I'm very proficient in Pro Tools and Logic Pro as well as many software plug-ins. I mix both in and out of the box, specializing in pop/electronic/urban genres. I pride myself on delivering a big top-40 sound and if that's what you're after, I want to help bring your vision to fruition.
Long known as one of the Puget Sound region’s most sought after hip-hop and pop producers and engineers, I live both behind the production boards and in the spotlight as a solo artist. Now living in Los Angeles, I run a production and mixing room. I toggle between mixing records and daily co-writes as both a writer and producer. I offer services in mixing, editing, producing, detailed vocal producing, mastering and meta-data help.

Phinisey is INCREDIBLE. Very talented and proficient at what he does. Professional and quick turnarounds, which is rare in this industry. He is extremely skilled at writing/producing/mixing, and very easy to work with.
Phinisey is one of the best producer, mixer, vocal arranger, writer, and vocalist I know. He is so easy to work and always brings a positive attitude and energy, and he's also really quick and efficient. He's absolutely become one of my favorite people to work with and I highly recommend him.
Watching DJ work is mesmerizing. He is super skilled, efficient, and focused, and a master at his craft! He is also incredibly easy to work with, and we got a ton done in a short period of time. Absolutely looking forward to working together again.
Phinisey is one of my favorite mixing engineers. He has a great ear and has an amazing ability to listen and communicate with the client and understand the vision that they have. I never hear anything but great mixes! He’s great to work with.
Phinisey, is an amazing engineer and all around artist. If a professional industry standard sound is what you're looking for he is the man to contact!
Phinisey is great with working with artists, really cares about the song and what it's trying to convey, and is super creative with sounds that are very unique to his style. Highly recommend collaborating with him on your next song!
Phinisey can truly do it all - produce, arrange, mix, sing, write, etc. On top of that, he's mellow, patient and a great communicator. He's highly invested in the music he makes with all of his collaborators and he'll push you to make your best music.
I look forward to every session with Phinisey .. He is creative, positive, great at collaborating and an amazing engineer ... He is also a very talented singer/song writer/ artist !!!
DJ brings out the best in your vocals, your use of melody and your songwriting skills. He adds to your sound without changing it. I would work with him and I am very proud of what he helped create.
I love working with him, he's not only a very thorough & talented engineer with great musical taste (his producing and writing chops are pretty crazy) but he's also patient, open to suggestions, and fun to work with.
DJ helped us they a very formative time in our career , he helped us redefine our sound and helped us make an amazing album that was actually just granted City Arts Magazines’ June album of the month
This man is a wizard at engineering and production. He took my music to the next level sonically. Just give him an idea or direction of what your going for and BOOM! he will take it there in minutes. If that’s not enough he can even bless your songs with some soulful vocals if need be. Is there anything this man can’t do?!
I came to Phinisey w a specific but vague idea of what I wanted, we spoke and emailed at length...his ability to communicate and divine the truth of a thing led to my vision being executed to a tee, there was very little pressure or anxiety working w this dude, he makes professional, apt suggestions for the betterment of the project. I owe him a lot of gratitude for his thorough, skilled work. Can’t recommend him enough. 🎧🎹🎙
I worked with DJ on two of my songs so far and I couldn’t emphasize enough how happy I am with the work DJ has done! He is a professional, nurturing and knowledgeable engineer I would totally recommend to anyone who needs quality production.
Phinisey is a rare breed of producer. He has his own vision but doesn’t push it on you, he listens and works intently on creating original sounds, and he is extremely easy to talk to. As an artist, it’s important to feel safe to comment, critique, and relax in the studio, and with Phinisey, it came naturally.”
Phinisey took one of my songs, mix and mastered it and my streams are over 500K plays cross-platforms. Great artists !
Phinisey took my music to the next level. His production, mixing and artistry is up there with the best of them. Would highly recommend.
