80k monthly listeners and more than 8m streams on Spotify, KENO's music has reached in 2023. After 10 years of experience as a producer, mixing and mastering engineer, as well as a rapper, songwriter and editor, the number is growing. Style: Multigenre with powerful, groovy productions/mixings/masterings.
During the time from the start of music production, I have worked with many talented musicians. Partly as a support to polish the tracks, sometimes in collaborations for a joint release, as well as writing songs, arrangements and lyrics.
With an experience of now more than 10 years in music production, I have gained experience in many genres, catapulting their tracks and buzz to the next level to play along with the big ones. I dedicate my audio technical specializations to the following genres in the game: modern dance music (EDM); house, tech house, bass house, progressive house, future house, future bass, electro, future pop, pop, trap, hybrid trap, dubstep, and hip hop.
Your unclear lead sound and your muddy bassline, as well as your drums, FX and vocals - I'll direct it to the next level.
With my workflow and methods to go into the smallest detail, I will manage, together with you, adapting your song to your favorite hit record and bring out the best that is possible.
Constructive criticism, both positive and negative, is more than welcome. We will not stop working and communicating until we get the sound you want, count on it!

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: yes and no.
