Mastering Electronic Music for Spotify
Hi I'm Jonathan!
I started producing electronic music when I was 16 and graduated in Sound and Music Production, at the age of 21. I have been mixing and mastering since then.
For your song to really shine on platforms like Spotify, it is really important that you hit the right spot between loud and dynamic. I will get you there!

A: Speakers, laptop, my desk, Internet antenna and a whole power plant to power all this forever :D
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Started out as a music producer, got interested in the technical side of things and ended up in mastering. I've been doing this since about 2016.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Pretty chaotic at the start and then more specific as I get closer to the final product. I master by the rule of "no part is the best part" and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Essentially, if your song sounds amazing, I will tell you and change very little. If it needs some work though, I will put it in.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use Adam Audios A8X Monitors hooked up to a MOTU Interface. I fully work "in the box" which is why I have a custom build PC and a big 2k Screen. I use a lot of the FabFilter stuff!

A: I love the sound of Sleepnet, Virtual Riot, SOPHIE, Space Laces, Lorn, Rezz, ...
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: On here only mastering so far. Maybe Stem Mixing at a later stage...
