Davide Russo on SoundBetter

Official remixer for The Chainsmokers and Marshmello. Over 40 million streams with my project Ruhde on all platforms. 12 years of experience in the music production. Placements on: Land Rover, Disney +

I’m Davide, music producer from Italy.
In 2015 I was part of the duo “Haxon & Rush” with releases on Universal Music, Armada and Eclypse Records with support from Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix, Tiesto and Tritonal.
Our song "We Are The Fire" went viral on Spotify Italy and placed #3 on ITunes Dance Chart.

In 2017 I’ve started my project “Ruhde” - My first release was an official remix for Lauv which accumulated 6 million plays and counting on YouTube and SoundCloud. I had the opportunity to officially remix The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Sandro Cavazza, Seeb, Young Bombs, Alessia Cara and many more. I had support from EDM.com, Billboard, Forbes and nominated “One To Watch” by DJ MAG Italy.

I can start work from scratch or you can reach out to me with some rough vocal ideas or with final recorded vocals, either as an a cappella version or with an existing production that needs to be remade.
You can also send me references if you want.

- Quick turn-around time (3-4 days)
- I'll revise until the artist is 100% happy with the song.
- Project will not be delivered.
- All features must be either uncredited or under my alias if discussed and agreed upon.

I would be happy to work for you and giving life to your vision 👊🏻

    Working with David was fantastic! From discussing references and ideas to the final version of the mix, David was responsive and made adjustments perfectly as needed. Would love to work with him again in the future!

  4. Review by Andrea V.

    As I'm working very often with Davide, I realized that on one hand our relationship is getting more relaxed, but on the other hand that I'm becoming more picky and I'm asking a lot from him. Well, he always delivers. Always at 120%. Make yourself a gift, and hire this guy.

  5. Review by Andrew B.

    Davide is the best to work with. He’s got phenomenal taste and elevates every track he touches. He’s a true collaborator who will always aim to make the best song possible and always brings a golden touch to each record. Worked with him too many times to count now but each time keeps getting better and better.

    This is the second time I’ve worked with Davide, and he continues to impress me with his response time, his creativity and ability to produce and create exactly what you were looking for almost like he reads your mind. If you’re even slightly considering DJ to work with he would be my go to, and only number one choice on here! Don’t even think about anyone else!

    Both brilliant and talented.

  11. Review by Andrea V.

    Excellent job on a demo that Davide previously pre-produced.
    He worked on it until we got a radio-ready song, with rich layers and very good voice optimation. Communication was friendly and easy, as always. Definitely one of the best producer on SB.
