Interview with Michael McDowell [Dowell]

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Probably my set for EDCNY. It was a ton of fun to pick out my songs + a bunch that I really enjoy and then play them out live. That set is available to download on my soundcloud :)

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Just finished up an EP for a producer signed to Armada. Was a ton of fun to work on, and was not my original style.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not at the moment.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: If you're unhappy, I will work until you are. And if not, I will give you a full refund!

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
