Music producers are (mostly) not on stage like the artists they produce. And yet they are where all the threads and tracks come together. Accordingly, there are countless legends and myths about the "Midas Touch", with which many a producer has turned a recording into something that distinguishes it and has even made it famous. In this way, producers became additional band members, their studio an instrument. George Martin became the fifth Beatle, Berry Gordy the epitome of the Motown hit factory, Brian Eno the prototype innovator of recording techniques, and Conny Plank's farm a pilgrimage town for musicians and bands from all over the world. But in the end, it's hard work, years of experience and a keen sense for the artists that still make for the success of good producers today. So what is phase, we want to know from two experienced producers who have worked with many contemporary German artists and bands, such as International Music, Juli, Ich&Ich, Von Spar, Sportfreunde Stiller, The Notwist and Die Sterne. We want to find out how they approach songs and tracks, what they pay attention to and what is important to them. For this purpose, the two will take three songs each, on the basis of which they will explain their work. You want Olaf and Jan Philipp to talk about your song? Then send it to us! You can find all the information about submitting your song here.
