D'kaybee Studios was setup in London in 1998 and moved operation to Ghana in 2000, where we produced many hit records. I am a producer, artist, recording, mixing and masteting engineer with over 20 years experience. I am classically trained and have an ear for many genres. I always strive for the best finished sound possible.

I offer production, song writing, recording, remote mixing and mastering.

I have a background in software engineering and have worked in music technology since the early 1990s, taking on digital recording as soon as it became commercially available.

I have experience with many DAWs including ProTools, Ableton Live, Harrison MixBus, Reaper, Maschine and Cubase among others. Currently Reaper is my DAW of choice and I usually produce using NI Maschine and Komplete Control.

I'm classically trained, having played violin in orchestras in my late teens and early twenties.

I work in a wide variety of genres from pop to hip-hop to opera and anything inbetween.

I always aim to produce a professional radio or streamign ready sound with all my clients. As part of my service, I offer production and recording tips to get the best sound possible before delivery to me for mixing & mastering.

    It's an undeniable fact that David Bolton is the greatest producer I have ever worked with.His work ethics are impeccable.Above all,his level of insight in music production and the music business is strikingly impressive.Its easy to find a music producer but, it's not easy to find one that has paid his dues in the music industry for decades and yet humble enough to raise others.

    I've been to many recording studios for a professional production and I always end up getting disappointed.
    That's until I met Mr David Bolton at D'kaybee Studios.
    Personally I love his epic sound quality and patience to understand the spirit of your music. I sometimes wonder how a person can have a wide range of ideas and renditions to a song.
    I seriously recommend D'kaybee Studios for all serious musicians.

    David gives you what I call ‘The Bolton Effect.’ Pure Genius when it comes to producing and mixing. I knew of his work and wanted to work with him before I came to Ghana. Upon arrival, he did not disappoint. I chose David because I wanted a timeless sound at an affordable rate. I also like that he really listens to what you want and guide you to bring it to life. He is always so patient with me, even when I’m not. The man is unbelievably nice, he treats you like family, yet so very professional. David is a special talent, a brilliant one at that.

    I am a huge fan of David Bolton's work. His production style is unique and immediately recognizable. Layers of sounds and instruments.
    Exquisite arrangements of chords, voices and instruments. And from what he did with my songs, it is undeniable the work of a genius who with great patience and creativity immerses you in his world of sound engineering.
    His production quality shows much innovation, brilliance, and a genuine love of music; you can hear the absolute passion put into every single record.
