Mixes and Masters with clarity, weight, dynamics & vibe
If your recordings could benefit from some Sonic Augmentation Utilizing Corrective Enhancements otherwise Known as (S.A.U.C.E.) Then I'm your guy.
Hi, my name is Andrew
I am mixing and mastering engineer who specializes in Hip Hop and R&B. I have been doing this professionally for 6 years and started learning the craft about 9 years ago. My passion for music goes as far back as at least 2007, back when my main instrument was the drums and not my ears.
Engineering is as much of a technical thing as it is creative. Don't get me wrong, knowing how and why to move the knobs sure makes the job a lot easier lol. But its more about taking that technical knowledge to use your tools to sculpt the mix to add vibe, depth, clarity and character. My goal is to take whats in your head and turn it into a WAV.
If the Sound Better example isn't your style of music there are much more audio examples on my website.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

I needed help with making my song sound spotify ready and Andrew made that happen even though It was recorded at my home studio, definitely coming back 💯
I had a recording session with Andrew and it was definitely one of the more comforting recording meet ups I've had. Overall it felt like a professional environment with an encouraging energy. Great finished product as well.
