Interview with Nano On Da Track
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am proud of all of projects because they show progression and growth from where I was to where I am going to be.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on creating custom beats for NY drill artists and recording/mixing/mastering their songs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. This is because I started off doing everything digitally then was introduced to the analog equipment and plugins later on. Digital is what is being pushed into the industry now because it is more efficient but the warmth you get through analog gear is unmatched to digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I will do everything in my power to make your song sound as best as it possibly can.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The fact that I get to evoke emotions out of the music I create and help others cope with their emotions.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long will it take to make my beat/mix my song/ master my song? My Answer: It depends on what work needs to be done to it. Let’s listen to it together and take notes on what work it needs. Once that’s done I will give you an opinion on what I would do to the song to make it better then, you can tell me what you would like to do to the song and I can give you a project time frame for the service.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about music production and mixing/mastering is that it is a fast process. In reality every song is different. It can take a day to finish it or it can take two weeks.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What do you want to hear from your own music? What is the goal for this project/song?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look for quality of sound and do not worry about the price. It is hard to find someone that creates the quality of sound that you personally want. Once you find someone that does that for you stick with them and do not worry about the price.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take: -My computer with my hard drives -My Studio Monitors -My computer monitor -My microphone -My audio interface
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career path is being a Music Producer/Audio Engineer. I have been doing it for 5 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a very all around style but if I had to pinpoint my favorite types of music to work on I would say Melodic Rap/ Calm Drill/ R&B would be my style.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: J. Cole because he is my all time favorite artist. He portrays himself as a humble and understanding person that goes through hardships just as anyone else does, he is also very talented when it comes to music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Do not overthink your actions. The second you begin to overthink you lose your creative flow and begin to get frustrated. When this happens just take a break and do something else to get your head in the right space to continue creating music (I usually go for a walk out doors).
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work with Rap and R&B music but I do have experience with Rock, Singer Songwriter, Jazz, Electronica, and Country music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Communication. I say this because music is a collaborative process and the goal is to get the artists song to sound as best as it can.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: In every song I create, mix, or/and master, I listen and implement the artists vision, but I also give my professional opinion on what can make their music better and sound more unique. My goal is to produce quality sound that is radio ready.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First, I have a call with the client to review the service that they requested. Then, I take notes on the song they would like mixed or mastered and mix and master the song to their liking. If the client would like a beat the same actions apply, but we would speak about the direction they want the song to go in, what type of melody/drums they would like and the arrangement of the beat. As the beat/mix comes along, any effects that the client would like present would be implemented. Once the beat/mix/master is complete, we can discuss any revisions they would like implemented.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have two Adam Audio studio monitors, a booth with a microphone shield, a pop filter, both a AKG 120p and 220p and foam within the booth.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I was inspired by: -Timbaland -Swizz Beats -Jay-Z -Wu-Tang Clan -J. Cole -G Herbo -808 Mafia
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work for my clients are: -Custom beat production -Recording services -Mixing services -Mastering services
