Hi, I'm Daniel Garner! I specialize in various styles of dance, pop, and hip hop music production- including songwriting, top-line, mixing, mastering, sound design. Making music on my own for the last decade has taught me how to save time, and manifest my creative vision with full control. I am confident I can help guide your project to completion.
With the main purpose of Club Evil being an electronic music label, I'm passionate about finding unique and excited projects to take on- be it a full song from scratch or just a simple mix. I enjoy working closely with artists to find the sound they're after, offering 3 revisions, and pro quality at a fair price.
Let's talk about your next project!

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I provide punchy grooves, catchy melodies, and a unique taste in sound selection.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually begin by gathering all the info and references I need to start the framework of a song. I listen carefully for what my clients are after and we discuss the projects direction in detail. Once we have an idea going, I like to finish arranging the song as soon as possible to avoid hiccups down the line. When it comes time to record vocals, I am thorough with my takes and I aim to capture the most emotion possible in each phrase. After recording I compile the best takes and move on to pitch and time correction in Melodyne. The client and I discuss the lead vocal during editing, making sure it sounds as intended. From here, it is time for mixdown and any final additions to the song like transitions, replacing sounds, effects, and so on. This is where I offer 3 revisions so that we get the mix as close to perfect as possible before the mastering process. When mastering, I analyze the song on multiple systems and environments, using high grade software and hardware tools to put that finishing "polish" or "sheen" on your track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in an acoustically treated studio in downtown Los Angeles with all the equipment necessary for recording vocals and instruments, mixing, mastering, and advanced sound design using hardware synthesizers.

A: Richard Devine, Thomas Bangalter, SOPHIE, Squarepusher, Quincy Jones, Andrew Scheps
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I primarily do full production for my clients, but I am happy to mix, master, or vocal edit among other things.
