At my college, my professors call me the "Resurrection Producer" (turning a complete ASS artist into something that's a whole lot better)
What's your typical work process?
When I receive a project I carefully analyze the music.... oh wait you probably have heard of this before? When people say that It's complete BULLSHIT! I see way too many producers say that and most of them don't know what they are talking about. I have the work process very similar to having a drug addict work to find his fix. (without all the sucking of course) I am very persistent with my work flow. I shove things out of the way just to get that one thing done. and that one thing is my client's projects
Tell us about your studio setup.
It's funny because i have complete access to the studio they have at my college. I use it a lot and I have contributed so much that they give me full access to the studio. the place is loaded with state of the art equipment including the GLUE Compressor (My personal favorite).
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Typical EDM DJs like Armin, Tiesto, and Above and Beyond. I really grew up to listening to deadmau5 and thats what really got me into making music. Hip hop producers also like Mikewillmadeit, Zaytoven, LexLuger, you get the point.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
We would focus most definitely the direction me and the client would take our project towards. If it's like a HARD Hip-Hop track then we would view our direction towards real rhymes and the hype of the song. mostly Hip-Hop now is hype songs but thats what makes it sound good in the clubs. If its a Dance or EDM track, we would focus heavily on how the song sounds and cool effects we can do.
