    He is super quick and efficient. His mixing/ production is impeccable. Most importantly he responds extremely quickly to messages and when I asked for last minute changes. Def coming back.

    Couldn't thank Maui enough for his professionalism and patience with us throughout the process. He willingly worked with us through a few versions of the mix before the final and he never gave any indication he was irked by our requests.

  • Listing_thumb_img_0715_-_copy_kiss_1_w_efx_tight3 months agoby

    Maui Black is a talented mixer with a very creative ear and extreme patience! When I sent him the tracks, he picked up on the vibe and inserted some drops and mutes that are just what I was looking for. This was my first ever remote mix, took me a minute to get the hang of it. Maui hung with me, and months later we ended up with a slamming mix. THANKS MAUI!!
