Analog or digital and why?
Analog is great in many situations, but we choose to do all of our work in-the-box. The reason for this is that the current sound of EDM is a very digital sound. The majority of the biggest EDM artists aren't running their tracks through racks of analog gear, because they're not looking for that analog character. This is one of many reasons we've opted to stay digital as well.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started writing electronic music in 2012. After graduating from the University of Manitoba with an English degree, I continued my education at Icon Collective; a music production school, based out of Los Angeles, CA.
How would you describe your style?
Current. Jorel and I are two young guys who work within the industry as artists. We understand the most current EDM trends and we know how to help our clients achieve the sound they want.
Can you share one music production tip?
Less is more. I often get projects that are completely destroyed by over-processing. Make sure to go back and turn off your processing to make sure it's helping, and not hurting your track.
What type of music do you usually work on?
The music I've been working on lately is everything from trap bangers and dubstep tracks all the way to minimal house. It's really all over the place.
What's your strongest skill?
Mastering is the service that's being pushed the hardest right now, but after having attended school for music production at Icon Collective, I'm equipped to handle pretty much anything a client throws at me.
What's your typical work process?
Regardless of the project, my work process starts with listening. I'll listen to what I've been given and I'll listen to other music. I'll compare the two and make a plan of how to get from point A to point B.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
We made it really easy for clients to submit their music for mastering through our website, so the most common type of work we do is mastering.
