This episode we are joined by A$AP Rocky collaborator, sound engineer, producer, and composer Daniel Lynas. We talk about his start as a performer, the advantages of going to school in NYC, and what contributed to his early success. We then get technical and talk about his love for loud speakers, Wurlitzer organs, and the importance of studio room dynamics. Lynas also gives us his favorite production plug-ins as well as the hierarchy of studio equipment and what you should spend money on for your bedroom set-up.
Afterwards we talk about working with artists: the best ways to collaborate, developing your composition, and when you should stop a session. We close out by talking to Lynas about his personal projects, balancing personal creativity and creativity-for-hire, and how he started working with A$AP Rocky. All that plus “Despacito,” Kendrick dominating, woke Jay-Z, reverb, Lord Alfred, and we try to answer the question: What does DJ Khaled actually do?
