5 Reviews - 1 Repeat ClientEndorse Deon Custom
Extremely talented guy! Got the sonic intention of my track exactly how I wanted it. Was patient with revisions and details and easy to communicate with.
Deon was extremely patient, understanding, and professional. He really wanted to take the time and make sure everything was perfect and to our liking. Best believe we will be working much more frequently in the future!
Deon really knows how to make your master hit hard! He is professional in his way of communicating and can work with deadlines!
Deon was able to mix and master my track as I wanted it, his work was fast, and very understanding.
I would work with him again!
It was great working with Deon. He knew what I was after with my mix. He also took my feedback and worked with it. I would definitely get him to do more work for me.
Interview with Deon Custom
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Probably the remix I did for Porter Robinson. If I listen back to it I'm not even proud of the remix itself, but more the fact that he asked me haha!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm going to release a single on bitbird on the 22nd of June. After that there's a little EP on it's way :)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think with electronic music artists in general is that they have no musical knowledge or background. Which often they have!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to communicate as clearly as possible with me. Don't be afraid to give honest feedback. Try to deliver the stems somewhat organized.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Don't think I would even need 5 things... My desktop PC (including screen and keyboard/mouse if that counts), monitor speakers, an external soundcard and a midi keyboard. Everything besides that is just a bonus pretty much.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I think I've been doing this for about 10 years now. It started off as a joke pretty much just to see how I could manipulate audio without even having the intention of making music. Eventually I started listening to sample based hiphop such as 9th Wonder and J Dilla. That got me into making that kind of stuff as well. From there on it got more electronic eventually and I got accepted to a music college. From there on things gradually got more serious I guess.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Chaotic but soothing I think? (for my own music at least)
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There are so many on my list. A few that cross my mind right now: Jai Paul, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Joker, Flying Lotus, Cid Rim. 123Mrk.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mixing it definitely starts off by organizing things. I like the work really well organized so I can easily find things and don't get frustrated by doing so. After that it's pretty random really. I think I usually start off with the drums and mix everything around that!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it gives me more control over everything and it offers more weird possibilities in my opinion. Analog is also cool but it's kind of overrated if you ask me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will try my very best to get the best result possible for them and hopefully leave them very satisfied.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The feeling of making things right. I feel really satisfied if I can make imperfect things ''perfect'' (to my opinion of course).
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: To send reference tracks!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: - Try to mix in mono every now and then. - Try to fix as much as possible in the mixing, and as little as possible in the mastering.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything electronic pretty much! Usually it's dance related but I really enjoy making ambient soundscapes as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think for my own music it's probably the layering and sound design. But that also goes a bit for the mixing I guess!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to not only mix in a technical way, but also in a creative way.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's all pretty much in the box. I have a midi keyboard and just a lot of software where I do everything with. I used to have some hardware but I found myself rarely using it so I got rid of it.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Hudson Mohawke, 123Mrk, Flying Lotus, Rustie, Cashmere Cat, Lido, Cid Rim, Noisia, Lone, Iglooghost, Joker, Awe, Electric Mantis, Porter Robinson and lots more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering.
