Every voice is amazing.
Hi! my name is Tom and I love music that has meaning. I come from Hip-Hop and Rap music since a very young age. When I started making my own songs in the early 2018 i realised that mixing play a huge part. Artists in the rap game today rely alot on the mixing. The struggle to get those vocals recorded in your basement not sound muddy you know? Or getting that auto-tune to stop wobbling like crazy. You don't need to worry, I got you!
