Interview with Jim Wes
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I cowrite with the artist, then produce the song top to bottom. Kind of a one-stop-shop for singles!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The greats to me are: Dre, Pharrell, Kanye, Timbo, Max Martin, Dr. Luke ..etc.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am endorsed by Microtech Geffell so my main vocal mic is the M930 Ts. Universal audio 610 for my main pre. And then the apogee duet for the a/d. 1 large live room for drums, percussion, and auxiliary, iso booths for guitars. My DAW is Logic.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I find it more streamline to topline to a near finished track, so I usually start there. After the topline, I layer in all live instruments.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I literally bring everything I can to a song so that it can accomplish its goal. If the song is to be the most commercial, I make sure the hook is right the mix is right the drop is right the lifts are right. If the song is meant to be an album cut, I maximize the cool factor and make sure its as cool as possible.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Streamlined organization.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Currently, hiphop/pop.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is always more!
