No New Lovers on SoundBetter

We are Songwriters, Producers, and Studio Musicians with a Music Studio located in Los Angeles.

No New Lovers is Katmaz and Savings,

I've released a few tracks of my own as well, here's what people have said:

"Sometimes a song comes along that's beautiful enough to put me into a stupor." -- Indie Shuffle (Best Folk of 2016)
"a deeply cut and groovy affair anchored with proggy avant garde bass and drums and a bouncy jazz(ish) / meets chamber pop vocal performance all the while having an art rock edge." -- American Pancake
"a soulful piece of folk orchestration that could fill a stadium packed with awestruck fans" -- The Wild Honey Pie

    Creativity, spontaneity, impulse, and fun. That's how I'd describe the creative production of this duo. If you've been beaten down by the same-samey-ness of pop-production, I'd recommend giving No New Lovers a whirl to shake things up.

    I am a singer/songwriter and I’ve worked with quite a few producers before and I have to say working with KatMaz has been one of the best experiences for me! Not to mention how talented and open minded he is, he’s also very professional! He’ll always get back to you as soon as he can and he’s very trustworthy which in my opinion is super important! I highly recommend KatMaz!! He’s just a lovely person, passionate about what he’s doing and really cares about you being happy with the results!

    Katmaz is a rare find, folks. He has great musical instincts, a down-to-earth energy, and a super-duper work ethic. Because he's a singer-songwriter himself, he understands how important getting your tracks right is to you -- and he wants them as perfect as you do. It's unusual to find a producer/collaborator as invested in your work as you are. He intuitively understands the vibe of a piece of music and brings inventive ideas to the table that complement and elevate your vision. On top of that he's just a good and fun guy, which ain't common. I highly recommend him.

    I recently started working with Katmaz and it has been extremely valuable. Starting on a new project can be daunting but Katmaz’s skillset, speed and intuition with music production helps take a huge amount of unnecessary stress out of producing music.
    He lit the fire under my first track. Elevated it into the place that I was looking for. He is a real “feeling driven” producer with all the technical skills of a top mix engineer. He has a great ear and open mind, allowing him to work with genre-bending styles as well as classical/traditional pieces. Genuinely stoked to have him as my producer

    I have been searching all my life for a producer who is a gem. Katmaz’s non-stop work ethic, delivery, execution and mastery of beat creation/ song writing/ vocals are simple perfection and one of a kind. His kindness and “ we are a team” philosophy truly makes me feel like I am in a partnership with the best vibes. He believes in his craft and in you as the artist or teamember His talent is mindblowing. He is authentic and humble ! TO SUM IT UP ,Katmaz is simply a rare find in the industry and you would be foolish to not have him as a producer/ artist/ musician.

    Katmaz has brought my music to a new level by pushing me to expand my sound. I was working with purely acoustic sounds for so long until working with him and I’m loving the evolution of the sound that has been inspired by him. He has great instincts when it comes to making songs come to life, and he’s extremely skilled in the studio which keeps things moving efficiently. He’s also a pleasure to be around.

    INCREDIBLE, Talented, Unique Artist/producer/ Musician!!! Very professional and unbelievably humble. Thats rare when you factor in the caliber of talent. A1!!!! Can’t wait to work on more music with this genius!

    I searched for quite a while for the right producer/collaborator for my new EP, and I found it in Katmaz! He is professional, punctual, and most important-delivers YOUR vision. It was a pleasure to create with him in his studio, and if you let him run free while the track plays, he can provide that extra spark you weren't expecting. My new EP is complete. I fully recommend this producer. Book him now!

Interview with No New Lovers

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

  2. A: Accidents are where the magic happens. Don't think because you do it different that it's wrong.

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

  4. A: Michael Kiwanuka is the name that comes of the top of my head. He has such a classic voice and presence.

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

  6. A: Rock, Alternative, Indie, R&B, Pop and Singer-songwriter are typical, but I am getting into EDM and Hip-hop.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Sound creation. Whether it be from a synth, or diving into the .wav files and manipulating them. I create new sounds.

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

  10. A: Unique life. In a time where a lot of music is starting to sound the same, I believe I bring something very new to the table.
