Aleksi Godard on SoundBetter

Aleksi has over a decade of professional experience as a drummer, mixer, and producer. The artists he's worked with have accumulated millions of streams. He graduated summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music's Music Production and Engineering program and started his career as a General Assistant at the legendary Electric Lady Studios.

Aleksi has always been surrounded by music since an early age. His mother was conducting a choir when he was still in the womb, and his brother would practice upright bass all day before joining one of Paris’ finest orchestras.

After a few years playing drums over Rock records, he finally started to take serious lessons at the Conservatory of Noisiel were he studied classical percussion, jazz drumset, piano, voice, arranging, and composition for 10 years. After graduating from high school, he studied for a year at the Music Academy International of Nancy with some of the best drum teachers in the country, finishing as the valedictorian of his class.

Back in the Parisian suburbs, he graduated with honors from his conservatory and started teaching drums while playing shows every week. After receiving a scholarship from Berklee College of Music, Aleksi moved to the US to study Music Production and Engineering, exploring new horizons such as Hip-Hop or Electronic Music, forging friendships with some of the most talented musicians in the world.

He then moved to NYC and started his career as a General Assistant at Electric Lady Studios. He currently works as a mixing engineer, producer, and drummer for a wide range of artists and studios including Alex Epton, Jerry Barnes, Germano Studios, Boyish, Carol, and many indie artists all over the world.

  1. Review by Martti J.

    Damn what can I say... Aleksi is an absolute pro and I'm so glad I decided to work with him. I had a fairly bare arrangement and a couple of vocal layers, but somehow he was able to create this huge space and gave attention to every little detail. His work process is very organized, and gives detailed instructions to get everything started. I highly recommend Aleksi for your next project. I'm definitely looking forward to working with him again.

  2. Review by Epiphany

    I had 9 songs mixed, mastered and produced by Aleksi with 3 of them also adding drums/percussion recorded live by Aleksi. Aleksi is great to work with and brings a creative ear to the project. He communicates in a timely manner and is a wonderful collaborator. He helped make my songs sound like I imagined them to sound even when I did not have the right words to describe what I wanted. I highly recommend Aleksi and would gladly work with him again!

    Aleksi is an excellent mixer who has a very fast turnaround - Always communicative and really good at taking creative notes to fit the sound to the artist's direction. He has all the tools to deliver solid and powerful mix that anyone would be happy with. I highly recommend him - you'll come out with an amazing song!

    I had the pleasure to work with Aleksi multiple times, as a Drummer and as an Engineer. He is professional, reliable, talented and very attentive to details. He makes the environment enjoyable so that creativity is never stopped. I would recommend him to anybody in need of an engineer or drummer. 100%

    I have worked with Aleksi respectively as a recording engineer, producer, drummer and mixing engineer. Each time we have worked together he has been truly professional and easy to work with. He has a great ear and is well invested in the vision of the artist, whilst also bringing a fresh perspective. As a mixing engineer he is thorough and artistic, and I have always loved the final product. I highly recommend hiring Aleksi for whatever you need!

    Aleksi is an incredible producer and mixer, with an amazing ear for framing the music and sounds around the heart of the lyrics. He and I have worked on many songs together, sometimes where we produced together, and sometimes when I gave him full reign of the creative production and mixing, and I have loved how each combination has turned out. I would highly highly recommend him as your choice for producer/ mixer/ drummer/ friend!!
