Q: What's your typical work process?
A: first I like to find out the style the client is going for, seeing their influences and sounds and production styles from other artists/ producers that they like, then I proceed with keeping the reference in mind but never completely relying on that. Making a difference that will showcase what the artist wants to say after I have a main mix, I'll send that to the client to ensure I'm on the right track, and to see if there is anything major that they want changed. After that I start to tweak things and make the mix as perfect as I can get it. Sending the final mix to the client, then mastering after the go ahead is given, then hand it over
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a sense of ownership and pride, knowing that it's not just mixing a song, this is my work, my mark on someone else's dream, so I take pride in the end result whether it's $50 for the mix or $800 for the mix. You've asked me to work on something that you have created through you blood sweat and tears, and I don't take that responsibility lightly
