Hi! I am a young Producer, Songwriter & Artist from Frankfurt, Germany and based in London. I studied Music Production and would love to help you with your music. I always want to create something special no matter what and strive for perfection and customers satisfaction. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Kind regards, Simon
I studied Music Production at Point Blank Music School to learn the basics and techniques of a professional and high quality Production. I released my debut single in October, which I co-wrote, produced and mixed myself. The song has gained over 100k streams so far on Spotify alone.
I love doing remixes and create something new from an already existing song. I am happy to work towards a brief to achieve the sound you are looking for.
Making beats is something I learn the most from. I focus on melody based beats, that form the foundation of the song. Influences are Nick Mira from Internet Money in particular.
My goal is to offer you the highest quality I can do. However, I am not a specialised mixing engineer and it always makes sense to have another pair ears listening to the song.
I strive to create something unique and special for every project I start. Learning and experimenting keeps me creative and on my way to become better every day.
I am looking forward to be working on new and exiting projects, so please don't hesitate to contact me with your project information and we can start right away!
Click the 'Contact' above to get in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Interview with Simon Eschholz
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am currently working on a podcast called "The Black Monologues". In the podcast black people from all over the world tell their stories, perspectives and opinions. It is about the diversity of blackness all over the world, which I just find super interesting. There are so many fascinating people in there with so great perspectives which is just amazing. It is still to be released, but I did the audio branding (intro/outro), trailer, social media audio snippets. It is a really fun project and I am glad that I have the opportunity to work on this.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My next releases.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Rory Hope for toplining and lyrics. He is a really talented writer. We worked together before, which was super fun and productive!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog because of the feel, but digital because it is so easy. Analog is great for songwriting and getting ideas. You just do stuff you wouldn't do digitally.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will make my best effort to make it right for you. And if I cannot do it or I am not the right person for the job, I say that.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being creative and not knowing what I do the next day.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What kind of references/styles do you like? What mood do you want the listener to be when they hear your song? (club, chilling, heartbroken, lost, happy, ...)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: We are all humans. So being personal is great to have a connection which increases the productivity and how to work with each other. Also being clear about what you want is important and communicate that right is good to be on the same sheet.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop (that's all I need), keyboard, guitar, interface, microphone.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been producing for 2 years now. Before I studied business in Germany, but I always wanted to pursue music, so that's what I did. I had a strong focus and I learned so much just over the past 8 months which is crazy. I feel like the ride has just begun which is really exciting.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I don't have a style. I do what "feels" good and what is right for the song.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Julia Michaels, because I love her writing style and lyrical approach to songs. They are always so real and relatable but still personal. Ian Kirkpatrick, because he is so skilled in making a song amazing with the production. His techniques are so different from what I saw so far, which is really creative.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have fun and don't be afraid to do something weird that no one expects.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: dance/pop, hip hop, future bass, house
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Melodies and experimenting with sounds.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a fresh idea and thought to a song. The basics need to be right in my opinion. So if the melody, lyric or structure needs work I go back to the roots and fix that. Because you turn a "not so good" song into a good one with production, but with a good song you can make it a GREAT song with production.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a fancy home studio. I work mostly in the box, but I like playing synth in with a real keyboard, to get the feel. I treated my room acoustically to have really good environment to produce in. My Setup includes: Mac Book Pro 16", 2 pairs of studio monitors (Rocket 5, Harbeth), Scarlett Focusrite Interface, Komplete Kontrol S88, electric guitar, acoustic guitar.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Ian Kirkpatrick, Surf Mesa, Andrew Watt, Benny Blanco, Stargate, Avicii, SG Lewis, Drew Taggert,
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Music Production and toplining.
