Killen Manjaro on SoundBetter

Professional music producer, mixing/mastering engineer and songwriter. I've worked with all the major labels (Universal Music, Warner, Sony ATV, Dim Mak Records etc.) Been working with songwriters who's writing songs for Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Social House. I just released a song with Dim Mak Records called "Ain't Too Late" by Aviella.

I'll help you with Mixing & Mastering, and I can also make your vocals sound great with Vocal Production (timing, tuning & mixing).

My specialty as a producer is that I'm really good at making a song sound expensive (of course to a cheap price). I'm happy to help you making your song sound loud, modern and professional, like the songs on Spotify.

I have a 2 year education in Producing, Mixing/Mastering and Songwriting in one of the best music schools in the world, "Musikmakarna" located in Sweden, which is famous all over the world for having successful students.

I believe that music should be available for everyone, both making it and listening to it. So I'll charge a really small fee for my work (it's hard to find cheaper here on SoundBetter).

Most of my experience is in EDM, but I can Produce, Mix & Master any popular genre.

I would love to hear from you. So please click the contact button above to get in touch!

    Killen Manjaro does great work. The Mix & Master sounded like I had envisioned on the 1st draft. Nothing further was needed. Would definitely recommend.

    Hannes (Killen Manjaro) was polite, helpful, and well-behaved through all the tweaks it took to get to the final product.
    The work on my project, the mix of the song, took a little longer a month. There was a difficulty in communication, but the employee compensated for everything with his diligence. Thank you very much for the good work done!

    Killen Manjaro produced one of the tracks to my upcoming EP and I choosed him because of his good reputation. I'm so happy with the production and would love to work together again! He also did a remix of one of my other tracks that's also amazing!!!

    Such a great experience working with Killen from start to finish. I had a rush order that he gracefully accepted without hesitating and nailed it! Good communicating and understanding was key to get it done as fast as possible.
    I would definately recommend working with Killen. Well done mate!

Interview with Killen Manjaro

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I'm the producer for an artist called GERD, who hopefully is going to go big!! She is so talented and easy to work with!

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm working with some of my returning clients, getting their songs perfected!

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Yes. David Pietras, who are a great Mixing and Mastering engineer.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Mostly digital. Because it's so much quicker and cheaper, with nearly exactly the same quality as analog. But yeah, analog can be really cool sometimes and helps the mind get a bit more creative.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That we'll work together until they're happy with the result. No matter how long it takes.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The moment when someone gets mind blown or just very happy that their song sounds so good! It warms my heart.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: They often ask, "Can you get this done like this week??". Most of the time my answer is yes, but only if I know I'll be able to deliver a quality product!

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That I'm too young to be a mixing engineer. I'll prove you wrong I promise!

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: When do you want it done? How big is the job?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Be honest and clear about what you want. I'm here to serve you!

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: Laptop, headphones, a solar panel, a computer charger able to connect to the solar panel, and sunscreen. :)

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I've been producing and mixing for about 7 years. I also have an education on one of the most prestigious music schools in the world, "Musikmakarna".

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: My style is modern, and if the client let's me, I can get really creative.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I want to work with either Flume or maybe Billie Eilish. Because they always try to make something new and different and their mixes are always great!

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Don't be afraid to use distortion and saturation on everything! It makes the song fuller and more interesting.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Mostly electronic stuff, that's where I'm the most skilled. But I can do anything really.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: That I'm quick and easy to communicate with!

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring whatever the client wants. But mostly a professional mix and master that is suitable for streaming and fitting in amongst the biggest songs out there!

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I always try to understand as much as possible about the client and what he/she wants for their song. It's such an individual thing. Then I do a quick first draft and send it to the client to see if I'm going in the right direction. Then we work together and communicating back and forth to make it perfect!

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I sit in an acoustically treated studio in Stockholm with a pair of "Genelec 8040 Active" monitors. I use the UAD Apollo Twin soundcard and do all the mixing in Logic Pro X on my MacBook.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I'm really inspired by producers like Flume, Mura Masa and Disclosure. But also legendary mixing engineers like Chris Lord-Alge and Rob Kinelski.
