UK based Electronic Music Producer, I've been producing music for the past 12 years. I've done ghost production for successful artists and I've had my music signed by One Seven Music (Sony), B1 Recordings (Sony), Revealed, Enhanced, Proximity and Thrive. 


As a producer, I specialise in modern Electronic Dance Music. I have worked with some amazing labels and have had my music chart highly on Beatport.

Interview with Oli Harper

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

  2. A: I'm often asked how to get a clean, professional, sounding mix and the truth is it's not just one thing, it's many things added together that take experience and practice to perfect.

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

  4. A: I've been producing music for 12 years and have a degree in Music Production from Leeds Conservatoire. I've been working as a professional Music Producer for 5 years.

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

  6. A: Lots of different genres but most common is probably Piano House.

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

  8. A: If I'm making a track from scratch I come up with the chords, structure and initial melodies of the track first before going into detail with all the parts and finally mixing and mastering.

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

  10. A: Ghost production, mixing & mastering.

  12. A: Singer/songwriters - Lachi, Mickey, Krysta Youngs, Natalie M, Alisa Fedele

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Both, they complement each other. Analogue brings warmth and depth but digital is fast, precise and reliable. They work perfectly together.

  22. A: For me, reference tracks are really important as they help me understand what the client is hoping to achieve.

  26. A: 1) iMac with software and plugins 2) Monitors and subwoofer 3) Apollo Twin Interface 4) Piano 5) Fender Stratocaster

  27. Q: How would you describe your style?

  28. A: Feel good House music.

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

  30. A: I would love to work with Nile Rodgers because he has had a long-lasting career in music and still to this day manages to stay relevant. He has a great ear for commercial music.

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

  32. A: The best piece of advice I would give is to decide if an idea is worth finishing early on and, if so, always make sure you see it through to the end.
