I am glad that we have worked with Gündoğdu. He is a really talented mixer that understands what I wanted from the song. He did the mastering as well, and he really delivered. I would definetely recommend him to other musicians who are looking for great mixes!
As a band we were very happy with the work he's done. We did record some home made tracks for our "Better Days" and "Eventide" singles, and he did an awesome job mixing and mastering them! We will work with him again in our next EP.
