Bring your music to the next level with my production and engineering expertise.
I have over 10 years of experience as a producer and engineer, working in various genres and acquiring extensive knowledge and skills in professional recording studio environments.
My clients have been featured on radio stations such as triple j, playlists such as Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Portal, have reached number 1 on Beatport’s Top 100 charts multiple times, and have gathered millions of streams.
Under the name Barbour, I have released many house and techno songs on international record labels and have received support from top DJs such as Solomun, Sasha, and Joris Voorn.
I founded the record label Isolabella Recordings in 2018, which has released music from 21 artists, and has been heavily supported by DJs, playlists, and blogs. I handle A&R, design, distribution, marketing, and have produced/mixed approximately half of the songs that have been released.
In 2023, I am pumped to unveil my most exciting project yet: A new artist project under my full name Eddy Barbour, where I will be releasing a range of music across pop and dance/club genres that I have created in collaboration with talented singers and producers. I believe this music accurately showcases my current songwriting, producing, and mixing abilities. I will also be launching a new record label and publishing/distribution company in conjunction with this project.

Thanks for the studio session eddy
Had another dope studio session with Eddy. Pleasure every time! If you’re in Melbourne and need some stuff recorded be sure to hit him up 👍
Has a dope vibe in the studio with a booth and everything. Cool as dude, ended up going well over time but only charged me for the time I had booked. Great yarns, highly recommend to anyone wanting to record!
Eddy is the go-to-guy! He knows how to get the best out of any recording and is always happy to find that extra 1% to make the record as good as it possibly can be!

One of the coolest dudes I’ve worked with. From the start to the finish, was super quick and friendly the whole process as well as professional, couldn’t have asked for a better engineer for my first song in Aussie. Highly recommend
