Yuri Zwadiuk on SoundBetter

Multi instrumentalist producer and mix engineer - r&b/pop/hip hop/EDM/rock.

I was born in Queens, NY, and I've had over 15 years of professional experience as a recording/mix engineer and music producer/composer. Some artists I've worked with include Mary J Blige (Mixing), Joell Ortiz (Production), Producer Frank Dukes (Co-production), Natalie Cole (Vocal Recording), Lil Wayne (Beats). My music placements in television include NFL Football, Shameless (Showtime), Black Ink Crew (VH1), Love & Hip Hop (VH1), 2016 Summer Olympics, and many more. Main genres: r&b/pop/hip hop/EDM/rock.

I combine my engineering background with my instrumental ability on guitar, bass, and keyboards to create a production sound that blends live instruments with the latest software and effects. I've developed my mixing skills for years, and it's a big part of my production process.

My approach to working with artists starts with trying to identify their unique strengths and style, and working to bring that out musically and through production...trying to create a signature sound.

I like to communicate with artists in detail so that everyone is on the same page as far as production approach, business side of things, etc. I stay in contact with regular updates through the production process. Overall, my ultimate goal is to build solid working relationships with artists.

    Another fantastic mix by Yuri! This is my second time working with him and I couldn’t think of a reason you would want anyone else to bring your track to life. Very professional, polite and adept at incorporating input to ensure the song sounds the way you envision. Highly recommend him to anyone seeking quality work with ideal turnaround times!

    Yuri is the definition of diligence and determination! He really wants to make sure that he gets the mix the way you envision it. He went above and beyond with this mix. After I completed the job and said we were all done he still did an additional revision without me asking him to (and that revision was even better). Only someone with vision, who really cares about their craft, would do that.If your looking some who will surpass your expectations and do quality work then Yuri is your guy.

    Yuri by far is the absolute best producer I have ever worked with. He really gets to know you as an individual and the direction you want your song to be heading. As a producer he takes the time to listen to your ideas and uses a variety of influences to help inspire you and capture the essence of your own unique sound because of his understanding of the music scene. Yuri’s really easy to work with, he’s efficient, respectful and I definitely recommend getting him to produce your songs! :)

    I usually keep my reviews short but in this case I just can't do that because Yuri is a phenomenal engineer!!!! He took my song and brought out elements that I never would have even thought of. Not only is he extremely talented and professional but a really nice person. I had to go out of town for a week in between everything and he patiently worked with me. He made this process easy and enjoyable every step of the way. I am definitely going to be working with him again in the future.
