  1. Review by Teledeath

    Good engineers leave their mark on your music without completely altering it. That describes Daniel @ Young & Cold.

    He's done two songs for me that needed very little revision after the first mix. Will work with him again soon.

    Excellent mix and will work with Daniel again in the future. I appreciate that he told me technically what he was doing with my song. Nailed it on the first version.
