Interview with Tyler Stone
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The bulk of my work and what I’m known best for is remixing. As a vocalist myself, I really enjoy working with the vocals of a song and finding a new interpretation of the original. I may chop them up or keep them intact or more often, a little of both. Sometimes it’s just a matter of bumping’ up the beat and sometimes a whole new chord structure is developed. I always let the song lead me to the direction I'll take.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For remixes, I start by listening to the original song and form an idea of the direction I want to go. I always start with the kick, build the drums and start placing the vocals. I then start to layer in chords and soundscapes and finally crashes and breaks. Original production is very much the same, only, I don't always have the vocals to work with right away.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I look for the song within the song and bring all it’s best elements forward.
