Very Well Project, otherwise known as Anton Orlov, is a student of the Pyramind Mentorship Network. After learning about our school and mentorship network in an EDMProd article, Anton came to Pyramind looking for guidance on one of the most common challenges music producers face: finishing songs. Anton booked online mentorship sessions with Matt Donner, whose popular Production & Arranging courses specifically guide students from the beginning to the end of the production process, and as a result, he recently released his first completed track as the Very Well Project, Float Like a Butterfly (feat C-L).

After continued mentorship with Matt Donner, Anton released a second track, The Wave (feat. Inseparable), on October 27th, 2017.
