What does all great music need? Rhythm and melody. That’s what I can offer you!
I am available to write singles - full albums, write melodies/samples for you to use, exclusively, I am able to give your music that layer of percussion that most producers tend to forget about, this is also available as midi tracks so you can change the sound however you choose too!

A: I am currently working on a project for my grandfather which I’ve been working on for the past 2 years.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: ITSSAGEBEATS for all mixing and mastering needs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: This is like chocolate or milk? BOTH! They compliment each other so well, although I use only digital as the analog world is expensive.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To give you my all, when you hire me, I won’t take on any work that would slow me down, you would have my undecided attention.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Meeting people, seeing their perspective on my work and how it can make me better and better
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long does it take to make a track - as I tell them, unless they’re in the studio with me or able to articulate properly over messages what they want, I can be working on a track for up to two weeks for a client. If they’re present, I can have a track finished to mix in a absolute minimum of 4 hours
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Being a one trick pony, ‘only writing loops’
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Have you looked around and made sure you’re in the right place, for the right thing!

A: Be clear, know what you want, unless, you want me to take full creative control which I am more than happy to do if you’re struggling to think of what you want.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 8 track recorder, Juno, Jupiter, my kit, and a mic pack.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I’ve been studying music all of my life, starting piano at the age of 5, I went to college, university, and now, slowly, into the industry.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Weird, different, out of the box.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: JID because his flow is unreal and he seems very humble.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: For god sake make sure your bass is fine tuned, it might be in the right key, but if it isn’t fine tuned in, then your tracks will sound dead.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Trap or Hip-Hop tracks, and Metal.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: quantising and time keeping, being a drummer and pianist I’ve always had an excellent eye for a DAW grid.

A: Life. I have a great ear for finding strange ways to make songs sound thicker, fuller, and more interesting.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I don’t have a typical work process, a track can take between a day and a month to finish and no two songs have hadn’t the same process as I’m always experimenting and learning.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: home setup, my studio is my, and my instruments are very much my VST’s which I’ve put a lot of time and money into finding the ones I love.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
