Interview with Qliche
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first EP was awesome! It took a lot of time and I mixed and mastered all myself!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My Alternative rock/hyper pop EP <3
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: https://soundbetter.com/profiles/37515-iszy Shes awesome female singer!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital just because thats what I use now. However, Id have no trouble with analog since I use those plugins!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: YOU WILL ALWAYS GET MY BEST WORKS AND I WILL MAKE SOMETHING YOUD LOVE!! 1000%
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to collaborate with other people. Seeing a vision come true is the greatest feeling.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: 1. What's the fastest turn around for the song? 3-5 days 2. Do you use auto tune? well yes, 96% of the industry does 3. You do this all from home? yes!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: 1. I cant sound EXACTLY like your favorite artist just because I know how to mix 2. I dont make beats I only sing over them
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to ask what kind of vibe ( what kind of lyrics too) do they want with this song. Usually I can tell just from the beat but I have to make sure.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My only advice would be not afraid to make revisions and tell them 100% how you feel. Sometimes what we might think we created is nice, you might not like it, and THATS okay. Music is subjective. What's important is working TOGETHER to make something you BOTH are happy with but more importantly for me the customer comes first. If you aren't happy I'm not either.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: *no specific order and if there's internet* 1.Cellphone 2. Music equipment 3. Computer 4. Camera 5. tape measure
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I never thought Id try to make a career in music. I graduated from college with an Astrophysics degree so....I've been playing music (piano, drums, guitar, band, ect) all my life. It wasn't until 2016 when I first dove into production. In 2019 I started to release and mix my own stuff. Ive been doing this for 5 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like to tell people I do melodic rap. Its very "singy" and melodic. Higher pitched angelic sounding. Mostly on the emo/sad boy sad of genres.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Well if we are talking more main stream id say like Kid Laroi or Khalid just because I feel like wed sound great together in a nice melodic song. But ultimately I love Dua Lipa's work and would love to hop on the top type of genres she does! If its underground artists Id like to work with Glaive or any hyper pop artists. They are so creative with the beat selections and creative vocal chops.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I like to tell people if they are mixing vocals for the first time and doing more of a pop song that you need more than just one layer of vocals. Do one take with just normal vocals. Another take with a higher harmonic. And then another layer thats lower octave. The more layers the better and more stereo you can get with them.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It varies. Mostly Hip-hop and rap. But I've been experimenting with alternative rock and hyper pop. I think my voice can fit on a lot of genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would be my clean mixing and background harmonies. Many describe it as angelic.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe I bring distinctive melodic energy and lyrical enthusiasm. I like to be creative depending on the topic at hand.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually find a beat I like. Once I do, I start to hum melodies I think would fit well. Next I enter the freestyle process where I try different flows with the melodies and also create new melodies. This process is the fun part for me because even though certain sentences or words might not make sense, I get to just have fun and say whatever comes to mind. Next I split my takes into parts. I usually start from the beginning of the song and freestyle the verse and chorus as much as I can. The I go back and fill those empty spaces with words. I ALWAYS ADD LAYERS (BG harmonies) to my songs so thats the next step after my main vocals are put down. Lastly Ill add small effects and adjust.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work with two monitors. My beefy PC runs most of the operation. I have a mic stand with a pop filter or if I'm lazy I just use my boom arm. As weird as it sounds, depending on the genre of music I am doing, I either stand or sit down for my takes.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Juice Wrld was a HUGE part of my music life. I found him very inspirational and unique. He was an artist that wasn't afraid to show his emotional side to the world. I wanted to do the same.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Features. People always ask me to hop on their tracks. I can do many styles so I have a broad audience. But occasionally I do some basic mixes.
