I specialise in mixing Dub/reggae. Most of my success is in this area. I have experience mixing all genres from rock to EDM. My last album I mixed went into the top 40 uk chart. Album entitled ‘Dread Times’ Recently Working with the sweet vocals of Jamaican born ledgend Earl16 who has been releasing reggae hits since the 70s.
I had the pleasure to engineer and mix for 90s chart toppers Louchie Lou and Michie One and work with Mick Jones from the Clash in his London studio bunker.
I can bring a demo song to life and mix it in my professional home studio with the best equipment money can buy. Top class Genelec speakers and 15 years of experience in production and sound design as well as engineering ensure the mix will be Radio Ready.
I honestly can say I spend long hours and work very hard to get the best possible sound whilst adding space and warmth. Quality reverbs and delays and a current sound.
I currently perform with the band Dreadzone and tour extensively throughout the uk and Europe. I specialise in electronics and fx as part of the live show.
I look forward to working with many new clients.
