne Supreme
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Rayne Drop presents: The Definition. An album where Definition came from Barrie, Ont. to Prince Albert, SK. We made all the beats on the spot, wrote and recorded his verses in 7 days. It turned out amazing and was a true test of what I can do. I could have hit a beat block and wasted an entire week.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My sophomore album, Phantom Of The Chopera 2. A compilation album of some of my favourite artists over top my beats.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. You can get plug ins that are replicas of analog equipment. it's not the same but you can take those ANYWHERE.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Variety in music, getting to hear the songs before they're released.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Will you work for exposure? No!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's hard and takes days to complete a mix.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you looking to get out of the song? What are your aspirations? Is there anything you've read here that may concern you?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Do your research. You often get what you pay for. If you pay for a $10 mix chances are it's going to sound like a $10 mix.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A stack of vinyl, my macbook pro, and the maschine and I'm set.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started taking production serious in 2009. Anything prior to that was just fooling around throughout high school.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Present era boom bap with a beat of cleanliness
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Pusha T or Wale. They both destroy every beat they end up on.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Beyond a certain point, don't pay attention to the numbers you see on the screen or on the dials, If it sounds good to you, chances are it will sound good elsewhere, Always reference your mixes on multiple systems and don't be afraid to take risks and step outside the box.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop music always seems to find it's way back to me. I've worked with some amazing pop and afro pop artists.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I've been producing records for the longest so that would be the strongest, my mixing and mastering skills are on par with those as well. As a producer I think it's great to have mastered both of those elements as part of my craft. not to mention I won an award for my album production
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Experience. I've been in and out of studios since I was 13 years old. You pick up a thing or two along the way. Energy, production knowledge. If my name is attached to anything I want the outcome to look amazing for the both of us.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If we're talking beats I'll typically find the sound, sample or melody I want to base the instrumental around and go from there. Lay a basic drum pattern down, fill out the chops, add some additional ambience and complete the mixing process later that week. Mixing is a bit different, I'll start with cleaning up the vocals, solo them and get them sounding nice and clean, bring the instruments back in and adjust the EQ on the individual tracks so everything fits where it's supposed to and the vocals are front and center
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: We run an Advanced Audio CM47 Tube Microphone in a treated room into Logic Pro X, post production includes multiple plug ins from the Waves Bundle, SSL EQ and Compressors, API's, Sound Imaging.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Just Blaze, Kanye West and J Dilla have always been huge inspirations as far as the production sides of things go.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Commonly mixing and mastering or beat production. I often have clients come to me with a song they want sampled a certain way and we can take that file they send us and turn it into exactly what they want.
