Yianni AP on SoundBetter

My goal is to deliver the highest quality product to you efficiently and affordably. I've mixed records for buzz artists like Elohim, Hazel English, Holy Child, Ne-Hi, Ashe, Jaws Of Love (Local Natives side project) and many more. And I've produced songs for Moa, Fever Charm, Dead Poet Society, and Frankie.

I have been working professionally as a mixer, engineer, and producer for over ten years. After graduating from Berklee College of Music I moved to Los Angeles where I currently live and work. When I'm not in my private studio you can find me in any one of LA's incredible studios or on the beach.

    Yianni produced two songs for me and then was able to quickly help me with some cleanup work and created performance versions of the tracks. Can't wait to work with him again soon.

    I LOVED working with Yianni. He is extremely talented, professional, and easy to work with. He produced, mixed, and mastered a complete song of mine and I am absolutely thrilled with the result. He was happy to make any revisions I wanted and he made sure that I was 100% happy with the final product.

    I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to take their music to the next level!

    Yianni is a fantastic recording engineer, producer, and mix engineer. As a former fellow student with Yianni at Berklee I am happy to say he is one of the best to come out of the school I've known so far. He has recorded, mixed and produced, my band (Dead Poet Society), numerous times and the results have never been short of exceptional. He has a long and prosperous career ahead of him.

    Loved working with Yianni. He has a super awesome studio in SilverLake Los Angeles with tons of guitars, basses, drums, mics, and all sorts of cool gear. When I was looking for a producer to work with it was important for me to be able to work with them in person. Yianni's studio space really made that possible. His studio and his talents as a producer make working with him a dream! Thanks Yianni!

    Yianni is the MAN! Seriously, he did an incredible job producing my 5 song EP. He agreed to do one song first so that I could make sure we were a good fit, and as soon as I heard what he did with my song I knew right away I wanted to do my whole EP with him. Incredibly patient, kind, responsive, and just a great collaborator.

    I was a little concerned when I saw how affordable Yianni's rates are, but after I heard his mixes and talked with him for a bit I was blown away. YIANNI IS THE REAL DEAL! I had him mix 2 singles for me and I loved his work so much I am going to have him mix my next album.

Interview with Yianni AP

  1. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  2. A: Honestly the most commen question is how much is it going to cost and how soon can I get the final product. And my answer is almost always, "whats your budget and when do you need it by."

  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: I'm really proud of a couple of songs I worked on for the artist Jaws of Love. This is a side project for the singer of Local Natives. I was the lead engineer and mixer. I'm really proud of this one because this is one of the bigger artists I've worked with and I was really happy with the results.

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I'm always working on a lot of things, but what I'm most excited about is an EP that I'm producing for a talented artists by the name of Emree and another EP by another talented artists by the name of Morgan St. Jean. They are both incredible singers/writers and I'm really excited for what is to come when they start releasing our records.

  7. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  8. A: I know Jack Collins very well. He is a very talented producer, mixer, engineer.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Digital for most things (pro tools, processing, etc.) because it's so easy to recall settings. If an artists needs some revisions I don't need to rewire my studio and spend an hour getting the settings on my hardware right. That being said, I do use some analog gear, specifically synths. Analog synths bring a nice warmth that I havnt been able to fully replicate in the digital domain.

  11. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  12. A: That I will work my hardest to make sure they are 100% happy with the end result. In addition I promise to be honest and to push the artists to achieve greatness.

  13. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  14. A: I love that I get to be creative!

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: The biggest misconception of what I do is that because I can do so much (mix, master, engineer, produce, etc.) that I must not be very good at each of those things. I believe each of those skills informs each other and work together.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I like to ask a lot of questions. What their vision is, what their turn around time is, what the song means to them, how I can help their project, and what are some reference songs.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Don't settle for a product that you are not thrilled about. Make sure to really honestly communicate what you want and what you're feeling about the results.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My laptop, interface, guitar, headphones, and microphone

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I started playing guitar when I was about 12. Soon after that I started a band with my friends. When my band needed someone to produce and record our songs I stepped up and gave it a shot! I quickly fell in love with production, engineering, and mixing. I started working with more bands and interned at a local recording studio. I later attended Berklee College of Music where I graduated with a degree in Music Production & Engineering and with a minor in Commercial Record Production. I made a lot of life long friends and connections at Berklee. After graduating I moved to LA immediately. I started working with artists as soon as I arrived. About a year into living in LA I was able to start renting a private studio (where I currently work) to start working with more artists/musicians.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Big, modern, and simple.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Phaerell

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Keep it simple stupid

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: I usually work on pop music. I'd say it's about 70% pop, 15% hip-hop, and 15% rock/everything else.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill's are producing tracks from scratch and mixing.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring a unique and modern production style accompanied by an ability to make the song sound and feel sonically awesome. At least that's the goal!

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I start by talking with the artist for a while to get a really good understanding of what their vision is. I think this is probably the most important step. After I have a clear understanding of the vision I like to dive right in. If it's mixing or producing, I'll just go ahead and take a day or two and focus just on that. For production I'll typically start with a groove/drums and then build the instruments around that and the vocals. Once I have a good draft I'll send it to the client or have them come in to the studio and from there we work on any notes they have to finish it up.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a nice private studio in SilverLake LA. I was really fortunate to get this great space to use as my studio. It's got tons of instruments all around, drums, guitars, etc. And it's big enough to record a full band live or to just have a bunch of people in there hanging out/working on a song together. It's filled with plants and natural light :)

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: There are a lot of producers that really inspire me, such as Ricky Reed, Benny Blanco, Max Martin, and more. I'm inspired by their dedication to the craft of production and the fact that basically everything that touch turns out incredible.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: The most common type of work I do for my clients is production. Usually a client will have an idea for a song (lyrics, chords, and melody) and I will produce the music and track for them.
