Pure sonic scientist.
Eest is a one of one. He is meticulous in his approach. Quality is never a concern with his level of expertise. He is very articulate, patient with his clients and ready to deliver on demand.
Eastbound Mixed and mastered two 10 track albums that I couldn’t be happier with. He takes the time to get things right because he wants to. Not for a check. Highly highly recommend.
He’s a beast
Eastbound did an amazing job, I’m very excited about the quality mix and master that he did for my song!
Great guy, highly skilled and efficient! Has an outstanding ear for music, mixing, mastering, as well as production!
Would recommend for any style of project!
This man is insane! He has an incredible ear and will undoubtedly elevate your songs to the next level!!! Super kind and personable and truly listens to your needs/wants.
Eestbound is an extremely talented engineer, I love receiving an A1 quality mix every time I work with him!
Eestbound once again, delivered such an amazing mix & master. My vision for how I wanted the song to turn out became a reality! Eestbound listened to things I wanted to change whilst also giving his professional input. For sure connecting him again!
Eastbound was incredible for mixing and mastering my remix. He's very talented. The mix was clean, the kicks were thumpy, he managed to properly EQ the track so the bass guitar and 808s didn't clash somehow, and he even added a few "texture" elements. I'd love to work with him again!
Very professional and easy to work with. Will definitely be returning in the future and recommend his services.
Eestbound always delivers the most fire mix/master
Eestbound is a sonic scientist, He really helped me bring my vision to life and gave his unique input as well. Honest, down to earth, and an insanely powerful creative force man. Eestbound is an exceptional engineer and a great guy! Whatever you want to do, he definitely knows how!!!!!
Highly professional and great at what he does. Mixed & mastered an entire EP for me and took the sonics to a new level. Huge difference between previous mixes and releases, and even added some valuable input on places where he thought improvements could be made on the production. Very satisfied.
Always great work and awesome to work with
Eestbound really knows how to mix a wide range of tracks to fit the sound you need. Highly recommend!
Eestbound was nothing short of amazing. Really brought my vision to life. We're already working on two other records. Highly Recomend.
Interview with Eestbound
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Knowing how & WHEN to use one or the other is key.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being able to sculpt sonics & manipulate sounds. There's something about tweaking knobs and hearing results that's just unbeatable.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to know as much as possible without sounding like an FBI agent. The more I know about the record and about the vision for it, the more efficient the process will be.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication solves everything.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Apollo x8, Neve Shelford Channel, API5500, Neve Portico II MBP & TC Electronic 1210
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Warm, punchy, wide, expensive, unique.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with PartyNextDoor, his music has lots of character & vibe.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: You need to have fun with it! Most importantly though, the song has to move you or make you feel a certain way.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually Hip-hop & RnB. However, I have worked on all kinds of genres and I love all kinds of music!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'd say my ear & decision making during mixing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to make things sound clean & expensive but with some grid too! I want to make sure the song is addicting & sounds good on ANY system.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the song and get familiar with the feeling/energy. Communication with the client is very important to make sure I start off on the right page in terms of approach to the mix. When I start mixing I work on the most exciting part first and make sure it has weight, then I build around that. Once everything sounds solid I like to add ear candy which makes the song stand out sonically & gives it replay value!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run a hybrid setup (analog & digital). Best of both worlds! I use the Universal Audio Apollo X8 as the heart of my studio & I have all my outboard gear routed through there. I use Genelec's as my monitors to ensure I can hear everything that's going on in the mix.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My biggest inspiration is Jaycen Joshua. I love his techniques & ways he approaches his work.
