Releases on: Toolroom Records, Safe Music, Simma Black, Phoenix Music, No Fuss, King Street, Milk&Sugar, Urbana, Motive, etc...

Hey, hope you're grooving to your new ideas :)
I wanted to share a bit about my journey as a music producer, having had the incredible opportunity to release tracks on major labels like Toolroom Records, Simma Black, Altra Moda, Motive Records, Phoenix Music, King Street, Milk & Sugar Rec, and many more.

You know, one thing I've noticed, and perhaps you've felt it too, is the common struggle we all face when it comes to finishing tracks. It's not about lacking creativity or motivation, nope, not at all. It's more about navigating the path from that awesome 8-bar groove to a fully polished track. And that's where the magic of organization and the right steps come into play.

Here's the deal: I'm not just here to offer services. I'm all about a unique blend of production services and education. I want to guide you through the process, ensuring you never feel stuck and can wrap up your tracks in no time whether you're riding high on motivation or having a bit of a creative block. Whether you're struggling with organizing your ideas, perfecting that final mix, or just need a friendly nudge in the right direction, I'm here for you. Join me for a call or shoot me a message.

Looking forward to the tracks we'll create together!

Cheers,
Nikola

    Working with Nikola has been an amazing experience. He really pushed my track to a next level. Nikola proposed new fresh ideas and took the time to listen and understand where I wanted to go with the project. I also appreciated a lot the fact he cares about making you learn from his skills and be sure that you totally get was he is doing with your project.

Interview with Nikola | Ma Khe & 84Bit

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I'm incredibly proud of my ongoing project Ma Khe but especially 84Bit. It's been an eight-year journey of continuous hard work and dedication. With each step we take, I've personally grown as an artist and gained invaluable experience. This project is a testament to our commitment to evolving, learning, and refining our craft, and that's why it's a source of immense pride for me.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Right now, I'm in the final stages of completing my upcoming release for Toolroom Records, slated for a January 2024 launch. It's an exciting process, but it also involves a lot of fine-tuning and refining to ensure the track is at its best. The Toolroom A&R team and I are working closely together to make sure we deliver an exceptional final product. I'll keep you updated as we approach the release date – stay tuned!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I am sure there will be very soon.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog and digital music production equipment both have their merits. Analog offers warmth and character, while digital provides precision and convenience. The key is to leverage the strengths of each to create a well-rounded production setup. It's not about analog vs. digital... It's about finding the right balance for your unique sound.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: The best promise I can make to my clients is this: I am dedicated to bringing your musical vision to life, ensuring that the final product reflects your unique style and passion. I will work tirelessly to produce tracks that not only meet but exceed your expectations, and I'll be with you every step of the way to make your music the best it can be. Your satisfaction and creative vision are my top priorities.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: What I love the most about my house music production job is the fantastic combination of elements that it brings. First and foremost, it's about meeting incredible people in the industry and building connections that can last a lifetime. Collaborating with talented artists and fellow music enthusiasts is a constant source of inspiration. Additionally, the learning never stops. Every project is a new opportunity to explore and experiment, which keeps my creativity flowing and my skills growing. It's a dynamic field where you never really stop learning, and that's something I genuinely enjoy. The sense of being helpful is also highly rewarding. There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of knowing that my work can make a positive impact on someone's musical journey, whether it's helping artists realize their vision or creating tracks that bring joy to listeners.

  13. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  14. A: 1. What's your musical vision or goal for this project? 2. Do you have any specific references or inspirations in mind for the sound you want to achieve? 3. What's your preferred timeline for completing this project? 4. Are there any specific technical requirements or preferences you have in mind for the production? 5. What's your budget or financial plan for this project?

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: My advice is straightforward. Firstly, have a clear understanding of what you're seeking. Secondly, take the time to get acquainted with potential providers, engage in conversation, and ensure their style aligns with your needs. Once that harmony is established, the rest becomes much simpler.

  17. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  18. A: Who needs a fancy studio when you've got all this natural gear at your disposal, right?

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: I've been on this musical journey for over a decade now, and I must admit it hasn't always been a walk in the park. There have been challenges, moments of doubt, and countless hours of hard work poured into my craft. But when you're driven by a profound passion and a clear sense of purpose, the road becomes more manageable. Over the years, I've honed my skills and developed a style that's uniquely mine. It's a style that encapsulates the best of both worlds: the infectious, groovy vibes of summer house music and the intense, underground beats that can shake the very core of your being. This fusion of elements has become a signature of my sound.

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: My style is a reflection of my musical journey, and I'd describe it as a fusion of elements that mirror the diverse emotions and experiences I've encountered. I often find myself drawn to the summer groovy style of house music, where the beats are light, and the melodies are filled with the warmth and positivity of a perfect sunny day. But, there's more to my music than just good vibes. I have a penchant for taking a plunge into the deeper and darker side of music. There are moments when my tracks take on an edgier, more intense tone, as if I'm channeling my inner moods and emotions into the music. This is when I explore strong underground beats that are laden with raw energy and emotion.

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

  24. A: If I had the opportunity to collaborate with an artist, I'd be thrilled to work with Jon Kong, Mark Knight, and many more. Their fusion of electronic funk and disco elements combined with house and tech-house, innovative sound for sure. Collaborating with them would be a dream come true, as it could provide insights into their creative process and offer a chance to contribute to mine and their legacy.

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

  26. A: In music production, remember that challenges will come your way, and it might feel like everything is against you. But these moments are where you build strength and character. The journey isn't always easy, but the satisfaction of achieving your goals is unparalleled. Keep pushing forward.

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

  28. A: House, Piano House, Deep and Tech-House.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: My strongest skill is undoubtedly my ability to truly understand what my customers want. This deep understanding enables me to consistently exceed expectations and deliver exceptional results.

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