Producer, Mixer, Engineer, Songwriter, and the artist "DSKO". Being an active artist in the current music scape allows me to relate to the artist perspective when it comes to production/mixing/songwriting. I really enjoy producing and mixing across all genres and actively aiming to create something new, different, and palatable.
I can make a full production around a bare bones song you have.
I will mix your songs whether they are fully recorded elsewhere or music we have collaborated on.
I specialize in Pop, EDM, RnB, Dance-Pop Trance, Deep House, Folk, Synthwave, Future Bass, Future House, Tropical, Trap, and Hip-Hop
I play guitar, piano, bass, and drums but my strongest skills are Production, Vocal Production, Mixing and Editing
