Interview with Rayza

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I once worked on a party jam. And why I loved it was because I got to really play around with vocals. It's a dance hall, so I'm sure anyone partying to the song would be thrilled.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Nothing for now.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not yet

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Partly analogue and partly digital. I want to be good at both.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I promise to deliver the best I can to them.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: It helps me bring out my creative self, especially as an introvert. It's one thing that sends me reading and studying.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Most times when they here works from guys like Chris Breezy, Trey Songs et al, they're like, "when am I gonna start sounding like that"? I just tell them to practice and do some understudy. Rehearse, because the perfection of a song doesn't lie solely on the mix engineer/ producer, artistes much be at their best.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: People think production/mixing is an easy stuff. That's why there's a lot of underpriced and under appreciated producers/mix engineer out there.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I ask them to which level they want the song to reach because it's their vision that I work with.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: I'd say be at your best. A producer is usually powerless if the artist doesn't bring his/her "A" game

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My laptop, a microphone, a soundcard, my studio monitors, a power generator set with a large fuel reserve. That's all.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I started producing beats underground since 2011 but start professionally in 2015.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I'd say emotional, not too wild, dedicated, soulful and spiritual. I like to get immersive in songs.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I've got many. But I'll like to work with Da' Truth

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: When working on a song, treat it as if it's you would yourself. Every song needs to be handled delicately. Good jobs are easily admired. Good jobs sell your image.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: I mostly work on hip hop tracks, and Nigerian dance hall(because of the environment). But I'm basically a Rap guy.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is my ability to listen. Listening helps me visualize myself in the head of the artist, understanding what his/her state of mind is,trying to bring to life their imaginations.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I like to approach every song with the highest form of professionalism. But most of all, I approach every song with passion because I believe my mixes should help the audience feel the story of the artist. I try to take my time to make a masterpiece of every job I handle.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I listen to the song's raw format, Discuss how to approach the song with the artist, Create an instrumental and let the artist listen and make changes, After days of rehearsals, I record the artist, giving suggestions where necessary, After the recording, I leave a space of 5 days before mixing so as to clear my head and approach the song from a fresh perspective. On the day of mixing, I'd listen to different top songs, hear the mixes before I proceed with mine. I spent lots of time mixing because I want the best. During the mixing I could call the artist back to correct certain errors. After mixing, I do a mock mastering of the song. This helps me Identify places I need to work on. If there's no error, I redo the mastering, this time to perfection. I do my beats on FL Studio, while my recording, mixing and mastering is on Pro Tools.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: Currently I work for an organisation. I'm looking to start up when things fall in place. I work in a simple in house studio.
