Interview with Kasino Brown
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a music producer for most of my clients. I work with them on developing their idea into a full blown song either through browsing my catalog for available works or creating a new work from scratch.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I listen to a ton of music and lots of people inspire me. Everyone from Stevie Wonder to David Foster, George Clinton to Paul McCartney, Lionel Ritchie to Peter Gabriel. I am well rounded when it comes to what inspires me.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: MacBook Pro, AKAI MPC (usually 2000) and a keyboard controller. Most studios I would out of have a have some sort of digital console whether an SSL or Sony and vocals are always on a Neumann U87 or TLM103.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically I listen to the artist's previous works to get an idea of their voice and vocal range and then I go from there based on the feel of the song we are looking to capture i.e. party, sexy, laid back.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my sound and originality. I tend to avoid the trends and give the artist a song that will translate timelessly.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a classically trained pianist, so I am melodic and I play real instruments, i.e. drums, guitar etc.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I tend to work on music that I feel. I get a lot of requests for R&B, but my Jedi Hip-Hop skills are strong as well.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Capture all of your ideas. You may record an instrument or vocal part that doesn't necessarily fit at the moment, but could be used in post or a remix. Don't be a afraid to experiment.

A: I would like to work with YOU! We will probably end up with something amazing.

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Come prepared and ready to work. This is business. Nothing is personal.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your PRO? What is you timeline/deadline? What is the plan for the song i.e. release, promotion etc.?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that I am a R&B guy. I do all types of music. My catalog covers a wide range of music.

A: Customers always ask me what I charge. And my answer is "it depends on what we are working with."
