THE SXTM FOR PRODUCERS AND DJs
IT’S WITH NO DOUBT THAT PRODUCERS AND DJs ARE THE NEW ROCKSTARS OF THE MODERN MUSIC INDUSTRY. THE SONGWRITING PROCESS HAS SHIFTED AND NOW-A-DAYS SONGS START WITH OR HEAVILY RELY ON KICK ASS TRACK PRODUCTION. MUSIC LISTENERS ARE MORE AWARE OF WHO IS ACTUALLY MAKING THE MUSIC THEY LOVE AND BECOMING FANS OF THOSE CREATORS. WE ARE PRODUCERS TOO AND UNDERSTAND THIS SIDE OF THE BUSINESS. WE HELP OUR FELLOW PRODUCERS FILL IN THE GAPS AND MAKE THEIR SONGS SUPERIOR AND MARKET READY.
We’re big advocates of creating music with intent and purpose. Every song counts. It’s important for us that we get clear on what the vision is both creatively and strategically. What do you need to make your track complete? What kind of energy are you portraying? Why do you do what you do? What’s the message? Is the song for release, live performance, or pitching? Who’s your audience? These are all questions that we ask before diving in.
9 times out of 10 we play the role of the songwriter for our producer/DJ clients. You may have a killer track and it now needs to be a radio ready song. That’s what we do! Our approach is blending compelling lyrics with catchy melodies. But, we won’t just write over anything. If needed we’ll provide feedback on how the track can better support vocals whether it’s arrangement, key, concept, transitions, and digestibility. We promise words that will connect with listeners and make your tracks memorable.
Missing a singer? Well, demo singers aren’t going to cut it now-a-days. There are a lot of demo vocalists out there that are hit or miss. Our approach is more tactical and yields a better result. Remember, that every song counts. That’s our mantra. First, we take a listen to your song and lyrics an make sure it’s ready to go. If not, we make tweaks to get it there. Next, we bring on vocalists who are unique sounding and are up and coming themselves. If needed, we can audition a few vocalists to make sure that we can find the best fit. Finally, we bring them into the studio alongside a vocal producer to get the best takes which is something you don’t get it most cases. With us it’s a must. Finally, the vocals are tuned/edited and we can even help with vocal post-production (treatment) which will add that special “ear candy” to your tracks. Sound like a big process? Heck yeah it is… that’s what makes great records. But, have no fear. We’re here to manage the entire process!
Many of our clients are performing producers or DJs and most of their time spent is on the road. Because of that they will reach out to us to either co-produce or ghost produce tracks for them. This speeds up the creative process and allows our performing clients to delegate tasks and manage their time better. We can produce full tracks or simply fill in the gaps on a track that needs work.
It’s time to level up! We also provide mixing and mastering treatments for DJs, producers, and recording engineers. We can help you finish your record and make sure that it’s up to radio standards. We handle mixing projects both in house as well as bring in outside mixers. Good ones! You know the guys actually mixing those Top 40 songs that you love. We’ve secured incredible deals with the world’s best mixers and mastering engineers. Simply put, we can hook you up
Most of our clients are either career producers or trying to make it their career. Knowing this, we do everything that we can on the backend to help our clients monetize their work. We understand licensing, direct to consumer sales, streaming, publishing, and other creative means of generating income with music. Some folks don’t need help with this and that’s cool! If you do, feel free to ask us for help. We’ve helped our clients build relationships with business who can help them create momentum such as streaming promoters, radio promoters, PR companies, marketing agencies, publishing companies, and licensing agents.
Side note – Are you a producer that works with (wants to work with) clients online like we do? We also help working producers build their pro audio business. This includes product development (courses/samples), new client acquisition, branding, and more. We’ve proved that you can make a great living producing music independently and now we help others do the same.
