Industry Standard on a Indie budget. I've been producing, recording and mixing for the past few years - but have been a part of the music industry my whole life. Running a indie label has taught me everything from distribution and budgets to the importance of good mastering. I feel my vast experience gives me an edge over most engineers.
I've been making music my whole life, but it wasn't until 2015 when I decided to pick up a laptop and focus on making hip hop. I spent a few years studying some talented friends and released my first project in 2018. While the project was a little rough around the edges, it received a lot of local love and helped me cement my place as a DJ/Producer in my city. In 2019 an artist I work with flew me out to engineer sessions in London, LA, Amsterdam and NYC.
I've spent the past 2 years holding down a weekly cypher/hip hop night as a DJ and slowly building a client base of talented artists. I've heard a lot of bars and feel one of my strong points as an engineer is my ability to help you get your message out in the best way possible.
When it comes to my mixing style, I like to start by getting the vocal as clean as possible, if i have beat stems, I make sure the 808s, kick and snare are tight before I get started on anything else. Once I've got the vocal as clean as can be, I start adding effects like Reverb, Distortion and Delay until the sound of the vocal matches the intention of the track.
My beats tho? I'd describe my sound as a hazy mix of Clams Casino, Madlib and Lex Luger. If you like your samples twisted into another dimension with some heavy 808s on it, then let's talk beats!
