Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would like to work with Andree 3000, because his lyrical abilities blow my mind. He also has a really earthy mix in his songs. He also gets many of his roots from rock music. Being able to work with an artist with so many characters would allow me to expand my mixing limits.
Can you share one music production tip?
Don't over process vocals. Work with a good amount of plugins and use them wisely. Sometimes over processing can create smother a mix.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I focus mostly on Trap, Rap, and Hip-hop due to my location. I am not limited to any one genre.
What's your strongest skill?
The ability to make a client happy with an end result they expected.
What do you bring to a song?
Creativity is the number one thing I bring to any song! Yet I still maintain a professional mix, that can compare to industry artists.
What's your typical work process?
Typically I like to first find out what the artists likes to listen to, and what they aim to sound like. Then I take the time to listen to the raw audio and think about what its going to need, rather than just over process it. I like to have a direction before I start working and then I execute it. After that I allow the artist too critic what I have done, and give me feedback on what they think should be done.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I have been building my studio from the ground up for 5+ years. Starting with a small Dell Laptop, moving to a Mac Book Pro. I use Krk Monitors to ensure I can hear every dynamic of the audio I am working on. Over the time I've added endless plugins from waves, fab-filter, to izotope!
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Currently, Alex Tumay gives me the most inspiration for what I'm working on.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I usually spend time tracking vocals for various artists. Although my time is mostly dispersed mixing songs for artists who come to the studio and or send me audio to work on via the internet.
