    This guy is killing it each time, no mediocre stuff. Super talented and dedicated to the craft, on top of that he can go from rap/trap and rnb to house just like that!

    Rarely can I say that someone not only exceeded my expectations but actually created an entirely new standard for achievement like Mystee. He is reliable, thorough, smart, extremely good communicator and very friendly! I plan to continue to work with him for the long term.

    I have been collaborating with Stefan since 2017 and I have only words of praise for his talent, precision, ideas and vision of how the final product should sound.
    If you need quality sound design and arrangement you are at the right place.
    I highly recommend my man MYSTEE.

    I met Stefan through Up-Work and it is always a pleasure to work with him.
    I am grateful for his professionalism and efficiency in realizing every idea I came up with.
    As a musician, it’s not always easy to find common ground with another person when it comes to online collaboration but with Mystee I’ve never had a hard time getting to my goal.
    I look forward to every next project!
