Musicproducer from Denmark, my expertise is Hip Hop, Trap and Rnb. I have been working with and released stuff in most urban genres from dark simple trap beats to smooth organic stuff with live instruments and samples.
Hi my name is Jens I work by the alias JCoffy
through my time producing i have been working with most sub-genres in urban music, from sample-based eastcoast beats to funky westcoast to contemporary trap and rnb and pop.
what i offer is productions and instrumentals
because of the many genres i have worked with and the competent musicians i use (in some cases for an extra price) i can make most references you may have without it sounding like rip off, for a fair price.
I have been working with both Danish and international artists from Denmark to Los Angeles to Stockholm and London.
I am currently working on different upcoming projects in Danmark but i am always looking for new connections and people to collab with.
I have a studio i own myself an hour from copenhagen where i produce and mix and i am part of two studios in Copenhagen, where there is professional recording facilities so its also possible to book a session in Copenhagen, with me as an engineer i can take of vocal mixes and mixes ready for master also got different low price options for external mastering of the projects we might do

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: i Have been doing beats since i was 12 when i was 22 i signed a management contract with Cfe Music and Entertainment, whom i still work with I have been in different settings learning more and more each year, the reason i started making beats was because i wanted to do my own songs as a rapper but i found out the that productions was more for me, I have been in Los Angeles ta few time and been able to work with some prominent producers and songwriters there, right now i am working with in different roles in 5-6 projects with very talented upcoming artists in denmark in genres spanding from rnb to modern trap sound, I have a catalogue with a lot of beats that doesnt fit my current projects but i know will work internationally
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I can work in different genres in the urban spectrum, I have heard a lot of different people say i can always tell when its you who made the beat, but what defines my sound is that i both use samples and live instrumentation also live instrumentalists when i think of a beat i like its almost always something that can't be decoded easily
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Chris Brown, Jhene Aiko, Mozzy, Nas, Rick Ross, could name so many but what defines most music i personally prefer is that its "moody"
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: transpose and change the tempo more times in the process when making beats it can define or change it to a cooler mood, also dont be limited by rules by what you can sample more times than not the sample i started with is not even a part of the final product and last one i heard Mike Dean said "Dont fall in love with you ideas" we all need to hear that sometimes

A: i work on modern urban music trap hip hop rnb. i also got a a thing for oldschool hip hop especially g-funk and southern hip hop and bay area hip hop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: my strongest skill is the overview of a production wheter i start or finish it when i work with others, i believe i have the skill to make a song sound "simple" but put on details that can't be mimicked, have heard a lot of people i worked with say "you bring grittyness to the productions thats original and that i have good ear from picking sounds that set the right mood.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: as a producer i strive to bring the soul of the artist out in the track, with the beats im very focused on putting small details that makes the production feel like a picture in your head
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When i work with beats its very different either i play something on keyboard, find a progression in scaler, sample from a vinyl or from youtube or from an app in my phone, its about finding one sound to me that gives me a vibe, and then go on from there music is about the feeling to me no boundary to how you find it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I Have my personal studio where i mostly do beats and mix, i have a different stuff for beat making im using everything from MPC's to fantom to motif, and a lot of kontakt sounds, I use Studio One for producing

A: Im inspired by versatile people, and all types of music old to new i but for producers I would say Dj Quik, and Mike Dean and Dr.Dre.
