Mix Engineer, Songwriter
Future Grammy Nominated Engineer.
I'm a self-taught school enhanced audio engineer with a passion for the feeling sounds create within you. I see music in a specific way that is kind of hard to explain, but I will attempt to explain because I think it is what sets my mixes apart from others. Imagine the ocean, big and vast, calm and steady. Cohesive with different moving currents, marine life, temperatures and land bodies with in it all creating one being. That's what I see when my monitors are playing music. The vocals I see like islands protruding out of the water and giving visible life to the complexity that is the water. The water breeds the life of music, the islands give the water distinct personality and direction, shaping the overall shape of the water.
That might sound weird or confusing, but when you put it in the perspective of the most beautiful bodies of water surrounding the most beautiful islands you've ever seen on google, that's the final product I create with my mixes. Hope to do business with you soon!

Interview with Lusaid Sounds
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: At this point in my career I'd love to work with everyone. I would love to just sit and watch on a Dr. Dre session or DJ Khaled session.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Mix with your eyes closed and ears open.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Like I stated before I typically get Hip-Hop or R&B songs. Ive done pop before as well but not on a scale professional enough to really say I have. I'm very open to doing all types of music. There just isn't a lot of that music needing to be mixed in my area.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill I would say is taste. Good taste is half the battle with music, execution is the other.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring connection to a song. Mixing wise, what I put on a song is what I would want to hear if I wasn't the one mixing it. What I would want to hear to inspire myself to mix something similar. I mix a song until it inspires me. That's when it is done.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the rough of the record and determine where the song needs to go. Once I listen to it I get a pretty vivid picture of where the sonics need to go to take the record to the next level. Then it's just a matter of me zoning out and putting my flavor on it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio set up based off my MacBook Pro 2015. Aka my 3rd arm. I work with Pro Tools 11 HD.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Lu Diaz and MixedbyAli are two engineers I am inspired by professionally. The engineers who have worked with Rae Sremmurd and Wiz Khalifa also inspire me when I listen to their work. All Soul and R&B records tend to inspire me with the mixing of harmonize and adlibs and how vocals sit in the pocket and drive home the feel of a record. Music in general inspires me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly do mixing for hip/hop and R&B tracks with non-tracked out instrumentals and pre-recorded vocals. I take the artist's vision and create a sonic representation of the songs emotion.
