🌠 I'm a young, passionate music producer with a fresh ear and perspective. I have over 6 years of experience, and I'm a Dub Academy graduate certified in music production.
Nowadays, numerous older produces fail to break through and deliver something captivating and fresh to the newer audience. Particularly, many electronic music artists that hit their peak back in 2014 are now unable to stay relevent throughout the evolution of modern EDM; this is due to a couple of things. They use the same techniques, they use the same sounds, and they use the same perspective, resulting in their audience getting bored of the overplayed sound and moving on. These are the things I keep a close watch on and hold into high regards in my productions.
As a young, passionate music producer with a fresh ear and perspective, I guarantee that I can supply you with a unique but trendy song, while still ensuring the quality is professional and radio-ready.
I am a Dub Academy graduate certified in music production, so I am a credible source in the music industry. Although I specialize in House music and have many years of experience in producing it, I am very flexible, so I am confident that I will be able to provide the perfect song in any style for you.
On one side of my alias I release EDM and Pop music, while on the flipside I release Hip-Hop beats for artists to purchase and license.

Interview with Ian Schweitzer
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Catherine Rose Smith—also known as Honeycraft and glasscat—is a very talented vocalist I worked with on an upcoming song recently. I would highly recommend her as she has a beautiful voice and works professionally.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It really depends. With the current sound we have in modern EDM today, digital would probably be your best choice for that more polished sound. Nothing compares to the fresh sound of analog though, and sprinkles of it here and there in your track can make it sound special.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music is my job, passion, and hobby all in one. I love being able to express my self through the sound of music. It's like a video game to me; only better. I wouldn't ever change it.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice is simple: communication! That is key to making a song unique. I want to hear what you have on your mind as well so I am able to combine our ideas into one special piece of music.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: The essentials: FL Studio (or Ableton, preferably FL Studio haha), a pair of Yamaha studio monitors, an Audiobox USB audio interface, my computer, and my Sony MDR-7506 headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: The very beginning of it started when I was very little. My dad was and still is a vinyl House DJ, and both of my parents would play music by classic House artists like Olav Basoski, Breakbot, Poka, Carl Cox, and others. Fast forward to now, and I eventually picked it up, taught myself how to produce, went to a production school, worked hard, graduated, and am starting my own project.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Energetic, powerful, and emotional. I love a track that is punchy, but is still able to be played on the radio; that is what I impliment into my own tracks.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: As I have mentioned, Martin Garrix, Jonas Aden, and Brooks inspire me the most in my productions. So, working with them would be a dream come true. I feel like we would get along with one another too, as we could relate to each other through music production. In terms of singers, I would love to work with Clinton Kane, RUNN, Sara Sangfelt, and Philip Strand. All of their voices are amazing.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Find your sound. The last thing we need in the music industry is the something we have already heard before. In your career, finding your signature sound is one of the most powerful things you can discover. It doesn't have to be something completely different and experimental, but when you come up with a new, fresh idea that no one has ever heard before, you are a big step closer to success.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically, I work on House music—specifically Future House—and Pop, but I love to branch out into different genres to experiment.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring power, uniqueness, and emotion to a song, whether it is a bass-heavy club track or a radio-style Pop track. I make sure that the song's main idea will be fresh, and radiate a strong theme and emotion. This is something that cannot be disregarded in the music industry nowadays.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I am all about communication when it comes to my work process. Once the client pays and gives me all the details about the project they need, I will get to work as soon as possible. I will continue to give the clients updates throughout the production.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pair of Yamaha HS5's hooked up to an Audiobox USB audio interface, a Pioneer DDJ-RZ for when I play any DJ sets, a Yamaha FD01S acoustic guitar, and an Ibanez GSR200 bass guitar.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am very inspired by Martin Garrix, Jonas Aden, and Brooks. They always nail their sound and style so well to the point where you can immediately recognize if a track is theirs.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Ghost production is the main type of work I do. I will produce a top-quality track for the client, and they keep all of the rights to the track and release it under their own name.
