Esh Nachmany on SoundBetter

Hello! I'm Esh - Artist, producer and session player creating and producing music under my own project (Monad), and a variety of other projects for the past couple of years. Need some vintage keys on your track? Looking to add some real tape grit or echo to your vocals? How about that bass part you've been missing? Tell me what I can do for you :)

I specialize in Indie & Electronica

Whatever your project is, I'd be happy to lend my ears and skill, and assist in taking your song where you want it to go!

Production & Session Work: you can send me stems or a stereo bounce of the audio, afterwards we'll discuss the vibe you're after and the instruments or gear that'll fit that sound. I'll write and record it for you and send it over - usually, this leads to passing ideas back and forth and honing in on the right part for you. Whether it is adding, changing, filling in or creating parts or sounds, I'll do what's necessary for your song to shine!

Mixing: I mix with a hybrid, lean setup of vintage outboard and digital equipment. I encourage you to listen to some of my mixes listed above to get a feel of my mixing style.
If you're looking to transfer a mix or individual instruments to tape, or tube up a dull sounding instrument or mix to get some of that old-school grit and depth, don't hesitate to contact me and I'd be happy to help!

I believe you'll find my rates clear and competitive.
every project I take is approached with an open mind and heart, and I'm always excited to watch a vision turn into a song.
I'd love to hear about your music, click the button to get in touch!

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
