Got a great song that doens't quite seem like it should? Perhaps you have a clear audible image in your mind's eye how it really should sound, but lack the knowledge to do it?
That's where I come in. I can bring your song to life by either enhancing the song to fully bring out the original idea, or I can go nuts and explore the endless possibilities of the sonic space. Your choice.
If, on the other hand, you're shopping for instrumentals today, hang on, I still got your back! I'll create for you, a fully arranged instrumental with verses, choruses and a brigde, or whatever arrangement you could wish for. You will receive the beat fully mixed , ready to be laced with your awesome vocals.
Here's what I can offer:
- High-fidelity, fully arranged and mixed instrumentals.
- Clean, clear and and crisp vocals.
- Pitch correction and editing of vocals if desired.
- Minor production and arrangement details if desired.
- Commercial-level master of your song(s) making them ready for broadcast.
My instrumentals are deeply rooted in (but not limited to) Soul, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Dub, and Electronica,
and I love to experiment, and I love a challenge. Hit me with your best shot :-)

Christian is easy to work with and acts professionally within all the aspects of the collaboration.100% satisfied and will definitely be working with him again!
Interview with Christian Welde
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly it's production, mixing and mastering, and often I'll do an instrumental for a track.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When it comes to mixing, I usually start with a listening session to gett the feel of the song, and to figure out what the main focus/elements are. I then start sculpting everything around the focal element, creating a nice, rich balance and ensuring organic blend of all elements.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think I bring clarity / enhancement and soul. Music is something alive, and I want to keep it that way. I like to keep dynamic range while simultaneously pushing the envelope. It depends upon the style ofcourse, but in general my goal is to take the original idea of a track and enhance it.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Composition, Production and Mixing
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-hop, R&B and Electronica
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Continuously experimenting and learning new stuff, getting to hear new music and being able to push myself to improve the quality of my work.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

A: My laptop, soundcard, speakers, midikeyboard and midi-mixer
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be clear about what you're looking to achieve with a project, to avoid too much back and forth. Provide some examples if you're looking for a specific sound.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like working in the box. When it comes to quality, I don't think analog is necessarily better, it's just different. I really enjoy the sound of the plugins I use, and having everything in the box makes it more convenient and easier to expand.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Nikey Vital: "The Diary II - Detour". I was the mixing and mastering engineer on this project. I also contributed an instrumental, and did some minor production on the record.

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
