Andrei Sora on SoundBetter

I'm a UK-based producer and mixing engineer with over 2.5 million streams of my productions. I hold a BA (UNMB), Master's (Oxford) and, PhD (Surrey) in music, am a multi-instrumentalist, and specialize in pop, electronic, indie, and rock.

I'm a one-stop shop solution for all of those voice notes on your phone that are just begging to be made into full songs.

► Production - If those voice notes lead to a finished song that now needs producing in order to be fully realized, I will develop the idea it into a Spotify-ready track. I'll take your sketch, be it in the form of a voice recording of you humming the song, vocal & guitar/piano arrangement, or general demo, and add the necessary production layers to make the song fit your vision and style. (All of my productions include mixing and mastering, but I also provide stems and multitracks - upon request - for external mixing & mastering.)

► Mixing - If those voice notes have already led to a production that's just not hitting hard enough or lacks that final layer of polish, I can take the stems or multitracks and provide a clean, deep, and wide mix that will make your song fit perfectly on any Spotify-playlist.

► Mastering - If all of the above processes are done but you just need that extra power, sheen, low end boom, and volume, then I can take your mix and master it so it competes on the market, finding a place next to any contemporary song.

  1. Review by ariellecatarina

    This was my first time working on an original song with a producer and Andrei was great. He is very responsive and has a quick turnaround time without sacrificing the quality of sound. Andrei is extremely talented and brought my vision to life, which I am so grateful for. I hope to work with him again in the near future!

  2. Review by Sergen C.

    This guy's work is seriously incredible. The attention to detail in his production is just next level. You can feel the passion and dedication he puts into every track. Whether it's a chill vibe or something more upbeat, he nails it every time. Seriously impressed and can't wait to hear more from him. Keep doing your thing, Andrei!

  3. Review by

    I briefed Andrei to work on a track I want to produce for my debut spoken word EP. My brief to him was: "reproduce the magic of my on stage performance in a recording". He's taken MANY rounds of feedback, been very generous with his time and he's done it!👏 You can tell Andrei has deep knowledge and appreciation of many musical genres. I’m extremely happy with the final result and I’m already looking to work with Andrei again on another track because I know he can be trusted to deliver the goods.

  4. Review by Russell D.

    Massively enjoyed working with Andrei. He was patient, diligent, responsive and imaginative. He made my music sound immeasurably better and he made the process fun. Would definitely recommend.

  5. Review by Sergen C.

    Once again it was a lot of fun working with Andrei.

    Sometimes I don't know how to express ideas or change requests or try to describe my feelings.
    Andrei always recognises immediately what I want to say and implements it perfectly.

    I'm slowly running out of compliments for future reviews. :D
    Because what he does is indescribably good.

    And he does it all while remaining totally cool and professional.

    A very likeable and empathetic guy!

    Thank you, Andrei ♡

    All brilliant

  9. Review by Charlie A.

    Andrei worked on one of my tracks and was a dream to work with! He’s extremely communicative, listens to your vision and works extremely hard and quickly to deliver his work. I came to him with a rough vocal demo and is now exactly the song i’d imagined. I’m so happy with the song we made together and would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank you Andrei!!

  10. Review by Nikki G.

    Andrei is the most incredible talent in all realms. He is incredibly patient, hardworking, communicative and kind. I couldn't recommend him enough. He executed my vision perfectly. It was an honour and a pleasure. Thank you!

  11. Review by Sergen C.

    Andrei nailed my first song perfectly. ♡

    I only gave him a poor acoustic version I recorded with my 5 years old mobile phone.
    It was just a sketch of the song to be precise, but he pulled out his magical formular and produced + mixed it, adapted to my needs.

    The creative potential is limitless here.
    Plus a completely fair price.

    An honset, good, patient, down to earth person.

    What else do you need. Book Andrei already :D

  13. Review by Josh K.

    Another fire track completed with Andrei Sora! This gentleman is the epitome of class, professionalism, talent, creativity and skill, always bringing to the project superior communication, attention to detail, great ideas, and a positive attitude. Andrei would be a terrific asset to anyone looking to hire a first-rate producer for their projects!

  14. Review by Inae L.

    Working with Andrei was such a fantastic experience. He was so quick in catching what I was aiming for and quick in communication and turnarounds, which I couldn't thank him enough. He uses the right sounds to make the song dramatic, which I needed. I would definitely work with him again!

  15. Review by Josh K.

    Andrei is just a first-rate talent! We got the song completed in a timely manner, he helped us overcome some challenges with skill and professionalism, and was very encouraging and positive throughout the entire process! We're very happy to be working with Andrei! He would be a great person to work with for anyone looking to take their projects to the next level!

    I cannot thank Andrei enough for the amazing arrangement he has made for me for a flute duet I played. I am an amateur musician and wanted to make this piece special for my daughters wedding. It is stunning and I am so grateful for Andries expertise and kind interest in my project. Thankyou so much

  17. Review by Josh K.

Do yourself a favor and get Andrei for your project- you can thank me later!

    Another great job by Andrei. I really liked the way Andrei took my initial sketch and turned it into a song with a driving guitar based riff. Andrei is a very talented musician firstly being able to hear that such possibilities exist in a rough sketch and then able to make a top quality song around the idea

    And just like that, me and Andrei have completed production on my new album! He was truly an amazing collaborator and friend all throughout the way! I can’t stress enough how amazing he is. Thank you for everything!

    Yet another great bit of work from Andrei who took my rough and flawed demo and turned it into a really lovely song. Andrei showed an amazing amount of patience, dedication and hard work to get the best out of this one. Thanks a lot Andrei! A well deserved 5 stars

Interview with Andrei Sora

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: Listen to their past work, have a long chat before committing to a project, and make sure they're the right fit for your creative vision.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: My 20 year journey hasn't been the most straightforward, constantly bouncing between being a music-maker and music scholar. I hold a BA from UNMB, a master's degree from the University of Oxford, and a PhD from the University of Surrey, all in music. However, this academic process reinforced my view that 'writing about music is like dancing about architecture', and with this realization came the freedom to DO music full on rather than philosophize about it.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Visceral, alternating between vulnerable sparseness and intense wall-of-sound sections.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: Pop, synth pop, electro pop, alternative pop, and, occasionally, rock and metal.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: Knowing how everything fits melodically and harmonically, and using that knowledge to enhance the emotional weight of the lyrics.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: I bring my expertise as a producer, engineer, and instrumentalist. I've been making music for almost 20 years and have explored a slew of styles, from candy pop to heavy metal. In addition, I also hold multiple music degrees (PhD at Surrey, Mst at Oxford, and BA at UNMB), which give me an edge.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: Ian Kirkpatrick and FINNEAS as producers, Jaycen Joshua and Serban Ghenea as pop mixers. I also find inspiration in the work of rock mixers such as Chris Lord-Alge, Andy Wallace, and Andrew Scheps.

  15. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  16. A: That I'll go all in, regardless of scope, and make music that both the artist and myself can be proud of.

  17. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  18. A: The music I recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered for the youth bands at Powerjam Band Project. Their music has gained over 300,000 streams on all streaming platforms.

  19. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  20. A: Can you record guitars? My answer is always yes, as I've been playing guitar for 20+ years. I also record real guitars through real amps and pedals.

  21. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  22. A: Making music with other people.

  23. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  24. A: Production, mixing, and mastering, more often than not as a package.
