(Online) Drum Recording Service
I am offering the (online) drum recording and mixing service worldwide to help artists to get well-recorded drums. Recording drums takes a lot of time and is difficult to get it right. With many years of experience as a drummer and producer, I can give your song(s) the sound that it needs. Just send me the guide track, let's videocall about the sound and parts that you have in mind and you'll receive the recorded drums after.

(Online) Mixing Service
Over the last few years I had the pleasure to mix artists like 10CC, UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Xila, Roxi Jasper, Stefano Bianchini, Eric Steckel, and many more. Can't wait to work on your music too!

Over the years I have build a network with a lot of great musicians. Need a certain type of vocal, guitar, bass or key track for your song? Just let me know!

Starting at the age of 2/3 with playing drums, I grew up with rock music (Golden Earring, Eric Clapton, Bryan Adams). Later on bands like Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Alter Bridge got my attention. At the age of 19 I started producing music because other producers couldn't get the sound I hear. Now many years later I'm producing all kinds of genres and artists.

Can't wait to work on your music!

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

    We have hired Maikel to mix the bands 10cc and UB40 feat. Ali Campbell. With both mixes, we were very satisfied after receiving the first mix. Maikel is very easy to work with, understands what the artists and their music need, and is knowledgeable in his profession. Highly recommended!

    Maikel has mixed and mastered various films for my production company Amain Films. The films not only got an incredible boost audio-wise, but the overall viewing experience got so much better!!

    Maikel's drum tracking and mixing took my song to the next level. His tasteful approach immediately made the track come to life, and the result is a production I'm very proud of. Highly recommended!

    by Eric Steckel

    Maikel Roethof has what I call the "golden ears," and I don't use that term often. He knows that the track needs and makes it happen. His mixes are dynamic, intense, and inspiring. His attention to detail when tracking was some of the finest I've seen in 17 years of recording and performing worldwide.

    by Graham Gouldman - 10cc

    Just had a chat with Graham and we are both very happy with the first mix. It's sharp and full of energy. Sometimes live concert recordings can sound a bit dull without the visuals, but this one stands out on audio alone.

    I have been there several times with my jazz band Roxi Jasper & Suits to record and mix our music. I have heard some of his other work too. Whether it’s rock, electronic music or jazz, Maikel truly understands his craft as mixing engineer aswell as recording engineer. Besides that, he always comes with ideas to spice up the songs we recorded to give it ‘that’ little extra to make it more unique.

    Maikel is an overall cool guy. He is very patient and really listens to the wishes and ideas of the artists he works with while still keeping his own signature sound.

    Maikel is very talented and enthousiastic, i loved working with him and would/will definitely work with him again :)

  9. Review by Chendo Smit
    by Chendo Smit

    Worked with Maikel trying to find my own sound, he made me make a list of about 10 songs that I really liked production-wise, we listened to them all and that way he got a clear view of my type of style. After this, we started on a song idea that I had for ages and for which I couldn't find a suitable producer. He instantly knew what I wanted and clicked with me, which was an amazing experience which I can definitely endorse.
