MR. HO on SoundBetter

I have produced records for many major-label artists including Bebe Rexha, Jaden Smith and the list goes on. I am blessed to work with legends such as Mark Ronson, Mike Dean, James Fauntleroy and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds. My name is known within the industry and background checks are encouraged!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I specialize in Pop/R&B/Hip Hop

Production: I am a classically trained pianist and also a drum programmer and arranger. Whether it be adding or changing additional drums or synth sounds, filling in and creating parts, I can do what's necessary to make the record the best it can sound.

Vocal production: Were you rushed when you recorded the song the first time? If there are parts that need to be re-recorded for reasons such as a lacking performance or inadequate studio equipment, we can do that. Vocals need backgrounds and harmonies? Yes, we can! Vocals need tuning? Yup!

Mixing: Good mixes make a huge difference in how the sound is perceived. It can make vocals shine, backgrounds and instruments balanced.

Whatever it is you need, I can figure it out. I provide clear no-nonsense rates and precise completion dates. Let's face it, this industry is full of BS and I haven't the time to waste nor do you. This is my only job, not my sidegig!

ADDED BONUS:

If you live in Tokyo or Portland and you want to book me, I will fly to you and accommodate myself (no charge).

    Been working with John for several months now on different tracks. John has the patience required to deal with all the back and forward on all the decision making behind every song, and understands what is needed to take your songs to the next level. 100% recommend you to work with him.

    John is the BEST. With his amazing production skills and attention to detail, he brought the vision of my song to life and built it up into something even more epic than I could have imagined. And so great to work with--very patient, gave great feedback and was very open and responsive to mine, and helped me push to really hit those notes and deliver the strongest vocals possible (plus he's a master at cleaning them up and layering them). Looking forward to working with him on the rest of my EP!

Definitely a very talented producer and has his own flare that he brings to the music and he is able to bring it all together in a cohesive way. Really loved the result of our collaboration and would definitely like to work with him again. Thank you John!

    I came in with a beat, melody and lyrics. I needed to record the song, add vocal arrangements and get it mixed.

    - MR. HO provided specific, real-time feedback about pitch, tone and character throughout the recording process. He proposed some harmonies in different pieces of the song, some of which going beyond what I had in mind -and it sounds great.
    - Convenient, safe and known studio location within LA
    - Timely and quality work delivery

    I will definitely work with him again!

He was professionally responsive, flexible, communicative, and reliable throughout. He's got a magical sparkle to him. Hope to work with him, again!

He was able to help me take my concept from the ground up and maintained my vision the whole way through.

    Another Great track by Mr. Ho. I just told him to do what he felt sounded good on this latest track, and that's exactly what he did! He took the song and with his level of creativity and experience, he was able to make it better than I could have imagined.

    MR is an amazingly talented producer. He was able to go beyond my expectations with beautiful instrumentals and arrangement for my song. He also understands the client's instructions very well and always responds very quickly :) I'll be more than happy to work with him again!

    3 years ago I was the very first client of John’s on Soundbetter and I left the first review here, and at the time I knew he was a gem as the sound was incredible! No doubt anyone would love his work, many amazing producers decades ahead of him can’t make the sound that John does, and he’s GREAT with many genres that blew my ears away, yes he’s a genius, cool to work with, and respectful for my artistic vision... and made it all happen.

    After working with John on my first couple of projects, it was a simple choice as to who to use to finish my project. Great turnaround, and willing to work with your project and make sure it's clearly what you want. The only producer I will use for my projects. If you want a phenomenal product, contact John Immediately.

Interview with MR. HO

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

  2. A: If you made it this far down, I can see you're patient and don't mind reading. Well get ready for this one. I've been in the music industry for nearly 10 years now. I've been fortunate enough that this has been my only job. When I first started, the goal was just to break into the industry. I didn't know the rules, all I knew was to create music that I would listen to. And so I did, and I eventually got my first placement with Columbia artist Michelle Williams. This led to major label song deals to publishing deals, management with big companies, you name it. Pretty soon, it became a rat race. It wasn't so much about creating, it was about getting paid. I would be cranking out songs, cutting songs with artists and lots of times the songs wouldn't even release. It was a paycheck. The years went by, I got a nice place, car and pretty much a bunch of shit that doesn't matter. And as thankful as you think I should've been, I was miserable! I had completely lost my "soul" in the music. The songs were no longer me, nor did they represent what I was about. They were professional, but they had lost all their edge. It was sterile. I went on a long vacation to clear my head and when I came back, I had made up my mind that this wasn't how I would spend my days with the job I supposedly loved. If I wanted to work relentlessly without passion, I might as well find a 9-5. Fast forward to about 3 years ago, I decided I would no longer take on projects where I would be doing a single song. I wanted to sit down, focus my energy on an artist and tell their story the best I could. Unfortunately because of the limitations of this site, I can't post everything but the song "Jailkeeper" is the fruits of my labor. It was the catalyst for a string of projects I have worked on since where I've dedicated myself to finding that sound for each artist, and helping tell their story through my strokes. Cheesy enough for you?

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

  4. A: What's your story?

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

  6. A: It really comes down to the music. The credits, this interview, yeah it's somewhat important but the reality is the music has to fit. Don't look for someone who you can warp into what you're looking to do. Be open, and understand that producers are artists as well. We've dedicated much of our lives to creating sound, and the sounds we make are shaped by our experiences. You're shopping for that right sound to put on your wall.

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

  8. A: A machete, water-sanitizing pills, fire starting matches, a tent, and my Telefunken C12. God I love that mic.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Well, I grew up with a lot of influences and I'm inspired by many things. Not just music, but places I travel to, food I eat, furniture, clothes, books. I just pull from anywhere inspiration strikes.

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

  12. A: Honestly, I barely know what I'm doing myself.

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

  14. A: Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Electronic

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: I'm Asian, so probably Math?

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

  18. A: The most important thing to me when working with an artist, is really trying to figure out what they're about and how to tell their story. I want to create records that make people feel something, anything! Creating a hit is never the focus, because it's never guaranteed. Creating something honest is the only thing we can control, and that's always been what I'm about.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I have all the fancy gear that you hear people mention. But most importantly, I have a mini-basketball hoop. And yes, I accept your challenge.

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

  22. A: The list is too long! The Beatles, Daft Punk, M83, Kanye West, Drake, The Neptunes, Banks, Amy Winehouse, Andre 3000, Chemical Brothers, Arcade Fire, Radiohead

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

  24. A: Music production and mixing. Aside from just creating tracks, I'm known for the way I treat vocals and make the artist sound.
