Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I've always looked up to Dave Grohl! Man that guy just keeps going, I really admire someone that puts that much heart and soul into his career.
Can you share one music production tip?
If you get to focused and get frustrated walk away and take a brain break! It always helps to clear your mind and ears periodically.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Hip Hop and rock/metal, although I do love to work on any style of music! Bring on the Salsa rock pop jazz edm fusion.
What's your strongest skill?
Communication and being able to adapt my creative flow to help enhance someones song(s) to become what they envisioned it to be.
What do you bring to a song?
I feel I bring a second set of ears to the table. It really helps to have a great room that has been acoustically treated to hear the problems in a mix. I look at mastering as the final touch, sort of the cherry on top! I love being creative and its incredible rewarding bringing someones hard work together for the big finish.
What's your typical work process?
The most important thing to me is making my artists happy, after all its their song! I love when my clients give me creative input to feed off of.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I use a hybrid set up of analog and digital, best of both worlds I guess.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Oh where to start? That would be a long list! To start I really look up to Andrew Scheps, he has had some groundbreaking ideas about this art form. I really look up to anyone out there making waves and trying to experiment with new ideas and concepts.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
my most common work with clients is mastering. We'll have a conversation about their ideas on where the project is going and what end product they have in mind, then the magic happens.
