COMPOSITION / PRODUCTION
We operate in a great variety of musical styles with a special focus on hiphop, r&b, pop, house and electronic beats. We also do composition and production for media purposes (tv, radio, internet, game industry).
We often use a lot of analog sources (live instrumentation, analog synths, analog effects) blended with digital, electronic beats to create an unique warm and sparkling sound. We work with classic synths such as the Moog Prodigy, Korg MS-2000 and Roland Juno 60. This collection is complemented by a couple of rare and unique synths like the Polivoks (Russian analog synth), Jen SX 1000 and the Sequential Circuits Pro-one.

Because Killing Skills has a professionally educated engineering background, you will obviously be satisfied and stunned by our mixing & mastering results.
