CLOSE-UP REDAH (Reda Haddioui) Music Producer & Composer at WAX LTD

Redah, please tell us about your background, how did you get into music?

I was born in Casablanca, Morocco, and grew up with two sisters playing music and singing. I never really took it seriously until high school. I started posting videos playing guitar and singing American hit songs on social media platforms when I was twelve.

My peers at school and family really liked it, which pushed me to keep doing it until it became my addiction. At first, the sound quality was pretty bad as I was comparing my recordings to top cover bands videos. Since then, I kept trying to improve my sound and productions to match their level. That was certainly my first step into the music production world.

After graduating from high school, I moved to Paris to study Architecture as I have always been drawing, painting; and also because studying music wasn’t really an option for my parents.

After moving to Paris, my apartment quickly became a home studio where I was playing, recording, and producing music every night after school with artists I would discover online or at music shows. After a few months releasing several cover songs singing featuring other local artists, I’ve had my songs played on a few radios in France, Morocco, and Spain.

Eventually, I have been contacted by several French music TV shows to participate in their programs. All of these events made me and my parents understand that music was more than a hobby to me. I’ve been able to convince them to let me apply for music schools, and soon after, I have been accepted and given the scholarship to study at Berklee College Of Music, a day I’ll never forget.

I majored in Music Production & Engineering, graduated with honors in 2016, and moved straight to Los Angeles to live my dream: produce and create music at the highest level.

It has definitely been tough as I had to leave the ones I love the most, but nothing else makes me happier than being in the studio making records.

Could you tell us about WAX LTD?

WAX LTD is a multi-platinum production and songwriting team founded by Wally Gagel and Xandy Barry. It is also a world-class recording facility, and record label with millions of streams worldwide from artists including Zella Day, Blondfire, Family Of The Year, Miley Cyrus, Best Coast, Redlight King, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Muse, The Rolling Stones and many more.

In January 2019, we formed the label AUDIO WAX, a label under Universal Production Music. It is part of the top 10 Universal Production Music labels with the highest amount of downloads worldwide. I’m today proud of being part of such a successful team producing and composing records at the highest level.

You have a key role at WAX LTD, with outstanding achievements in less than four years working in Los Angeles. How did you get this opportunity?

Moving to Los Angeles, I started looking for work as a music producer in several recording studios and ended up meeting Wally and Xandy at WAX LTD studios. I started working with them and eventually proved through my hard work that I had something to bring to the table on bigger projects.

I had briefly worked in other recording studios in LA before, but I didn’t stick to it as I was only given audio engineering tasks in which I didn’t have any creative input. It wasn’t enough for me. I wanted to be a part of the creative process as a music producer and WAX LTD understood that. The team knew how to challenge me to higher my standards and get me to succeed in producing big projects.

Could you tell us more about your most successful productions?

The most successful production I’ve done is probably the song “To The End” that I produced with the team for the movie “Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse”. The song is introducing one of the main characters (Gwen), and the movie did really well winning a Golden Globe, an Oscar, and was nominated for a Grammy.

I knew it would be a successful movie, but had never imagined a few years ago that I would be a part of such a big project in such a short amount of time.

The song I’ve produced for Adaline, featured in Season 3, Episode 6 of “Wynonna Earp”, created a buzz and has been massively shared on social media. The show’s fans made it the most memorable songs of the season, which I didn’t expect at all.

The song “Something Good” I produced for the band “Modern Monet” has been synced by Wells Fargo for their “Rose Parade”.

The song “Chasing The Light”, one of the songs I composed and produced for Universal’s Production library has been one of the top AUDIO WAX downloads, used by major companies such as FOX SPORTS.

The latest one would be the song “Simplicity” I produced for the band “Fake Life”. It recently won the “Best Producer / Best Production” category at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards.

What are you now looking forward to? Any exciting projects?

A few years ago, I didn’t understand how some of my music producer friends could be so busy. I used to take it personally assuming they didn’t want to hang out or collaborate with me. Today I understand better, realizing the insane amount it takes when producing music at the highest level.

I’m looking forward to finishing my ongoing projects, and to keep collaborating with recording artists and songwriters. With WAX LTD, we’re working on some promising records that we’re very excited about such as the upcoming “Creeper” album under Warner UK. With Universal and AUDIO WAX, we’re planning on releasing dozens of albums per year for film and TV.

It is a massive amount of work ahead but I’m very excited and looking forward to it! This lifestyle, although very intense, is what keeps the smile on my face each day.

