I absolutely LOVED working on Death Beach's dope track. Great originality and great production quality. It was a breeze to find inspiration and I love all of what Death Beach brings to the table. He was very clear with what he was looking for and I'm glad that I met his standards. He also graciously gave me some cool tips that I will use moving forward. Really talented and very solid dude.
Death Beach is a true pro. From top down he can create ANY type of production that you need. His understanding of multiple genres, music in general, sound design and mixing make him a true asset to have. Great communication. Quick and efficient. Super easy and fun to work with. Will def work with him again.
Death Beach is an amazing producer/musician. He listened to my ideas with an open mind and made sure I was completely satisfied with the final product. I particularly enjoyed his knowledge and execution of multiple genres, which was important to me. He was professional, always on time, and easy to talk with. I would work with him in the future!
Amazing talented Mixing Engineer, Listened to all my feedbacks, understood my vision and what I wanted the tracks to sound like from the beginning, I appreciated how direct he was, and he was a great communicator. I love the mix and the movement in the track, I can't wait to get it mastered.
I am so pleased with the work Death Beach did on my song. He turned a basic idea into an amazing track that exceeded my expectations. Will 100% work on future tracks with him.
DB is one of the best engineers. I feel like anyone can say that they are the best, but DB is one of those people that goes above and beyond, and actually genuinely cares about the music and the message and sound that YOU are looking for. From sending me quick little vids to help with chord progressions, to chatting on the phone to get the perspective I was going for, he was always willing to help. Definitely would recommend to get him on your track to get your music to where you want it to be.
Death Beach is one of the most versatile and imaginative producers I've ever worked with! His mixes make your vocals sound crisp and the music really comes to life. If you're looking for a comfortable and productive work environment, he's the guy for you.
Highly recommended. I am very pleased with Death Beach . My original song lyric video "In Its Time" that Death Beach produced is amazing, creative and I love it !
Death Beach is amazing to work with. Confident, very professional, great with communication. Sending another original song project lyric video "Reborn " soon !
Death Beach is amazing to work with. Extremely professional and great with communication. Highly recommend working with him!
