I'm an Artist / Music Producer who knows how to manifest a musical Idea into reality. With over 4 years of experience in mixing and mastering and more than 30+ Finished pieces, spread across multiple streaming platforms, I know what can bring a Track - YOUR Track to life.
Hi, I'm Jan,
I started making music as a hobby with my friends just goofing around but now after almost 4 years now, it became my passion and I do it daily.
I'm an artist under the name - Ou. // Which stands for Open up.
Ou. is a Vision of being fully present and accepting of the present moment.
Living in Harmony with yourself, others, and everything that surrounds you.
I love every little aspect of Music. I'm a nerd when it comes to mixing I always want to get a bit better than before.
I do mostly Trap & Hip-Hop but can adapt fast to other stuff too! Lately, I bin into more cinematic and ambient music.

Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What feeling do you want to track to represent, what was going through your head while making it, what did you feel when you recorded it? Do you have a clear vision of where this track should go? Do you have a Picture or even a whole film in your head when you listen? Where does it take place?
