    Nat truly is a master of his craft, going well beyond my high expectations! The 1-on-1 call was such a great way to make this track truly feel like a collaboration and not just paying for a service. Nat is a great guy and I will 100% work with him again in the future.

    Nate is a monster. Ultra precise. Talented, he cuts the beat surgically. First collab and he gives me a huge banger.

    Nat has a sharp discipline and great work ethic to his artistry. A true asset to this community. We conversed on the phone about the overall vision of the song and got to know one another a bit as well which I strongly believe is the best way to go about collaborating with creatives, particularly when the effort is being conducted over the internet as opposed to physically being in the same room. I highly recommend, he won't disappoint.

    Nat is a true pro. He took the time to get to know me before we started on the project and understood my vision for the track. He is talented, he takes pride in his work, and his attention to detail is impressive. He went above and beyond for me and I'm extremely happy with the song we created.

    Insanely good vocalist and lyricist for EDM style rap! I gave him the task of writing and recording vocals about something unusual. And after some further discussions he wrote and wrote some insanely cool lyrics along with recording equally as cool vocals! He was both professional but also makes you feel like a buddy of his at the same time, super super nice guy! And he got the task done well within the time frame and to a high standard!

    Nat was just great - right from the start he helped me to work out what I was aiming for, and every step of the way has been very accommodating and extremely patient whilst I figured out the details of this project, and supplied lots of useful information and advice throughout.
    He created a great track that I have been really pleased with.

I run these in parallel in order to remain creative lyrically and with my vocal performance. I will export an initial demo for each client to listen through and offer feedback / amendments, and finalise the project by making those changes and mixing the vocals for export. Once client has confirmed a second demo, they release the project funding and I send the vocal stems.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
