Dan Malsch talks shop with us about diversifying the range of your portfolio, how quitting is just not an option, and our shared love for Summit compressors.
You’re also going to be clued in on how to deal with the psychology of working on high profile, high pressure deadlines and requests as well as gain insight on the producer’s role and whether or not it’s appropriate to push your artist, or to “ride the vibe” and work with what you are given.
“I think getting things to sound absurd is more of a matter of getting the elements to work together like a puzzle rather than adding and adding…It’s like a Rubik’s cube almost, especially with low end…suddenly it sounds absurd, in a good way.” – Dan Malsch
