Interview with CALVIN of ONE:FIFTY
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, Uniqueness
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start the production with either a sample or self played piano/guitar. My strongest skill is sound design and flipping samples so I try to make something unique from the beginning. After that I build a rough structure with Drums/Bass. Before going into detail with the production I focus on creating vocals that fit the song while it's still fresh. When that's done I start looking at general arrangement, backings, additional instruments, rough mix, distinct sound design for each track, etc. From there on everything gets more and more specific until the track is ready for the final mix.
