I am Austin Collton and I'm here to do what I love - produce music. I wrote my first song in the age of 8 and since then I've been searching for new sounds, creating new melodies and improving my creative and technical skills every single day. Now you found me, and be sure, I'm ready to work hard on what we both are keen on - our music. Let's go!
I'm your guy if you're searching for someone to make a full production around your sketch.
In love with catchy melodies, memorable sonic details and strong music hooks.
I have access to lots of TOP-CLASS hardware and ALMOST EVERY plug-in which I consider necessary for my clients' projects.
I'm not the right producer if you just want to reproduce a track that already exists. But I'm the right guy if you want to EXPERIMENT, or if you want someone who can DESIGN NEW SOUNDS for your music.
Pop, Modern R'n'B, Hip-Hop, EDM and more!
It takes on average about 2-4 weeks to complete a full length track depending on the project, but I always try to work as fast as possible. I really do. But quality is first. STEMS are ALWAYS INCLUDED for mixing and mastering.
If YOU NEED MORE than one track - you get LOWER PRICE and UNLIMITED revisions!
If you need MUSIC FOR A MOVIE, contact me for demo, I'm good at it too :)
