Interview with Arkitek MrJ
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on Liane V's project "Lessons On Love" a few years ago. I produced Movie, No Holdin Back which was written by Eric Bellinger and Doin Too Much feat Twayne. I was proud of those 3 songs because that relationship with Bruce and Midi Mafia lead to a lot of TV & Film placements. I never gave up and I take pride in that.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working a TV & Film songs for every catalog.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I would recommend Skam R'tist. He is a great writer and delivers. I don't know Mickey Shiloh but I would recommend singers to get songs wrote from her. She is a super talented individual that does a lot.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital all day. Analog is super dope but digital can get all of the sounds and plug ins you need. Digital is portable and can be taken anywhere from your laptop to a mixing board.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will create the vision you were looking for.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I create income off of something that I love to do.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I usually get asked how much do I charge for beats. How can I get into TV & Film just like you? Can you make a record just like this?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's a huge misconception that everything happened over night. It took time to build relationships as well as tune my craft. Still learning every day.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What sound are you trying to get? How do you feel about the ideas you have for your project?

A: My advice is to have a clear idea of what you want. Direction is key to great music.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my laptop, my midi board, headphones, tooth brush and tooth paste.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been making music for over 10 years. I have touched a lot of networks in Viacom and consider myself a TV & Film artist/producer.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is versatile. I can go from pop to hiphop and kids music if needed.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Beyonce or Drake. They both bring something to a song that catches the listeners attention even if the listener doesn't even like them.
