Professor Fox

Producer, Mixing and Mastering

Professor Fox on SoundBetter

My clients range from Chance the Rapper and Mac Miller to Eryn Allen Kane and Sidewalk Chalk. I mix in a hybrid fashion using outboard gear and plugins.

I have been an audio and music business professor for the last decade. I have produced, mixed, and mastered thousands of songs for both major label clients and indies. I take my time and communicate with my clients to best understand their needs. Hip hop, pop and EPIC drums are my specialty. I look forward to working with you.
