The song finisher. I make the song grow on the listener that they usually forget the number of times its been on repeat. Appealing sound that stays relevant.

I am a songwriter who is a trained engineer and producer. I give a song what it needs. I also advise on song arrangements sometimes creating sections that the song needs.And I am also very good at comping and tuning vocals. If I cant fix it, its not worth fixing. I also mix for other producers, enhancing their music.
I interpret songs in the mix. Sometimes I create special effects, using interesting elements within the song to give it a signature sound.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    As advertised. Jide saved a botched mix and made it ready for radio! Communicated well and ensured that strong choices were made for the song!

    I’m an artist based in Los Angeles and have been extremely amazed by the awesome work Jide did on my album, which made it on the ballot for the 2019 Grammy Awards. He also did the track for my latest single , which has gotten amazing response. I’m looking forward to making more music with the Mixmaster !!!
