Yooo, my name is Ethan and I go by Edizzy. I'm quick to find trends and to help artists figure out where to take a project. I work hard to make an amazing piece of art that's upload-ready!
I offer a wide variety of services. On top of just making beats, I can create a song and take it throughout the whole creative process. I have been producing music for 4 years and have experience recording, mixing, and mastering. I also make loops, drumkits, and textures that are perfect to add something special to every track!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Ethan Shun
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently, I am working with a couple up and coming rappers in Cleveland. I think Cleveland is starting to get its moment and I am trying to connect and work with as many people as I can from my city. I am also working on my own electronic music while collaborating with different DJs I've met while attending school in Columbus, Ohio.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not at the moment, but I am excited to get to know the SoundBetter community!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I do not have any analog gear, but that doesn't mean I can't get analog sound with digital gear. There are so many plugins that emulate analog gear that I don't think it's an issue to get warmth and nice distortion from digital anymore.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is to help you make a song that you love to the best of my abilities!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask about the type of song they are going for, what mood that song is in, their favorite artists and creatives, and some more depending on their profile.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always explore your options and give people a chance!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: All I need is my computer and my headphones to make amazing music.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as your style. I do my best to try and fit the sound of the person I'm working for.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: While there are so many artists I would love to work with, Blackbear is at the top of that list.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: To constantly try new things. That is the only way we push the boundaries of music and create something fun and unique.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on hip-hop and electronic music. On the side, with friends, I also make indie rock and pop music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My work ethic. I work hard to achieve my ideas even when I don't always have the musical ability to make them happen. I will try relentlessly to get a certain sound and get a cleaner mix when I don't feel that it is good enough.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a lot of ideas and energy to a song. If you are stuck and don't know where to go in the creative process, I'm the guy to make a list of 50 potential things to add, subtract, or do to help you finish your project.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I use a couple of different techniques to try and maximize my time and creative process. Recently I have broken up different aspects of the creating process into hour chunks. For example, I will set a timer for an hour and spend that hour sound designing, and when that time is over I will take a short break and spend another hour on another thing like mixing a song. I find this beneficial because it lets me focus on the task at hand and not get sidetracked by another aspect of the creating process.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio set up a lot of the time is just my laptop and a pair of Audio Technica M50x's. I also do a lot of creating in my home studio which is equipped with Yamaha HS8's, a Focusrite audio interface, thrifting instruments, a Ludwig drumset, and lots of plants.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am most inspired by Kenny Beats, Alex Tumay, Rick Rubin, and Finneas just to name a few.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Send out beats and loops. Arrange and mix tracks.
