I will create a radio friendly, release standard production with mix & master for you. Check out my examples to get a feel of what I can bring to your song.
UP AND COMING UK PRODUCER
My formative years in music production began working with legendary Hip-hop producer Rick St Hilaire (Busta Rhymes, Hootie & The Blowfish) in his LA studio on various artist releases.
During my time in LA I also had the pleasure of co-producing and working as a session bassist alongside Damon Elliot (Pink, Fat Albert Movie Score).
Since then, I have co-wrote/produced & remixed songs for various top 40 UK chart acts..
My work has found it's way into many TV & Ad campaigns both locally and nationally and I currently write and co-produce for my own project Van Den Wolfe.
My preferred style of writing/production is mainly funk influenced, but I am quite adept at adapting my ear to any genre.

Interview with Big Funk Productions
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I try to fully immerse myself into any project I'm involved in. To enable me to do this I need to ask you some questions about your vision for your song. Generally, an example track goes a long way to helping me get a handle on what you would like to achieve. After we have discussed this. I will go on to create 2 or 3 sample tracks around a minute in length around your vocal to show you as an example. Once you have given the OK to one of the sample tracks. I then I will create the track in full, implementing any specific requirements you have given me. This is a typical example of my work process but obviously some projects may require more flexibility!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on groove based stuff like funk, soul, disco, nu disco, house or hip hop. Anything that gets people wiling out in the club!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will endeavour to provide you with the best product possible. I also promise to provide the best service in doing so. That means being in communication with you throughout the process so we can both get the very best outcome for your production.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have a specific artist or a song you would like to use as a reference? Are there any specific melodies or sounds you would like me to use?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: The only advice I could give would be to be as clear as possible about what you want to achieve from the production. Don't be afraid to go into specifics when describing how you visualise your song. This helps to give me a better understanding of what you want and also provide the best service I can to you.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: All I wanted to do was play bass like Stuart Zender of Jamiroquai when I was in my teens and really, that motivation is what started my love affair with funk music and that instrument in particular. I haven't looked back since those days. Music has taken me all over the world and I have gotten to work with some top industry artists because of it, mainly studio and writing work. At 25, I really wanted to broaden my musical horizons by trying my hand at producing tracks, which I have been doing now for a decade, collaborating with various artists and record labels.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Yes! For me sound selection is one of the most important factors in your production, not only harmonically but in terms of eq'ing and mixing too. Get this right at the beginning of your process and avoid a lot of heartache further down the line!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Over 20 years of musical experience.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: What a question! I could list thousands but here are a few in no particular order... Quincy Jones, Jaco Pastorious, Bootsy Collins, Frank Zappa, Al Jarreau, Dr Dre, Stuart Zender, Jimi Hendrix, George Clinton, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Kashif, Evelyn Champagne King, Steely Dan, Jamiroquai, Breakbot, D'Angelo, Stevie Wonder
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly take on work as a producer, helping to turn my clients songs into something that is of a release standard and radio friendly. More often than not this involves creating a track from scratch around a pre-existing vocal, all the way through to the mixing and mastering process. I also provide bass tracking to my clients too.
