Hi, I'm Aresz a trance and progressive producer from Cape Town South Africa. I have tracks released on Enhanced Music and Elliptical Sun Recordings. Most of my tracks has seen support from like of Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Sunny Lax, Tom Fall, Myon, Shane 54, W&W, Andrew Rayel, Cosmic Gate, Morgan Page, Fatum and many more...
I enjoy teaching people about music production. When I first started, it was difficult to find help from established artists and understand the struggles of a new producer. I am happy to tutor you in Ableton Live and help you get up to speed with the current tracks released on big labels these days.
Being inspired by Mat Zo, Andrew Bayer, Fatum and Sunny Lax, I have focused my time on learning how these guys create those insane basslines as well as those lush breakdowns heard on many Anjunabeats tracks.
Use that contact button to hear more from me and how I can help you as a producer.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: For me, basslines, it is something I have been experimenting with a lot lately
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I love crazy basslines as you can see by the artists that inspire me. I usually start with the bassline and get inspired on the rest of the track from there. I sometimes start with the break first if I have an idea/feel inspired. I never use the same sounds for my basslines and leads (from previous tracks), I always start off free which helps me grow as an artist.
