Darko Richards on SoundBetter

Versatile composer and producer with experience in different styles or genres of music including but not limited to cinematic, rock, electro, pop/contemporary, indie pop, etc...

I cover a great deal of territory these days in regards to styles of music I can produce. But I will admit to having a tendency to compose music with a cinematic feel regardless of the genre. Ideal instrumental productions/tracks for singers looking to then add their vocals. I have many years of experience working with different artists and songwriters so I always keep in mind the structure of the track allowing for vocals comfortably and easily. Or if you prefer to keep it instrumental we can do as well.

    If you need high quality music production, composing, scoring and recording Darko is your man. 😊 👌 He can do anything. From pop to cinematic electronica, from downtempo to rock. Great communication and strong work ethic.
