music needs to be respected, sometimes people don't need just an engineer with just tech, but an engineer who understands an artist point of view without being overbearing. I'm patient as not all artists communicate verbally as well as others, if you have an idea and think its silly... tell me because sometimes its those ideas that are best. ;-)
love music, worked as head technician in many venues, alongside dj's like Martin Garrixx to groups like the Temptations. i have been a professional engineer for over 20 years and a studio mix engineer for at least 12years, my mix ethos is organic and respectful to the artists work. and attention to detail not matter how small. nothing complicated. i have worked with House of Vans london / SW4 festival / EDC festival / Glastonbury as head stage tech, i have mixed for Skepta as tour tech (uk), Scot Garcia as mastering engineer for Kronik records, i have releases on many Drum and bass labels and i mix all forms of music as i study even to this day on new and traditional ways of mixing and thoughts behind mixing. this in turn makes my decisions on mixing quicker than most.
