Ashley Slater on SoundBetter

Hi, I started off as a session trombonist in the 80's, and moved into writing and production at the end of the 90's, after being a popstar with Norman Cook for a while, in the band Freakpower. Now, I do voiceovers, toplining, mixing, remixing, production, film scores, children's TV music and produce 'radio dramas' for Amazon/Audible.

Grammy and Oscar nominated.Very proficient and creative, with a strong sense of pride in my finished work.

Interview with Ashley Slater

  1. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  2. A: Your most important bit of equipment is stuck to the side of your head.

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

  4. A: Dance and pop, to modern classical for scores.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Ears, and lyrics. Singing. Trombone playing.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: It's very small, not much gear, but it's all top quality and I know how to use it.

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

  10. A: Most of my days are currently spent writing toplines with my writing partner Scarlett Quinn. I've just finished producing an album for Dave McKean's new multi-media show 'Black Dog'. I've worked with Dave on all of his film scores to date. I'm very good at tuning and compiling vocals becuase of the topline work, pretty much spend 3 hours a day doing that and producing the vocals for our clients. I've also just started working as a sound designer, music composer, editor and post production mixer for Amazon/Audible on a never ending series of 30 minute dramas. When I'm not doing that, I'm gigging as a trombonist, or writing library music.
