Mixing, Producing, Songwriting

akkerbouw on SoundBetter

I love mixing and producing, to create sonic worlds and journeys. And I like to fuck things up in a positive way. I'm a composer/songwriting, that also happens to be mixing and producing German indie artists like Sandra Hüller, Kliffs, Vögel die Erde essen, Daniel Freitag and Mascha Juno.

Lots of vintage analog gear (Mics, Effects, Analog Synths, Drum Machines)
Detailed mixes with lots of character and vibe that help to tell the song. I can also provide overdubs with my analog synth collection, guitar, bass, flute and alto-clarinet.

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.
