Paul Dalkowski on SoundBetter

Musicproducer & Songwriter - looking at music from a songwriters' perspective!

You're in need of a producer who understands your needs?
I'm an artist first, with 8+ years of experience in musicproduction and 11 years in songwriting, I can get your music to feel the way you want it to feel.

But I'm not the type of person to talk big words over actions; if you want to know whether I am the right producer for you, just take twenty seconds out of your day and take a listen to one of the songs I make as an artist.

Here's a link to a playlist I made for you:

If you like the vibe, you'll love what I will do with your song!
So don't hesitate to reach out!

Looking forward to be in contact with you

    Hired Paul just listening to the a single track on soundbetter, it has so much soul and warmth. Working with him was a great pleasure and some learning experience aswell. Hes very patient and listens to your needs, concerns and delivers exactly. Would definitely work with him again in the coming days.

Interview with Paul Dalkowski

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

  2. A: I mostly work on sad/chill & atmospheric stuff

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Mostly digital; roughly 1500$ worth in Kontakt Libraries, Serum, Sylenth1, ~2500$ worth of FX-plugins (Fabfilter Mastering Suite, Gullfoss etc.) and a couple hundred dollars worth of splice samples/presets & credits. Besides that, a midi keyboard by midistart, an epiano, guitar & ukulele, Senheiser HD 25-1 headphones, Sony XM5 headphones, Mackie CR-X monitors.

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

  6. A: I ghostproduced, mixed and mastered a future bass track from scratch with now over 100.000 streams on Spotify. It's the second most streamed track of that artist to date.

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

  8. A: What do you definitely want the track to be? What do you definitely NOT want the track to be?

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

  10. A: Do your best to communicate. If you know what you want but I don't, we'll just be running in circles, trying to catch up to each other's train of thought.

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

  12. A: Yoe Mase because he massively influenced what I do and still does so to this day. Also Sia; she's cool.

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

  14. A: Always know what the most important instrument at any given time is and act accordingly. There can only be one thing in the foreground, may that be a guitar, a vocal or a synth. The easiest way to destroy a good song is to have two different dominant instruments play different melodies at the same time.

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

  16. A: The full package, if necessary: melodies, chords, lyrics, sounddesign/soundselection, mixing & mastering.

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

  18. A: I typically start by writing a melody (either for the chorus or the verse), then I build chords around it. As soon as the first section is kind of done, I move on to the next section to keep a similar energy. Then I start adding details, earcandy etc.. Once everything is finished, I do a final mixdown.

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

  20. A: Billie Eilish, Yoe Mase, Xan Griffin, Alec Benjamin, Vorsa

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

  22. A: Full song productions (also including writing instrumental melodies and mixing) for singers in the pop/electronic pop genre.
