Are you looking for production of all genres?? Feel free to contact me and lets get to work!!
Terrence “Esquire” Huggins is a phenomenal producer with a new-age sound and a unique array of music compositions. Esquire's soothing chords along with experience in production makes this young producer bound to bring original flavor into this world of music! His inspirations include production from Virginia’s own Pharrell and Timberland. “Hailing out of the Washington, DC area and in being surrounded around such amazing talent in the DMV has only inspired me to want to excel in this profession". While living in the Middle East, he gained so much insight in terms of the development of his sound.
Esquire has completed various projects ranging from Dubstep to R&B. He definitely feels that a heavy influence in tapping into more than one genre is advantageous. Working with a major set of top notch producers such as Da Bridge (Los Angeles, California), Kyle Anthony of VArcity Music Group (Virginia Beach, VA), Eric David (Atlanta, GA), and C-Spikes (Norfolk, VA) has allowed Esquire to not only create musical masterpieces, but to also allow him to sharpen vocal and production skills. Esquire co-produced his first project “The Hidden Crops Experience” (2011) by King Nuzu out of Charlotte, NC, "Imported Cigars" (2013) by Detroit, MI artist Drew Smooth, "The Wake Up" (2014) by Orlando, FL artist William R.I.C.E. (www.atinhut.com), “Priceless” (2014) by Mor-Bux out of New York.

I'm very happy with Terrence's work. Although we had some problems to understand each other, apparently due to a language issue, we finally made progress. I will be very happy to work with him again.
Terrence "Esquire" Huggins will take your tune to the next level! He responds fast and works hard to get to where your music wants to be. ESQUIRE intuitively feels what is needed and delivers quality.
This is our first project with him, and we'll be back for more. Thanks Terrence!
Whether it is beats, drops, production or more ESQUIRE is the guys to go to. ONE STOP SHOP!!! Very professional. Very reliable. Very creative
Esquire is one of the hardest working producers in the game. I met him at a point in my career in which I needed a new, refreshing sound. He supplied that and more. Once he takes on a project, he fully dedicates his time and effort towards providing the artist with everything they need to bring their project to life. This is a quality that is not easily found. A true legend in the making.
I've had the chance to work with Esquire on a couple of projects now and it's been good working with him, he makes great music, his beats are smooth, the quality is top notch and more importantly he's very professional on the business side of things. Thumbs up!
This man always does mind blowing work. Thoroughly impressed everytime. Can’t wait to see what’s next
I’ve been working with Terrence for a few years and he hasn’t been anything short of amazing . He’s helped me to create some awesome art and I think my favorite thing about him is that he is consistent and determined to make sure he produces a variety of content to fit any kind of artist !
Terrence "Esquire" Huggins is a brilliant producer, artist, and music mentor. I've been fortunate enough to witness his growth as a musician, and he never ceases to amaze me. He is completely dedicated to perfecting his craft and I will forever be grateful for the work he has done for me. #TeamEsquire
Super talented! Terrence did an amazing job on my project! I’m still loving the beat! Very unique sound that my audience loves and resonates with.
His production continues to evolve! Nothing sounds the same but I get the same personal touch on every song! I just know I'm getting a dope vibe all around!!!
Interview with Terrence "Esquire" Huggins
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: With clients, I do full stream production and also assist with any other necessary things needed in terms of the music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Producers like Pharrel Williams, Timbaland and Ryan Leslie inspire me fully!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run my productions through Reason 10 and MPC Essentials. I utilize an Oxygen49 MIDI and also a MPD218 for drums.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My process usually involves finding a melody first to go with the feel that the artist needs. Once my melody is placed within the mix, its pretty easy for me to go forward with layering the other sounds that are needed.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring me own originality to every song that I produce. I try to steer clear from sounding like some other piece of art that is already out because I feel that in chasing another sound, you tend to lose your creative freedom.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Keys and Melodies are my strongest skill in terms of production.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I tend to usually produce a lot of R&B and Chill vibes, but I do and have worked in music from many other genres.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never allow yourself to stay in a box in terms of the sounds that you want to create. Always go off of your first instinct. That will allow you to make beautiful music!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: At the moment, I would love to work with Tory Lanez because of his new and complex range of sounds in the creative process. I do feel that in working with him, I would be able to learn a broad range of sounds.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been producing now for 10 years. My career path at first was in doing this as a hobby. But years later and over 10 projects in, that definitely was not the case! LOL.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I have been on a desert island while living in the Middle East for some time, and I had my laptop, MIDI and MPC... Made a whole project I entitled "Nights In The Kingdom" that you can hear in the music listed on my page!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look forward to getting the best quality product. I wont stop until I get you the sound that you are looking for, and that is a promise.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I tend to ask more personal questions to gauge their mindsets. I learned this approach early in, that if you can develop a more personal relationship with the artist and understand them, its a lot easier to make the music that suites them emotionally.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception now days in terms of productions is that anyone can blow up from doing this. So many people have lost the passion and love for actually doing the music. And with the recent things being said of producers stating that those producers of old could never compare to the modern age, I feel that many producers have developed an attitude of not giving those that paved the way for us their roses.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long does it take you to make a beat? Sometimes 1 day. But no longer than a week max. Have you ever worked with a major artist? Yes, and it was a commercial project for Issa Rae
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the creative freedom. I also love the feeling you get when you finally finish a product or single, and see the response from something you and the artist created!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise full compliance and responsibility with your service request. I don't take lightly that you chose to work with me out of all the amazing producers that are listed.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. You tend to get two different broad sounds.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at the moment, as I have recently joined myself!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on a project that is slated to be coming out with an R&B artist out of Chicago, IL by the name of Kira Hayze. I also am pushing and promoting a few other projects that my production is featured on from artists out of Mobile, AL and Portland, OR.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My most proud moment is my first project that I officially produced. I was able to fully produce my first project "Forbidden Fruit" back in 2013 with Houston, TX R&B artist Rolando Damian. That project did major numbers and was featured on many blogs with songs also premiering on radio.
