Adam is always diligent and a pleasure to work with! Great turnaround speed on projects also!
Adam is one of the best mixing engineer on here. Always to pleasure listening to his mixes.
This is the second track I worked with Adam on, this time for mastering. Adam is very professional, easy to work with, and provides honest feedback. Having his ears on my projects has been a tremendous help. I'd definitely work with him again.
Adam took a lot of stems and helped make better "sense" out of them and help create a first class mixed song. He was a great pleasure to work with and he was fast and intuitive...and was able to take my explanation of the song and bring that into fruition. Adam delivered exactly what I was expecting from a first class sound engineer and mixer. Highly recommend!!
Professional, friendly, and knowledgeable of his craft. Adam is a real pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job. I'm looking forward to doing more songs with him.
Adam will go above and beyond for you. Technical aspects of mixing that never crossed my mind were amplified by him taking the lead on the whole process. I would highly recommend him to any musician looking to lift their song/album to the next level.
Always courteous and extremely efficient. Great to work with!
Adam Kagan is a mixing BEAST! His mix of I see red was all I needed to hear to know that my song was in great hands. I'm really happy with the job he did on my song High School, and I feel very grateful to have connected with him through this website. I highly recommend him for all your mixing need. Thank you for a great mix and Im looking forward to working with you again in the near future!
I had a great experience with Adam and my mix is now professional. He's timely, responsive to feedback and very motivated to give you the sound you want. Not to mention a nice guy : )
10/10 would recommend Adam's services.
The best engineer I have ever worked with!

Interview with Adam Kagan
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mix songs for record companies and independent artists for Top40, Rhythmic, Jazz and Soundtrack. Pop, EDM, R&B, Jazz and classical. I master songs and albums for pop, R&B, jazz, classical and scores.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm influenced by the best music of the last few decades. I'm inspired by artists and producers who are into their craft and work hard.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mainly in-the-box, but I have a few choice pieces of outboard gear that I can't get away from.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to discuss the project with the producer and artist and figure out the best process, whether I work on a song and then make necessary revisions or sit with the artist or producer while I work. I typically work quickly, but take as long as it takes to get the job done.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think I bring the best out in the music that is already there. I add my own flavor, but I try not to change the essence of what the artist and producer intended. My job should be transparent, but also improve the music to a point where the whole exceeds the sum of the parts.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is understanding the message of the music and allowing that to shine through.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Top40, Pop, R&B, Urban, EDM, Jazz, Rock and scoring.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Work until you are satisfied - don't settle for good enough.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing music since I was a child and producing, mixing and mastering professional music for about 20 years now.
