    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 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.
