Hey, there my name is FRE. I am a music producer who specializes in genres such as K-Pop, Hip Hop, and R&B. I have had a few placements here and there but most notably by well-known rapper Ray B in Vietnam and a Thailand YouTuber WinnyNaNa. I do have a long list of credits with underground upcoming artists as well if you want to see that.
I offer a lush/chill vibe to my productions. I love doing more r&b/pop related stuff but I also feel comfortable making hip-hop beats around that type of sound. My works can be found over at www.youtube.com/fremadethis or www.fremadethis.com. I also have done multiple mixing/mastering for artists who reached out to me. I specialize mostly in melodic pop-sounding beats. I also can do commercial/tv/ads/branding type of tracks as per my previous works with Samsonite and Creative.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
