    Nico is a joy to work with. Took my original production vision and stayed true. Great instincts at prioritizing and simplifying when it comes to mixing in order to get a track sounding big yet retain clarity. Would happily recommend him / work again.

    Nico is extremely helpful, friendly and professional. He encouraged me to make as many edits/requests as needed to reach the alternative rock sound I was looking for, and he is extremely proficient in mixing and mastering in Pro Tools. I had a blast working with him, and will definitely collaborate with him again in the future.
