Beatport top charting producer. I help artists and vocalists turn thier song ideas into polished, radio standard productions.

I am a music producer & songwriter based in the UK. I specialise in modern funk and r&b, helping artists and vocalists turn their song ideas into polished, radio standard productions.

Over the past ten years I have had tracks in the Beatport top 10 chart, songs placed on hit US TV shows and remixed a Kool and the Gang single. I also record and release my own music through my own act Van Den Wolfe.

I have almost ten years recording experience (I currently use Logic X and own hundreds of industry-leading plugins) and have been a working musician for even longer. I am from a musical background and have many years experience, so if you want to work with a producer with a solid grounding in music theory I am happy to help.

My main genres are funk, r &b, soul, nu disco but basically anything that grooves. My roots are in the funk and soul of the 1970’s & early 1980’s, but I like to apply modern production techniques to this influence. Please take a listen to my work to get an idea of my sound.

  1. Review by Anthony

    It was an absolute joy to work with Andy for a remix of one of my songs. He created something that I am so excited to release and even got there on the first idea he sent back. He is a super talented producer/musician and very easy and professional to work with.

    I highly recommend Andy and I can’t wait to work with him on future releases.

Interview with Green Light Music

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

  2. A: I recorded a song with Soundbetter artist Jessie Wagner last year called 'Bring Your Loving Back'. The song is an 80's funk/R & B inspired track that has had a lot of airplay on French radio, and hopefully will be released worldwide on vinyl later this year. I wrote and produced the track.

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

  4. A: An electro-funk album scheduled for Summer release, and a house track with top lines provided for client.

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

  6. A: Not personally

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Completely depends on the project and budget. However, I do favour digital and I think the advancements in modern years of soft synths rivals analog. For emerging artists on a realistic budget this makes a lot more sense, and it won't stop anyone topping the charts.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That I will bring my A game to your project and treat the song as if it were my own. We're in this together...

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: Every project is a different challenge, there are so many talented artists across the world and we now have the privilege to connect and work together.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Can I provide lyrics/melodies? The answer is yes but some direction is preferred, otherwise I am essentially writing the song completely for you. (which is fine by the way, but 'artistic license' is required if so). Can I work for a discounted rate? (or some alternative of this!) My rates are already greatly reduced as I am new to the soundbetter platform, and I also include buyout as part of my price. Please take into account the time involved in creating a track, recording vocals, mixing etc. etc. before asking me to work for nothing.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: When I say I am a music producer, many people assume this means I am just offering mixing and mastering services. I do provide this as part of my service, but the main focus of my work is in songwriting, creating instrumentals and helping artists create/arrange the songs.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What vision do you have for the song? Are there any reference tracks you can give me that have the same sound/feel? What do you want to be the main focus of the song? Hook, lyric, guitar part etc. Are there any specific sounds/instruments you want?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Get in touch and let's talk about your project!

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

  22. A: Acoustic guitar, Laptop, Audio interface, Microkorg XL, waterproof GPS satellite phone...

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: Since a very young age I have lived a musical life. I was 11 years old when I heard the guitar solo to 'Sweet Child O Mine' and immediately started learning to play guitar. Since then I have not looked back, firstly spending many years in touring live rock & soul bands and later becoming involved in EDM and dance music production. I now love to work with artists and help them bring their songs to life.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Emotive.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Evelyn Champagne King - my favourite female funk vocalist and I hope she answers my DM's one day...

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: For anyone wanting a funky bass synth sound (and why wouldn't you), copy the bass track over and transpose up one octave. Dial this down to around 60% of the original volume and pan slightly to squeeze more funk out of the sound.

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

  32. A: Dance, pop and modern styles usually.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I pride myself on having excellent communication with clients. Poor communication has been a pet hate of mine over the years when working or collaborating with other musicians. It's unprofessional, lazy and just because we are creatives doesn't mean we can't provide a courteous service. Any client who hires me will receive a prompt, professional service from start to finish.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: My own musical style and almost 20 years experience as a musician.

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

  38. A: I write songs (or 'beats' if you prefer) in a variety of genres, and quite often I provide lyrics and melodies also if required. Firstly I ask the client some pertinent questions, including what they are trying to achieve with the song and any reference files they have for me to work with. Once I understand the artist's vision I begin creating the song, keeping the client updated along the way. If I am providing vocals/melodies I provide a preview track with a guide vocal (usually recorded by a pro session vocalist), and once approved the artist can record their own vocal track to the instrumental. Once I get back the artists WAV files with their vocal on I can import into the project before final mix and master. There are variations to this workflow depending on what the client wants me to do, but this is a fairly typical project...

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I run a pretty lean studio set up, but it gives me everything I need on hand to create productions of all genres. I use Logic X on an imac and macbook pro, have a couple of synths (one analog, one digital), a few electric and acoustic guitars, a small mixing desk interface and a Rode condenser microphone. I also have over ten years worth of plugins, loops and samples that aren't as impressive to list but in reality are my most important tools!

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

  42. A: Way too many to mention, but a few would be: Kashif, Change, Quincy Jones, Prince, Teddy Riley, Marvin Gaye, D'Angelo, Cameo, Nile Rodgers, R Kelly, Isley Brothers, Bruno Mars, Breakbot, George Benson, Mick Guzauski

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I class myself as a producer and songwriter, meaning I work with artists to turn their ideas into great songs. Most of my work is with artists who are looking for an original track for their vocal. I am often asked to basically create a song from scratch based on a specific reference track or genre - I also do this for bands, record labels and publishers.
