I'm also offering stem mastering. When you got the mix down already, but you're not sure about the exact balance. This can get you towards the optimal results quicker and cheaper than a full mix service, yet provides much more parameters to work with compared to the usual stereo track mastering. Ask for details!

Interview with Phonogenic Audio
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Well, I do prefer vinyl, thanks for asking. For tools, digital all the way.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: "It'll sound better."
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I really enjoy helping people out and making sure their creations reach the highest possible levels.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Some people still think that mastering is just about making things loud and creating some predefinied EQ curve.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What other songs would you like your tracks to stand next to, proudly?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started producing and DJing music in the early 90s. I've run a label as well. I started offering my services more broadly in 2005. Now I have over 10 years of experience in mastering and mixing for other artists and labels.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'd like to think my style is modern and fresh with firm roots.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Why not all?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make sure you decide what's the most important element / event in the track, and make sure it stands out in the final product.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: House, techno, indie pop, ambient. I've also done my share of opera and chamber music mastering.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My experience definitely. I've been working on music seriously since the 90s and I've gathered a wide knowledge of different genres etc while at it. I know what the client is trying to accomplish and I'm willing to help them get there.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel like most of my job is to act as a curator to make sure the work in question is shown in best possible light. My years and years of experience helps make those stylistic decisions with ease.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First thing is that I ask the client about the perceived status of the project. Then I listen to how it sounds at the moment and make some mental notes how it could be bettered. Then a quick estimate of the work ahead and the budget needed. When all is agreed with the client, I get to work!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: The recent years I've streamlined my setup so that I mostly work digitally these days. I've found the dexterity it brings over analogue is definitely worth it. I also have multiple monitor and room listening setups for making sure the end product translates well on different systems.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone who's really putting in the effort to grow and push the culture forward.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: 75% of my work is mixing and mastering electronic music (either from stereo files or stems). Stem mastering has been gaining ground lately.
