Clean, crisp and energetic mixes! Im also able to offer mastering services as well! Id love to work on your project! My specialty is bringing out the feeling and energy of a track!
My name is T.T. , which is short for my actual name Taylor Thompson. I started my mixing/mastering career creating tracks for competitive dance teams and currently own the largest dance team music production company in the United States! When creating these tracks we download legal cover versions, of popular songs, from certain sites that in turn provide us with the stems. I then arrange, mix and master these tracks for clients in the United States and around the world!
Genres that I love to work in are Hip Hop, Pop, Trap, EDM and R&B. Im not limited to these genres and love to experience and listen to all different genres of music!
If you are just wanting mixing then I able to give you a clean mix that will be prepped and ready to master! If you are wanting mastering as well I can provide masters for all streaming platforms as well as CD. Working with me you will get several different masters so you can choose how you want to distribute your project.
I am great with communication and will do everything in my power to ensure that your project sounds the best it can sound! I work remotely but I stay in constant communication! I look forward to working on your project!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
