I am Los Angeles based mix and mastering engineer (by way of Boston). I've worked with subsidiary labels of Sony and Columbia and Def Jam. As well is indie labels such as BBE, Ubiquity, Soul Clap and many more. My experience ranges all the way from disco and funk vinyl reissues to pop, hip hop and almost anything in-between.
Joseph Caserta (known as Caserta) is a Mix Engineer, Producer and DJ from Boston, Massachusetts. As the son of a drummer, Caserta was exposed to a wide range of music from an early age. Funk and Soul classics by the likes of The Average White Band, Tower of Power and Luther Vandross were just a few of the staples heard in the Caserta household.
In his junior year of high school, Caserta would meet his soon to be best friend and aspiring rapper Ashmead “Ash” Arjune. It was Ash that introduced him to his first production and mixing software, Sonic Foundry’s Acid Pro, Soon experimentation became an obsession. He began crafting and mixing self-described “horrendous beats” out of stock loops that came with the program. With the production flame being lit, he went from making Hip Hop mixtapes to high school cheerleading music. He would use any excuse to get behind the computer to edit and mix.
Things haven’t changed much since then. Caserta has established his own studio where he has mixed records for labels such as Def Jam, Columbia, BBE and countless more. Over a short period of time, Caserta has had the unique opportunity to apply modern-day techniques to Disco, Funk and R&B sessions from the 70’s and 80’s – while at the same time, infusing House, Pop, Latin and EDM projects of today with a touch of nostalgia.

Reviews of Caserta
Caserta is super flexible, quick, and has an amazing ear. It always sounds like he is working with entire extra dimensions when I compare his mixes to my roughs. I used to think I was a decent mixer until I had him mix one of my tracks... I haven't mixed anything of my own since. Top notch!
When I'm in a jam, and can't get the sound I'm looking for I know Caserta is willing to get me past the finish line! Great ears, and very friendly to work with.
Great ear! Picks up on the sound and vibe we were looking for and was fast with mixes and any feedback.
Unlike the past where artists and producers would hire somebody to mix their project, these days many producers also take on the task of mixing down their own music which is great if you have an understanding of what it takes but, it's an art within itself and Caserta has a true talent for the science of sound.
