Music to fit your project perfectly.
Based in London, UK, I write, produce, mix and master songs for artists and for TV/Film catalogues. Alongside working with artists, I am an In-House Producer for Hooksounds, a music library that works with large companies such as Google and Amazon.
By taking inspiration from many genres, in order to build my own sound, it has enabled me to acquire a wide variety of techniques needed for different styles. With this being said, I tend to lean towards creating more emotional sounding tracks with interesting soundscapes. I will always look to put authenticity first on your project and make it stand out from the rest, creating tracks that are unique to you.
Working under the label The Svnteen as an artist, producer, co-producer and ghost writer, I have gained all the attributes needed to work with clients and get the most out of tracks.

A: Customers regularly ask what I recommend in terms of improving their music or project. I always provide a thorough initial deep-dive into each track and write a set of notes for the client.

A: The biggest misconception about what I do as a Music Producer is that we cannot recreate a band right from the comfort of our own studio.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: - Guitar - Analog Synthesizer - Audio Interface - Computer - Microphone
Q: Analog or digital and why?

A: I always ask for the emotion they are trying to portray in their music, as it can speak a thousand words.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you can relate emotionally to the music we produce, as how a track makes you feel is the main thing.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been producing now for 11 years. I started by one day messing around on FL Studio originally, and once I moved to Ableton, the rest was history.

A: I don't like to box myself in with genres, but it definitely is more of an Electronic style, with Ambient influences.

A: I bring creativity and an experimental view on music. I am not afraid to try different sounds and instruments and think outside the box when it comes to arranging and composing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process consists of a number of different sessions. The first few sessions will be focused on creation and experimentation. Then followed by arrangement sessions, mixing sessions and finally mastering.
