I strive to help you create or finish your music productions with the best possible quality. I make sure that you get the best personal help with achieving your goal when it comes to music production. I listen carefully to your wishes and make sure that you get a sound exactly like imagined.
My name is Nick Housmans and I’m a producer from The Netherlands. Under my ‘Husman’ alias, I have produced lots of tracks for labels such as Armada Music, Spinnin’ Records & Big Beat Records. Next, to creating music for myself, I want to help in the challenging music business of today.
I have been producing music for about 10 years now, I started producing Trance music when I was 14 years old and went from Trance to almost every EDM genre, just to find my own sound. To hone my skills as a producer, I have studied music and graduated at the Rockacademie in Tilburg. Here I learned what is needed to create tailor-made music & sounds for any unique situation, varying from creating the biggest EDM tracks to subtle emotional cinematic pieces, Jingles & pop records.
I've recently worked with clients such as Hunkemuller and the UEFA Women's Euro championship, among many others.
Everything I’ve learned through the years I’m going to use to create the best possible music & sounds for you!
