    really did an awesome job. It was clear to see that he took his time to MAJA understand what vibe the song wants to convey and in what direction the artists wants to go. The communication was better than I´ve ever experienced on sound better and he quickly realized anything I had in mind. Can highly recommend this gig to anyone thinking about ordering on this platform.

    I worked with Maja for a project of mine, the result was amazing! He really listened to my references and idea that I sent him, during the process we worked back and forth, which let me feel really respected. Will work with him again for sure!

    I work with MAJA Music on two tracks and they were wonderful. Always very responsive and open to making changes even if it was just small details in the production and mixing. The recording session was also an amazing experience and i felt very appreciated as a singer and respected as an artist. Would highly recommend.

Interview with Maja

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: As a music producer, it is not only important of your producing skill but also has to have a vision or could see the potential of the song. As a mix engineer, it is essential to know what your clients taste and what he/she is looking for in this project.

  3. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  4. A: When it comes to mixing, a lot of customers will ask about should they bypass the plugins or not. My answer is always, it depends! Deactivate all of them except the ones that are important for songwriting and sound design. A certain type of saturation or a special delay are effects that you should leave on. Filter-sweeps are also something you should keep. EQs and compressors that you use for creating your own rough mix should be turned off. If you use send-effects (like e.g. a reverb that returns in parallel to the source on another track), please also export them and send them to me.

  5. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  6. A: I think the boundaries between, songwriting, producing, and mixing is getting more and more blurred, so sometimes we will need a bit of time discussing and checking the files are corrected and ready to bring it to the next stage.

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

  8. A: Less is more and trust your gut.

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

  10. A: I was inspired by a lot of artists in Pop and Rock. From all-time legends like Elton John, Queen, Coldplay, and Onerepublic to modern Bands and Producers.

  12. A: I produce mostly for Pop Artists, Indie-Pop Artists, Singer-Songwriters, etc.

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

  14. A: I would like to work with anyone to who I can contribute my taste, creative ideas.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: Do you have a reference track that could more or less represent what's in your mind?

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

  18. A: Feel free to discuss with me, the more we talk about it, the images will become more clear and precise.

  19. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  20. A: I will listen carefully to clients' references track and add my own taste/sound into the production appropriately(If needed).

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

  22. A: I have been producing and mixing for several singer-songwriters and companies around the world since 2012.

  23. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  32. A: I would say Pop, Indie Pop, though it is difficult to define the style due to I am inspired by various artists.

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

  34. A: I spend a lot of time listening to and evaluate to my client's voice. It can be from just a small idea and expand into a song production. I make feedback back on the way, to make sure I and my clients are in the right direction.

  35. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  36. A: I use Logic Pro X or Ableton for producing, and Logic Pro X for Mixing. Mix and record vocals, instruments at a big studio in Funkhaus Berlin.
