Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
Bright's track doing things and hes upcoming track. Me and a producer buddy of mine worked with him and produced the full track and Bright wrote the vocals. Just happy how it turned out and it was the first real hip/hop rap release i did.
What are you working on at the moment?
A couple of different songs with clients here from norway in my working studio. I have also helped with adding sounds on songs with different artists which will be released later this year.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Mickey S Songwriter and Demo vocalists. She wrote the chorus to a song i produced and it turned out great. She also has a lovely voice that fits in with modern tracks.
Analog or digital and why?
Digital because you can get the same results nowadays with the right plugins and it saves so much time. But in lack of inspiration i always love playing with analog synths and gear.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I dont give up until the result is a good song!
What do you like most about your job?
Working with new people and creating art!

What kind of music do you like, what kind of music do you want to make, and if they want me to take inspiration from a certain genre or artist.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
To have a vocal with lyrics ready to go is always much easier to work with for me, but i have no problem starting with just a verse / chorus or a basic idea!

Take the last note of your vocal or instrument in your project. Add a long reverb and more effects if you like. Bounce it and reverse it and you have a really cool and long sweep sound into the next section of your track.

Mostly various pop and electronic music but also acoustic music and chillout/ambient music that would fit into a film, game or tv program.

Sound selection/creation and bringing the right mood to a track.
What do you bring to a song?
A full modern production.
What's your typical work process?
I usually make a track from intro to the first chorus/drop and send it to a singer, and if the singer likes it then we take it from there. And sometimes i make a track from a vocal melody sent to me.
