Enroll in our transformative 12-week-program with our founder EDDIE THONEICK and unfold your true potential.
Refine Productions is a groundbreaking music production enterprise conceived by the esteemed dance luminary, Eddie Thoneick. Our mission is to guide you in surmounting both artistic and psychological hurdles, enabling you to discover your unique "sound-print" and evolve into a mindful, visionary artist.
Renowned for his musical skills, the multi-instrumentalist has seamlessly worked alongside and remixed musical luminaries like David Guetta, Moby, Placebo, Armand van Helden, and Steve Angello to name a few. His joint venture with Erick Morillo in 2010 birthed the now classic track "Live Your Life" which ascended to the pinnacle of international music charts. The years that followed bore witness to a remarkable discography, with releases on labels like Universal, Warner, Sony, Spinnin', Armada, Axwell's Axtone, Steve Angello's Size and Toolroom.
His music has resonated across diverse corners of the world, and earning him a place on revered worldwide stages with peak performances such as Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Pacha, Space, Amnesia, and Cafe Mambo in Ibiza, as well as the legendary Ministry of Sound in London.
With his vast background in music Eddie Thoneick ventured into the world of sync music in 2021 that already brought him trailer placements on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Focus Features. His work has also complemented advertising placements for brands like Hyundai, Nissan, Downy, Pepsi, and ESPN+. Beyond the accomplishments, he remains a musician at heart, driven by his motivation for growth and innovation with meticulous dedication.
But Eddie's path to success was rife with challenges - unfinished tracks, rejections from labels and agencies, and moments of self-doubt that nearly led him to abandon his greatest passion: Music.
Through personalized 1-on-1 introductory sessions with artists, we have identified a prevailing issue among artists:
the acquisition of counterproductive habits and routines that stifle their potential and hinder progress. This often results in frustration, self-doubt, and, in some cases, abandonment of their dreams.
While releasing music and rising as an artist are significant milestones, maintaining momentum and consistency requires an entirely different set of skills. With our 1-on1 course THE MENTORSHIP, we combine life coaching and production expertise to nurture your development into a self-aware and mindful artist. Our goal is to make your journey toward success and fulfillment enjoyable, empowering you to establish a solid foundation for your career, bolster self-confidence, foster innovative thinking, adopt a fresh musical perspective, and strike a harmonious balance in your artist's journey.
