  1. Review by Farfletched

    Lenny is amazing. He takes your project to 99% oven ready, then tweaks the final 1% to your taste. A single revision each time nailing the direction. Pleasure to work with and a wonderful DJ and producer to boot! Thanks Lenny. ILL BE BACK! :)

  7. Review by Dallas B.

    Lenny is a legend. Very easy to work with. Clear communication. I usually have to go back and forth about 4 or 5 times until I get the master sounding how I want… Lenny did it in 2. Highly recommend!

  8. Review by NEIL J.

    Excellent communicator, superior product. 10 out of 10. My new go to for big sound system masters.

  9. Review by Todd R.

    We used Lenny to program some electronic drums for a song, and we intend to use him to mix the song when it is ready. We wanted to take a song and bring in elements of dance music. Lenny totally nailed the drums, and we can’t wait to hear what he does with the mix. He clearly has a gift for this.

  10. Review by Marco C.

    Very easy to work with! Lenny also did a revision for me and he hit it out of the park!

    Lenny noticed details I missed - like a click from poor side-chaining on my bassline. It's no wonder he was able to get my mix and master sounding much cleaner and louder than I could on my own. It's wonderful to hear your track get that professional polish that Lenny provides. Thanks dude!

  15. Review by Ryan E.

    Knows how to get things done efficiently and cleanly! Excellent communication with Lenny all around and very accommodating

  18. Review by Danielle W.

    Lenny was a pleasure to work with. He was thorough and very communicative. It was easy to make adjustments and he walked me through the entire process upfront. I loved my finished product and look forward to working with him again soon.

  19. Review by Henry P.

    Another great track with Lenny! He is fantastic to work with. Super pro mixing and mastering skills, fast turnaround, and crystal clear communication.

    On a technical note, Lenny can make your mix clear, loud, rich, and it will bang. If you are looking for some one to mix/master a track in the style of Dirtybird etc. Look no further, he's your guy.

  20. Review by Henry P.

    Lenny is the man. He thoroughly understood what sound I was going for.

    Listen to some of his tracks and you can hear how great of a producer he is and the results that he gets. This combined with his clear communication makes it a breeze to work with him. Highly recommended!

  2. A: I have been really proud to have been able to do an official remix for Justin Martin, which got signed to Dirtybird records.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both, but primarily digital for dance music because of the laser precision that it provides to create a tight mix and master. A hybrid analog/digital setup for mastering provides for great results.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I'll put my all into making your song sound the best it can. I'll communicate effectively and in a timely manner. I'll deliver on time.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: Q. Will I see a more drastic result from mixing rather than just mastering? A. Yes, certain problems will be better fixed in the mix and yield a better result. Q. What file type do I send for Mastering? A. 44,100hz 24 bit Stereo .wav with -6db of headroom. No plugins on master when exporting, no dither applied. Label as "Artist Name - Song Name - Premaster" Q. What do I send for Mixing? A. Export 44,100hz 24 bit Stereo .wav for each individual track in the project. Make sure your levels are not clipping any plugins or tracks and all of your master tracks plugins are turned off when exporting.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: Use a spectrum analyzer plugin like Voxengo SPAN on your master (free) to be able to view the frequency balance of your mix along with listening. Bring your favorite reference tracks into your DAW and put SPAN on them to see what their balance looks like also and compare to your own. It will then give you an idea of what your mix balance should be visually and a good approximation of the overall tone and balance you are going for.
