Sound Design is one of my core strengths when it comes to music production. I have had my mentorship from artists associated with Icon Collective, Mau5trap, Capital Records, and Future Classics.
I can produce you a full song, co-produce your song, add vocals, song-write, and give you a piece of music that will stand out.
I create all of my own original sounds from layering, synthesizers, plug-in VST's and Audio Recordings. I am offering my production services for full songs, ghost production with full exclusive rights, sound design, arrangement, mixing/mastering, melodies, and chord progressions (tiered for both EDM and/or Hip Hop).
Vocal Services include: Top Lines, Hooks, Choruses, Autotune, Mixing, Tuning, and Arrangement.
All collaborations are anonymous/uncredited unless approved.
Free samples will NOT be offered.
First half payment is non-refundable due to time spent on job.
2 free revision sessions are acceptable.
After revisions if the entire track needs to be re-worked there is a $250 fee (for example if you want to change the key of the song, new chord progression, or new mix/master).
I have been producing music using Ableton Live for the past 10 years. I live in West Hollywood, CA, born and raised in Vancouver, WA.
Looking forward to working with you soon!

Clyde is a great producer, and has a very good sense of music design. I am very excited to work with him again and put vocals on the beat he made me. Can't recommend him enough. One of the best in the business.

Always a pleasure to work with!
Clyde produced an amazing track on my new album, and as soon as I heard the original idea I knew it would be a great fit! Very talented producer and sound designer! We've worked in the past before this, and again I would highly recommend.

Did a Vocal Drop for Clyde and it turned out awesome! I'm writing an album right now and i'm hoping to get some production from him as well. Everything I've heard so far sounds awesome, and I know he'd be a great addition to it. Really professional, and would highly recommend him to anyone in the hip hop/ electronic world.
Clyde really delivered on our sound design project. He's a very tasteful sound designer with a unique sound, delivering some great synth patches and drum kits. Highly recommended!
I’ve been working with Clyde for a while now, and every time it’s like butter. He has a keen ear for what’s trending, and at the same time can make productions that are definitely unique and distinctive. I very highly recommend working with him!
One of the most talented producers I've worked with on this website. I'm working on my first personal album right now and Clyde has helped me basically perfect it. If you're looking for top notch production then this is your guy.
Top of the line producer! The quality of the tracks you delivered was outstanding. Out team loved it. Also the turn around time was unexpected. We will definitely be working in the future!
Interview with Clyde Rivers
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Transviolet's "Tropics", I'm really proud to have worked on this project because these guys are so talented. My role was working on the production.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I'm working on my first EP.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Mickey Shiloh, she's a friend of mine I met a few years ago in LA and she referred me here. Reo Cragun, hard working superb vocalist and musician I've had the pleasure to work with many times. Edward Fasone, incredible singer, VERY quick lead time on projects
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Don't get me wrong, analog is great... theres nothing like just jamming out and having fun twisting some nobs, but my workflow process is lightyears faster working digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to clients, is that I'm not going to stop working on your project until I've met all your needs and you're happy with a great body of work.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I have a seriously addictive passion for music in general, getting to make it every day as a job is all I need to be happy.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How do I make the best track possible? Well, if you're here looking for help then you're already in a better position than most. Too many times people think they can do it all on their own, it takes more then one head to really make an incredible project.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that you can quickly grow to be amazing, greatness doesn't come over night. Getting through the journey is key and also the most fulfilling part of it all.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What kind of style are you going for? Do you have song references? How can I help make a solid piece of artwork for you?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My biggest piece of advice is making sure to really look around and not jump to the first provider because they meet the budget you have. Even if you work with someone, it always helps to give another provider a second look at your work to really meet your expectations.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: -Macbook Pro -Neumann Mic -Audio Technica Headphones -Keyboard MPK 49 -iPhone
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career path originally was to try and play professional baseball in college haha, but I fell quickly short of that and had already been DJing at the time. Now, after producing music for over a decade, I've been doing this full-time professionally for the past 4 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I think my style is pretty generic overall, I like to think I'm more of a Diplo in the EDM world, but a Kenny Beats in the pop/hip-hop world.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: One artist I'd love to work with is SAULT, their style isn't comparable to anyone I've listened to before, and they're always releasing some pretty crazy stuff.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: One production tip I can share is to never stop trying to learn new ways to produce music, even after a decade of production, I constantly still find myself watching copious amounts of YouTube tutorials.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually the music I do most of my work on includes pop, hop hip, and alternative.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is that I'm always going to deliver on time. I'm not a person that every lets something slip through the cracks.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: What I bring to a song is my ability to think outside the box. I'm always trying to use new techniques and try different tools on almost every project. No song I've ever made had been the same process, always fresh, always new.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process starts with you, my client. Usually I start by asking for references to whatever my client is looking for, whether its a specific genre or sound they're trying to achieve, or however I can accomodate to their needs best.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have two studios at home that I work out of. Both include 8 inch Yamaha monitors, Akai MPK 49 Keyboards (plus some), and a Neumann TLM microphone for recording. Ableton is my primary DAW, with a plethora of different audio VST plugins.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Currently, some of my favorite musicians that inspire me include acts like Flume, Reo Cragun, Zhu, Dominic Fike, and A.G. Cook.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do for my clients consists of writing new music for fully produced tracks. Often times, my clients ask me to provide a new beat from scratch to fit a vibe that they're going for.
