I produce music and write and record my vocals (available for features) at a high speed and quality. Turn around for vocal features can be discussed as quick as needed. Production is dependent on the record but also quick!
I can produce a song or a larger project like an album for you.
I specialise in Hip Hop, EDM, Alternative, Electronic and Pop, however I've played and written in many genres including Classical, Orchestral, Jazz, Latin and Rock.
I am happy to work according to any direction, creating simple or complex tracks.
I also offer vocal features.
I release a lot of music produced by myself with my vocals, and many of my tracks mixed and mastered by myself, but I am now specialising in music production and vocals.
If you work with me I will only be giving my best.

Interview with Vidorra
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: - A vocalist / artist may come to me wanting to create a song (or an EP / album). We will discuss what they would like to do and then I will produce a piece of music for them (NOT mixed and mastered). - A vocalist / artist may come to me with a song idea, or half made song, and I will finish it producing a full song (NOT mixed and mastered). - I can provide a vocal feature written and recorded by myself for any artist's song, regardless of genre. I release a lot of music with my vocals and enjoy doing vocal features a lot, and am extremely humbled to be invited onto another artist's music. - I sound engineer / record vocals for artists I work closely with and who live nearby, however this will not be a form of online collaboration, but it is something I do fairly regularly.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I think I bring excitement. I never hold back on an idea, I'd always like to run with it, and put all my effort behind it. My previous ideas of what I 'liked' and 'disliked' about music has changed a lot, and I seem to warm more to effort and nuances of songs rather than their general style, meaning I enjoy much more music!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Creating fun music and being prolific.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I specialise in music based around Hip Hop, Pop, EDM, Electronic, Alternative, and a little Pop Rock. Mainly things based around electronic sounds, but really anything. Recently I've been making a lot of real drum and guitar tracks, recorded myself. If I'm producing for you, we can discuss what you've come to me looking for and proceed accordingly. My best skills in production generally have an electronic base.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Fun , Experimental, Rhythmic, but eventually, Pop!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am 20 years old and have been playing instruments for 13 years, producing for 7 years and recording my vocals for 3 years. I got into music early out of my own choice, and things just snowballed. By the age of 12 I waned to run a record label, not truly knowing what that entailed, but knowing I wanted to be deep into music creation with others.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To communicate as much as possible and be open to collaboration as if there were two artists - themselves and the provider. I adopt this approach when collaborating and the results are always amazing, and enjoyable. I learnt quite early on that my ideas aren't the best ideas simply because I came up with them - It's good to be open like a book and run with it!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I video document most of my studio sessions these days and post full length studio videos online on YouTube, so I don't really feel many misconceptions of what I'm doing these days. It simply is what it is and I think anyone who wants to find out can see!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I don't truly know what is going to happen during the song creation process, and I like to keep it that way! The excitement!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That if we do work together I will be doing all that I can to create a beautiful piece of art. Any work I get involved with becomes my own too and I will treat it that way. I have no intention of half - heartedly doing work.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on on - going projects, producing for a number of artists, but mainly my own albums, as I release large volumes of music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: - Diplo inspires me as he is involved in a vast range of projects with differing styles on a global scale. - Mura Masa's unique production style and attention to detail. - Young Thug's vocal style.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: sE Electronics GEMINI II Microphone, Focusrite Saffire Pro (audio interface), Adam's A7 (Monitors), Macbook Pro (Laptop), Logic Pro (DAW), lots of Native Instruments software, and lots of drum and FX samples! I produce on headphones a lot as I like to hear everything at a low volume to see the bigger picture regularly.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: - For my own music I generally am daily producing new instrumental ideas, and from them I will pick certain instrumentals that caught my ear and write and record vocals on them, and then proceed to outsource them to be mixed and mastered, or do it myself. It's a very fluid process and happen sin quick succession. Sometimes a complete song will be completely finished from scratch within 48 hours.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Experiment like there's no right answer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Mura Masa because his production is so intricately beautiful yet so approachable to everyone, even your average irregular listener!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop with Logic Pro, My headphones, My Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 SoundCard, my Condenser Mic, and my speakers. I know I haven't been too specific with gear, but it's more about having my essentials for me - Just having the ability to create the music is enough for me! That's where the fun begins!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: If they truly have something in mind in very specific terms - Do they just want to make a song and have no idea where they're going yet (which is great too!), or do they have a reference song that they basically want to model off. I like to know exactly where the client's mind is at, and I would encourage them to communicate things to me without my asking! They should attempt to put me in their mind, especially if what they want is specific. This is because as a producer, I would like to have free reign to run wherever I want, but if I don't know the direction, this can lead to a lot of upset from the client if we're constantly scraping ideas and restarting. It's important to remember that no one is a mind - reader!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you make a song like this?" The answer is usually yes!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like both, I've mainly used digital but I think both have their place. I don't feel the need to choose in a final way! Digital is great because of the easy access and portability. I have very very little experience is analog.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Mickey Shiloh is a great vocalist I have worked with twice.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I look at my own artist project as an on - going project that I am proud of - it'll forever be unfinished - until I die or stop making music, but I see it as one large album in a way, and I enjoy putting effort into it. My role has been the music producer and vocalist, and for a large amount of time, the mix and mastering engineer, but I enjoy specialising in music production and vocals now.
