WOW! What can I say about this man. His taste in what should be added to your song to make it sound like a finished record is one of the best I've encountered in the 10 years I've been working in the music industry. He falls under the category "young legend" for me. DIBS! Thanks For making my so ready for the world to hear, I appreciate you and look forward to working with you much more in the future.
Dibs did a great job, very responsive and is definitely a master at his craft - thank you!
What more can you say apart from incredible! Working with Dibs is an absolute pleasure, his professionalism and quality are priceless and he always smashes expectation!
Couldn't recommend enough!
Dibs is an absolute pleasure to work with. He knew exactly what sound I was going for and was able to help me cross the finish line with my mix. Will absolutely use his services again.
Forget everyone else, this is where the gold is. True professional of his craft and unique sonic understanding. Detail and perfection oriented, couldn’t have asked for a better result. Also did I mention he is the nicest person? Thank you so much!
Dibs was great to work with, patient and positive and very easy to communicate with. He worked on the song until I was completely happy with it and made it sound professional and polished!
I really can't say enough about this guy - so talented, creative. I needed him to fully produce a song I wrote and he made the most excellent track, oversaw the vocal production which was impeccable and was able to create something original yet perfect for the sound of my other work. He is easy to communicate with, enthusiastic and a pleasure all around. I'm so grateful to have found him and look forward to working together on more. Highest recommendation.
DIBS, what a guy. You are the most caring producer I have ever worked with, you completely care about who you work with. Thank you for being so patient me with me and bringing my pop song to life. It sounds exactly how I wanted it and I believe in it even more now. I wish someone had of pushed me in your direction sooner because you made me feel so comfortable sharing my silly ideas . Thank you so very much. XX
So impressed with Dibs, it's insane to find someone who is able to create a sound you're looking for without really knowing them. But I guess that's no longer the case lol. I was dreading working remotely, sending a demo without a lot of discussion about things I'm picky about and what can I say. I got beyond lucky with Dibs. Aside from the obvs technical skill, his artistry is immaculate. Organic and electronic balance and synchronicity. Hope I have the privilege of working with him again
professional at work. I'm really content with an experienced and fine finishing of the new upcoming song. Great and fast collaboration and the song was completed on a quick schedule. I recommend and cooperation continues
Dibs was great to work with. Always on top of getting back to me in timely fashion. He elevated my song and gave it the fullness I was looking for! With such quality and professionalism can't wait to work with him again!
Dibs is extremely professional and patient. I approached him to help spice up my song because I loved the sound of Lostboy's "Waste Your Time," and needless to say I was not disappointed. Not only that, Dibs is extremely down to earth and approachable. Definitely one of the best producers I've worked with!
Literally made my song come to life. 3rd time working with DIbs and am sooo happy with the end product. Wouldn't stop until I was extremely satisfied with the song:) Would definitely work a thousand more times with him!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Dibs was amazing, listened to what I was trying to acheive, and spent the time to make that come to life - on the firdt go around I might add.
In every sense of the matter, dibs is one of the best producers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Highly reccomend!! Will be working with Dibs again in the future!
It was so awesome working with Dibs on mastering my song! He brings a amazing vibe to your project. Looking forward to working with him again in the near future !
I had roughly thrown together something that could somewhat resemble a demo of a song, and decided to take a leap of faith and get a professional producers hands on it. When Dibs sent me the first draft of my song, it genuinely brought me to tears. He took a demo that I really wasn’t sure was gonna become anything good, and turned it into a piece of art that I will cherish forever. If you’re looking for an amazing producer with an incredibly warm energy, go with dibs. You won’t regret it!
Dibs is a true pro at what he does, an absolute pleasure to work with him!
Dibs is super professional!
Response, musical skills knowledge... everything is so trustworthy.
I was really amazed how he recognize what I want exactly and
made my image into actual track with HUGE energy!!
That's not what everybody can do. Needs deep understandings about various musical knowledges and human beings.
Great capacity of musical talent, skill and personality.
Also I really appreciate his generousness to responded to my many small requests.
Definitely wanna ask him again!
Dibs is very good at what he's doing. Recommend!
amazing producer! made my debut single dream come true! thank you so much, will definitely work with again in the future! :D
Dibs did a great job! He put in the effort and care in my track, as though it was his own track and that’s just what I look for when dealing with producers.
Awesome producer! It's been a pleasure working with Dibs. He's very talented and has a sixth sense in terms of what a modern track needs to have. You won't regret working with him. 100% recommended!
Super helpful and fast! Incredibly patient and didn't mind tweaking small things to 100% accommodate me! Clear, transparent communication and all 'round just a great experience! :)
I had Dibs master song tracks for me and they came out sounding excellent. The best thing about working with Dibs is you can put trust in his talent and results.
