Josh is a consummate professional. His communication throughout the whole process was outstanding. His ability to follow the rough mix while tweaking things with his own flavor is awesome. He was very patient with me as I needed to complete an extra step for the song after I commissioned him to work on it. His service is excellent. The mix and master came out sounding great and radio ready. If you send Josh clean takes and some nicely recorded stems he can turn grapes into wine!
Josh is incredible. He got the exact vibe I was going for and added so much more. Extremely talented and quick to respond as well. Can’t wait to collaborate again!
Josh is very attentive and open to collaboration. He does great work!
Josh was so speedy on these songs. I’m so impressed and no revisions needed!

Josh is a great engineer and I enjoyed working with him. He was very attentive to my needs as an artist and didn't judge my artistic vision.

Best of the best! Like I said before..
Josh did a excellent job on the mix in 1 day. I really enjoyed the finish product (Mix).
Josh made the whole process of taking my instrumental and vocals and turning them into play ready. He mixed and mastered the project so well, every instrument and frequency blended so well with one another, and there was no overstepping or overbearing. He has the most amazing ear for pitch correction and tuning, so you can feel at peace with everything that he's gonna do. Definitely wanna collaborate with him in the future!
Most importantly, Josh became a friend - hee's so good at what he does!
Just got back the final mix/master of my next single and Josh absolutely crushed it! He's got one of the best ears in the biz. Always looking forward to working with him on future projects!

