Khao Niao on SoundBetter

Young but experienced duo from Germany open to almost any vibe and musical genre. We offer almost everything: from beat, songwriting, lyrics as well as mixing and mastering. With us you get the complete package at a more than fair price.

We are 404 Molly and JNOSCH, part of the duo "Khao Niao", in our mid-twenties and now active in the music business for over 10 years. Over the years we have produced a wide variety of genres (from Trap to RnB, Hip Hop, Pop, Indie, Synthwave, Alternative, Electro, etc.), written hundreds of songs and collaborated with a wide variety of artists. It is important to us to stand out from the crowd, because we see this as one of the greatest recipes for success.

Since we started small ourselves and know how hard the beginning can be (also regarding finances) we would like to offer our services here on Soundbetter at a fair price. Despite the small price we promise first class work with a lot of attention to detail. We are happy to adapt to your wishes, ideas and preferences.

We offer instrumentals, songwriting, lyrics, top line writing, vocal recordings, mixing, mastering and, if desired, ghost producing. A feature with us is also possible. Prrices are only a rough guide and can be negotiated depending on the effort and scope. We are also happy to make a custom quote for e.g. EPs or albums.

For mixing and mastering we use Genelec monitors (2 x 8320 APM SAM & 7350 APM) with room correction. Furthermore we use plugins from Universal Audio (Neve 1073, Pulteq EQs etc.), Waves and Soundtoys.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Lets work!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
