Kyle Devine is a pop and hip hop music producer based in Portland, Oregon. Whether it’s a heavy hip hop anthem, sweaty club banger or a dark pop ballad, Devine’s work is typified by sophisticated, soulful rhythms met with instrumentation (both synthetic and classic) that reveal fresh blooming depth with each passing bar.
As a teenager, I became influenced by hip hop and pop music and its producers such as Dr. Dre, Max Martin, Timbaland, J Dilla, and The Alchemist. I was soon loading songs into a sound editor and visiting thrift store’s vinyl collections every chance I could to get what I recognize now as a musical education. I began my career in music in 2001 after a short time in college studying Computer Science. After a few years, I started a recording studio business from my house, and later a commercial facility I designed and built. In the span of seven years, I helped different recording artists create a total of over 100 albums and hit my Tipping Point.
Three years ago, I became heavily involved in sync licensing by working with Universal Music Publishing and several music libraries. I have synced my music over two thousand times to TV shows, movies, and commercials. I am the founder of Check Your Vibe, a boutique licensing company, that partners and creates with marketing agencies and represents a core group of artists’ catalogs in electronic sub genres.
I help recording artists create music that gets licensed.

Stupendous / Recording Artist
I just started working with Kyle on my project and I’m so glad that I did. He gives honest feedback, is patient, has helpful suggestions, and does everything in his power to make your recording sound as good as possible. His technical engineering skills were really impressive, and I was struck by how detail oriented he was. If you’re serious about your music, regardless of genre, I would highly recommend recording your project at Devine Noise.

Kyle is brilliant as a producer. He has a great handle on current sounds and beats, and a great ear for building arrangements that work, resulting in modern, fresh, impactful mixes. Rap, pop, dance. rock…. he has a great ear for it all.
If you are looking for an engineer/producer to turn you ideas into a finished product that really shines, Kyle should be at the top of your list.
Reed Thomas Lawrence / Editor & Sound Designer
Kyle is an amazing producer and engineer that captures exactly what you are hearing in your head or trying to convey by way of rough mind sketches. He can take the colors of sound that you may be visualizing and directly lay them out for you to hear in many different shapes and forms. He’s also a master of beats… the guy can create, produce and master any beat you’re looking for.

I’ve had the good fortune of working with Kyle on a couple of large projects in the past year. I really enjoy the quality of his work… his sounds are great, his mixes very punchy and always radio ready, and his writing is very creative and fresh. Totally in touch. We have great communication and Kyle is very quick with any revisions or tweaks, and he’s also on top of all his paperwork. Really appreciate working with Kyle and will again.

Kyle Devine is an excellent sound designer and engineer. With a great ability to collaborate and come up with creative musical and sound ideas, he brought my literary work to life with sound effects and music. I recommend him for all commercial and artistic projects. Not only is he highly creative and willing to be flexible to meet a client’s needs, he is also meticulous, working to achieve perfection in the final sound production. I recommend Kyle Devine highly for all sound and music projects. He’s terrific.
Eric Perrenoud / Copywriter – Producer
Kyle is great at taking a project’s direction to compose music that both fits the concept and elevates the overall creative value of the production.
“At the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time. We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us.“
