I mean.. It could't go more smoother than this. Niklas is a phenomenal producer and mixer engineer. Got a turn around from him already after 1 day and at day 2 everything was finished. Amazing stuff! Thank you again Nik!
An absolute honor to work with Niklas. What I loved about him is that he really goes into the details. Pro!
I came across Niklas profile by accident from the front page. I listened to his reel and it was exactly what I was looking for. I sended him a very rough idea and he simply transformed it and took it to a whole other level.. Niklas is VERY professional and working fast. Will def use him in future. Thanks again man. BEAST! :)
Niklas is extremely talented and very easygoing to work with.

Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: 2018 I made 'I Wouldn't Lie'. Probably the favorite song of mine. I can't really pin-point why this one is so special but I think it has to be the vibe we all had when we were making it. It was such a amazing time with close friends of mine during the process. Loved every second of it!

A: Right now I have alot of new tracks coming up. One is actually being released this friday, called Emotions. Will be live on all platforms!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out when I was about 15 years old. 29 today! I Remember downloading FL Studio and I couldn't stop playing around with it. I had a vision that I would play infront of a large crowd singing to my songs. That dream came true when I visited Japan for the first time in 2016 and I played out my song 'Sparks' and everyone in the crowd was singing along to it. I don't take that for granted.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Very uplifting and melodic. I also want people to feel what I feel when I'm making my music.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Everything expect vocals! I'm a terrible singer haha!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It's often start out with an idea/melody i've been singing in my head. I try to make this idea into a fast demo in FL and then I countinue add more & more stuff. I mix alot during the process aswell because when it sounds clear and tight from start it's alot easier to build the track around that.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: DAW: I've been using FL Studio 20 for 10 years. Hardware: Macbook Pro 16 from 2021 together with Universal Audio - Apollo Twin DUO. Genelec 8040 Monitors & Arturia Midi Keyboard!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

A: The most common type of work I do for my clients is creating a song based on their ideas & vision. Making sure that they're 100% satisfied with it. It can also be: finish a song up from an rough idea or enhance/remix a song.
