Russell F on SoundBetter

I work with music artists to develop their ideas into great-sounding tracks. I will always try and do the unexpected.

I can make a full production around your demo song idea.

If you're a solo artist looking for band or pop production, I would be a good fit for you.

I'll mix and master your songs whether they are fully recorded elsewhere or music we have collaborated on.

I specialize in Pop, EDM but have also produced a lot of hip-hop, rap, rock, and world.

Pop, EDM, RnB, Rock, Indie, Trance, Deep House, Folk, Synthwave, Future Bass, Future House, Tropical, Trap, Techno, Tech House, Dubstep, and more!

I play guitar, piano, bass and sing but my strongest skill is programming and producing tracks from scratch.

    I've known Russell through a friend who referred him to me to record my song. He did the mastering on one of my original music that I recorded few years ago. And it sounds awesome! I'm impressed. I'm looking forward to collab and work together with him again on our next project. Awesome talent! πŸ‘πŸ‘
