OKTOPUS PRODUCTIONS (OTP) is a creative studio that undertakes production, recording, mixing, mastering, graphics and music video projects. OTP saw the light in 2011 in Ghent, Belgium, when the founder and producer Tom Vansteenkiste a.k.a. Nailbiter / Sqwif shared his first release “Soundbits” with the world.

As an octopus in the animal realm, OTP has multiple facets and serves as a platform for a wide variety of musical styles. The studio has a preference for the unpredictable and the absurd; music should not always be easily consumable. Innovative and boundary breaking musicians get to do their thing, though the more classical genres are appreciated as well. OTP wants to give people the opportunity to create in a relaxed and informal setting without being bothered by time pressure or high production costs.

Please note that OTP is not a record label, this site is a portfolio. All releases here are either personal projects or collaborations with other artists or bands.

lose track of space, time and themselves in “the now and the here”.
