    I've had the pleasure of working with Nich a handful of times over the past year. He is a very knowledgeable engineer/producer who has completed excellent work on my tracks across the board. He does a great job in taking direction, while also delivering in a timely fashion. I would certainly recommend Nich for any project!

Interview with Nich "S!lky" Jones

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

  2. A: I usually am working on electronic and hip-hop music. I have had the recent pleasure of working with S4M.SCøTT on his recent "The Night Before" EP.

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

  4. A: I bring my professional experience as a producer and engineer in multiple realms and backgrounds of the industry from modern (electronic/hip-hop) to classic (rock/country) techniques. For example, I interned under studio veteran Clarke Schleicher at Warner Bros. Studios Nashville where I learned classic and analog approaches to mixing while working with Clarke and producers Scott Hendricks and Paul Worley. There I aided in the recording process on Blake Shelton's "Texoma Shore".

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

  6. A: For mixing/mastering: I use ProTools mainly. I focus on making each sound clean with a great space, blending them with summing and saturation, and use multiple sub mixes to build more dynamic contrast, width, and depth in the mix. For production: I currently use Maschine 2.0 but am beginning working in Ableton 9 & 10.

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

  8. A: Diplo & Skrillex, Brasstracks/Ivan Jackson, Jon Bellion, Chance The Rapper, and engineers like Luca Pretolesi, Chris Gehringer, Manny Marroquin, and others.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Both. Digital has so many different options and ways to work that you cannot do in analog, but analog has the sound you want.

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

  12. A: Some remote mixers like to spend an hour or two on a mix and call it a day. I do not. I will work on a song until it's perfect to both me and the artist. Whether that is 5 hours or 5 days (maybe even more).

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

  14. A: What are you looking for out of your song? What kind of vibe? Who do you draw inspiration from? and because I don't like to not work with someone, what is your budget?

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

  16. A: Give them a shot. It's scary to hire some remotely and not know them, but in the end you may have hit the jackpot.

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

  18. A: My most common type of work I do is mix and master for clients.