An incredible artist / writer / and buyer! Thanks for the work man
100% worth it. Josh is a great dude who does an insane job. He responds very quick and is really looking to get the best sounding project back to you. Would recommend to anyone!!!
What can I say about this remarkable and talented guy right here?
I actually can say a lot. After years of recording and going through numerous engineers to find someone who can put emphasis not only on vocals but the mix as well. He remastered a song I'm re-releasing and the outcome was extraordinary! I can't stop listening to the newest version Josh did. I can't listen to the original anymore. Lol. Josh is the way to go! If his references are not enough for whoever is thinking about working with him. Let me be the first to tell you. This guy knows his stuff! ~10 stars~
Josh didn't mean
IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW.. Josh is one of the most down to earth dudes you’ll met. I’ve been working with Josh for the past 3+ years, he has truly helped me find my voice and bring out all the gold.His intuitive spirit really helps get things flowing in the right direction. I trust him to bring my vision to life and he has yet to fail me, not only does Josh mix and produce bangers, that boy has crazy songwriting abilities and always a catchy melody or two to back it up. If your looking for someone to help cultivate a specific sound Josh is the Man. Bless up bro!
Working with Josh was honestly one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I had a vision and he had the tools and the knowledge to bring that vision to life. Very Talented on multiple DAWs, and can easily find exactly what you are looking for. Definitely would recommend to work with Josh if you are ready to elevate your musical persona.
Josh is very proactive when doing a project he brings fresh ideas and his creativity is amazing. Arrepues, fine
Knowing Josh throughout the past decade he has always been very talented, honest, and hardworking. Attention to detail and desire for each project to be at its best is what makes him such a phenomenal engineer, mixer, and producer. He has an unique ability to see the best in the people he is working with and to help pull out their fullest potential. He is an established influential professional in his field with a disarming, humble, and humorous personality that produces great results. If you’re wanting quality and to take your projects to a higher level, Josh is the partner that delivers.
Josh is a kind and very talented soul in the music industry. He is the last to leave, always reaches for the extra mile in his projects and has a fantastic ear too. He's musical and knows the engineering world so well. He isn't afraid to enter new sonic territories either, a big plus! Paired with his infectious personality and a good sense of humor, humble demeanor, Josh is irreplaceable. I so look forward to working with him again and again!
In the decade that I've known Josh and the countless amount of sessions we've had within those ten years, there hasn't been one session in which he did not amaze me. He's by far the quickest, smartest, and most creative producer I've ever worked with. As recent as a few months ago, I asked him to be the main producer, engineer, and mixer on a collaborative album featuring over twenty artists including the incomparable Lalah Hathaway. Without his level of expertise in music production, we would have been lost. He's professional, brilliant, and just fun to be around. Highly recommended!!
Josh is a phenomenal engineer, songwriter and producer. He brings positive vibes, creativity and constructive feedback to every project. I highly recommend working with him.
The first time I worked with Josh was on a song. He encouraged me not to be shy with my voice. Next, I asked him to help me with a Fanta girl video that I was trying out for. I was really satisfied with the outcome of both projects. In particular with the beat I was provided with for the song and how funny the video was. Also, I am working on another video project/song about the armor of God for a contest that I've asked him to help me with. Thank you Josh, I look forward to working with you on this new project.
I've been Recording my songs, mixing and mastering with Josh for over 4 years, and he never disappoints. Always professional, knowledgeable, and really helpful. I would recommend his services for anybody that wants quality and a professional sound. Really worth it!
A great engineer with a a lot creativity. You won't be disappointed with your project. He has worked on my song and did an amazing mixing my bass guitar. I had the opportunity to work with virtually and in the studio. His dedication, attention to detail and quality is amazing. Price reasonable as well. Definitely will use him again.
Josh has done tremendous work with our international artists at FRE. His ability to assist artists in giving their best performance and sharpening their skill set whether producing, vocal producing, recording or mixing has been instrumental to our growth. I truly recommend Josh, he’s pure class.
Josh was amazing!! First time working in a studio and Josh made it incredibly easy to get my creative directions across! Already made two tracks for my project I’ve been creating, and he had mixed them and recorded them excellently. He’s not afraid to give suggestions on how to improve the track! He literally turned my song into a masterpiece!! Definitely coming back to finish what we started! Thank you Josh this would have not been possible without you! A true professional in the business
Interview with Josh Florez
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently did a project for an artist named Terrell Grice. This project featured 23 of the most talented singers in the game! Avery Wilson, Brooke Simpson, and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. I recorded almost every single vocalist and also mixed and mastered the majority of the project. It's called "An Invitation to the Cookout." (available on all streaming platforms)
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Various projects for some of my clients who are either independent or signed to Republic Records, OVO and Atlantic Records.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: There is a producer named GEKKO who is incredible! I'm a huge fan of his work and he is on the site!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I love the convenience of digital! But I sure do love run vocals through a nice mic and analog gear!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is that I truly care. I care about the hard work they put into their craft, and my job isn't to get in the way. I'm here to help bring YOUR vision to life & I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it doesn't feel like a job!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can the song be louder?" My answer is YES, of course. But we will loose dynamics and live in the record AND the streaming platforms are going to bring the volume down on our song if it is coming in too loud.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Newer artists tend to think that sessions are supposed to be super fast and beat themselves up when they are making some mistakes or simply warming up. Know this: 1. Music takes time, and luckily we have lots of it! 2. I'm the most patient person you will EVER meet.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are the deadlines? Have you practiced your material?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't be scared to ask questions. Most of us are here to help! I'm so inspired by artists who invest in their craft. It's a true honor to be trusted with others art.

Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Justin Timberlake. His voice is insane and he has created an inspiring balance of music/film/and life. He's not always putting out music... but when he does... It's killer stuff!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't over think it!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: R&B, Urban, Pop, Dance, Hip-Hop, Indie, Christian, Trap, Country
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Mixing and Vocal Recording/Production
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to bring intention to a song. I'm a firm believer that simplicity can be quite beautiful. I'm very creative and love to try as many options as possible on a song BUT I never force something that doesn't feel like it truly belongs.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: This always depends on the client, deadlines and etc. But first, I like to get all details possible about the project and then I will make an assumption about the turn around. I hit the studio everyday at 8 am - I have fun and create the first half of the day and then do mixing or production work for the second half of the day.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a studio in Hollywood called Chalice Recording Studios. I have access to a great mic locker with tons of vintage and high quality gear.
