Interview with Jay Dixie
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is probably finishing songs quickly when in the flow. But also I think my work ethic/determination is a huge strong point of mine & this really helps create opportunities for myself out of nothing.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! I love the digital side of production for the accuracy of software, and analog for the energy that comes from hardware - it really gives your sound a movement!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We keep going until you are happy! Being primarily an artist, I understand the perfectionism element that comes with art & the importance of the final product being as close to what you envisioned as possible.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'd describe my sound as; fierce, funky & uplifting. Something between those three; I'm just trying to make music with good vibes that can be played for any occasion, from big festivals to radio, all the way to lonely quarantine parties.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Cut everything below 100Hz in your mix, except for elements that purposely need that >100Hz content. The content below 100Hz that is mostly inaudible, suddenly becomes very audible in a mix with 50+ tracks and this will sure enough eat up your precious headroom. Do everything with purpose!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Dua Lipa - her voice is incredible. Producer-wise it's gotta be Sigala; he has a way of producing songs with such feel-good vibes.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'd like to think I always pack vibes, emotions, into a song. No matter the feeling; there's always something. From a technical standpoint, clarity & punch are often what I'm looking to give a song.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Releasing an official remix for Meghan Trainor has probably been my proudest moment so far. The whole opportunity came about from emails I relentlessly sent out every week, and the entire remixing process was relatively quick, which was nice considering I was & still am really happy with the end result.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: In 2015, I started discovering a love for producer/DJs like Martin Garrix & Calvin Harris. I was obsessed with their live shows, and ability to play their own music infront of millions. I wanted to try my hand at it, so I downloaded FL Studio, playing around in trial mode and made some terrible music. As the years went by, the songs got less terrible (is that even a saying?). I then decided after A-Levels that this was all that I wanted to do with my life; so I decided to study Music Production & Engineering at The University of Hertfordshire in 2017. It wasn't until a year later that I got picked up by a dutch label, called ATLAST. Here, I was fortunate enough to release some remixes & originals (and to this day am still doing so), which have accumulated millions of streams on Spotify. Since then, I have released official remixes for Meghan Trainor on Epic Records (Sony) & for VASSY, on my dream label Spinnin' Records, and now have a growing audience of around 100k monthly listeners on Spotify.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on dance/house music, but I also really love dipping in and out of disco & soul productions.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical production process usually starts with a topline, or vibing to some chords on the DeepMind 6. I then lay down the foundational elements of the track, such as the chords, bass & add some drums in. Then I'll get the idea developed until I'm really happy with it, and finally flesh out the arrangement. I'll then take a fresh look at the project, and mix it, before mastering it myself.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is actually pretty basic; an iMac running both Mac & Windows (allowing me to flip between the two for OS-specific software), KRK Rokit 5s monitors, a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface, a Behringer DeepMind 6, an Akai MPD218 & finally, my beloved Sennheiser HD 25-1 II headphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by musicians and professionals from every single corner of the industry. People I work with who are super professional & hardworking are those who I aspire to be like every day. These are usually the people at the top, and they're there for a reason.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do for clients is mixing & mastering. This literally varies on a daily basis; from chill rap songs to big edm bangers.
