    Dean's dedication to quality of sound, groove, dynamics & the story that music convey is just some of the few reasons why I keep calling Dean for my own projects. He's phenomenal in what he does professionally and working with I'm is a real pleasure, vibewise as well. He always has a big smile on his face and a warm attitude that will comfort you in challenging times in the studio. I highly recommend hiring him for any of your creative projects! Dean Albek will make them bloom!

    Dean is a bona fide professional. His technical knowledge as an engineer wowed me again and again while we worked together.

    I was never worried about the status of my project. Dean is an excellent craftsman and diligent in his work. His estimates were accurate and his prices were fair.

    I would highly recommend Dean to all of my musician friends. My record sounds fantastic and I am very happy.

    Dean is a true professional with technical proficiency and deep understanding of the platform. Working with him has been a great experience as his work ethic will make sure you get nothing but the best results. Dean is flexible in his work style - he'll direct you to where he thinks things sound best, and will follow you wherever you go as well. Which in this work environment is very important.
    Above a professional Dean is also a musician which makes his choices backed up with musical knowledge and intuition making him an obvious choice for edits in the realm of Jazz and creative music.

    I'd highly recommend to have Dean involved in your project! We got to work together on the editing of my band's album, and it's been a really fruitful experience.

    Dean has an amazing ear for both the subtleties and the big picture of the music. He has a wide-range of technical tools and creative capabilities and uses them in a musical and tasteful way. His input helped push our project to new places, and working with him has always been easy, as he is very communicative, organized, flexible, open minded and also fun to be around.
    Check his work out and consider having him involved!!
