Interview with Karol Dzik
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Although in a different way, the same thing that i loved about creating music with my band - being able to create something that people can relate to, find fulfilment or comfort in. Because of the way artists that I love helped me in my tough times, I find it very valuable to translate those emotions and energy through mixing.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually ask about references - the songs they look up to and want to have a similar sound to them. I also ask about their demo mix of the song, to see what elements in the mix they put in the front. However poorly it might have been done, this can help me understand what elements of the mix artist cares more about and which one i should expose in the mix.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Before realising that mixing and mastering is my thing, I had been in a band (We're Hiding In Your Garden) for 2 years, with which I released 6 songs and played dozens of gigs. That gives me more understanding of intricacies of music and the creative processes which is very helpful also in the mixing area.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Pronounced, with a lot of dynamics
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: To not be shy while tweaking setting on EQs, compressors and other effects. It's better to overdo it and learn how the effect works, to then better and more tastefully adjust the settings.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Indie, pop, rock, folk, Rnb, jazz, contemporary.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Taking feedback and adapting to it. I'm never taking anything personal to make sure the client can freely express their views on what should be changed. Thanks to my capabilities, I can then without any problems tweak the settings to their liking.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Fresh and creative approach, as well as quality and polished (or edgy if desirable) sound. I'm very flexible.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually this is my working process 1.Listening to the rough mix and referenced music from the artist. 2. Importing the files and organizing them (renaming, grouping, rearranging) 3. Editing - quantizing, cutting empty spaces, reducing noise etc. 4. Basic mixing - levels and EQ only 5. Proper mixing 6. Exporting and listening while on a walk with different headphones on, taking notes 7. Repeat points 5 and 6 until the effect is satisfying 8. Send the song to the client and implement their revisions
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Homes studio consisting of Macbook Pro 2021 (M1); Presonus eris e5 studio monitors; Audio Technica MSR7B as headphones. I also use variety of top rated plugins from Fabfilter, Waves, Slate Digital, Izotope or Soundtoys.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: FINNEAS, Nothing but Thieves, Rick Rubin, Andrew Scheps
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering their music.
