James S on SoundBetter

With 14+ years music production experience, I offer full ghost tracks and mixing service to get your tracks to a high professional level. No job too big or small. Releases incl. Sony, Spinnin' Records, Ultra, Toolroom, and I've had tracks played on BBC Radio 1, SKY, Capital, Netflix and tracks played by the top Dj's in the world.

I am based in Manchester (UK) and over the last 14 years and counting, I have developed a lot of skills in different genres such as EDM, Hip Hop, Pop, Trance, House & Trap. I specialize in House, Pop & Mainstream music as well as underground genres such as Techno, Tech-House, and Experimental Future/Rnb/Hip Hop

I offer a range of versatile skills to add to your tracks or I can create from scratch. I can make a full production around your initial song ideas, or if you need that extra 10% to get your track finished... I am your man! I offer unlimited revisions as I think it's important we get it right the first time...every time. I have never had an unhappy client

Whether you are a solo artist who needs a full pop production, a rapper who needs a beat made and mixed... I have extensive knowledge and experience to get you the sound you want. From making beats to mixing, to full finished productions... I can do it all.

I also have extensive experience of live playing, supporting acts such as "The Script", "James Arthur" & "Emilie Sande"

    I'm new to production and was looking for help with a remix. James helped me with the mix and gave me really helpful advice on how to take it to the next level. He was communicative and gave helpful advice that I was able to easily understand and is going to be helpful in progressing my future mixes. Highly recommend.
