Jaytech | James Cayzer on SoundBetter

I'm Jimbo, better known for producing records as Jaytech. I regularly assist producers in getting the best sound out of their tracks, and offer an array of mix, master & production services.

James “Jimbo” Cayzer (a.k.a. Jaytech) has fifteen years experience in the audio industry and is known for featuring new electronic artists on his radio show and podcast, Jaytech Music. In addition to regularly screening tracks for the show, he has also honed his craft for assessing and improving new music as a previous label A&R for Anjunabeats / Anjunadeep.

As an artist, Jaytech has been involved in the creation of two US iTunes #1 dance albums (Anjunadeep 02 & 03) and a Beatport Trance #1 in 2014 (Super8 & Tab vs Jaytech - “Code Red”). His artist albums “Everything is OK” and “Multiverse” were released to global critical acclaim.

Twelve months ago he started his own imprint, Positronic Digital, and in 2015 the label released its first mix compilation, Positronic Collective, signing over twenty new electronic artists. To assist some of the newer artists reach the full potential of their sound, Jimbo worked closely with them to create stem mixdowns of their tracks in his carefully calibrated studio.

Having just completed his third artist album "Awakening", Jimbo’s obsession with sound is entering a new realm of professional polish, and he’s now opening that sound up to the next generation of production talent.

    If you’re looking to get one of your tracks mixed or mastered I’d highly recommend Jaytech. He took the time to answer all of my questions, gave me good technical feedback, and worked patiently with me until we had balanced master that I was happy with. I would definitely go to Jay next time I need a mix or a master.

    This is the 2nd time I have worked with Jaytech, and the experience is always top notch! He mixed the A-side of my very first EP that was signed to a label and released globally! Jaytech has a gift of bringing out the best in a track, and he is also so easy to work with and delivers results in a very timely manner without sacrificing quality!

    Ever since I've heard of Jaytech's mixdown/mastering service I've been meaning to hit him up one of my tracks. It was the right decision! He gave the track the polish I was looking for, even explaining the adjustments he made to the feedback I gave. I'll hire him again for sure! I recommend to anyone looking to get a great mix. Thanks Jaytech! :)

    Another stellar job done by Jaytech. This is the 3rd song I have had James mix and master and most certainly will not be the last. His attention to detail is unmatched, and considering Jatech is still making hit songs in dance music, I know my song is in good hands.

    Jaytech was absolutely amazing and such a joy to work with. I had been following his podcast and music for a few years now and was very aware of the quality of his work, so when I found out he was offering mixing and mastering services I flipped. He was incredibly prompt and easy to work with. 10/10 would hire again.

    Jaytech did his mastering magic on a rather minimal vocal track available for preview here:

    I expected no less than Anjuna quality and that's what I received. Highly recommend. Quick turnaround time as well. Waiting for my track is not something that really existed here as it was such a quick job. I am thoroughly satisfied.

    I used Jimbo to master my last track and it came back sounding awesome. Jimbo really knows his stuff and I'd recommend him to anyone looking to polish their music to a professional standard. Along with his production skills, he's also a bloody nice chap.

    I've already got my next track over to him for a touch of Jimbo magic.

    We've been following Jaytech for some time now and love his music! His tracks are always recognisable for their high production quality so James was the obvious choice to master our track for us. We were very happy with the result and will continue to send our tracks his way for mastering!

    James mastered my first experimental sound work. He did a great job; sensitive to the intimacy and acoustic nature of the work; helping the sound extend out and fill just the right space, retaining clarity without overwhelming the listener. Fantastic. I'd recommend him without hesitation.

    Jaytech did a full stem mix of my track "The Other Side" off of his new compilation from his label Positronic Digital. I was really impressed by how it came out. It really made the track pop out to its fullest potential. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a solid mix.

Interview with Jaytech | James Cayzer

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

  2. 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.

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

  4. A: Whilst living in London I assisted Above & Beyond in going through their extensive catalogue of music and converting the projects into a format that could be performed by the group live on stage for a special show Beirut, Lebanon. I played an opening DJ set to 10,000 people, and then seeing the live show in action was an unforgettable experience.

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

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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 Berlin, I still work with Anjunabeats from time to time and also release music on my own label, Positronic Digital.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: Forward-thinking melodic electronic music.

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

  14. A: Hans Zimmer - one of the great composers of our time, and he has an amazing studio!

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

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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. My mix approach allows for mastering to be an in-built part of the process, and I now mix and master all my own music.

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

  24. A: I am inspired by Madeon for his relentlessness in squeezing the most energy out of every track, by Morgan Page for his ever-expanding quest for improving studio disciplines, by Imogen heap for her ability to sing, perform, record and produce all her music.

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

  26. A: I provide full stereo mixdowns of tracks with option of club and radio-ready mastering.
