Specialist Electronic / Dance / Pop - Writer / Producer / Mix Engineer. US Billboard #1 Dance Airplay Single, BBC Radio 1 Record Of The Week, 10 UK Club Chart & US Billboard Club & Airplay Chart Top 10s, 3 x Production Music Award Nominations, MTV Playlisted
I'm a specialist electronic music Writer, Producer & Mix Engineer based in the creative hub of Bristol, UK. I've had releases with: EMI / Sony/ATV, Universal Music, Island Records, Parlophone, Ultra USA, Kontor Records Germany, Warner Chappell, BMG, Armada Holland, 3Beat, Positiva, Nervous USA, Time Records Italy, Hed Kandi, Ministry Of Sound, Circus Records + many more!
When it comes to producing and mixing records I consider myself to be a perfectionist and I take my time to get the track sounding the best it can. When working on other people's records I pay the same attention to detail and treat them as though they were my own. My goal is to make my clients happy and I believe in creating good long term relationships.
