Hi there! My name is Jeroen Egge a.k.a. Yung Roen, an all-round studio professional based Amsterdam (NL). My main focus is producing and mixing guitar driven music, but I also enjoy working as a recording and mastering engineer and as session guitar & bass player. Feel free to contact me any time to help you achieve the sound you desire!
With over 10 years of experience in the music industry, I like working with both big international music professionals as well as local upcoming talent. When I’m working with an artist I really focus on their vision and defining their sound and identity. I often find that this part of the creative process is overlooked.
Working with upcoming artists and helping them develop their sound is something I enjoy very much. When you come to me with an idea, I can help you from start to finish: from writing and arranging, to producing and mixing as well as distributing and marketing.
I get inspired by all types of music and I don’t work genre specific. Most of my work over the last years has focused on rock, pop, hip-hop, singer songwriter and americana. My style is influenced by American rock. Not overly edited but still with a live vibe to it and an overall smooth and polished sound.
When we start our collaboration I want to try and understand your vision and the goal of the final product. Once we agree on the sound, you will receive a first edit within 4 to 5 business days. We then discuss changes that need to be made. The final edit will take another 4 to 5 business days.
I work freelance in a couple of studios in the Netherlands. I try to match the right studio to the sound of the artists I work with. Most of the mixing is done from my home studio.

Such a nice working with Jeroen!
From test mix to final mix top notch conversation and tempo and: patience (on his side!)

I needed music for my promotional video and Yung Roen composed and produced the perfect song to accompany my message. He made sure the music got to my video editor in time and in the right format. I would definitely work with him again!
Our job was picked up quickly by Jeroen, with good results. Communication was smooth as well. A satisfied customer!
Great mixing engineer, I provided some feedback and he delivered the track fast and adjusted exactly as I meant.
Jeroen knows how to make a record, absolutely no compromises with his work. Great producers can make your music even better, and Jeroen is one of the best I've have worked with!
Great studio and producer. He has both analog and digital equipment, so artists have the freedom to choose what suits them best; just how it should be!
Talented producer with lots of conviction to long term projects with his artists. Songs are always mixed within a few days. Worked on numerous occasions together with Jeroen on various musical projects, always to my satisfaction.
Interview with Yung Roen
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Project Blue Book - Greatest Hits I. We built a recording studio in his bedroom in the center of Amsterdam and recorded and mixed a whole album from within that tiny little space.

A: Ariel Chobaz, he mixed and mastered a song I produced and it turned out really great.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'm a man of my word. I honor the agreement we make before starting the project. If things change, that is no problem, but we have to change our agreements, of course. So everybody is on the same page.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The creative process and the variety of work and clients.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The most common question I get is: "Is this possible." My answer is: "Yes. The possibilities in audio are limitless!"
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How do you want to sound like and what is story you want to tell with your music?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to find someone for the job that understands your vision and knows how to get your vision across to the audience.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Fender Telecaster, my iMac, UAD Apollo, Marhall amplifier en my Lewitt LCT 940. Then I still can record there!

A: I started off playing guitar in lots of bands in my teenage years and ended up studying audio engineering at SAE Amsterdam. Now I am working for over 10 years as a professional audio engineer/producer.

A: My style is influenced by American rock, not overly edited and has still a live vibe on it, but overall a smooth and polished sound.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Foo Fighters: I would just love to see Dave Grohl recording and learn from him
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly guitar driven music; from singer songwriter to rock.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Translation the artists vision to an actual song or sound.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As little as possible; I tend tot try and artist be the center of attention, without adding too much.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all I want to know what drives an artist, what's their particular vision and what they want to sound like. Als what's very import for me is what the goal of the recording is. Do you want a hit record or do you just want to release something on Spotify? With that information I try to produce and/or mix their work according to their wishes.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, mastering and production
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Just listen really good and let the music tell you what to do.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Fixing it in the mix. The whole chain has to be good, starting with a good song, good recording, god mix and finally a good master.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: This totally depends on the demand of the client and the song. Sometimes digital works better and sometimes analog. I personally prefer digital for a faster workflow, but nothing beats a nice analog chain.
