Interview with Youri
What are you working on at the moment?
I have a few longterm jobs as a ghostproducer for a couple of DJ's. All other clients just hire me through wesbites just like this one.
Analog or digital and why?
Both. But analog is just still not as good as digital ;)
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
You'll be satisfied.
What do you like most about your job?
It's making music all day. What's there not to like?
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
One of the first questions is probably if there is a deadline or not.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Don't worry if I can do it or not because I can.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Probably just a guitar, it's actually the only thing I need to make music.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
Started playing bass when I was 15, studied bass, piano and musicproduction 'till I was 22 and started a studio 10 years ago.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Popmusic or electronic dance music
What's your strongest skill?
People say that I'm very professional, creative and organised.
What do you bring to a song?
Everything it needs.
What's your typical work process?
If I get a vocal demo delivered I work with that. If not I start from scratch and send an early demo to the client to get approval.
