Working with unsigned artists wanting to get a major label sound out of their music for a fraction of the cost. Every client gets their music mixed through a SSL mix console and a variety of analog outboard gear. The same analog gear I use to mix on major label records.

    Been a pleasure working with Brent, really taken our track to the next level. Will definitely be in contact for future projects!
    Also was very flexible with revisions and spent time on the track out of his time off to make sure everything was perfect; a real professional. Thanks Brent!

    Brent is a pleasure to work with. His mixes all sound amazing and he's quick to respond to any mix changes or questions! I couldn't recommend him more to anyone looking for a great mix from a very talented mix engineer.

    Brent was amazing to work with and made me comfortable using this service in general as it was my first time working with an engineer virtually rather than in a studio. The first mix was incredible from the getgo without any instruction from me but he was also very easygoing and able to do all the revisions I requested. Thanks!

    Brent is the man to hire if you want to take your music to the next level. He is a musical mixer and does what he can to meet the artist´s vision. The mix he did for my band Slumberbeat turned out great. So what are you waiting for? Hire Brent!!

    Brent is no joke! He gave my song a super clean and original mix. He has an incredible ear for what makes a great record. I mean he REALLY knows what he's doing. I know I will be working with him again in the future. Top Notch!

    Cannot be happier with this mix!

    You know how as a writer or musician, you create something and you're excited to record it but then oftentimes you're disappointed when you hear the final mixes because it isn't quite right? Well this is totally right!!!

    Brent is a pro and an exceptional engineer and I cannot thank him enough. A++++++++++++

    Brent is an engineer that will make sure your mix is special. Thanks for your service and I appreciate your professionalism. I look forward to releasing this song, sounds wonderful.

    Brent absolutely saved my mix! I gave him an absolute mess of a mix and he made it sound so crisp and clear! He is so easy to work with and when i needed changes made, he was more than happy to make them. I will be returning over and over to him for amazing mixes!!

    Absolutely brilliant working with Brent. From the start of the project he was on point. Had an exact idea of what we needed from the beginning and was really accommodating and quick with changes. Will definitely recommend him to anyone. Also just a great individual. Really professional and patient.

    Brent's the man! Glad we got to work. Off the bat, I gave him a ref. mix to give him a sense of what I was looking for. He embellished on those ideas delivering a more enhanced, full, and overall BIGGER sound. Additionally, he was very communicative and helpful throughout the revision process which is crucial collaborating from a distance.

    Brent is a absolute pleasure to work with. He is extremely easy to communicate with, very reliable and and an extremely creative top-level mix engineer. I highly recommend him and am already preparing to deliver my next project to him.

    Brent is a rare individual, not just in the music industry, but in life. His patience, dedication, work ethic, and willingness to do the best job possible, which means he won't quit until everyone is satisfied, is a testament to his character.

    If Brent commits to your work, you will be absolutely satisfied, at the very, very least. I am ecstatic.

    Brent is absolutely amazing. Never before I was able to achieve the sound I wanted with any sound engineers. Brent made the mix in a few days and it was exactly on the point. He`s very patient and listening and polite, easy to work with. I`m sure next time when I would have to find a mixing engineer, I`ll contact him. Brent is definitely a pro.

    Super Professional. Super Knowledgable. Very Talented and goes the extra mile.

    This guy is a miracle worker! I thought i had a good mix before i sent it to Brent, but once i heard his mix of the same song i truely knew what a good mix was.
    He didn't try to change my song but worked with me to produce something special. I would highly reccommend him and will be using him again.

    Brent provided us with a high-quality mix. He's easy to communicate with and delivered on time. Thanks!

    Brent is easy to work with, professional & reliable. Importantly, he has many different skills. A Berklee-trained musician, he can add music, do additional production, produce, mix, etc.

    He worked with Kanye, Bruno Mars, etc. & earned Grammys and #1s. He's so down to earth, though, you would not know it.

    Great experience!

    Fast, creative, patient, very nice and truly professional. Brent has turned my messy rough mix into a true song because he really understood my vision and gave to the song a real flavor and a true life. I recommend him to anyone, he is a top mixer, a producer with insight and first and foremost an artist. Brent is the man.

    Brent is a very good Mix Engineer. His positive vibe made our communication very easy. He's got every skill to make your track sound wide, full, clear and fat. Thank you Brent, for great quality and good work.

    Brent's resume would lead you to believe he’s not as down to earth and easy to work with as he is. He’s a multi-instrumentalist, giving him an edge in his beat-making/production work that most don’t have and his engineering/mixing skills have the top artists in the industry seeking him out. Definitely an asset to any project you’re working on
