    Chris is an INSANELY talented producer. When it comes to producing your song he is a perfectionist. He makes sure ever last detail is exactly what you were wanting and more. If you are looking for a producer that slays Dark-Pop, R&B or Electronic do not bother looking any where else... Go ahead and hire him, you can thank me later 😉

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris more than once on two very different kinds of songs and am so happy and proud of both of them. Chris is a great listener. I feel how much he cares. His attention to even the subtlest detail and pleasing his client is evident from start to finish. Plus, Chris is just a talented, cool person and every session short or long was fun! Chris delivers! Hire him!

    I absolutely LOVED working with Chris! Not only is he a talented powerhouse producer but he’s extremely kind and funny and really listens to your vision. I’m really meticulous and he always made me feel welcome to share notes and ideas and has such a positive attitude. I love how our track came out and he really knows how to execute a modern fresh take on any song at the highest industry standard. Will definitely work with him again in the future! Thanks so much Chris!!

    I worked with Chris back in 2019 on a single and several times we have crossed paths since. I would highly recommend him! He understood who I was as an artist and gave ideas that elevated the work, he's very easy to get along with and has a friendly presence. I'm hoping to work with Chris again - and you should too!

    I have worked on a ton of songs with Chris and he always delivers incredible professional work that stands out and he is so much fun to work with.He kills it with any style of music too including dark pop and cinematic. Chris goes over and beyond the call of duty to deliver outstanding music I proudly can pitch to my sync agents and I know they will land placements like the one I had land in Batwoman that Chris produced. It's sometimes difficult to know who you can trust in the music industry but I can 100% assure you Chris is one you can always trust to deliver exactly what you want and more!

    I have had COUNTLESS productions made by Chris and I can say with absolute certainty he is the best in his field. He's got such a good ear, he's able to take any ideas I throw at him and create something even BETTER than my reference tracks. Do not waste your time shopping around other producers. If you want a QUALITY track, use Chris.

    Chris has saved my musical @$$ on MANY occasions, coming through with killer sound design that really set the mood for each piece. We've probably worked on a dozen songs together by this point, and EVERY time he smashes it out of the park.

    When I think modern electronic production, I think Chris Durkin. You should too.

    Chris is incredible to work with. I am lucky to not only have him as a producer but as a friend. He is patient and does not stop working on your project until it is 110% what you envisioned. I highly recommend working with him!

Interview with Chris Durkin

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

  2. A: Arcana - Stockholm Syndrome. It was the first track I wrote with Arcana at our writing session in LA. It's now got 100,000's of plays and was covered by ALiEN, a Korean dance group who smashed the choreo - take a look:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeLi_mlLZEc

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: The people I meet. 100%. I've had the pleasure of working with so many artists from different countries & cultures.

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

  6. A: - References (what sounds/instruments do you like & why?) - What do you want to achieve with this? - What are your plans with it? - What's your favourite food and why?

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

  8. A: Make sure the sound is what you're looking for & make sure you vibe! It should be a fun experience writing music.

  10. A: Weird, emotional rollercoaster ride.

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

  12. A: Short answer: Ignore the rules, if it sounds good, it probably is. Long answer: Once you know how things work and why, it means you can break the standard "rules" and use that to your benefit.

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

  14. A: Dark pop, electronic, pop, trap... it depends! I've even created some cinematic productions that have been featured on CW Batwoman.

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

  16. A: ~spice~. Seriously though, I bring a unique outlook on how to create the best sounds for each production. Let your song shine!

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