My definition of the Perfect Mix? The one that makes you happy ! But also the one that will make your fans love you. My philosophy at any stage of production is that the purest version of your vision is properly translated to final product.

4 ReviewsEndorse Dee Monuar
Dee completely nailed the score for my short film. I can only say, even though we had a super short deadline, his work brought up the film to a whole new level. His use of synthesizers and organic orchestration blew everyone's minds at the Film festival.
Dee is a competent and reliable producer. He makes extra effort to ensure that the final product is well done.
Dee mastered six songs of mine in a timely fashion and they all came out sounding incredibly professional. The difference between the mastered songs versus the originals (which were already great) was incredible and well worth the price. Dee is also easy to communicate with and will provide you with excellent service. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
What can I say? He's my go to guy for mixing and mastering for my music. I can be pretty picky with my tones and how I want to deliver my tracks and he pretty much nails what I ask for. I recommend him to everyone.
