Interview with T.A.V.

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

  2. A: A single called "Jazzy". I decided to try something different when I created that song and a lot of people loved it. Both the older and younger generations gave good feedback. Plus I was able to merge multiple genres into one and eventually started crafting my own signature sound through this song.

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

  4. A: A new single called "La Familía".

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

  6. A: Ken Lewis

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Honestly I use both. Each one serves a different purpose. Sure analog is richer and warmer and I can go into all the tech stuff about frequencies. But by the end of the day good music is good music. If people feelin' it that's all that matters.

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

  10. A: I'm committed to delivering a quality product and making sure I bring your vision to life.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The process! I just love to create and bring a vision to life.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: 1. How long have you done music? A: About 5 years. 2. What other genres do you create in? A: R&B. Sometimes I'll incorporate subtle influences from other genres but it's still all rooted in hip hop.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: The biggest misconception is thinking that you need a lot of expensive equipment or a bunch of crazy plugins to make good music when in reality you don't. It's not necessarily about what you use but how you use it that makes a world of difference.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: 1. Tell me a bit about yourself. 2. What type of vibe/emotion are you going for? 3. Any particular requests? (Instruments, reference material, etc.)

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: If you're an aspiring artist keep in mind that you yourself are a brand. The more clear you are on who you are and the message that you carry then the easier it is to articulate that in the music.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My laptop, an MPC, and a midi keyboard.

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

  24. A: I've done music for about 5 years. I started out as an artist and eventually started producing my own music. Then I started making and selling beats for others.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: A blend between modern and old school. Mainly Hip Hop with various influences from other genres.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Any artist I have not worked with. I'm always looking to collab on new projects.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Don't be afraid to explore and try new things. Don't worry about sounding like someone else. If someone inspires you find out what it is about them that inspires you. If it's drums work on your drums. If it's a certain instrument they play then play that instrument but in your own way. Listen to various genres of music. That's how you discover yourself and eventually create your own sound.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Hip Hop, Trap, R&B

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I've been told I'm a master lyricist.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: Ideally, a signature touch. I make sure the song is in alignment with the vision of the artist. But if I hear something or come up with an idea I feel will compliment the artist and the overall song I offer insight. If they like it, great. If not, no worries.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: First I like to get clear on what the overall vibe and emotion of the song is. Then I develop the concept around this feeling. From there is where the magic begins. I like to follow my instincts when I create and I'm not afraid to explore and try new things. I find instruments that express the overall feel of the song. First I craft a melody, then lay the drums, then vibe to it for a bit. Then I organize the structure of the beat based on the overall vibe of the song. From there I start to write. I usually like to start with the hook then work my way through the verses. After I finish writing the song and recording it I like to listen multiple times. First time i'm listening for the production and the overall feel of the song. Second time i'm listening to the lyrics and the overall message. Third time i'm listening for the ideal market. (Target audience, where I ideally hear the song being played, etc.)

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I use Logic Pro X as a DAW.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Metro Boomin, 808 Mafia, Chop Squad DJ, Timbaland, Alecia Keys

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I create custom beats and production that not only captures their vision but also compliments their sound and brand as an artist. I specialize in Hip Hop as well as R&B.
