Yann Attia on SoundBetter

I'm a producer/multi-instrumentalist mainly for my solo project Haring but also for TV & Internet documentaries and commercials. I also had the chance to produce music for the GANGUE project with La Fine Equipe and Fulgeance and made lots of remixes for artists from all over the world.

I've started specializing in producing Electronic music when I was 18 years old and I have been producing music for over 10 years now. I've collaborated with many artists and played major live act performances.
My goal is to understand your needs and translate them as faithfully as possible by including my touch.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project. I'm looking forward to hearing from you !
