    I've had the pleasure of working with Joël on my two albums. He is very professional, quick, precise, patient, and has great ears! No wonder he produces great music!
    He's my first call for Engineering, Mixing, and Production!

    I love his sound ! There's always a great feeling when I master Joel's tracks. Got space, dynamics, tight bass and clear vocals. Everything's in its right place. Such a good job, I recommend !

    Joël is one of the top mix engineer in France. He is artistically and technically highly skilled, hard worker, attentive and knows how to be in tune with client. As a demanding music producer I need to fully trust people I'm working with and Joël is 200% reliable.
    He mixes sharp, smart, accurate, hot, with unlimited patience and dedication.
