Daniel Sampson

Music Producer and Remixer

Daniel Sampson on SoundBetter

Looking for an Electronic or Pop music producer or remixer? I can help you realize your song's full potential with full song production, co-production, or remixing (and even film composition)! I have been writing and recording my own music since 2007, and I am now offering my production services on SoundBetter! If you need help, I am your guy!

I am a music producer, remixer, engineer, sometime DJ, and trained pianist and clarinetist. I have been producing music since 2007, and have experience in many different styles of music and various settings, from a professional studio to my home "light-switch" studio where I have been writing most of my music. I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz and Popular Music Performance from Western Oregon University in the Pacific Northwest, and have over 15 years of experience performing, playing and producing my own music. I have credits on the labels Emergent Skies, Cities, Shores, and Textures, Mistique Music, Dream Culture, State Control Records, Redux Recordings, Delta Vision Recordings, my own label Tecnosine Music, and self-released recordings, including an album of music inspired by the 1980s under my own name.

If you need someone to produce your next club banger, write an instrumental for your vocals (including some editing and tuning), remix your song, or help getting your track to the next level, don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to work with you! I have worked in many different genres over the years, mostly Electronic and those styles, but I am open to trying out new genres all the time. I have some experience in music mixing and mastering as well, so if you ever need some help with that feel free to contact me!

I look forward to working with you!

Interview with Daniel Sampson

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: Austin Leeds is my go-to mixing engineer currently. I have loved his work on my recent Trance productions and he knows how to get the best out of my music. My biggest influence in the Trance music world is Sean Tyas. Sean has been a friend and mentor of mine for quite a while now, and he was instrumental in getting my music to a much better place, both through his music and his mentorship. I also love Charlie Puth, both for his vocals and for his production skills, which are some of the best around at the moment.

  3. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  4. A: My absolute favorite project I've ever worked on in a school setting was my college Capstone project which was my final requirement for graduation with my BM. The project was an album of music inspired by Pop music of the 1980s and I am very proud of the end result. I was the clarinetist, producer, and mixing engineer of the entire project, and I saved up enough money to have a professional analog mastering engineer master the project to completion, which I was very impressed with.

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: Currently favoring Trance at the moment, so I've been tinkering away at a couple new tracks recently.

  7. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  8. A: Austin Leeds. He is a legend on this site, and his work is top draw.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Digital, but I would love to start building up my analog collection at some point. Digital is what I've been most familiar with since the beginning of my production life.

  11. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  12. A: My computer, my computer monitor, my M-Audio speakers, my Komplete Audio 2, and my samples and VSTs

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: Trance, Ambient and Downtempo, and Progressive House (Hernan Cattaneo style)

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Drums and basslines are my favorite thing to work with, and I often start projects with them, or at least build them around my main elements and then mess with them further along the process.

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

  18. A: Usually I'll start off by writing a chord progression using a piano, either my physical upright piano in my living room, or directly in the DAW. Melodies come next, and I add a basic kick drum and bassline. Once I have that done, I find a track I want to use as a reference, and add arrangement markers and structure out the song. Finally, I start filling in the gaps with elements and build my arrangement. Then it's on to a rough mix, and once I'm happy with where I can get the mix to, I outsource the final mixing and mastering to Austin Leeds and then send out the final masters to the labels I work with.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I am all in-the-box, using FL Studio. I hope to start collecting more gear at some point, but I am very comfortable working with digital-music.
