EDM producer and singer / songwriter from UK, interviewed and featured on BBC Essex and Suffolk, reviewed and mastered many clients' tracks with success, produced over 150 tracks. Taught music production at uni music society. Most notable tracks: Goosebumps Remix, Golem, Saint, D'Vorah, Hydroxide, Wild Night. Worked with many different artists.
I've always found mixing and mastering prices to be unfairly high, which is interesting as the process is often much easier and quicker than many producers make it sound like. It's often because they aren't looking in the correct places and waste too much time on the wrong parts or aspects of a track.
I can mix and master tracks very quickly, much faster than most producers will often do, and I don't sacrifice quality or fidelity, as I know what it is I have to look for when mastering.
I've been a producer for more than four years and had the incredible opportunity of mixing and mastering over 150 tracks. I've worked with more than 15 talented artists who have all been greatly satisfied with the results I bring, and have been aired and interviewed on BBC Essex and BBC Suffolk. Artists I've worked with include: Lisa Schettner, Black Winter, Dekcr, Tropic and others.
"Very easy to talk to and quick to respond. He immediately understands what I need without knowing all the specific terms and never adds his own 'spin' on things for no reason. It's very refreshing; sometimes you work with producers who alter your track in a way that you don't want, and charge so much that you feel bad about asking for a revision." - Lisa Schettner, October 2021

Interview with Tyler Brooker
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I'd take my mic, my laptop, my midi keyboard, my mouse, and a mug so that I can attempt to make tea. Or coffee, if there's any of that on the island.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: In September 2021 I released an eight-track EDM album called Blood, Sweat & Fears, featuring two talented producers.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Depends on the genre, but I've never worked using analogue due to my style (and budget), and all of my customers and people I've worked with have enjoyed the results I gave. Nobody has ever said my sound was too 'cold'.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Can you provide me with a high quality WAV file, not an MP3? (High quality = 44.1kHz or higher, 16 bit or higher, stereo)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure their services are reasonably priced - $200 to master one track which should take less than an hour and take minimal gear is not reasonable, in my opinion.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've always been into music, especially electronic music. I chose to music for my GCSEs and then did music technology for my A-levels while producing stuff on the side, which impressed my piers. At uni I helped run a music production society and taught students, older and younger, how to make electronic music, which was generally enjoyed.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Often aggressive and energetic, melodic and powerful, with an atmosphere that creates goosebumps.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Nom de Strip - an incredibly talented EDM artist who disappeared around 2015. A shame, because he could have easily shifted the tide of electronic music's overall view.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: When working on your track, make sure you listen to it through MANY different devices before the mastering stage. The mix needs to be as balanced as possible - creating a track from start to finish while only airpods will not achieve this!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: EDM, dance music, house music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The ability to adapt to any genre or requirement for a track. You need me to master folk? Rock? Funk? Electro? I've got it!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The energy needed to make anyone dance and vibe.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on the task at hand, but mastering is not a complex process. Check dynamics, check EQ, check the stereo image, check if the track requires and saturation or excitement, and limit.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Almost entirely digital, very simple and effective - a high-performance laptop with a hi-fi speaker setup (sometimes I use Bluetooth speakers, plus others for checks), AKG headphones, Sony headphones, Philips headphones, etc. to ensure the track sounds great through all devices. I use Mixcraft 9 with many plugins and samples to produce, edit and master music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am heavily inspired by electronic artists such as Nom de Strip, KSHMR, R3HAB, Martin Garrix, Calvin Harris, Armin van Buuren, and many others.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am most comfortable with mastering almost finished tracks for clients to ensure it is clean, polished and ready for distribution.
