Eddy Barbour on SoundBetter

I will help you produce/mix/master your track and get it to the elite chart topping quality it deserves! I have almost 10 years of experience producing/mixing/mastering music across all genres, including pop, techno, rock, house, hip hop, EDM, etc.

Apart from my work as a freelance producer/engineer, I also have a number of my own personal projects including my techno project 'Barbour', for which I've had numerous high charting tracks on Beatport, with support from artists such as Sasha, Joris Voorn, Eelke Kleijn, Innellea, and many more.

In addition to this, I run the techno label 'Isolabella Recordings' which has released music from over 20 established artists so far, with support from Robert Babicz, Enamour, Undercatt, and countless other great artists.
