“It’s not just production. Wolfie’s also a great writer, a great musician, an incredible drummer. And it’s not like he’s pushing ‘record.’ You know he’s in it. Even on our level of working with producers, that doesn’t happen much. Usually guys are known for one thing, and this thing is something they’re really good at. But you work with Wolf, and his passion is as much as yours.
I’ve been working with Wolfy since I first started making records in my early 20’s. It’s been great to see him grow into the incredible producer he is today. We made the first two SUSTO albums together and I always felt comfortable bringing in my ideas, and also taking his advice. Wolfy always brings a great energy to recording and has a gift for helping people bring their creative ideas to life.
I like working with people who allow me to be myself. An artist needs confidence in his decisions, especially in a studio (where it can be stressful at times ), and Wolfgang always allows his artists to be creative without dismissing ideas — he holds a rare patience. There’s so many different directions a song can go, and it’s special how he allows everything to unfold naturally without being forced. There’s a lot of magick made from that.
