Indie Label. Pro Home Studio. Producing excellent hip-hop beats. Recording an mixing artists from an array of genres. Session guitarist. Singer / Songwriter.
I work as a recording / mixing engineer, as well as a session musician specializing in guitar. I own a small independent record label called Cease Fire Productions. I've been producing hip-hop beats for about 5 years and currently that is what keep me busiest in the studio, I love making beats custom to the style of different artists! I also mix so send me your raw tracks to mix down into the clean, bright, punchy final product you want for your demo or EP. If you're stumped on ideas for filling out your song with some other instruments or sounds, I love finding that perfect guitar / piano / banjo / organ tone you might not think is there.

It was a real pleasure for me to work together with Cease Fire Productions! Great tracks in a short time, very creative, extremely friendly, absolutely pro! Looking forward to work together again!
He's an amazing guitarist. Loved his work a lot. Would totally recommend him.
I had a great experience working with Cease Fire. The rapper did a good job in getting the rap spot on and what I like the most was the great and constant communication that was given.
Another amazing track from Cease Fire!
Solid guy with a sound understanding for your vision! Definitely the first of many to come.
I had a vision and Cease Fire Productions made it a reality. Now my reality will elevate to new heights. Braden is very professional, quality of work is amazing, handles assignments fast, and is a great communicator/problem solver. Overall grade, A+++
You see folks. In order to mix a Hip Hop track you got to have the ear for it. Everybody & their mama can do 808's/fast hats & that's cool. But I'm talking bout that good ol classic sound. This guy right here gets it. But none of this means anything without communication and his consultation game is on point. Best believe we doing this again.
Interview with Cease Fire Productions
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Working closely with them to create a project they can be proud of.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The most recent album I worked on is also my current favorite of my own work, not that it's my album but rather one I produced for an artist named YYZ. I worked together with him as the producer / recording / mixing engineer, but also got to do some writing and singing throughout the album, as well as play all of the unsampled instruments myelf, so I felt like I was really infused with the music and was really happy with the result we reached as a team!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: If I could pick anyone currently is would probably be D'Angelo. He really knows how to take his time and produce a masterful body of work, and is great at choosing artists that complement his style and working with technicians to reach these great sounding mixes!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work primarily from my home studio, my laptop runs Reason 8 as my DAW, and I monitor through KRK Rokit 8's as well as Audiotechnica ath-m50x studio headphones. My control room is fitted with sound difusers for an optimal listening / recording environment. I use a number of midi controllers including a Samson Graphite 49 and Akai MPC rensissance
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by such a huge spectrum of artists and technicians, including George Martin, Paul McCartney, Kanye West, DJ Premier, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Brian Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, the list is endless, typical, and always growing.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly work as a producer and mixing engineer for clients, creating melodies / beats / instrumentation for them, or mixing / editing their already recorded tracks.
