Interview with Dylan Bernard
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Recently, I produced, mixed and mastered a project for an artist named Nikki Davis. She was in town visiting from Alaska and wanted to create a bunch of songs. The whole time she was here, her writing talent helped guide me to a simple/yet emotional experience that became some of my favorite things I've worked on.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Just seeing where the music takes me if I'm working alone. And if I'm working with an artist or co-collaborator, seeing where it goes with a different take/desire for where we want the song to go. It's truly magical to me either way.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Personally I love adding lush background sounds with reverb to really open up a song in certain areas if the artist/song calls for it. It personally takes me somewhere else when I hear a sound hit and then continue to travel, giving em a sort of floaty feeling.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Reference reference reference. For me it's my starting (and ending) point when I feel inspired to make something. Production can be overwhelming because there are so many different ways you can go about making a song. I believe that picking a song that fits what I want to make keeps my ideas from going too wild and beyond what a song needs. I've also learned that at a certain point, if a song doesn't feel the way you want it to feel, maybe try REMOVING an element that could be covering up the ability to really feel everything that was there before.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: In recent past I've worked on some R&B and Pop projects but I'm open to all genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say communication and execution. I also love manipulating samples and other instruments to make them sound new and refreshing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring the ability to pivot quickly on a song idea if an artist wants to change direction. I bring quick production techniques to provide a full song feel to keep the energy strong and inspire the artist and myself to keep working on the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I have a pretty open process as far as how a song is born. I believe it can start anywhere. Production leading to lyrics and melody or vice versa. In the end, both sides work together in harmony by the time it's finished.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Output Studio Desk, Lewitt Pure Tube Microphone, Shure SM7B, Apollo Twin X Interface, Halo Diffuser
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Artists: Jasmine Sullivan, Jacob Collier, Tori Kelly, Lucky Daye, Prince, Yebba, Maeta, Kehlani, H.E.R, Ambré, The Scarlet Opera, Post Malone, Burna Boy, Justin Bieber, Chloe Producers: Kaytranada, Timbaland, Jack Antanoff, Just Blaze, Mirelle The Gemini
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My most common type of work includes collaboration with artists to produce and build out their vision for any song. Including beat making, composing instrumental pieces, tuning vocals and mixing and mastering the entire project. I have also worked with major companies to bring their audio to quality/loudness standards for worldwide distribution.
