Interview with S€RA
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Anything I do. You've gotta be proud of it all, the good and the bad, because that's the only way you learn and pick up new skills.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Trying to make my own instrumental album, showcasing the strenghts that I can bring. I am hopefully going to promote this and see what other credits I can add to my currently very short list.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Hard work.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Personally don't see it as a job to behnest, but what I love about it is the creative side, and the fact that I have an input into all of it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Would you be interested in working with me in the future in further projects?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Patience. I feel like most customers, expect the hit. I feel like they have to realise that they too have a part to play in it and I benefit from that quite a lot, so yes, I try my best and you try your best too!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Don't really have one.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: A$AP Rocky. I'm a huge fan, I'd like to know what goes on in his head! He's great. Nekfeu, Sneazzy, Hugz Hefner. I'd love to know how I could work with people from different cultures and language.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Go with your instict, if something doesn't feel/sound right,at the end of the day it's your call, you'll be punished for what you missed out and what you "wished" you could've done better.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rap, Trap Hip-Hop and in some ways World.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I'm working by myself, I normally just sit down, listen to a few tracks and start laying beats for hours on end. If I have enought ime, daily I try to hit about north 5 beats. With clients? I first ask whether they just want me to get on with it and see what I come up with or tailor the beat around someone specific. If it's the latter, I try to tailor the beat that they request around their needs. I instantly go check out the artist that they ask and try to incorporate their sound into the beat where I can.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a simple studio setup as of now, with speakers, MIDI keyboard, a laptop, desktop computer and a mic!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Mainly commercial type of artists and producers such as: Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Drake, French Montana, Zaytoven, MasterKraft, WizKid, YoungJohn. Outside of those, I'd say I am a huge fan of Hugz Hefner who has worked tightly with Nekfeu and Sneazzy and pretty much the whole of 1995, Maleek Berry, who is in my opinion up and coming too, Sarz,
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly undertake beat making services. I
