    First track of my second album with Alex is now done, and sounds amazing. As always, he is relentless in ensuring the tracks are as good as they can be. Looking forward to the rest of the songs and seeing what we can make together.

    Alex was a pleasure to work with. He's very receptive to feedback throughout the mix process and we worked together to create better and better versions of my track until we both were absolutely proud of the end result. He sticks to timelines/deadlines, and overall is a talented mix engineer I'd recommend to anyone!

    Alex was a great person to work with. Throughout the job his communication was fantastic. He provided regular updates and made sure I was 100 percent satisfied with his service. He was really patient with any revisions I had and worked hard to get the result perfect and ensured we hit the vision for the track. Would recommend to anyone and looking forward to working with him again! 10/10

    I can highly recommend Alex. I had a number of stems, both wet and dry and he managed to create a really strong, cohesive track that sounds great and polished. He listened to my suggestions while offering his own ideas, which were always on the money. I'm definitely working with him again, with pleasure!

    Alex is one of the best Mix Engineers I've ever worked with. Extremely talented and just a really nice guy too. He worked on a lofi/boom bap beat of mine and I genuinely couldn't be happier with how it sounds. Thank you bro!

    Another great experience with Alex! This is the 4th song I've worked with him so far this year and he's been outstanding every time. He's extremely patient and always delivers great results. I had to go on a work trip that put me away from my music for a few days and the delay was no problem for Alex. I'd highly recommend him for anyone looking for excellent quality mixing and mastering!

  10. A: I would love to work with Post Malone because he just seems like a chill dude to hang out and to work with.

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

  26. A: There is another mixing and mastering engineer called Fred who does really good work.

  36. A: Even though mastering and mixing is pretty technical it has a creative component to it.

  37. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  39. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  40. A: I am focusing on mastering single tracks, or tracks within a bigger project, for example an EP or LP. I am also doing mixing services, so there is the possibility to combine both services into one order.

  44. A: I am a big fan of the producer Rick Rubin. I just love his positive energy and the calmness in his approach of making music with different styles.
