Hello, I'm Ashley, a Coventry based music producer. You can read more about me here.
I've been working with music since the early 2000s. I used to DJ and have been producing for over 15 years.
I've been developing my skills and sound as an electronic music producer for over 15 years and specialise in many forms of House, EDM and Trance music.
My Production Studio
My music studio is completely 'in the box', which means I work predominantly with software, with very little hardware. In fact, all of the hardware I use is USB powered, due to recent studio upgrades. It's a very different setup to what I started with!
I use both Ableton Live 9 and Logic Pro X software, with many instruments, plugins, effects and sound packs readily available.
Because of this setup, and the experience I have in many styles of Electronic music, I can be very flexible with what I produce. It also means I can work in many different styles and work to specific reference material, without my options being limited by specific hardware units.
I've worked with numerous musicians including bands, session musicians and solo artists, which allows for the fusion of digital and traditional instruments. This has helped me to push the boundaries of my production work in all styles.
I work hard to achieve the best sound possible, using reference tracks to ensure the sound quality rivals that of commercially released music.
Tough beats, driving rhythms, pulsing bass lines, piercing leads, interesting chords and a full sound. Drama created from creative tension and release techniques and arrangements that grab and maintain interest, with high quality production standards. Combine these all together and you have what makes a great Dance track.
Take a look at some of the styles of music I've worked with recently.
