Modernize Your Sound & Mindset with Music Producer Nick Phelps

“A lot of people don’t understand that you can’t just pull out an old Casio keyboard and start making a beat and think that’s gonna compete,” says sync music producer Nick Phelps. “I wanna give people a fighting chance in the sync world. I wanna give people permission to stand out in their own way. …It’s not just sounds, it’s the structure, the way you phrase something, even certain words that you use. So there’s a whole bigger picture of what modern is than just sounds.”
