i gave Mark the song but needed him to put all the pieces together in a modern EDM fashion which he did brilliantly.very impressed with Sound Quality at the end and very balanced Mix.He works quickly also to deadline.Recommed.I'm looking forward to next Project already
Mark is beyond amazing! Each session I explain what kind of sound I’m going for and he creates something that is exactly what I want. It’s nice to know that you can give him one idea, and he’ll run far with it. He’s professional, quick and an overall great producer. He hears and points out things that I would have never noticed! I highly recommend booking a session with him, you won’t regret it! :)
