    It's been a joy & privilege to work with Duck The Bass on a couple songwriting & music production projects. She has a way of bringing out the best in those she works with through her positivity, kindness & encouragement. Being highly attuned to details she crafts songs & music productions that are radio, chart & club ready with her skills & expertise.

    She works hard, is a pleasure to work with, has integrity & a strong & diverse musical background from which she draws from. Her desire to help others, spread knowledge & be her best make every interaction with her an enriching experience.

    I had an amazing re-mix from Duck The Bass! Professional all the way! Easy to work with. Fast clear communication -- solid musicianship and production skills -- a great understanding of EDM. Delivered everything as promised and then some! I am so impressed -- I am already working on another track with DTB!

    Duck the bass produces fresh songs with commercial appeal. If you give her a reference she will capture the vibe and sound of the reference, while complimenting and enhancing your song. She always finds these cool little sounds that I call “ear candy.” I love how she processed my guitar tracks and mixed them into the songs. Everything she does is high quality and her mixes are ready for radio or film and tv.

    As a songwriter and she is a joy to work with. She has a great ear for melodies, and has original lyrical ideas that inspire me. I am always excited when I get to work with her.

    Flaviya has a methodic and professional approach to producing, mixing and mastering. Every decision she makes has a reason 'why' and her extensive knowledge guarantee a quality product. As a producer, Flaviya understands how important it is to have a modern sound while being able to hook the listener. I was delighted with the mastering she did for a House remix I released last year. I highly recommend her services for my peers in the music industry. - Mashado, DJ and Producer.

    I worked with Flaviya as a producer and I can tell from my experience that she delivers high quality work beyond expectations at market levels. She has an ear for latest sounds that only few producers have, is truly gifted as a creative and very musically knowledgeable and is very meticulous and organized in her work.

  11. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  29. Q: What's your typical work process?

  30. A: I always ask for references to understand the vision an artist or songwriter has in their head for the song. I do lots of ear training listening to latest releases by genre and by record labels to stay updated with the current sound trends and record labels' sound, which is extremely important in EDM music. I know lots of music to be aware what has to be done to stay competitive and bring something unique at the same time. I watch tutorials all the time by the best professionals like Jaycen Joshua to keep learning new techniques and stay in a great shape.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: I work on Barefoot monitors, one of the best brands of monitors on the market. It is essential since I make dance music and have to hear the entire frequency range that many other monitors don't cover.

I produce and mix in Ableton Live, do vocal editing in ProTools and can work in Logic Pro X if the client's project comes from that DAW.
