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 worked with Russell, he is so professional and a great musician, he understood what I wanted for my song and he has great ideas, he knows a lot about the music field, and he is very talented,
