ERIXOUNDS on SoundBetter

I am the DROP KING™.

I do everything from scratch, from start to finish. Songwriting, production and mixing are my specialties, however, I feel equally comfortable toplining, arranging, playing all common instruments (baritone vocals, piano, guitar, bass, drums), and mastering.
