Belgian music producer, mixing engineer and cellist based in Antwerp. I ‘ve produced a variety of songs for my own as well as for other bands and artists. All the songs I have made reached a good amount of success. I can help you translate your ideas into songs and mix them till they sound radio ready. I can also make you strong cello arrangements.
I am a mixing engineer, ghost producer, beat maker, editor and cellist and have worked with a wide range of independent clients over the past 3 years. I ‘m familiar with a wide range of genres, from Trap and Future Bass to Pop, to the good old Rock 'n Roll to experimental stuff. I can help you with almost everything.
I absolutely adore experimenting with sound. The sounds that I love the most are big, fat, dark, gritty, loud, and not known, experimental sounds.
I have had a classical cello education for almost 9 years, and I am able to write arrangements with it. I ‘m also able to play the guitar, piano, synths, and many more.
I ‘m really behind the fact that music is a set of feelings and emotions and you have to communicate them in the best way possible to your audience. No matter what the sound is. That ’s my skill! To reach that mindset I am more than happy to give the artist full freedom over there project(s), idea(s), and personality.
I have a studio myself that is capable of creating high-quality mixes without any problems. I am capable to master tracks, but I usually prefer other professionals mastering my mixes.

Interview with Fried Ooms
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always try to tell a story with your music! Never make music, just to make music, or to make money.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I can work on everything besides Metal or hard Rock genres. But my favorite genre is definitely Future Bass.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Actually, all the big names in the industry inspire me. With that I mean Marin Garrix, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers, ILLENIUM, Nicky Romero, … They inspire me because of how they work. How they build that team around them to still make great music, but also have their brand totally on point!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I don’t really have a typical work process. Most of all I wanna Start where the creativity is. If I don’t have room to search for that creativity I just go with the standard. Start with a chord progression, then bass, then drums, then leads, and so on, until I have created a good sounding loop. Afterward, I ‘ll start arranging it to a full song. Then I mix it. When the mix is perfect I send it to the Mastering Engineer. I think that having a standard work process isn’t always the best choice. You gotta feel the music and be open for other rituals to happen. The workflow is different in every project.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My goal is to always bring clarity and feeling to my songs and mixes. I ‘ll always do this in a way that it respects, and brings forward the artists brand and personality.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is definitely mixing. Especially side-chaining and mixing vocals.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I 'll always respect you and your brand. I 'll work hard to let you sound the best you can be!
