Charlie Shrives on SoundBetter

Producer, beat maker & studio engineer. Self taught pianist, acoustic and electric guitarist. Merging an eclectic mix of genres; Specialising but not limited to; Jazz, Rnb, Hip Hop, Afro beat and UK dance. Originating and drawing influence from the diverse cultural fusion of sounds emerging from the streets of North London.

Actively producing for nearly 10 years, in addition to studying music production at university has enabled me to gain extensive experience developing my sound and aesthetic. Saying this, my skills as a producer branch further than just creating music and studio engineering.

Navigating between the realms of creative consultation and technical expertise, I work alongside a variety of musicians and performers via creative direction and collaboration. Aiding the manifestation of each artists vision and sound.

Co-Founder of Common Sound, a grass root collective based out of Ten87 Studios. We strive to encourage and promote the cultivation of live and collaborative music sessions, accessible for emerging talent in London. Born from a weekly production based live jam, our platform has grown to be an experimental safe space for musicians.

With a strong focus on black and multicultural styles of music, I believe that pioneering diversity and collaboration is essential for creating original sounds. Breaking genre boundaries where relationships between electronic/acoustic and live/recorded music are twisted and reimagined.

Highly Proficient in Ableton Live/Logic/Pro Tools/Maschine. Confident in a variety of recording processes and techniques for different instruments and styles.

Offering services of Production, Mixing/Mastering, Creative Consultation and Studio Hire.
