Primarily an artist, with a strong proficiency in production, writing, recording, and mixing. Also the founder of DMR (Digital Mobile Recording), which is a method of recording music in cars.
Production: I specialize in Hip-hop and R&B production, and have dabbled in EDM. With over 15 years of production experience, I am confident that I can provide tons of value and knowledge to every artist I work with. Not only do I make beats, I also produce full songs around vocals as well.
Writing: I focus mainly on Hip-hop, R&B, and EDM. When it comes to Hip-hop, I have clever wordplay and catchy hooks/bridges. With R&B, emotion is everything to me; translating the feeling and soul to the audience is key. Although I only dabble in the production side, the world of EDM has received me very well. I have written for a few other producers, and have gotten placements on Dim Mak and Night Bass.
Recording: Self taught in the realm of digital recording, and taught by Andy Seagle in analog recording. In the summer of 2019, I figured out a way to start recording in cars, and in turn created the method DMR. Everything I make as an artist currently is done through DMR.
Mixing: Self taught over the last 10 years, I mix everything in the box. Including myself and other artists, I have mixed over 500 songs, learning and growing with each project. My workflow is efficient, allowing me to offer quick turnaround times without sacrificing quality and the artist's vision.

Interview with Way
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Distinct, versatile, bouncy, smooth, thought provoking, wavy, etc.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Kanye West because he is a huge inspiration to me. He has always pushed the envelope, and isn't scared to get out of his comfort zone with intentions to innovate. One day it will happen, and whatever we collaborate on will be iconic.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can produce, write, record, and mix/master a song from scratch. I can provide those same skills to any artist, producer, or engineer that needs them. I also bring passion, rhythm, and a unique style to every song I am apart, setting me apart from everyone else.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The best production tip I can give you is learn and master Equalization and Compression. Those two things will change how anything sounds.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Hip-Hop, R&B, and EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: All of my skills are top tier, but I am most experienced in songwriting/performing, since that's where I first got my start. I have a distinct voice, flow, and charisma that brings any track I touch to life.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: While I do have certain workflows that I usually use, creativity allows my to go outside of the box when it comes to how I use my workflows. For production, I have certain principles that I follow to ensure quality and sonics, but I always approach every song like it is a fingerprint. I can either produce first then make the song to the production, or produce around vocals. I love to experiment and try different things! For recording, I usually like to have markers to organize the structure of the song. I keep the pre-amp at an optimal level for a clean, non-clipped, vocals. The acoustics are very important, so I like to make sure I have isolation shields and good mic placement. The energy is vital as well, so making sure whoever behind the mic is comfortable and in a good mood is one of my main focal points. I have a mental checklist when it comes to mixing. I can either mix vocals into instrumentals or do trackout mixes. The trackout mixes provide the best results because the stems allow me to be more precise and controlled.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is my laptop, interface, microphone, and my car. I make music through a process called DMR, which stands for Digital Mobile Recording. Through this set up, I can make music on the go, and record pretty much anywhere!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by people like Kanye West, Rick Rubin, and Pharrell. I take inspiration from the passion, vision, drive of the innovators of the world.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: For artists, I usually provide recording and mixing services. My workflow and recording process is very clean and professional, and my mixing process is to the same standard. I usually recommend that artists record with me to ensure the best results for their mixing needs, but it is not required.