This guy is insane. Would recommend 100%. I came to him with a track which needed elements bringing to life and boy did he do that!
Can’t wait to work again. Insane talent!
Dibs is the ultimate producer with a perfect ear for a briliant sound and mastery to bring a song to life. He not just engineers but also listens to the songwriter, spends time understanding the songs origins and creates something magical to elevate it. He puts his heart into his work that echoes throughout as patience and dedication. As a person, Dibs is golden and has one of the biggest hearts in the music industry. I am floored by his empathy and spirit for music and the people involved.
Dibs was SO GOOD at mixing and mastering my song! I told him what I was looking for and how I wanted my song to sound like and he delivered EVERYTHING I asked for and MORE. He was super professional and nice. I recommend him 100%!
As per usual the final product was amazing! The vocal production was 150%. A great talent who knows exactly what to do. Effortless everytime.
Great to work with. Innovative, and very talented
David is such a talented producer and did an AMAZING job in executing the vision for the song we made! He's super fun to work with and puts in a lot of effort to help you achieve exactly what you want to. I'm so proud of the song we made and can't wait to work with him again!
Incredible work exactly what we discussed and more. Delivered the project really fast, definitely a 10/10 job well done.
Dibs was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was able to create the sound that I was looking for and completely exceed my high expectations. I definitely recommend Dibs to anyone!
Dibs did vocal production for my track and hit it out of the park after the first version he sent. Had it done in a day or two. Professional, fast, and the track sounds amazing. Definate recommend and will be working with him again!
Dibs was amazing to work with. As a first time working with a producer from a distance I was a bit nervous, but Dibs took all the notes, patiently making the changes until we had the finished track which we are extremely proud of. He was quick to reply, easy to work with and professional. Would definitely work with him again! Thanks Dibs!
INCREDIBLE! Exceeded every expectation. I cannot recommend ENOUGH! I took the risk and used sound better for a whole EP without any other prior knowledge and I am EXTREMELY lucky I made the choice to go with Dibs. I could go on and on but when we finished up the songs I'd never felt so at ease and accomplished. If you are even considering just stop and make the choice to work with Dibs. There is so many people in the industry trying to take advantage at every second and Dibs is NOT one of them.
I've been producing music for over 10 years, hit #3 in iTunes, and had over 11,000,000 video views online. With my most recent song I needed someone to help me cross the finish line so I reached out to Dibs. His talent was exceeded only by his promptness and professionalism. He took my track from 80% to 110% on the first stab. I can't recommend him enough.
Making a song can be an emotional and tricky experience. In that respect, Dibs is typically the kind of professional you hope to fall upon. He is with you every step of the way to bring your tracks to life, the way you had intended to. Super open-minded to all details, serious multi-genre skills, very creative and most of all, such a kind human being. He's amazing to work with and would recommend it to anyone, anytime!
dude. i cannot stress enough how talented dibs is. he is intuitive, a careful listener, prompt, and diligent. i am typically a control freak when it comes to my music, but i literally just let him do his thing and trust him completely. grateful i found him.
Dibs has been amazing to work with - very keen sense of pop sensibility, song structure and sonic quality to optimize track for modern radio format. He has been open and flexible while being extremely creative in a refined way to bring high level musicality to the production. He also has a superb finesse with vocal sounds which bus so important. Dibs is an wonderful person to work with who is both sensitive to the artist and professional in his work ethic. Highly recommended!
Awesome to work with!
If you had to describe Dibs in one word, I would say "world class". I have worked with many very good people in the EDM field, but Dibs has definitely brought my project to the level that is expected by listeners & fans today. Therefore I can absolutely recommend him!
This is the first time I reached out to a really high end professional producer – I was lucky to choose Dibs. He is very down to earth and professional and I am super stoked on how he took the song to the next level while keeping the soul of it. I also learned a couple of very useful things along the way! Highfive man!!
Dibs is dopeeeeee. Super talented producer, very easy to work with- was able to totally understand our feedback and notes and make appropriate adjustments. Will definitely be working with him again!
i'm so stoked that i found dibs. he is the real deal. an insanely talented producer. he is a professional who knows exactly what he is doing. trust him and pick him. now. go go go
He nailed it! Super talented and a pleasure to work with.
Amazing work and very professional!
David did such an amazing job!!! The song came out perfectly the way I wanted it to be and his creativity with this production was on a whole other level! Great experience with him and would definitely come back again:)

Great work and very professional !! :)
When I first joined SoundBetter, I wasn’t sure what to expect regarding the caliber of talent. Dibs is top notch and the real deal. An incredible producer, he’s patient and incredibly easy to work with. He’s only happy when you’re happy. I will absolutely be working with him again.
