Mono UK shabby road south on SoundBetter

Hi my name is James and I have been actively producing music for around 30 or so years. I have played in several bands (some signed some not) I can midi program from the bottom up on tracks and create a radio friendly sound and can also play guitar/bass/drums etc..

Competent to build a track from scratch I can either be just your mixing engineer or I can produce the whole track. A very experienced mixing engineer who can either work from instructions or by a free rein of creativity.

As a creative I hear and can replicate large epic productions and can generally improve the original significantly.

Contact me for prices of projects as I am open to any kind of work, However my knowledge does not cover rap/R'n'b or any variation of metal.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

  2. Review by Lombard

    James did a really creative remix for me. I couldn't have pictured where he was going to take the song and I was amazed with the finished result. He took input at various stages and aimed to please. The other thing is that he was speedy - whole job took no time at all.
