I am a producer, engineer, and drummer based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My work has helped artists enjoy features on networks such as MTV and Oxygen, as well as achieve FM and XM radio exposure, reaching a worldwide audience of millions.
*NEWS: Mat has been brought in as lead engineer for one of Toronto's finest studios: The MPL!*
As a Producer, Recording Engineer, and Mix Engineer I have had the fortune of making music with some of my favourite artists both locally and around the world. As a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and writer, I am able to communicate and envision every element of the production, as well as the big picture with you.
When I am not Producing or Engineering, I am teaching Production and Engineering at Durham College in Ontario, Canada. Communicating and going over the process is one of my favourite things.
As a drummer, I am a member of the international rock band Bolus. When not playing with Bolus, I love playing on other people's projects. It's always an interesting and fun experience to make someone else's vision come to life. My background as a trained Engineer and Producer allow me to get very specific, and great sounding drum sounds.

Mat is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. He is a skilled producer, engineer, and drummer who works hard and does not hesitate to go the extra mile. Throughout the entire process he was prompt, accommodating, and flexible with regards to feedback. Highly recommended!
Mat is a great guy whose also incredibly professional. He was super open to feedback and applied all the adjustments I asked for perfectly. He made me feel very comfortable and was extremely reassuring at every step of the way. I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a great engineer with a great work ethic and attitude.
My previous experience with mastering Engineers did not meet my expectations, so thank goodness I found Mat on soundbetter.com ... one project now completed together, and I'm already getting the response time, level of professionalism, and mastering quality for which I had hoped. Looking forward to future projects with Mat!
Keselman has some of the hardest-working freelance chops I know. From mixing, recording engineering, mastering to performing as a session drummer, he is consistently focused on aural clarity, precise editing, realistic imaging and natural dynamics. With Mat, a good source is essential - it's never enough to "fix it in the mix."
Mat is detailed in the end-to-end process of creating great music. I've had the opportunity to work with Mat in many projects and highly recommend his services.
Mat is definitely the guy to hire for any production, mixing and/or mastering. He is absolutely dedicated to getting you the BEST sound. There are so many tricks of this trade and for being so young, you'd be surprised with how much this guy knows. I always trust Mat to help me with ANY aspect of music production!
