    Amir was great to work with. He gave the song the energy it needed with his mixing. I gave detailed instructions on how I wanted it to sound and he nailed it.

    Great ear. Great work. Great attitude. Awesome guy. Does what he say he will do in the time he commits to. Dude has some heat and heavy range to mix any genre. Don't put this guy in a box. He can sonically bring any genre song to where it needs to be.

    AMAZING experience. I left with a beyond professional quality sounding song. He was really patient with me & my requests, and did way more for me than he had to!

    I would definitely recommend Amir Swain to anyone looking for a professional sound.

    This man has a true ear for music. Working with him has been one of the most humbling experiences I've had while making music. If you want your sound to be mastered and to be at a professional caliber, Amir is your guy. He is efficient, from a financial and music making perspective, and his experience in the industry is a huge upside. Choose him!

    Amir is one of the best engineers I've ever worked with. He is not only an engineer, he is a producer, a vocal producer, and much more. Every project I've done with him has turned out incredibly.... he is quick, efficient, and great with communication.
