Ketil Schei on SoundBetter

World-class mixes at a reasonable price. Also specializing in vocal recording, editing and getting the vocal to sound like a million dollars.

100 million+ streams on Spotify working pop and rap music for a couple of decades.

With mentors like Bruce Swedien ( Michael Jackson ) & Tony Maserati ( Katy Perry, The Weekend, Beyonce etc ) I have a trick or two up my sleeve.

I also specialize in mixing vocals to EDM tracks for pitching to labels and management.

    I was lucky enough to meet Ketil a bit over half a year ago, we started working together maybe 1 month or 2 after that, and he is the most professional and talented person I've ever met in this business. Extremely efficient, hard working, caring (both about the projects and everyon involved in it) and serious. He delivers what you ask for if not more, constantly. Working with him, as an artist, has only made me better. That's one of the best things about working with people on his level, they push you to become better too. So yes, he is definitely someone you should be working with.

    ELLA