I really love working with Dibs! I’m a new artist and he helped me find a sound/style that was authentically me. Dibs is VERY involved!
Seriously very responsive and always on top of things. He put a lot of work into getting my song to feel timeless and polished and current. He had really good suggestions for layout and composition as well.
Would really recommend if you want someone who can take your song to the next level and bring out the potential of your vision :)
Working with Dibs has been one the best and smoothest collaborations I've experienced as an artist. He truly gets what's in your head and keeps working until you LOVE what you hear, knowing exactly how to make vocals shine along with the production of the song. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to make their musical dreams come true and sound the best they can!! :)
Great experience with Dibs!
He's super talented and was extremely easy to work with!
Looking forward to working with him again :)
Dibs has truly exceeded himself on this latest song of mine. He's fast to reply, very considerate and listens to your creative narrative. His production, mixing and mastering are all so clean and his passion for music illuminates from his work. I'm truly ecstatic to see what else we can create next time we work together.
I've worked with Dibs a few times and will definitely work with him again! He's super talented and makes totally radio ready, creative sounds. Also super fun and easy to work with.
David is an extremely nice guy with a lot of knowledge and experience.
Always very fast responding and ready to work!
There is no need to write more about skills he has---> just listen short portfolio here, check all credits and press _contact button :) ..
Enthusiastic, Passionate and a total G. Pop music comes naturally for him and the beat was absolutely killer. Catchy and great vibes.
Great fun working with Dibs. Turnaround for mix and master was really quick and he easily figured out what needed to be done to make the track finished and ready for release!
I had a great experience with Dibs!
Dibs is just listening to what we ask and adapts very easily to the universe we offer. I love working with him

Dibs is such an easy person to work with! He set me up with a clear picture of what he wanted from me, and was very organized and quick to respond! Was one of the best experiences I’ve had working with someone!
Once again, good quality and very creative.
Dibs delivered another great production on schedule.
Wanted to have some changes in the arrangement
and some additional melody added, both were done excellent
and within a short period of time.
Communication was good like always.

Dibs was extremely easy to work with! Looking forward to more projects in the future.
Best of luck!
Very reliable guy, I love working with Dibs I presented him with an idea of a type of genre I had no equipment for and he aced it! I highly recommend him!
Dibs is a great producer to work with.
He knows what needs to be done to give you a very creative and high quality production. Delivers on time, is good at following your requests and keeps you updated during the process.
Looking forward to working with him again.
Really awesome to work with, I am usually picky as hell when it comes to mixes and master projects but he really made the track hit hard! He is very receptive when it comes to feed back as well, I definitely recommend him!
Worked with Dibs a handful of times and would recommend to anyone! His sound design is impeccable and ear for melodies excellent. He is easy- going and fun to work with! I will definitely be doing more collaborations with Dibs!
Dibs is a fantastic producer to collaborate with. He understood right away the sound I was going for and was able to help me cross the finish line with my mix. He is also such a pleasure to communicate with. I will absolutely go back to him for future work.
I sent Dibs my half written pop song and he was so patient with me, he made it sound exactly how I wanted it to sound and he didn't rush me .I've worked with a lot of producers all over the place and he is by far the most down to earth , patient out of them all. He CARES and that is really important for any musician when it comes to sharing your creativity. I highly recommend working with him and I cant wait to work with him again. Thanks for making the Pandemic more fun for me :-). I'm "So Glad".
I'm doublin down on my rave review of Dibs because he continues to impress me with both his ability in the studio and his professionalism. The combination of Dibs' genuine interest, understanding, and appreciation of my sound/music and his instincts as an engineer really set him apart and I will more than likely be working with him a third time if he'll have me!
Dibs made my dreams come true with my debut single "White Lies" and i am beyond pleased with the results! he is insanely talented, and i will definitely be working with him again.
Thank you so much, for real. :)
Dibs is the dude! Genuinely wants your project to sound the very best it can, which comes with a great deal of patience and professionalism. He knew the exact sound I was going for with reference artists he called out and expressed the same level of enthusiasm and passion for the tune that I did, which made him the obvious choice for the job. The final product sounded awesome and he even followed up to stream it on Spotify despite the fact he had already heard it hundreds of times! Great guy, super talented, recommend him to the moon!
DIBS was amazing to work with start to finish. I had the absolutely pleasure of cutting my vocals with him in person in Los Angeles and learning so much more about me and my voice under his tutelage. He made every major and minor change I wanted along with adding his own flare to the track that now for me, makes the whole track work perfectly. Next level producer but also a next level guy and that's so rare to find in this industry. - Kid Hudson
Great experience working with David (Dibs)! He is very knowledgeable in music and really delivers on the results he promises. We asked him for help with vocal production and mixing/mastering, and we couldn’t be happier with the way the final product turned out! He was also very patient with us as it was our first time recording vocals for a song.
