    From the moment Caden and I began working together, he has been nothing short of attentive, determined and very genuine. I didn’t initially believe his age when he told me because he has a maturity and motivation about himself that’d you’d expect from someone with years of experience! Ironically, he has the years down and just so happened to start early. He listens to what you tell him when you have something in mind but enhances that idea. His work is clean and next level and he puts diligence and care into his releases. Looking forward to the day where Caden Jester is a house hold name.

    Ive known Caden for about two years now! His production style is next level and his mix and mastering game can easily be compared to some of the best in the business. As an artist myself, I have a huge appreciate for the way Caden makes his beats with such attention to detail. I recommend his for any project you have to work on! He knows what he is doing and has an insane amount of knowledge in music.

    An engineer/producer who cares about making the client satisfied with the finished product, Caden is a great option for a radio ready mix without the high price. If you are looking for a quick and efficient mix with someone who has the patience to accommodate all of your needs, Caden is the right choice for your next project.

    Caden knows his knobs. I worked with him with one of my upcoming releases and definitely plan on doing more. Once you talk about what you looking for with him the work flow is amazing, very quick and straightforward, I highly recommend his Mixing/Mastering services, cause he simply knows how to make music sound good.

    I have worked with Caden on many of my songs and he has always provided amazing music, mixing, and mastering. He is very accommodating and quick to respond. I only ever had a fantastic experience working with him and I plan to continue working with him on every future release of mine. Caden is a true professional and I highly recommend working with him.

    Caden has an excellent work ethic and genuinely cares about the result of the projects of which he is involved. His sound is fresh, and he takes recommendations and implements them well, while also providing valuable feedback.

    Caden is the most knowledgable sound engineer I have ever worked with. When I finish recording he goes into full music magician mode and makes me sound spectacular. His knowledge and equipment work in tangent to produce incredible, professional, polished work. I will most certainly work with him again in the future, and I highly recommend him.

    I have worked with Caden a few times on various productions in the past. He provides a very fast service and with that doesn't lack quality! He has provided Mixing & Mastering for me and I was impressed with the results. He's quick at responding to any queries you may have and if there is any issues he will address them promptly, I would 100& recommend Caden

    I’ve known Caden for about 3 years, and we’ve worked on about 4 tracks together. The first was a remix for a project which got about 200,000 plays on a YouTube advert in a week.

    We have worked together on my ideas and we have worked on his ideas. My last track from my latest was produced by Caden. It’s had 250,000 plays on Spotify and is being played in stores like H&M , Topshop and river island.

    He’s a mega honest dude and if he doesn’t dig something he will tell you, but he also isn’t precious and is willing to go the extra mile so you are happy as an artist.
    SLEEPING GIANT.

    Caden is very fast and easy to work with. In the end the output of this guy was a professional mixed and mastered dance/pop song.
    He truly knows what he's doing inside and out. To make it better, he responds very quickly to his clients. It's great to find such a talented and humble guy as well. Will definitely commission him again. Thanks!!!

    We ran across Caden for about two years ago and heard his tracks that was very good in quality and production. When we saw that Caden mixed and masterd the tracks we got thrilled. That was exactly what we needed to get the extra buff on our tracks that we lack on our own at that time. Working with Caden is like working with a friend that takes care about your ideas and comes with his own aswell to make the track better. He does an awesome job and we have used him several times now, and still going to do that! A awesome producer and friendly person, thanks!

    Working with Caden is like working with a dear old friend. Any project I’ve brought to him has been treated like it’s one of his own. The amount of care and attention to detail he puts into his work is truly inspiring. We’ve worked on several projects together and every time I never cease to be amazed by what he comes up with.

    As an artist my music is my life. I work hard at perfecting my craft and when I found Caden, I found someone who treated my work with the same care I pour into it myself. He gave 100% of his knowledge and expertise. He spent his personal time to answer questions & went above & beyond to provide insight of the industry that no one else had explained. His subtle enhancements to my work were outstanding, providing the missing elements and were a springboard of knowledge that will propel me to my own success. He helped my achieve the final product I have been pursuing for 3 years. Thanks Caden!

    Producing with Caden Jester has made me notice a big improvement in my music, he has allowed me to find my own style, which I probably would have never found with another studio. Caden gives you reassurance and also a lot of confidence when letting him work on your music; you know he will always give you constructive criticism. Every time I bring a song to Caden, he achieves its full potential, he gives it a very fresh and unique sound. Every time I work with him, I get a sensation of "I did something good", for example when going to the gym or eating healthy.

    I've worked with Caden on a number of releases for my projects. He's extremely professional, easy to work with, and his final masters always sound top notch.

Interview with Caden Jester

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

  2. A: The client proposes their project, whether it's a mix/master, production, etc. We discuss their budget, and agree on a price. The client either sends stems or the session file if they work in Logic Pro X, and we get to work.

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

  4. A: A track I worked on called "Creator" by Christopher Blake. It was mixed flawlessly, the vocals were processed beautifully, and the overall outcome of the track was something I was very proud of. I was the producer and mixing/mastering engineer.

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I am currently working on a plethora of singles to be available in 2018 and 2019. There is lots of pop, EDM, latin, dancehall, and island vibes. I am also in the processing of building my studio (with my own two hands!) from the ground up.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I have been raised in the digital age, so digital is just something I am more comfortable with.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: My promise to you: I will make your song sound great, and I will work until you are satisfied.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love taking a good song, and making it great. I love the reaction I get from my clients when I send them my version of their songs.

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

  14. A: I ask questions about deadlines, style preferences, payment methods, etc.

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

  16. A: Regarding mixing: When a sound/instrument is hidden in a track, people tend to boost up the volume on it to bring it to the front. Now, this is circumstantial, but utilizing subtractive EQing on other instruments in the same frequency range can make room for your sound/instrument and let it shine through the mix without making it too loud.

  17. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  18. A: Electronic music, pop, reggaeton/latin-influenced music, R&B, hip hop, and more.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: My strongest skills include producing, arranging (song composition), mixing, and mastering.

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

  22. A: I can bring energy to your mix, life to the arrangement, and a professional sounding overall product to the table.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: I have two Dynaudio MKII speakers ran through a Presonus Firestudio audio interface. I have a 27in iMac, and I run Logic Pro X. I have a Rode NT1-A mic, an external Chameleon Labs CPS-1 mic compressor/EQ, and a Novation ReMOTE 61 SL midi controller. This isn't all of my setup, but it's most of the important bits.

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

  26. A: One person I look up to is Dave Pensado. His mixing is impeccable, and he offers his knowledge for free on his Youtube channel.

  27. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  28. A: I mostly do mixing and mastering, however I have done numerous productions.
