My name is Mike Xavier, and I'm here to help you finish your music and get it out to the world. I'm a successful independent artist myself, and I mix/master my music on my own. I've had my songs played on radio and TV and will provide you with a quality mix that you'll be satisfied with.
I'm a successful independent artist currently living in Las Vegas, by way of Los Angeles. I have mixed and mastered my music for years now. My goal is to provide you with a final mix that you are satisfied with and eager to share. My mixing service will also include a mastered version of the song.
As an artist myself, I take my music very seriously, and doing so has helped me earn my way on to Radio, TV, and performances at Music Festivals. Please check out the samples of my mixed songs and let me know if you have any questions.

Mike is a fantastic client! It was pleasure working on his project. I look forward to working with him in the future.
Mike is always cool to work with. He knows what he’s doing, especially with hip hop which is what I do. Each time I’ve used him he’s came back with clean mixes.
I recently worked with Mike on a track where he produced/mixed/mastered everything and it was an awesome experience. He's got a stellar vision for his tracks and will always get the best possible results!
I've worked with Mike a few times to mix my/master my songs, and he always delivers a professional sound that I'm happy with. I highly recommend him. He's my go-to guy for my upcoming EP.
Interview with Mike Xavier
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Remote Mixing and Mastering
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Noah '40' Shebib, Mike Dean, Koz, J. Cole.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mix in the box and have all of the latest and most highly recommended plugins from Waves, Sound Toys, iZotope, and Fab Filter.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to approach a new mix by first listening to the record a few times and pinpointing any standout points that I want to tackle first. I do a lot of mix referencing, so if possible, I like to get a song or two from the client of a mix that they want for me to aim for.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: When I work on a record, I bring a strong desire to make it the best possible mix it can be. I'm reletless when it comes to making sure there is nothing left to be adjusted when I provide the final mix. I always treat work I do for my clients as if it were my own song I'm going to release into the world.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ear for a great mix.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have something change in your song every eight bars even if it's subtle.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd work with J. Cole because I believe we'd create something incredible that would never get old for our fans.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like clean mixes where everything is as good as it can be. So, for example, if there is a certain vocal mix where I can remove the artist's breath and it sounds cleaner, I'll take the extra time to do that.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been mixing and mastering music for over ten years now. I
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, USB Interface, Monotirs, Vocal Mic, and Headphones.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Hire someone familiar with the kind of music you're looking to have worked on.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The main thing I need is a quality vocal recording, which is easy to come by nowadays with the low cost of home studio gear. I also ask if they have reference tracks or songs that they like the mix of.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that you can take a low-quality vocal recording and make it sound as good vocals coming out of a million-dollar studio. It all starts with getting a good quality vocal recording to work with.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The excitement my clients get when they hear a finished mix that they're excited to release.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll try your mix as if it were my own that I'm going to release to my own fans. I promise to make sure you're completely satisfied with the mix, I know that's how I'd want it to be if I were paying.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital provides a clean signal and is more affordable. It'll give you excellent results when dealing with someone who knows how to work it and apply the right plugins that can also reproduce the analog sound.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently working on a new album of my own amongst a few other projects for clients.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm most proud of my most recent album. I recorded, mixed, and mastered it on my own and have heard nothing but great things about the sound quality of this particular body of work. It's titled 'Still Dreaming' by Mike Xavier, be sure to check it out!