Furthermore, he got on a 30min phone call with me and gave me some really great tips when it comes to making music and navigating the industry. I left that call not only feeling informed and inspired, but also like I gained a new friend and mentor!
Dibs is an Amazing producer! I met with many producers looking for someone that could help me create a current, polished professional sound that would be ready for the radio, and that is exactly what I found with Dibs. He is a complete professional and a one stop shop for creating top level music. Not only has the music been amazing but the process of making the music with Dibs has been really fun and exciting. He really creates a comfortable creative space and really cares about capturing the vision for the music. I am so proud of the music we've made, and I highly recommend him!!!
Love working with Dibs! Very talented producer, easy to work with and great communication. Highly suggest!
Total pro right here. Dibs is super experienced, and is super easy to work with. He is super creative and makes the songs come to life. Great communicator and great turnaround speed. Highly recommend working with him if you want your project to be excellent!
Interview with Dibs
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Production and Mixing. Taking any form of an idea and translating it to a professional sounding song.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm really inspired by people who incorporate different influences to make something new. A few good examples are Max Martin, the 1975, Bon Iver, Tove Styrke, the Chainsmokers, and many more.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: The most commonly used pieces of my set-up are an Apollo 8, 1176 Compressor, Manley Reference Mic, and Adams A8X Monitors. I commonly use a variety of guitars and hardware synths for production.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first thing I do in any project is learn where the artist is coming from on a musical and sonic level. This helps me to understand how to navigate a project that are in terms are the artist's ultimate vision. After that, I believe in working closely with an artist through every step of the project, and not stopping until we get the project to a place they are really excited about.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A breadth of experience in multiple genres at a professional, competitive level. I've worked in music full time in New York and LA for the last 10 years, so I've worked with just about every kind of artist imaginable. I know how to take influences an artist has and create a new, exciting sound.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I would say most people would be surprised the amount of time and work it takes to reach a competitive sound as a producer or mixer. The truth is that you have to be willing to sacrifice a lot and usually work 7 days a week if you want to succeed.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: There's no "one question" that I commonly get, but just more of the overall process of a song at a professional level.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Helping artists achieve their vision. I got into music because I've been obsessed with music my whole life. If I can help an artist make a song or an album that's better than they've ever dreamt- that's the best feeling in the world.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: You will love and be excited about the final product because I will not stop working at it until you do :)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! Learning analog helps to understand why digital works the way it does, and what the processes are based upon. A good mix of both helps to use the strengths of both worlds.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Plenty of people! Just ask what you're looking for.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm a full time producer and mixer, so that's changing weekly. I have a lot of songs in the hands of large artists that are always rolling out through the year.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Soap by Melanie Martinez really surprised me. I produced it along with a close peer, and while we loved the song, we had no idea it would get as big as it did. It was also my first song to go platinum, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A game-changing production tip I learned from Deadmau5 was to use a Multiband Compressor on your bass. Activate one band to cover the sub-frequencies, and turn the ratio to ∞:1. This will allow your sub frequencies to be more controlled and hit more consistently, even when the notes are changing.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is tenacity. I won't stop working on a project until everyone who is on that project is excited about it, no matter how much work that takes.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work under the 'pop' umbrella a lot, which usually consists of a lot of different genres. I am in sessions daily writing new songs from nothing, so my job is to find a feeling, and create a song that encapsulates that.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: My dream artist to work with at the moment is the 1975. They are currently one of the most exciting acts to me because they are doing something different than everyone else.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is a mix of organic and electronic. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and a DJ, so I love combining those two worlds to create something new.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Out of college, I started working as an engineer in a studio in Manhattan. On my days not at the studio, I'd be working as a producer + songwriter with a variety of artists. After a few years, I was consistently flying out to Los Angeles to work with a lot of LA-based artists, so I decided to move to Los Angeles full time. I currently am based out of LA, and have been music at a professional level for 10 years.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, Electric Guitar, Apollo, Midi Keyboard, and Adams Monitors. Between the real instruments and the computer, I'd have access to nearly all sounds I'd need to write and produce.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I'm often told that an artist thinks they 'can't afford me' because of my experience. My best advice would be to reach out! I try to work with budgets, and I have a large network of other people that I can recommend, if that doesn't work.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I really like to know a client's tastes and purpose. Who inspires them? Why are they releasing music? There are different ways to work for different outcomes like for radio, to go viral, etc.
