    very helpful, worked with me on tweaking a few revisions of my mix beforehand and helped me to identify an odd compression issue that I was having... and the finished product is smooth , clear, radio ready! ... I'll continue to be a repeat customer, thanks Yukon!

    Yukon is world class. Super polished and professional each and every step of the way. He'll bring your song to new heights you didn't see coming. He's really worth it. Highly recommend.

    Punchy, dynamic, yet smooth and enjoyable, stays tight at higher volumes... I tried 3 others in SoundBetter, same song, and Yukon is the obvious pro. And a cool cat too! You won’t be disappointed!

    Awesome quality masters! Yukon made communication easy and was speedy with the response time, couldn't have asked for a better experience. I will definitely be using him again for any upcoming projects!

    I swear I didn't really understand mastering until working with Yukon. I'd get stuff back and I'd be like, yeah well...it's loader and there's less money in the budget. Yukon has changed all that. My only regret is that I can't go back in time and have him master everything I've ever recorded

    Yukon has become my go-to man for mastering, and that's saying something as I've worked with Stirling Sound and 301 mastering amongst many others. But Yukon always pulls the sounds out nicely in the mix and on this particular song also did some post mastering finessing after I noticed a crackle that the mixer had left in. He went back and amended that, which I was very grateful for. Nice guy and a pleasure to deal with.

    Yukon delivered a beautiful master on the track I sent him: bright and wide, which brought out a few hidden elements of the mix. Will be back to him again next time.

    Yukon was super easy to work with and his master was perfect on the first try. He knows how to master your song radio ready... not too bold, but clear and smooth on every listening device. Great ear, and highly skilled, you won't regret it.

    Yukon was very professional and comfortable to work with. He delivered exactly what I was looking for from the very first track sent. He will listen to your needs and work with you to find the sweet spot you are looking for. He even edited out minor recording sounds without even asking him to! He knows how a mastered track should sound like, and he will deliver that with the listeners in mind. Pick Yukon.

    Yukon is amazing. He took my song to a level that I never thought it could reach. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His level of precision and detail is like nothing I have ever heard.

Interview with Yukon

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I most commonly do Mastering for my clients. I am also confident in my mixing and recording abilities and love working on most any part of a record.

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: I have been lucky to work with a number of legendary engineers and producers and am most inspired by Alan Parsons. He is friendly, respectful and a professional gentleman. He is an amazing musician and has an ear that can't be beat. I have incorporated more from working with him into my technique than any other mentor I've had.
