Interview with Apollo
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
My first single: Cheat Codes ft. Demi Lovato - No Promises (Apollo Remix). It truly defined my style, and I had a lot of fun creating it.The goal was to created the most beautiful piece that I possibly could.
What are you working on at the moment?
My own works, but I have enough time to work with other musicians :).
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
New to the site at the moment, but I would recommend a guy named Apollo.
Analog or digital and why?
Digital, but soon analog. Currently don't have the necessary funds.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
To give you my best and give you EXACTLY what you want.
What do you like most about your job?
Working with clients to make beautiful music, and most of all just having fun!
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
"collab, bro?" Answer: Of course! :)
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That the creative aspect doesn't matter.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
- What are you looking for in this certain mix/beat? - Do you have a strict deadline? - Do you have any questions about my process?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Experience and Results over gear.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
My computer, DAW, Monitors, Vape, and pizza, so I can make beautiful melodies for the Island Gods.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
Going on 7 years now. Started with only a computer! No room treatment, no studio monitors, no sub, nothing. Now I am here, on this site :P.
How would you describe your style?
Melodic and the definition of "me".
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Anyone! :) We're all musicians here.
Can you share one music production tip?
Do NOT follow ANY mixing textbook, tutorial or podcast straightforward. Mixing is not an "exact science". It ultimately depends on YOU. Just do whatever YOU feel sounds good.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I can do all genres, but I mostly do Hip-Hop, Pop, and EDM
What's your strongest skill?
Giving my clients EXACTLY what they want.
What do you bring to a song?
The best possible outcome that stems from 7 years experience and an acoustic studio design.
What's your typical work process?
The first step involves speaking with the client and getting as much detail as possible about what the client wants. Second, the client pays the necessary funds upfront so that I can start working. Third, I work on the song! The time it takes for the process to complete ultimately depends on the song complexity, the specifications of the client, and my own schedule, but you can expect your finished product in at the very most, 1 WEEK. Fourth,and lastly, if you have any concerns about your finished product, or you don't like the way it turned out, you can contact me and let me know. I will do a complete revision (in your favor) for FREE. No "revision charge", nothing.

Mixing work for all genres of music, and production work for hip-hop (beat making).
