Super cool mix!! A pleasure to work with.
I really wanted a timeless sounding master for my recent project titled DESIGNER MUSIC. I asked around and Derek was referred to me by a fellow engineering friend of mine. Derek was definitely the guy for the job. Everything was completed in a professional and timely manner. Not only did the masters sound incredible but Derek went above and beyond by sharing with me some extra knowledge about ISRC's and how they can be embedded into the actual masters. I am extremely satisfied.
Really easy to work with, fast turnaround time with top-notch quality!
Derek is a super talented, experienced and knowledgeable engineer! I've worked with him directly on numerous projects over the last five years and he is HIGHLY recommended!!!! Genuine, nice, and super professional!
Derek is a big up and coming talent in the world of mastering. He's trained in all the right places and come through the ranks of a well known studio but just as importantly, he's a great people person and very easy to work with. Highly recommended, especially for electronic music
Derek is a great mastering engineer and a great person! Love his work - he is super professional, personable, and his masters sound AMAZING! Highly recommended.
Derek has been my go to for all mastering purposes. His level of quality and attention to detail is really unrivaled by anyone else I've worked with in the past couple years. Flawless mastering for our vinyl and digital releases. Derek's quick turnaround and great communication make for an excellent experience.
As co-owner and label manager for SOUP Music, Derek has become my go-to mastering engineer and has mastered a majority of our 30+ releases. His ears and final product are second to none and even our artists are now asking where we get our tracks mastered. Highly recommended for any style of music.
