All of the War Drum Mixing team is absolutely incredible. Though I had a general vision for my project, their great minds and collective creativity produced an even greater product than what I could have asked for. Rob and the rest of the team outdo themselves tremendously, and I wouldn't want to trust anyone else with my music.
Rob with War Drum Mixing is and has been one of the best engineers, producer, and artist. His (their) focus on clear, clean and satisfying mixes as well as the mastering is second to none. Satisfaction at every step and point within the project is a welcomed and appreciated service that they don’t take for granted. I will use this company (studio) and it’s engineers for all of my work as well as artist I work with. Above the expectation in the mix and mastering. It says five star, I’ll give it a 10 ⭐️
