Interview with Adam Lewis Mixing
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Mac, a set of decent monitors and any half decent interface, and I can work!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I began my musical journey at the age of 9, some 25 years ago. I would write and record Hip-Hop music at home with my older brother. I learnt how to produce beats and would record over them using a 4-track tape recorder and a hand held microphone. Over the years, my love for music creation grew, and with the aid of advancements in digital recording in the early 2000s, I took to producing and recording with friends and local talent in and around my hometown. Before long people started to ask to come and record with me in my home studio, even offering to pay! Taken aback but happy with the newfound exposure, I focussed my efforts and built up a small client base. This would eventually lead to the opening of 'Yard26 Recordings', a commercial studio catering for Urban acts. During my time at Yard26, I recorded, mixed and mastered thousands of songs for local rappers, singers and producers, many of which were aired on radio and TV. Following the local success of 'Yard26 Recordings', my aim for this service is to bring the same elements which led to the popularity of Yard26 to the world. In this day and age, particularly in Urban genres, home and project studios have become the norm and for independent artists on small budgets they make perfect sense - you get to record your music in the comfort of your own space without the restrictions of costly studio time and more often than not, an engineer who may not understand your vision. Where this way of working often falls down is in the mixing and mastering stage. If you are an artist recording yourself, or you have a friend helping out, you may not have the time, patience or skills to take your song to the next level. This is where my service comes in - simply send over your files and have your songs mixed to an industry standard level by a knowledgeable and experienced engineer who understands your genre and has the skills to take your music from rough to ready.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Performance is everything. Feel the music, and let it guide the performance. It makes my life easier, but it also means I can get more out of the mixing process and deliver a better finished product!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly Hip-Hop, whether that's old school/90s inspired boom-bap or modern Trap & Drill. A lot of R&B, as well as some Dancehall and Reggae. I have also worked with House, EDM and Drum and Bass producers.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: t's not enough for me to just balance the elements of your song, smooth things out and send it back to you. Rather, it is my job to use my taste and experience to add something - some spice, some flavour, some feeling. Whether this is achieved through creative effects such as echos or filters. Or by cutting, chopping and rearranging elements in the song, I will do what's necessary to create the best possible version of your song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: It is crucial for an engineer to have a deep knowledge and understanding of your genre. Not only in terms of how it is supposed to sound, but also the history and cultural relevance of it. Having been involved in Hip-Hop and the arts for over 20 years, I feel this better equips me to make the hundreds of important decisions necessary when working with your music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in the box, in a cosy purpose built and acoustically tuned studio space. I have a high end monitoring system consisting of a pair of Neumann KH310s and PSI A17-Ms. I mostly use Logic Pro, with a wide range of plug-ins including Slate, Waves, Soundtoys and FabFilter.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the time I am mixing and mastering songs sent online by my clients. I also do some editing work for podcasters and video content creators.
