If you want oldschool synth sounds, I'm your man. Specializing in indie, synth, darkwave & alternative, I've been producing, mixing and mastering for more than 20 years.
Working primarily with analog synthesizers and esoteric drummachines, I guarantee your music will sound different and get that edge. Since I've also been working in the film industry for several years, my work style ethic also has a cinematic quality to it.

Interview with Nicolaj Roos
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog. It's imperfect. Like us.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Arp 2600, Arp Quadra, Moog Source, LinnDrum, Oberheim DMX.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have a background in film, alternative/indie, and pop. So I am able to marry these different genres to a unique combination.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I'm using a Mac and Cubase for DAW. I have a studio full of analogue synths and drummachines. I love old effect units, and especially spring reverbs, which I track every chance I get.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: If we go way back, Young Marble Giants was probably the band that made one of the biggest impressions on me. The minimalism was awesome. In recent times, I think what Colleen does is absolutely breathtaking. Apart from that, I've been listening to a lot of synth minimalistic pop, like Deux, Oppenheimer Analysis, Das Ding, Linear Movement and so on.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm most often hired as a producer, and mix engineer.
