    Had the best time working on this project with Ariel. Really can't put into words how great of engineer he is in every sense of the craft. Its one thing for someone to do a great job on one song, but to consistently kill it for every song we worked on together shows how much of an expert he really is. Highly recommended for those who are looking to bring their sound forward. Thanks for everything Ariel!!

    Ariel's mixes are so inspiring. I compared his final mix to what we gave him and our drums sounded like a cheap metronome. He transformed them into the most massive beat imaginable. There is nothing I would change, just incredible! Thanks Ariel. E

    I didn't think Ariel could get any better but the mixing in the most recent track is out of this world. He made it sound absolutely massive and it's everything I wanted and more. Not only this but I've got to say Ariel is so good at delivering exactly what you want! There were some minor tweaks I wanted doing and within a matter of hours he'd already sent it over exactly how I wanted. Unbeatable service

    Understood the project immediately and delivered a great first mix! Through his great communication skills, we were able to adjust and tweak elements from that mix in order to deliver a product I was satisfied with in the end. I will definitely be back for future projects.

    I would give more than 5 stars if it was possible. Not only is Ariel one of the nicest guys I’ve worked with but I can tell you this right now… there’s a reason why he’s gone so many crazy credits behind his name… he’s the best

    I really really enjoy working with Ariel. Such an awesome engineer and person! It’s hard to find someone who understands your vision/style so easily, but Ariel definitely can grasp anyone’s and take it to the next level. I appreciate how he’s able to listen to what my ideas are and actually execute them while making them better. All I can say is if you’re an artist who cares about your work and want an engineer who cares just as much, he’s your guy. Looking forward to more!!!
