    Doug is a person who listens and get the job done. Changes what needs to be done and add where it is needed. He lets you know what you need to do for your song to be great. Thanks:)

    Doug is an extremely talented engineer and producer. He has a really strong pop music sensibility and it was a a breeze working with him. He really pays attention to detail, turnover and revision rate was fast. Looking forward to wrapping my project with him.

    Very satisfied with Doug's work. He was friendly and got my song done fast and really brought my song to life. He puts his own creative touch on things that I didn't even ask specifically for, as if he read my mind. Couldn't have asked for better service.

    Doug aka UNIKRON is a rare talent. His attention to detail, inventiveness and creativity are inspiring and the results are stellar. We've worked together on several projects now and his mixes and production ideas always sound mind blowingly cool. I can't recommend him highly enough. To put it bluntly, Doug is superb at what he does. Su-perb.

  • Doug is a killer producer :)
