Are you looking for someone with good music production skills? Maybe you feel your song is incomplete or it just needs polishing? Whatever the reason, I'm more than happy to work with you.
Hello, I’m Ahmed aka "ChordOfAnnie". I’ve been producing for nearly three years now, mostly producing dance music genres such as progressive and tropical house but also have an interest in other genres such as Hip Hop, R&B, Pop and Rock. I would more than love to produce music for aspiring artists or remix tracks for other producers because doing so is a passion of mine. Musically, I tend to be multifaceted as I find myself ready to take on new challenges and experimenting is in my nature. When listening to a song, I believe that the melody is always at the core. The melody is what makes up the entirety of a song and if it is capable of moving the listener in such a way that it forms an emotional connection, then it is safe to say that your job as an artist has been done correctly.
Services I provide include:
- Full length original tracks in any genre (EDM, Hip Hop, Pop, Rock etc.)
- Song Remixing.
- Deconstructing/Recreating melodies and beats from songs by ear.
- Other audio services such as mixing, mastering, cleaning, vocal isolation etc.

Interview with ChordOfAnnie
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My most recent track which is an original I produced. It's in my profile page. It's a solo project so I worked on it all on my own. I submitted it to some record labels just recently and shared it with other producers as a way of getting feedback. I've produced many tracks in the past but this one is by far the most one I'm excited about releasing.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have several projects I'm working on from remixes to original tracks.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not yet.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analogue would definitely sound better but Digital is the winner I think because I've been using VSTs all my life now.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To always cater to their needs as long as we work as a team.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Songwriting and melody creation.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long a project will take? Well I think patience is key so as long we wait the more rewarding the result.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: You have to learn music theory in order to actually start producing.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What they look for in a song? What are the most important components of a song?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key, as long as we work as a team anything is possible.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Headphones, monitors, midi keyboard, mouse and of course my producer laptop otherwise how will I keep producing?!!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: So I'm a doctor who loves making music. I've always had a passion for music and even though I ignored this passion for a long time all I had to do to ignite it again was to simply get out of my comfort zone. I've been producing for nearly three years now and have learned a lot in the process.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style can be considered interesting. If I had to describe it I'd say not too mainstream or unique, instead something in between that ends up working a lot of the time.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I don't have a single artist in mind but it would be an honour to work with any upcoming artist because I find collaborations very worth my time. It's not about who you're collaborating with but instead whether you're getting any enjoyment out of the process or not.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overthink anything, it only complicates the music making process.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It's usually progressive house or tropical house but I'm also open to other genres as this is how I plan on improving my skills as a producer.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is crafting melodies. Given any chord progression, I find being able to create a melody on the spot really enjoyable and learned how to hone this skill throughout my journey as a producer.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Usually when I'm writing a song, I want it to sound as alive as possible by making sure the melody stands out. And if needed, adding vocals helps keep the track more interesting by adding more flavour to it.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually when I start producing I always begin by figuring out the chords, then the melody and the rest follows quite naturally. For me, it's all about letting the creativity flow naturally and to not try and force anything.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup is very minimal at the moment, some studio monitors, headphones and a mid range laptop which I would say is near optimal.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspiration who got me into music production would have to be Avicii. Not only was his music magical but all of his melodies were on point and his song writing abilities were out of this world. May he rest in peace as his legacy continues. Other artists who inspire me include Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero. I've always been a fan of progressive house so their music never fails to amaze me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Remixing and producing original songs.
