Dutch producer with 10 years experience in dance music production. A smart blend of EDM and Rock vibes with both organic and electronic elements.
Hi, I'm Nielsen, a franco-dutch producer with almost 10 years of extensive experience in music production and I had the chance to be mentored by Gregor Salto, Mesto and Tony Romera who are leading dance music artists.
I can do any EDM-related style with superb chart-topping quality and with creative originality (I signed my own songs on labels like Big Alliance USA, Ensis Records, 5howtime Music and have been spotted in the Beatport and Soundcloud top charts) and rock attitude. One of my songs has been played by Timmy Trumpet.

3 ReviewsEndorse NIEL↯EИ
NIEL↯EИ has helped me so much with my productions. He gives extremely detailed and specific feedback on how I can take my mixes to the next level. He is very knowledgeable and thorough.
Platinum DJ, awesome production skills, king of club music! Awesome quality, you just won a loyal customer, we'll multiply the partnerships!
Great work Nielsen! Just signed my first track on Axtone Records (the label of Axwell) thanks to your help! Highly recommended :)
Interview with NIEL↯EИ
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Good is good, right? Sometimes I surprise myself recording guitars through amp simulations while I got a thousand-bucks tube amp and love the result depending on the song. It's not rare for me to process my synths through old guitar pedals while I got loads of VST that can achieve more advanced results... But in the end, it doesn't even matter (reference to a Linkin Park song) cause the good sound is the sound you like. Listeners absolutely don't care about the plugins and gear you used, they only view what their mind draws from your music and how your message affects their own emotions, beliefs and memories.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: The first step before seeking a producer for hire is to know where you go. Professionals can help you define goals and adapt to your style, but there's one thing they can't handle: creating your universe. So, you have to craft your style, your sound and universe - and most important - it should fit your actual personality, just don't be someone else than yourself. When you know where you go, then we're here to help you reach your goals
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Well, I can't name my style but that's actually a clever blend of dance music (mostly future house, rave and bass music) and rock styles I'm listening since my childhood (AC/DC, Nirvana, Metallica, Green Day, U2...). It's a fairly common practice for me to incorporate roaring guitars and drumrolls in my personal stuff. Most people know me as a club DJ, but I'm actually a one-man rock band in the studio. So far, I've recorded more jam sesh than I actually used in my productions
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: "Destroy Everything" (in reference to the metal band Hatebreed track). Best things happen by accident, so don't be shy with extreme experiments, from the sound design to the mixing. You can read everywhere that you can't place a distortion after a reverb because it will sound totally garbage, why garbage would be a bad thing? Good garbage's always better than poor imitations
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I'm pretty eclectic when it comes to listening to music, and so it is when I produce music. I worked on various styles ranging from rap to rock and from techno to dubstep, but most of the time EDM and Rock music are dominating my prod sessions
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm listening to music of all genres all the time, no matter if it's a completely unknown backyard rock band or a superstar DJ. I believe that more than skills and talent, this specific point makes one of my best strengths in producing music because I can write a future house track while being inspired by a hardcore punk song, that's actually a fantastic world of inspiration when you don't limit yourself to a few music styles/artists you like.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Well, there are 3 main elements that people said I added to their work: → attention to detail with high-level techniques → authenticity with organic and live elements → aesthetic with an original sound design
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: 1. understanding you and your universe (to better fit your style) 2. focusing on your main goals and going beyond (proactive) 3. delivering high-value content (as I would do for myself)
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: ☑ Ableton Live suite ☑ Serum, Spire, Sylenth1, Massive... ☑ iZotope Mix & Master suite ☑ Softube console 1 fader ☑ 5 electric guitars, a dobro and a bass guitar ☑ Marshall and Fender tube amps ☑ midi keyboard, launchpad and v-drums ☑ Genelec 8010A monitoring
