Congrats on the new songs with Andrea Love and Terrisa Griffin. Tell us about these projects.
"Come Together" was supposed to be the first single but when we wrote "More Love" it just seem right! The Terisa Griffin record is a production on her album and we thought that would be a great single for MJD.
Radio seems to love your vocal productions and remixes. What is your approach to recording songs in the studio?
My approach to making a record is to make a song timeless - meaning not to have all the new hip saying at the time. I like to take my production soulful since that's my passion and each song I do I go in a different direction.
What kind of gear do you use?
Since 2004 I've been all digital! LOGIC PRO 9 is my weapon on choice!! and a tons of soft synths!! LOL
