Interview with Starscream
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I was working with a Puerto Rican artist that was making a reggae-ton song that jadakiss was getting on and they needed a hard NY style hip hop beat for Jadakiss to record his verse too and was first one called and will never forget working with him being one of the greatest ever. I had limited time maybe hour and produced the track in about 30 minutes. The session went better than expected and gave me that much more confidence that this is what i was meant to do.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I play every note in my arrangements myself and because i work mostly on just the computer this day in age people assume that i just arrange loops or sample instruments played from other musicians and that couldn't be further from the truth.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: In this day in age first would be my computer as it contains most of my sound library, 2nd MPC drum machine, Midi keyboard controller, a good studio mic for vocals, and the biggest hard drive possible if im going to be stranded on a desert island for who knows how long...
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I think an important thing that takes a lot of producers time to figure out is that you don't want a lot of high frequency sounds playing that will interfere with artists vocals and an easy way of helping if one still wants the particular sound is with a EQ Plugin and cutting out the higher pitch range to let the artist vocals come out more and having each sound in a different frequency range eliminates two or more sounds clashing with each other especially in low end bass range freq.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Im inspired by producers like Scott Storch, Aarabmuzik, Timbaland...
