I'm a full-time music producer & songwriter. Recently signed publishing with the producer Axident (worked with Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Robin Schulz, Benjamin Ingrosso etc.) Recently graduated from the international music school LIMPI where I got a scholarship to join the other 44 international students (There were over 1500 applicants that year.)
I make all sorts of popular music. I've recently started doing some commercial work for Podcasts and media-companies needing jingles and/or intros. The past few years I've spent producing pop-music and electronic-music for myself and for international artist projects. Through my own electronic artist project I've massed over 2,5 million Spotify plays, but have now concentrated my time on working with upcoming and established talent in the pop-segment. I have a bachelors in music production from the University of Agder in Norway and a part of a master build from LIMPI where I was mentored by Stargate, Fred Ball, Emily Warren and more.
I specialize in producing pop-music and producing tailored jingles for companies. Whether you have a song you've written and want produced a certain way or you have a startup/podcast etc. which could use some audio to captivate the consumer; I'll deliver an exciting product.

Interview with Flatmate Studio
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on a lot of pitches for major artists and Djs, primarily as a songwriter.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I knock out an easy beat and call it a day. I don't do that, I will listen to what the client wants and tailor the product to those requests. Sometimes it goes fast, sometimes is takes some more time.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Groovy and emotional.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Jon Bellion as I love his sense of rhythm and groove, as well as he is a prolific songwriter and singer. Pretty much has it all and I'd love to learn from him.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never have more than three elements in focus, if you have more you'll make it difficult for the listener to figure out what's the important bits.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: All type pop-music as well as music in the genre formerly labeled urban music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring detail to the meaning of the song. I will always listen to what the song is and never clutter it with music on top of what is the songs DNA. In other words I'll enhance the good parts and do my best to make it a coherent piece of music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I rent a studio in the middle of Oslo and the studio is very much in the box in terms of processing. I use Ableton Live 10 for producing and recording my music, though I have knowledge and own both Pro Tools and Cubase. It's just proven easier to stick to one DAW and Ableton is now my DAW of choice. I have a lot of Waves plugins for post-audio processing and well as Fab Filter and Slate Digital. I also have a wide range of soft synths. For hardware I simply have a SSL 2+ Interface, a pair of Yamaha NS7 monitors, an AT 4040 Microphone, a Fender Squire Guitar, a Harvey Stenton Bass, a Novation Launchkey 49 midi-keyboard.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get very inspired by my fellow Norwegian producers Stargate who's had some incredible success on the world stage of pop-music. I also listen- and look up to creators like Jon Bellion, Max Martin, Tom Misch, Quincy Jones, Charlie Puth, Ryan Tedder and many many more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Usually my days consists of co-writing pop music with other songwriters and then finalizing a production on my own or in collaboration with the writers/artists. Some days I work with an artist in the room and some days I send off the music for pitching. I also spend some time creating music for Podcasts and other smaller media-companies.
