Elated

Music Producer/Vocal Engineer

Elated on SoundBetter

I have worked with Grammy nominated producer Paul van Dyk on our track 'Parallel Dimension' which was the debut single off his 10th studio album Guiding Light.

From West Coast of Canada, now living in Los Angeles. I specialize in Trance, Progressive, & Melodic Techno as well as Recording, Engineering, & Producing Vocals.

My experience with dance music has led me to working with the legendary Paul van Dyk, releasing on VANDIT, Black Hole Recordings, Magic Island Records, & Raz Nitzan Music. I have released and worked with many vocalists over the years such as Amy Kirkpatrick, Brooke Tomlinson, Brittany Egbert, Thea Riley, VIKA, & Jessika Dawn.

As a music producer who has worked with many vocalists my main genres are Trance, Progressive, Big Room, & Melodic Techno. A huge strength of mine is remixing in my unique style. I am no stranger to remixing instrumentals as well, in fact my track with Paul van Dyk is completely instrumental. As a vocal producer, I am well versed in Melodyne, comping, arranging, time stretching & processing vocals. I have also made music for streamers, done sound effects for podcasts & mixed for video.

Every project is different and it would be my honour to help make your vision come to life!

Interview with Elated

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I am super proud of my collaboration with Paul van Dyk. This happened through a really neat series of events where I was supporting a music duo that I thought was making great music. I just so happened to see one of them was an A&R for the label. Through that genuine support and connection I asked if they could send my song in. At first the reply was PvD was on tour and this could take a long time. Then after a week I got an email saying he wanted to sign the track to his new album.. The thing that he really loved about the track was the melody so we worked on it as a collaboration and it was the premiere single off the album!

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Right now I am working with Vocal clients on their collaboration work. I have a new project called Sea To Sky which focuses on deep/melodic house. I am also doing production and audio engineering for other artists.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Both. I have access to a mastering studio that has a lot of analog gear. I think the best of both worlds in todays tech era can provide a unique touch to any track.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: My promise is that when we are finished you will love what we've done.

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: Despite my serious demeanor I am just shy and loosen up once I get to know someone.

  11. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  12. A: I would ask the deeper meaning behind the project. I want a peek into the vulnerability of the clients mind. I have been through many experiences in my life and I want to connect and create the best project we can.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I have been producing for around 10 years. First I was self taught. Then I attended Icon Collective College of Music Online and Flagship LA programs.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Fast paced goal driven hard working.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I would love to work with Ferry Corsten before his inevitable retirement because I look up to him as a producer with so many aliases in so many different styles from across the years.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: Quality is important but it comes with quantity. It's always your next track you level up on because perspective and experience sets in.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: I specialize in electronic dance music and more specifically Vocally driven music.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: I would say experience is my strongest skillset. I have been producing for around 10 years and my very first record label release was a vocal track.

  25. Q: What's your typical work process?

  26. A: From a Vocal Engineer perspective I have record, comp, and tune a vocal in a very short period of time. As a producer once the idea hits I can have a rough demo idea within a few hours.

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: I am primarily using Ableton Live. I have Adam Audio monitors. I have access to recording studios in LA.

  29. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  30. A: I offer music production services such as vocal producing, vocal engineering, vocal recording, music production, mixing, and mastering.

  31. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  32. A: The creation side and connecting with others.

  33. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  34. A: When I have worked with vocalists in the past, splits seem to always be a touchy subject. I have always offered 50% and will continue to do so for collaboration projects.

  35. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  36. A: My advice would be to shop around, find someone that fits your mentality and outlook. Don't be afraid to message any provider to even just chat about your project regardless of the fees listed.

  37. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  38. A: Mac, midi keyboard, monitors, DJ gear & USBs!

  39. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  40. A: My artist mantra is "the message is connection". To me each song has a story whether it's from my own personal life or someone else's. I believe each artist has a deeper vulnerable meaning behind each track they do and I want to hear about that.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: deadmau5 inspires me, Hans Zimmer is amazing, & Ferry Corsten is my all time favourite electronic music producer.
