Music Production l Songwriting l Mixing l Mastering


Thanks for visiting! My name is Dan Scholes and I'm a music producer, songwriter and mixer, specialising in pop, singer-songwriter, acoustic, RnB and country-pop genres with over 20 years experience in the music industry.


I have produced, mixed and written songs for artists, record labels and music publishers that have amassed millions of streams and radio play worldwide including songs featured in film and TV.

Every project I work on has a unique story to tell and every artist and songwriter has their own vision. My goal is to help make your songs sound like they do in your head and bring that vision of yours to life.


DSM is all about bringing your songs & ideas to life.


It might be that you want a full music production including having your songs mixed and mastered so you can release your songs commercially on Spotify and Apple Music and secure placements on coveted radio and editorial playlists.

Or perhaps you just need a professional demo of your song that you want to pitch to music publishers & record labels.


Whatever it is you need, I'm here to help you make your songs sound like they do in your head and make your vision come to life! ​





I offer a full production service which includes recording, mixing and mastering. I'll take your songs from the early demo stage to "radio ready" final release helping you creatively every step of the way.

It all starts with the song.....If you need help with the creative process of writing and structuring your songs then look no further. I have over 20 years experience as a songwriter as well as producer and have had songs recorded and released by artists all over the world as well as used and heard in numerous films and TV shows.

Whether the rest of your production has been done by DSM or not, I can take your individual multi track stems and create a final mix that will make your music sound great whether it's on a top of the range hifi system or cheap and cheerful smart phone earphones. No matter how good your song or production is, a great mix will help elevate your song to a level that can compete with the best of the best.

Mastering is the final stage in the music production process and it's what gives your songs that final polish so they're ready for the wider world. I will create a final master that translates well across all listening platforms.

"I was very fortunate to have found one of Dan's songs 'Learning to let go' which I cut and released to critical and commercial success.  To describe Dan's talent is too difficult, just listen to the songs he has written & produced to get an idea of the immense talent he has.

Get this guy on the up because he is going to the top!!"
