Monty Hancock on SoundBetter

I will record piano/keys for your song. I especially work with lo-fi, chillhop, pop, and other relaxing genres of music.

• Piano recordings, from short 8/16 bar loops, to full piano tracks.
• Any genre of electronic, pop, funk/soul/jazz, lo-fi hip hop, and many others I can do for you. Please see my portfolio on Soundbetter for examples of my work.
• Entirely original compositions. .

I work from my home studio in the south of England full time for clients and my own aliases. The music under my company has accumulated over a billion streams (notably on platforms such as TikTok, Netease, and Tencent QQ). I have worked as a music producer for my own projects/aliases since 2012, and have been professionally producing for other artists and companies since 2016. I am a graduate from Newcastle University with a First Class Honours in Music, and am a practicing professional music producer, songwriter and composer

    Incredibly professional and easy to work with. Monty really delivers the highest quality and listens to your ideas. I've been on this platform and never had anyone give me results as clean as he has.

Interview with Monty Hancock

  1. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  2. A: I would love to work with FINNEAS, his works with Billie Eilish have pushed the sound of pop music into a chic electronic sound which is beautiful and confident.

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: Thinking of music like a 'jigsaw puzzle' - if the vibe isn't right of a certain sound then I will keep searching for the sound that serves the song the best, and build my way up like that.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I have a Scarlett Clarett 4Pre which goes into my monitors - for instrumentals I have been a professional pianist for most of my life so I use my Komplete Kontrols S88 MK2 for that. I also use my Ableton Push 2 primarily for jamming out, extending ideas, and everything inbetween. I have an analgoue synth and a bass guitar that I use for audio inputs.

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: Remixing, Full instrumental production, vocal tuning, timing, and processing, mixing, and mastering.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: Mix as you go.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: Electronic Music primarily. Then after that mostly Lofi Hip-Hop amd Lofi-House, Chill, Solo Piano, and experimental stuff!

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: In the studio, bringing my ability on the keys is the most valuable thing I bring instrumentally to a song.

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: I bring a fullness and a sheen, yet still having the sensation of being sonically warm.

  17. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  18. A: I am particularly inspired by musicians from all branches of production, from FINNEAS, to Burial, to potsu, to Au5.
