Hi, I am an 18 year old mix engineer that is currently studying audio engineering. I also make old school hiphop beats. I have been passionate about audio for years now and would be happy to work with all types of artists to produce great music.
Mixing - $50 p/track (discount if more than 3 tracks)
Recording - $50 p/track (acoustic duos, solo acts or rappers only as my studio is small.)
Recording + Mixing 90 p/track
