Meet Branden “Kanal ” Belser

Today we’d like to introduce you to Branden “Kanal ” Belser.

Branden “Kanal “, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m Recording mixing Engineer Based Out of Los Angeles, I started in this industry by going to school at Sae Los Angeles in where I was recruited to work with my first artist mitchy slick of the wrong kind,t-shyne from young Thugs Label YSL, & Casino of Futures Freebandz and TDE (Top Dawg Ent). Working With these Artist help put momentum in my career work these were my first teachable moments for myself personally and professionally. I’m currently working with Rostrum Records (launched wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller)I’m working with the Roaster of artist – Salma slims, 24hrs, Dc The Don, Caleb Brown, to name a few.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Being undervalued in this industry is one of the major challenges all while dealing with some many have to learn to become an efficient problem solver learning the artist lingo for trigger words or body motions like subliminal commands for keep that vocal take or punch me (record me after the last vocal take). Learning how to just keep up with the artist is a major task, you want to keep pace so that the artist doesn’t lose their vibe.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I specialize in Audio Engineering in The Music Industry. I basically record mix high quality and production whether it may a vocal or instruments. What sets me apart is being able to capture the artist in there moment without missing a step creating aww moments with effect such as reverb throws and vocal stutter to help the vibe level up a little bit more. Communication with and artist is mandated for me talking to them while the session is in progress will give you an upper hand.

What were you like growing up?
Just doing things that would challenge me mentality and from building model car to video games so it was really appealing to me to start rapping and making music at the age of 12
