Interview with Nich "S!lky" Jones
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
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.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
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".
Q: What's your typical work process?
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.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Diplo & Skrillex, Brasstracks/Ivan Jackson, Jon Bellion, Chance The Rapper, and engineers like Luca Pretolesi, Chris Gehringer, Manny Marroquin, and others.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
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.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
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).
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
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?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
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.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My most common type of work I do is mix and master for clients.
