    I enjoyed working with RUFF. He remixed for us a song of our composition in a complete different style.

    Although it was not easy to do, he succeeded in making an enjoyable remix.

    RUFF is friendly and very patient. He listened all the time to our suggestions and proposed good ideas when we were blocked.

    I hope to work with him again.

Interview with Nick Ruffalo (Ruff)

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: As impressive as technology has gotten over the last decade, there is something about using analog gear that brings a certain "warmth" to your track you just can't truly achieve with digital. The last 1% !

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

  4. A: Mixing & mastering, as well as production and lyrical work!

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

  6. A: My inspiration comes from a very mixed bag of artists, including The Chainsmokers, Journey, Gryffin, Hans Zimmer, Quinn XCII, Cheat Codes, and Lost Kings.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: I would bring my laptop, an unlimited power generator, my MIDI keyboard, Kontakt and Sylenth!

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

  10. A: What element of your track was the "spark" that shaped and dictated your process? Now let's capitalize on that !

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

  12. A: EDM and Pop.
