Olly Shelton on SoundBetter

Classically-trained Producer & Mix engineer • Ambient Pianist & Bass Singer • Releases on Sony RCA & Syncs on BBC1 / ITV • Studio with Steinway Piano (amongst many other things...) • Specialising in Electronic, Left-field & Ambient Music, In-person & Remote Sessions • Editor / Assistant Producer @ Tape Notes podcast

Hi, I'm Olly and I'm a producer, pianist and mix engineer specialising in electronic / left-field / ambient music, working between Iguana Studios (London) and my home setup in Brighton (seconds from the seafront).

I've performed with artists such as Basement Jaxx, Kelly Lee Owens, Nitin Sawhney and the Vienna Philharmonic (with Simon Rattle), interned at Remote Control Productions (Hans Zimmer’s studio) and have had Cherif Hashizume (credits: Jon Hopkins, Björk, Kelly Lee Owens) as a mentor.

Working with world class artists has given me a true perspective of the creative process at its highest level, and now I'm more often found in the studio than on stage, this is the kind of quality and attention to detail I'll bring to your project. Making artists sound as good as they possibly can is my biggest focus.

I've had tracks that I co-wrote and produced find their way onto on BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra, BBC Introducing London, Radio X and Spotify's Fresh Finds, and have mixed multi-award winning film scores, all still just a few of years out of uni.

I'm all about leaving space for the music to live and breathe without any unnecessary, busying elements. I'm also not afraid of the occasional hard hitting techno track...

    Amazing experience working with Olly, he created a track with my string composition that has so many layers and is much more interesting. Great producer, mixing and mastering work. Will definitely continue working with him.

    Fantastic! Olly's skill in playing, production and mixing is undeniable. I would absolutely recommend working with Olly to anyone who wants their songs to be elevated to a new level - he manages to do it every time. He's extremely easy to work with and is able to perfectly articulate ideas into sonic reality.

    I cannot recommend Olly highly enough! We've worked together on a number of tracks now over a number of years and it still blows my mind how he turns ideas into an incredible reality. As a co-writer and producer he's ensured my songs are always high quality and something to be proud of. As a pianist, his skills just lift songs to a new and beautiful level. I could listen for hours. His work ethic is second to none too so you're in great hands.

    Olly is a brilliant and highly talented producer and musician. He has great sensitivity towards music and audio production in general. He produced my track, ‘Feel the Fire’ and really took it to the next level. It’s my most streamed track on Spotify. https://open.spotify.com/track/3qlZsvP6dJzfwJr3dB2NUJ?si=mv6DLmyRTzeqYQ6jU5FP-w

    Olly is a fantastic, musically sensitive producer! I have worked with Olly as my producer on a number of projects and could not recommend him enough. He has excellent attention to detail and is creatively dedicated to each song.
