Amazing! Really pleased with how this tune is sounding now. Thanks so much for all your advice and quick responses.
Jaytech helped me with 3 masters for progressive trance tracks. I am really satisfied with the results and he is always super professional and on time. He also provided small suggestion on how to improve mixdowns.
He is also really patient and detail oriented so I would also recommend mentoring with him given my personal experience.

Jaytech is my go-to guy when it comes to taking my sound up another level. He is fantastic at taking his extensive experience as a musician and articulating his advice. Extremely professional. I've worked with him on several mix/master projects and this time worked to get a feedback/mentor section on an arrangement of mine. I feel like my understanding of music arrangement and even music marketing just went up another level and am super appreciative. Highly recommend.
Jaytech's communication, input and work exceeded all my expectations! He really took my track to the next level and brought it to the profession level I was hoping to achieve. He kept me apprised of his progress and offered invaluable input. Thanks so much, Jimbo - I'll definitely be using your services again!
Interview with Jaytech | James Cayzer
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Clients are requested to send all parts with EQ and compression removed, spatial effects can be left on if desired. My first step is to identify which musical elements shine through the most, and what the artist is aiming to convey with their music and mix. A rough mix from the artist is kept in the project at all times. From there, I analyse what aspects of the record can be emphasized to make it really shine. To finish, masters are amplified to industry standards and tested again similar tracks to check things like balance in the frequency spectrum.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I began with a classical background in piano, which I have played since the age of six, and released my first vinyl record in 2001, when I was 16. I began studying at the Canberra School of Music in Australia before discontinuing when my electronic career started taking off. After relocating to the UK, I spent three years touring the world with trance stars Above & Beyond and worked as a studio engineer for their Anjunabeats record label in London. Now located in Phoenix, I still work with Anjunabeats from time to time and also release music on my own label, Positronic.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I really enjoy seeing the diverse range of ways people put their tracks together, and mixing music for others helps me with my own music as well.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: There are no wrong answers when it comes to requests or desires for approach to your mix - it is your music and your message. A good mix engineer will adapt to their clients' wishes and will happily make any changes required, so do not be afraid to ask.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Forward-thinking melodic electronic music.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hans Zimmer - one of the great composers of our time, and he has an amazing studio!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you can use as little EQ as possible during the creation process, you'll place more emphasis on choosing the right sounds and fitting things together more organically, allowing for a more natural-sounding mixdown later on.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My main love is electronic music, namely progressive house and trance. I have also worked with acoustic, experimental and pop music, as well as music for advertising.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Having spent the last decade touring globally, I've been able to experience first-hand how tracks translate between small systems (such as laptops and iPod earbuds) to large festival scenarios with 10,000+ people.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I regularly help artists hone in on the best aspects of their sound that might often be overlooked by others, and bring them forward so that they may be better presented to the world.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide full stereo mixdowns of tracks with option of club and radio-ready mastering.
