Interview with XMEAN360
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I look to myself as inspiration. I am my own man with my own style. My only inspiration is to grow and be better than I was the day before.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I am working on making a new song, I typically like to start with the beat, or instrumentals first. The beat dictates the flow of my lyrics. Once I have a feel for the beat, I start to freestyle lyrics. The hook needs to be catchy. After I record the main vocals, I go back in and record background vocals and ad libs. Then I mix it down to audio perfection to create a great song.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring passion and creativity to every song I produce. I have a lot of life experience, and draw from that to write my songs. I pay attention to the musical composition, and the over all "feel" I want for my song. The music determines my flow. What my lyrics say is just as important as HOW they are being delivered. I want my listeners to really connect to my songs.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on Hip Hop and Rap songs. I have experience though producing music for other genres as well. I have worked with R&B, Reggae, Soul, Gospel, EDM, House, and Rock. I can work with just about any genre of music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: My biggest production tip would be to master your musical genre, but have an open mind to experiment with other styles of music. As an artist, I love it when I am given opportunities to create music in other genres. It keeps me creative, and I love a challenge. I feel like it also enhances my own music, because then I can incorporate new styles into my tracks and deliver something unique to my supporters.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: This is what I am working with in my home studio. -Computer -DAW -Audio Interface -Microphones -Headphones -Studio Monitors -Cables -Microphone Stands -Pop Filter
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: If given the opportunity, I would love to work with "Rocko". I admire his work.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my musical style as smooth hip hop.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been writing, producing, and performing music for over 10 years. It is my passion. I love the story telling aspect, and the complete creative freedom I have when making new music. My goal was to produce music that touches people, that tells a story, and most importantly that makes an impact.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If I was stranded on a desert island and I could only have 5 pieces of gear, I would have a knife, a source for fire (like matches or a lighter), a rope, a tent, and a lot of drinking water.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How will this song be used? Do you want explicit lyrics? Do you have specific phrases that you want used in your song? What is the time frame?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise my clients a product that they are pleased with. I offer revisions if they are not happy, until I produce a song that they are happy and proud of.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I am working on a new mix tape for my rap group "UNO". Uno stands for "Under No Obstacles". We are writing and recording tracks to feature on the mix tape. I also have a few live performances coming up. I am also working with an established author to turn one of her novels into a theater production, and I am helping her write the music for her characters to perform.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If a customer is looking to hire me as a musical provider, they are guaranteed to be happy with the final product. I take good care to meet all the requirement of my clients. I go above and beyond for my clients. My advice would be to be as clear as possible in your vision for your song, so I can create it for you. I have so many repeat clients for a reason. It's because the tracks I produce for them are hits.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for my clients is Ghost Writer. They hire me to write their songs. I use catchy hooks and creative word play.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to come up with catchy memorable hooks, and creative word play in my verses. I also have a very deep, distinctive, authoritative voice. So for certain tracks that are looking to add a WOW factor, they hire me.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love my job. I love the creativity writing allows me to express. I like being able to switch up my styles based on my mood and the way the music speaks to me. I can go smooth and slow with an R&B twist, or I can switch it up and be rough and angry with my lyrics. It all depends on the beat I am working with.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I have had the pleasure of collaborating with many talented artists here on SoundBetter.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do is people think it’s easy to write a song. Some songs are inspired right away by the beat or the story I want to tell. But sometimes I get writers block and it takes a little longer to be inspired. It’s definitely harder than it looks.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Sometimes my customers have a certain sound in mind that they want to mimic. Some come to me and want me to rap like a certain artist. I tell them each artist is unique and has their own style. It’s impossible to mimic another artist perfectly. The best results come from me being authentic.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently completed recording for a song that’s going to be used as the soundtrack for a popular show over seas. I collaborated with the composer and wrote the lyrics to the theme song
