Rudi Simon Hoppe on SoundBetter

I make vocal house, pop & country. Vocally deeper than most & suited to songs that need to convey emotion & meaning, good for dance & pop.

With 1.8+ Million plays on Spotify (most from the last year) and a remix release signed to Perfect Havoc I have solid experience of both vocal & production work needed to get traction on streaming services like Spotify. There's an example track on this profile and lots more (mostly live) vocal examples on instagram @rudisimonhoppe

Available for:
- Vocal Session work - an affordable, professional vocal to pitch songs or a release-ready lead vocal. Dance/Pop/Country are the genres I am best at,
- Lyrics & topline melody writing,
- Producing tracks from your demo (if in the house/dance, pop or synthpop genres).

NB: Am doing vocal sessions at a slightly reduced rate as have only recently changed my SoundBetter profile to add vocal work and am keen to build up a review history.

Do you:
- Need a male vocal on your song which sounds believable and conveys emotion? I'm your guy! Especially good at pop, ballads and country.
- Have the basics of your song but need help with finishing the topline melody or refining it? I can also help with this, there is an example of my songwriting in my audio clip.

If you have a fully written song and want it produced, or want a remix done of an existing song I also have good creds for this, see my Spotify artist profile by searching for Rudi Simon.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Rudi is an extremely talented vocalist and songwriter and has an outstanding ear. I worked with him on a chill pop production for one of his original songs and it was such an enjoyable and collaborative process. He truly cares about his art and takes every step very seriously. Tons of respect for this guy and hope to work with him again soon. A pleasure from start to finish.

    We want to thanks Rudi for the amazing work he did vocal wise but also in terms of the final delivery. We were unable get the vocal right for the project and Rudi helpt us out mixing the vocal and sending the mixed stems so we could finish the project. Thanks again Rudi and until next time?

Interview with Rudi Simon Hoppe

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

  2. A: Vocally I think a unique sound and the ability to convey emotion. Productionwise - modern dance production that sounds slick and well made.

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

  4. A: Quite a mix! For vocals country and pop. For production typically more dance or synth pop.

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

  6. A: For vocal work it's typically recording to the backing track, comping, tuning & processing. For production I normally start with the vocal / song idea and build the production around that. I usually try more than one route to see which is strongest. Sometimes people give me stems of a half produced track and in that case I might use some bits of their production but then go through upgrading sections. Once the production itself is in place and we're both happy with it then I would move on to improving the mixing. For some tracks we then still use a third party mix engineer because a second pair of ears on a mix occasionally can yield an even better result.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I'm UAD based so have an apollo twin and a wide selection of UAD plugins for enhancing the audio I work with. MIc is a Neumann U87 which I find to be the best suited to my voice. Mainly use Ableton for production and Logic X for recording vocals. For tuning I have a few options but find the best results come from Revoice Pro. It's so subtle that you don't hear obvious autotune artifacts.

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

  10. A: Vocally I'm inspired by country singers like Brett Young, Dan & Shay, etc. and also by pop singers like Khalid. Producers - the obvious big names in dance and pop production: Zedd, Martin Garrix, benny blanco, and maybe some less obvious ones like Camelphat, Jax Jones.

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

  12. A: For vocal work I'll typically get to understand the message of the song first, then suggest some melody / writing variations (if wanted) and record a first pass for the review. Once the final melody option is agreed I'll record a release ready, tuned vocal. Happy to add to existing backing vocals and use my equipment to tune and enhance vocals - have spent the last few years acquiring plugins!