WAYS TO GET RIDE OF SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION FROM THE GOLDEN PALM AWARD WINNING SPECIALIST

Nowadays, the first thing almost everyone does when they wake up in the morning is to check all their social media accounts. Even if this routine is not in the morning, it is valid for some people in the evening before going to bed. Social media, which is an integral element of our connection with the world, has become even more vital with the pandemic that has penetrated our lives since 2019. After quite long closures, quarantines, distance education and home office work, we started to communicate with the world only through these channels. While there are many advantages of this situation, there are also disadvantages. Although being able to reach what is happening in the world with just one click is an unavoidable blessing, it is clear that these platforms are addictive due to unconscious use on people. In this sense, Golden Palm Award-winning media consultant and author Alaattin Cagil offers advice on how to deal with social media addiction, which is one of the benefits of the internet age. This list of recommendations will now guide you to use social media efficiently; effectively and as much as you need to.

Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil Offers a Solution to Social Media Addiction

A social media addiction causes quite serious psychosocial and personality problem, social media specialist Alaattin Cagil argues that every progress and development in the world has bad aspects as well as good aspects. Especially with the pandemic process, we began to spend much more time in homes than before. For this reason, radical changes have occurred in our lives and daily lives. According to research conducted in our country in 2020, the average time spent at the beginning of the screen is 7.5 hours, Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil said, while the part of this time spent on social media is 3 hours.

We spend quite a lot of time on screen during the day, such as work, education and social media. In order to use this time more effectively and accurately, Digital Media Expert Alaattin Cagil said the following before explaining his suggestions: “it is important to adapt the good aspects of these resources to our lives. When we achieve this, technology resources that are constantly making progress contribute to our development. In this sense, we need to know very well how to turn the technology that has disadvantages in our favor. Otherwise, in the internet age, we will increasingly lose our ability to question, research and analyze by being subjected to many manipulations due to unconscious use of social media.”

Don’t Get Away From Reality with the Magic of the Virtual World

Interactions in the internet environment are slowly beginning to isolate people in the reality of the world. We create very, very different profiles, especially in social media, and we always show the best moments of our lives by sharing them. This causes us to gradually move away from our essence, that is, from our self, and as a result we face a number of personality disorders.

In addition to these aspects, social media channels offer the opportunity to communicate with important names that we may not be able to interact with in our real lives. Just a few clicks away, these important names may be a person who has reached a certain point in your career, perhaps a mentor who will make a significant contribution to your education. Therefore, instead of choosing to experience self-confidence problems by moving away from our own self, we can use these positive aspects of social media.

Don’t Imagine Accessing the Existing and Surreal Elements on Social Media

According to social media consultant Alaattin Cagil, social media has turned into a simulation in which we reflect as if we are experiencing what we are unfortunately not experiencing. Because of the phenomena that call out to quite crowded audiences in this way, many people are drifting towards a sense of self-insecurity, questioning why they cannot get to such a position. And then, like those phenomena that are followed and liked on their social media accounts, they start to picture a life that they don’t actually live, and they start to move away from themselves every day. They believe so much in the life created here that when they return to reality, they become severely depressed. It is therefore necessary to act with this awareness.

Don’t Be Addicted to Social Media

Social Media Specialist Alaattin Cagil talks about the three main needs that people constantly feel in their lives: the need to be appreciated, to be accepted and to be liked. These three needs, which are more or less present in almost every person, generally build the weaknesses of people’s personality. This is where social media comes into play. It fills these small gaps in your personality and allows you to reach the feeling of satisfaction and satisfaction.

As soon as you start to meet all these needs through your social media channels, you unfortunately fall into the clutches of these channels. You want to constantly meet these three main needs, which represent important points in the depths of the subconscious, that is, you want to constantly share and receive likes and comments. Media Consultant Alaattin Cagil states that this addiction is not different from cigarette, alcohol and substance addiction. While these habits harm our body, he underlines that social media addiction harms both our body and our personality, our soul.

We Can Turn Our Disadvantages to Our Advantage

It is also an option to take advantage of the unlimited information resources of the Internet as we wish. With the developing technology, there have been changes in certain habits that were used by the masses in the past. For example, going to the library and reading a book or buying a newspaper and following the agenda with this press tool is a thing of the past. Now we have a huge source of information just a click away. If you have internet from all over the world, you have access to almost everything. Previously, it was necessary to apply to some institutions in order to receive quality education, but today there are many online education programs with rich content. There is a very easy and comfortable access to everything you need to improve yourself in a field you are interested in.

But according to media consultant Alaattin Cagil, although he is thought to be behind, it is necessary not to lose the habit of reading books. Reading a book is quite different from copying and pasting information from the internet, following articles with our eyes, taking notes on important points, and re-examining the book after reading it offers a much different learning experience than the internet. Memory practice greatly improves the ability to store and analyze information. Reading on the Internet offers a completely different experience. In the vast pool of information on the internet, proven and finely crafted texts may not always be available. In this sense, you need to analyze very well where to read about what on the internet. E-book is a very practical and useful option. You can store hundreds of books inside your tablet and access them at any time.
