Multi instrumentalist producer and mix engineer - r&b, pop, hip hop, and rock.
I worked for years as a recording and mix engineer in large studios, eventually making the transition to producing and composing for projects. Have worked with Mary J Blige, Natalie Cole, Patti Labelle, Wyclef Jean, Lil Wayne, Fat Joe, and others. TV placements include Ray Donovan (Showtime), Shamelss (Showtime), Black Ink Crew (VH1), Love & Hip Hop (VH1), Pawn Stars, and many others. Main genres: r&b, pop, hip hop, and rock.
I combine my studio experience 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 listening for their unique style and trying to lock into it. Focusing on the artist's vocal character, I try to create a signature sound.
I think it's important to establish working details upfront so that everyone is on the same page, and I stay in contact with regular updates while producing or mixing a project. Overall, I love music production, and my ultimate goal is to build solid working relationships with artists.

Had the pleasure of working with Yuri on a few tracks I wanted mixed and mastered. Very professional from beginning to end. The quality of his mixing and mastering was superb and took my music to the next level!! Definitely working with Yuri again on my next upcoming tracks!!
Yuri is an outstanding engineer and producer. We highly recommend him for your recording projects. His responses are very quick and efficient and his attitude is way up there.
Another great mix from Yuri!
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.
Yuri is a very talented Producer! He really listened and was very receptive to all my ideas. A pleasure to work with!
