I'm a young and talented freelance audio engineer based in Colombo, providing professional music recording, online music mixing and mastering services for over 4 years.
I'm a die-hard 60's-90s music fan with a good understanding of sound behaviour and approaches all projects with a balance of technical proficiency and musicality.
I've worked with many nationally and internationally successful artists as well as countless local and independently talented artists, over a variety of genres. As a recording and mixing engineer, I’ve been lucky enough to work with some exceptional artists including Dorean Sean, Senaka Batagoda, Janath Kulathilake, Angelo Egiuann and Sachith Welikala.
After working often on folk, rock, acoustic music for the first 3-4 years of my career, I've been focused on recording, mixing and mastering more of country, alternative, rock, metal and pop ever since. Overall, I have consistently researched and developed my own creative and unique techniques to get the most professional, enjoyable, attractive and massive post-production output. such as (parallel compression techniques, mix bus compressions techniques, stereo miking, re-amping, stem mastering techniques, etc:)
