My music is a blend of different genres and influences, from hip hop to grime to dancehall. I like to experiment with different sounds and styles, and create beats that are catchy, versatile and original. I use various software and hardware tools to produce, record and mix my music. I’ve also brought AI art generation into the mix, which has on
I’ve been making music since I was a teenager, when I started playing around with keyboards and drum machines. I was inspired by artists like Timbaland, Dr Dre, Wiley and Vybz Kartel. I’ve always loved music and wanted to express myself through it.
The name Farda comes from a Jamaican slang word that means “boss”, “leader” or “father”. It’s a way of showing respect or affection to someone who is skilled, influential or older than you.
My sound is influenced by my background as a Londoner with Jamaican heritage. I try to incorporate elements of both cultures into my music, such as using patois lyrics, rnb and reggae samples or UK slang. I also like to experiment with different tempos, rhythms and melodies.
If you’re looking for a producer that just gets it and will help you make the song that you can hear in your head let’s talk.👍I’m experienced, professional

Interview with Beat Farda
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a number of projects due to be released soon. As well as music for movies, tv, and documentaries as either producer or audio engineer.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently had two of my beats featured in a documentary by GRMDaily called Together We Rise. This is actually sick to me as I watched GRMDaily almost every day to keep up with the latest trends and to see what's really popping in UK music at any given time. To have my music featured in their documentary was more than humbling.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes I know a few mastering engineers who I rate highly
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, I can now do everything on a high-end laptop while traveling, on the bus, on the beach (careful of the sands in your fans lol), in traffic, on a lunch break and the difference between analog and digital is so small now even I can barely tell the difference and I actually listen out carefully for this exact thing. This means I can get more work done and I'm not chained to the studio until I wanna hear that final mix
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To be professional, to listen, and to keep going until we are both happy with the project. At the end of the day, both of our names will be on it so we have to make sure that it's the best representation of us possible.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I feel like I don't have a job, as a teenager, I listened to music every day. Now I do the same but it just pays a whole lot better.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I often get asked to make an artist sound like (insert big artist here). My best advice is to give your very best performance possible and we will end up with the best product. Also, be careful not to focus too much on sounding like someone else.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It's not just that I like my music loud (which I do lol) I'm most probably listening for even the slightest bit of distortion, popping, or clipping.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How long have you been making music? What formats do you need your files in? Is there a finished song that this should be similar to in sound and feel?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always provide references to the sound you want, this will help me match your music to the sound that you really want.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Solar Charger, Fishing Road, Food Pot & Headphones - That's all I need lol
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have now been in the industry for 10 years, all of my skills are self-taught, and although I don't have an official qualification I have work in some of the best studios with some of the best artists in the UK. I'm more of a behind-the-scenes person who is more likely to hide from the camera than be right in front of it though.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Soulful with aggressive drums
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Busta Rhymes his technical ability and the number of years he has been in the business. I can imagine the type of knowledge he would easily be able to pass on without even noticing.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It's gonna sound cliche but literally do what the music tells you to do, if you listen for long or close enough the answers come straight out of the music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Trap, Rnb, Drill, Grime, and Afro Swing. Then I have days that I will go off into (insert random genre here) Just to shake up my routine and keep it fun.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Music Production
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring creativity, high-quality sound, the ability to refine lyrics and get a point across with the least amount of words as possible, and years of experience making music and collaborating with artists like you.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Most of my finished projects usually start with me sending the artists a beat, but I can also work with an artists to build their own unique sound with music production to match or add my expertise to help take your already made ideas further.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home setup and a studio space I rent in South London, I use the best equipment where needed ie mic, computer, sound treatment. Way too many samples and plugins and my Maschine which now gathers dust in the corner of the room.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by a new artist every day but generally, it will be someone who works on their craft every day no matter their current skill level. That inspires me to do better in whatever I'm doing at that particular moment.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Beat Production, Mixing, Mastering and Songwriting
