I am Producer/Mixing Engineer
Hi my name is Raf!
I am originally from Switzerland but am living in Brooklyn, NY. I have worked with many up and coming artists in the electronic music world such as TKS ( Top Knotch Selektahs, Jo-B Sebastian, Limbo Chips and Izzy Perri. I have been producing everyday for the past 5 years and I love what I do!
I can make a full production around a bare bones song you have.
If you are a solo artist and want material to work with I am your guy!
I will mix and master any songs that you have recorded yourself or have recorded by anyone else.
I specialize in Pop, Electronic, Hip Hop and if I am very good at picking up any mood or vibe you would like to produce for you.
My strongest skill sets are mixing tracks down and getting them to sound as polished or as gritty as you want them to be.
Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
