Growing up playing acoustic instruments in bands (piano, guitars, bass, drums) and later falling in love with the electronic world, I specialise in creating organic-feeling electronic sounds. I aim to touch and move the listeners and provide a beautiful (or weird, or aggressive) landscape to support the rest of the track.
I have a lot of experience with song-writing, producing and mixing which helps me keep the focus on the important things - the singer and the song.
I'm a classically trained pianist, having played and toured as a keyboard player all over Europe (currently touring with Alberta Cross).
I had the pleasure of working with and learning from some fantastic producers such as Stephen Street (Blur, The Cranberries), Gordon Raphael (The Strokes) Eddie Stevens (Moloko, Zero 7) and many more.
I'd also be happy to offer melodic hooks, little harmony changes, percussion and groove ideas -
all recorded in my high end studio, going through first class preamps, EQs and compressors.
I grew up in Israel, lived in Berlin for 17 years and am now based in Brighton / UK.

Oded was a complete joy to work with. Extremely quick turn around every step of the way, very poised and friendly. I am beyond thrilled with his gorgeous composition. He went above and beyond, bringing my song to life in ways more beautiful than I could have envisioned. Oded was super patient and receptive to feedback, and practically a mind-reader when I was reaching for a certain sound/mood but didn’t know how to describe it. Would be honored to work with him again. Enormously talented dude.
Oded is an awesome player with real talent. He brought real value to the project.
Great at working collaboratively and helping me to achieve a specific sound. Patient, and just overall great to work with!

Great synth sounds to take my project to the next level. Excellent communication and fast turnaround time
It was an absolute breeze to work with Oded on one of my songs! He understood what was required for the song and delivered on it. I am really happy with the output. I could say a lot more, but let's just say you should work with him for your music!
This was my first song getting anything done remotely and Oded helped me by answering the queries I had, thankful for the help on that front.
Oded did excellent job and was easy to work with!
I have worked with KD on many projects. some of them as a very talented keys player, others as original composer, producer and a mixer. I always found him very attentive, focused and dedicated. brings out creative musical ideas with his own unique style and aesthetics with extra care for details. communication and service provided always in a pleasant manner and very professional . I totally recommend working with him. you'll be in good hands.
I've worked and collaborated with KD in both live and studio formats and I can honestly say that he is a superstar. Insanely talented musician and producer with an excellent ear. Efficient and reliable, he is the definition of professionalism.
KD worked as a producer on my project Goblin Prince and brought my tracks to life with great arrangement ideas, beautiful synth work and a determination to get each song to the highest standard possible.
He fully understands that the production should enhance the song and the performance, and his honesty and clear communication creates an atmosphere of trust that made working with him an absolute pleasure.
