Interview with FeedTheStudios
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Nowadays there's no huge difference. It's more of "what flavor do you want".
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I'll TRY as much as I can to deliver what you deserve and need
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: To be able to discover wonderful music and be able to help the creator achieve a product they deserve.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: How can I do what you did myself? A: Years of practice and study
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I will magically make bad arrangements or songs sound like a million bucks. Feces go in, feces go out.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Where do you want to go with the track? What are your references? Who do you wanna sound like? Any special requests?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have your talent or yourself do the best work they can while recording. Arrange as best as you can before sending it to mixing. Do your rough mix, strip ALL processing and panning, then send. Don't keep stereo versions of mono sources, that's just poor management.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Headphones, so I don't have to build a shack. A pair of UREI 1176 black-face. Distressor. Tape machine. SSL console.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started learning producing since age 13-14, then I have been working with local bands, projects and by myself trying to hone my skills. I started out as a drummer, then I got attracted by the more technical aspect of music. That led me to mixing so around age 19 I started learning mixing theory and buying better equipment.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Aggresive. I work really hands on. I tend to do a lot of tweaks and fixes here and there at the same time in an impulsive manner to try and put down the sound I have in my head. Then I work in a more systematic way trying to land the previous tweaks I've made to give the song a professional sound.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: deadmau5, his tracks are one of the best produced and mixed tracks in the whole EDM scene. Also I'd love to work with alternative artists like Ratatat, Tame Impala, Foo Fighters, Alabama Shakes, etc...
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Singer-songwriter, hip-hop, alternative rock
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Technical and musical understanding of various instruments and gear allowing me to treat them the right way with the right tools.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I approach the mix blind, let my instincts guide me so I don't smear the vibe the song already has. After my static mix is done I, then, listen to the rough and reference. Then try to stabilize the mix, do my automation and export.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pair of Yamaha's Hs8, my room has been designed by Stuart Allsop and is being rebuilt to match standards.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dave Pensado, Chris Lord-Alge, deadmau5, Ratatat, Travis Barker, Daft Punk, Justice. In general these people have inspired me to polish the quality of the tracks I work on, not precisely inspired me to become a musician.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mix their material. I try to get their sound represented as well as I can in the mix.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Rebuilding studio.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Go with your gut. No tutorial or book will ever match the sense of direction your gut will give you while working
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to maximize the energy expressed by the song. Also I tend to be able to give each instrument its own space in the mix. Since I'm also a student architect, I tend to apply a lot of design theory to my tracks giving them that little extra that sets me apart of the rest.
