I work with independent artists specialising in electronic music to produce, mix and master commercial-quality and radio-ready records that stand above the competition. Whether you're a complete beginner or rising star, let's turn your idea into a polished product, one you're excited to show the world.
From curating Spotify playlists, I hear many demos each day. Those that stand out are those where meticulous thought has gone into the arrangement, not overlooking the little things. The devil is in the details; to truly make something memorable you must make every sound interesting, dynamic and not a series of repetitive loops.
My releases frequently receive stellar feedback from producers, DJs, blogs and fans alike.
Please follow the links to some before & afters of my work from a variety of genres so you know you're in good hands:
I'm also able to help with marketing advice, building fanbases and teaching production and engineering skills. My goal is to train the producers of today to become the next biggest talent tomorrow.

Interview with Marksman
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How did you do that..?!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What style are you going for - who do you want to sound similar to? What do you like/dislike about your idea so far, and how can we make it better? What's the plan for the release?
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: All of them
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A full-length album
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Austin Leeds - I used him for a few mixing projects years ago when I was still learning
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital - easier to store and can emulate the analog warmth if you know what you're doing..
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: If we work together, you'll learn a lot more about production and
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The best part is seeing how people react to your work, whether that's through witnessing carnage on the dancefloor or a nice DM saying 'Yo this track is the bomb'
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm some sort of wizard - anyone can learn, it just takes the right teacher, practice, and persistence.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: If you're trying to get better at production, I can help you. I'll give honest feedback on what you send me and tell you ways to make it better for next time - it requires practice.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My headphones, my iPod, a solar charger, probably sunglasses, and maybe a fishing rod?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Originally I wanted to be a rockstar as I loved and listened to primarily metal - I was in a few fairly successful bands but then fell in love with electronic music and wanted to do my own solo project. I started producing on Ableton four years ago, and it's crazy listening back to my first track - how far I've come!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Mostly dark, always euphoric, and nothing like anything else.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Ben Böhmer - I love his music and he seems like a pretty chill guy
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep every single sound interesting and constantly evolving - the same exact sound/loop over and over again is tiring to the ears and we subconsciously get bored of it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Melodic house & techno, plus most similar EDM genres and metal. However, I'm confident in any genre, as the genres are just 'applied rules of the theory of music' with some different production and mixing techniques.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Unique style, sound, and arrangement
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Systematic and methodical - don't waste time, make smart decisions at the start, and plan agead. A lot of people caught in a trap of adding pointless processing to try to make sounds work with the others; in reality, bad sounds were chosen in the first place and much time is wasted. I keep the production process fast and effective by choosing the right building blocks.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Due to size limitations and expensive rent in London (you wouldn't believe), most of my gear is digital - I've got the digital emulations of analog synthesizers and other FX, to me they sound the same..
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: A variety, I listen to all genres - the music you make is the product of what you listen to; I don't want to limit that! Mixing engineers I admire are Hannes Bieger and, of course, Mike Pensado.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Production and Mixing
