Sorry, no grammy-nomination yet, but I'm pretty sure we can get your song there.
my name is Axel, I studied Jazz-guitar at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart and then filmscoring and sounddesign at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg.
I have my own studio since 15 years, in wich I worked on hundreds of projects, including compositions and mixing for TV, cinema and advertising.
I'd love to work with Indie-Bands or electronic acts. I have a lot of vintage gear, but my main goal, is to get a punchy sound, that's modern not old-fashioned.
I don't have any ratings here yet, so I'm wiling to mix the first 5 songs for 100$ each.
I can do some guitar recording as well, if you wish. I have vintage Fender/Marshall amps and a great selection of electric and acoustic guitars plus some nice vintage Neumann mics.
Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

Interview with Elephant Mixing
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Mac, Neve 1073, Neumann M49, La2a, TAD Speaker. Oh wait... That's exactly the gear I'm using :-)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm doing this 15 years now as a professional writer/mixer. I started playing guitar when I was 7 years old, so it's been a while...
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Chandler TG-1 parallel on drums always sounds absolutely stunning.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: People tell me, that I'm a good listener. I see myself as a music fan.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup combines both digital and analog. My mixes are often in the box with a combination of some analog compressors and some tube eqs. I think digital has a lot of advantages regarding the precision, but analog can often get that magic thing happen without thinking too much.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Oh... there are a few... Nigel Godrich, Andy Wallace, Rick Rubin.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I compose and mix for my clients. Mostly the music is attached to a film, but I worked on various band projects in the past.
