Rob Lindsay is a mixing engineer and producer based in Bristol.
My aim as a mix engineer is to be a creative extension of the artist. My goal in every mix is to make sure that the best qualities are brought out of every track and bring your vision to life. Good communication before any project is essential, so before every mix we'll have a conversation about the direction and vision you have for the track or project.
I've been mixing and producing records for the last 10 years and have worked with lots of great artists in the including Anne Marie, My Nu Leng, Dj Fresh, Foreign Beggars, Takura, Mr Eazi, Black Josh, Eva Lazarus, Codec and many more.
I mix mainly in the box these days using Studio One with Dangerous DA's and a Unity Audio Boulder system. I find this gives me great results with a quick turnaround time.
I pride myself on being highly motivated, very easy to work with and completely focused on getting the best results on any project I work on.
