Creating music that will echo on for generations to come. Quote: "The music is not the notes, but the silence in between...
I am a young, multi-genre music producer/composer and audio mixing engineer with experience working with major labels in the music industry, including the likes of Universal Music and Virgin EMI Records. I work and compose in various music genres, including the likes of Modern Pop Music, Hip-Hop, Trap, Afrobeats and many other sub-genres.
Influenced by environment and surroundings, I have built an extreme love for creating music, and expanding on my musical abilities, merging together sounds from different collections to make new creative pieces to be enjoyed. Through this learning process, I have developed great understanding of the fundamentals of music and mastering, and have great experience using compression, EQ, limiting etc, to achieve crisp sound quality in all of my productions. I have an incredibly fast turnover rate and am able to make amendments and sculpture pieces that suit the artist/clients needs.

Interview with TK The Producer
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! Analog gives that authentic, warm and original sound that can't be replicated quite as sweet. Digital because its the new wave forward, the amount of change and new sounds that can be created digitally is ridiculous!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I put 100% passion and effort in all of the work that I produce, and have high standards in terms of quality provided to clients.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Having fun making music I love!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Is being a producer difficult? Answer: Yes, but the passion I have for music eases all my difficulties away.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Headphones, an iPod full of all my favourite music, Portable Loudspeaker (to blast out in the open!), and of course, food & water!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Started in secondary school/middle school, working on instrumentals here and there, until a song was dropped which amassed 2 million Spotify streams and 1.3 million Youtube views and counting, catching the attention of major labels like Universal Music. Working with many artists every since.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Grooves & vibes, with intricate percussions and melodic bass tones.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Many artists, but a real drive to work with Drake, as he is one of the most influential artists of the current generation in Hip-Hop, and working in studio with him, the potential of hits being created is 100%!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Let go and feel free, let your music have no boundaries. The best producers are able to overcome the biggest obstacle of breaking the rules and getting the ideas from their heads, and out from speakers.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually on UK 'Afro-Bashment' beats, but also Pop, House and Hip-Hop instrumentals alike.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Collaboration and interpretation, understanding what an artists or client wants/needs, and replicating that as best I can.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Great melodies and different grooves and vibes that give goosebumps!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The general work pattern is to find the right vibes, listen to reference tracks in the genre with the artists to gain some ideas, then depending on what feels most appropriate, laying down a basic melody or drum pattern, that is built upon into a main chorus. This is then re-arranged forming the structure of the song, with FX and foley's added. This is all done while leveling and EQ'ing during the process. If the artist is present, songwriting also occurs during this timeframe. The the beat is either finalised and exported, or recording starts.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Most instrumentals are made in my local studio setup running on a 21-inch iMac using Logic Pro X, using M-Audio BX8 monitors, AKAI MPD232 & Alesis V49 MIDI Controllers & Keyboards etc.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: A large variety in various scenes worldwide, including the likes of Steel Banglez, Mantra, Metro Boomin, JAE5, Ian Kirkpatrick etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Majority of work with clients includes creating instrumentals in studio or out based on reference tracks, and the 'vibes' at the time.
