I started producing music in 2004. It has been my passion ever since.
Since 2015 I am fully self employed in this field.

For my own records under "Dennis Sheperd" or "Atrocite" I usually do the composition, sound-design, mixing, mastering & structure (basically the whole track except the vocals) on my own.

I am extremely passionate about getting the best sound of the records that I am working on.
Mixing & mastering, processing vocals and sound-design are my favorite parts of a production and my strengths.

In the past I have successfully collaborated with Vengeance on the following sample-packs and soundsets as well:
- Vengeance SamplePack: Trance Sensation Vol.2
- Vengeance SamplePack: Trance Sensation Vol.4
- Vengeance Soundset: Trance Vol.2 (for NI Massive)

    It was really nice working with Dennis. Got a track mixed and mastered and I couldn't be more happy. The mix is exactly how I imagined. He is very professional and easy to talk to. When you work with someone who has been making music since more than 10 years, you can be rest assured your money is well spent. Will surely work with him in future.

    Very professional and knowledgeable. Dennis is a strong communicator and took the time to understand my needs prior to accepting the work.

    I would not hesitate to use his services again and I would recommend him for anyone looking for some assistance with their project.

Interview with Dennis Sheperd

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I am very proud about one of the projects for my own artist project "Dennis Sheperd" and that is my second artist album "Fight Your Fears". Completely crowdfunded, all tracks produced by me, mastered by me. I hired a designer, I got in touch with the manufacturing plant for pressing the CDs. Basically everything has been done or coordinated by myself! When I held that CD in my hands for the first time, I was very, very, very proud!
Analog or digital and why?
Digital all the way. Why? Less time consuming and complicated and you achieve the same sound quality!
What do you like most about your job?
Meeting new people and working with them! Other than that producing and/or mixing a track gives me a lot of self satisfaction. I am a perfectionist and if the result is great, I'm happy. :)
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I am usually asking about their expectations. And then I decide if I can meet them. The right chemistry is also pretty important. After that I usually ask for references as well.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Electronic Dance Music
What's your strongest skill?
Mixing & Mastering + Sound-Design
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Armin van Buuren, Rank 1, Andrew Bayer, Above & Beyond
