Joe Menzies

Mix Engineer

Joe Menzies on SoundBetter

I am a London based songwriter, producer and mix engineer. I graduated from Leeds College of Music with a 1st class degree and have 3 years experience working in professional studios. I have worked on a variety of different projects for independent artists around the UK. I am also a professional guitarist and bass player.

My aim is to help you get the best possible sound out of your music. I always like to work closely with my clients as I feel it is important that the artist/ songwriter is very involved in the way their music is mixed, in order to bring their vision to life.

I have been working recently at Ten87 Studios based in London. I spend my time working as a mix and mastering engineer and have mixed many artists, bands and large scale projects.

I do not shy away from any music. Rock, pop, classical, Drum N Bass. You send it and I’ll make it sound great!

My setup is simple. I do not have access to a big studio, however that hasn't stopped me in the past from making awesome mixes. I work in the box mostly and use many high end plugins, however I do have access to hardware when needed.

Interview with Joe Menzies

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: I like to sit down with my clients and discuss the initial idea of the project before getting into the mix. I like to know the exact styles and influences of the work. I find it important to work closely with my clients throughout the production in order to provide the best possible work for them.

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  5. Q: Can you share one music production tip?
