Such a great guy to work with, listens to all your ideas, gives great feedback, 100% knows what he's doing and a very friendly person. Cool place to record everything and a brilliant producer!
Imad is a true professional and I couldn't recommend him more for your project. He mixed and mastered my pop song to an exemplary standard, worked very quickly and was considerate and patient enough to send me regular progress updates. He took my feedback on board and made intelligent suggestions to improve the song. Imad is also a really nice person and an absolute pleasure to work with! 🙂
I recorded 2 tracks with Imad and he has been very patient and receptive to changes, ideas and redoing things a million times! Very dedicated and prompt on communication, it was a pleasure working with him.
He is also a very cheerful, warm guy which helped build a rapport when we started off recording, as we both came from very different tastes in music. Would definitely recommend him!
Imad is by far one of the best producers I have ever come across. What he does is something others often find difficult to do and that is to create a track that you as a singer envision even before you step into that booth. Music is about self-expression and his approach empowers that.
I have 2 great songs already with Imad and aiming to make some more! He listens a lot your ideas and suggestions to make sure that the song will have your identity on it! He also has really good musical ears so every wrong note you sing he will be there to guide you to get the best vocals you can do!
Working with Imad is always pure pleasure! His passion for music is depicted in every project he takes on. Each production has exceeded my expectations in terms of quality, attention to detail and creativity. Imad always goes an extra mile to deliver a desired result and will give further suggestions to make the piece even better. I highly recommend him if you're seeking to make excellent music!!
Interview with Imad Salhi
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: - What are your musical ambitions. - What are your influences? - How much input would you like? Or do you have a set idea in your head?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Bring lots of references of songs that inspire you. Always communicate what you like and what you don't like quickly, if you're indecisive then it communicates that you don't like it. Share our work in progress to as many people as possible - it will help with direction.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: FKA Twigs Her voice is so powerful and beautiful - Her style is so groundbreaking and unique, yet popular.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If your song delivers emotion, and keeps the listener engaged with only voice and instrument, then the production work that will follow will easily fall into place. Think of "Starboy" by The Weeknd, would still sound beautiful if sung on a piano.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly Pop
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: We usually start with arrangement, lyrics, and structure. I normally help the artists make sure these 3 main songwriting foundations are solid, before we start talking about recording or instruments. Basically, a song needs to be able to deliver, even without all the bells and whistles of the production. After that, it's all about solid engineering work to record and mix the song, and solid production work, to bring to life the artist's idea.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After an initial conversation with the artist about what his overall music ambitions are, and deciding that we are a good match, I ask for reference tracks to research what kind of sounds the artist likes. We then book a studio session, and try to lay down the foundation of the track (either guide vocals, drums, bass, or main riff). The vocals are usually redone at a later point, and the process takes us until the artist is happy with the track. Once I receive final signoff, I polish it and master it, ready for release.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a studio in East London, sitting in a complex where other producers and musicians work, it's a great community! I have a piano, guitar, bass guitar, synths, and recording equipment.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love Arca (FKA Twigs producer) - all of his stuff is so groundbreaking and unique. Doc McKinney (The Weeknd producer) - beautiful use of simplicity Jon Castelli - a mixing engineer that uses emotion and feeling in his mixing work, rather than the usual engineering guidelines.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Turn the artist's idea into fully mastered tracks, researching the type of sounds/effects they want to use.
