Mixing & Music Production

Joey Mango on SoundBetter

Mixing, writing & producing since 2006. Engineer-geek BUT It’s all about the feel, the emotion. I aspire to understand the artist and what they want to portray as best as I can, and I trust my own taste. Open mind, patience and passion, let’s work!

28 year-old musician and engineer looking to expand from mostly working on joint projects and local artists to working with people from all over the world! I have a deep passion for music and engineering and I work all days, even if I don’t have clients.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden but I’m flexible! And we have internet right?

Interview with Joey Mango

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I do a variety of things from assisting other mixing engineers with prepping, tuning and mixing vocals, aligning drums but my passion is in writing tunes & mixing!

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: Right now I would say Ludwig Göransson & Andrew schepps top my list!

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work in the box in Logic. JBL speakers + sub and treated room. Reference listening in headphones and small speakers, also my fathers own homebuilt speakers!

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: When i get a project for mixing I will start off by listening through the whole song a few times, while also making minor level adjustments and do some "housekeeping" like setting up subgroups, (DRUMS, BASS, GUITARS, SYNTHS etc..), editing, crossfades etc.. and color coding. When Im done with that I will already have a feel for where i want to go and start adding EQ, compression to get the tone and balance and then going in more in depth with effects and automation. Usually Kick-snare-bass and vocals get done first to have a solid foundation. Sometimes i do like to send out maybe a vocal through a weird pedal to get a unique sound, whatever I feel it needs to sound like I want. Listening to the artist and communication is key of course also.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: Try setting up a bus/aux cutting of low end, adding chorus, maybe distortion and maybe even some reverb and then try sending your vocals through or maybe even bass to get some wide moving hi-mid and top-end to your track.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Kanye because hes crazy but also a day one inspiration! Intriguing.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: Started making beats back in 2006 sampling vinyl and chopping it up in an old roland workstation synth. Got into the mixing a few years later when I realized I really had a passion for it and always felt i can make this better.

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: Please label your tracks somewhat understandably, audio1 audio2 etc.. is a bit of a nightmare. And send references! what music do you like? And also preferably a demo so I know what Im working towards and can make it even better!
