Expect nothing less than a clean, crisp sounding mix - and a quick turnover time.
I have been engineering since 2016 when I started an independent record label by the name of Vaarcity.
My preferred genres to mix are Hip Hop, Trap, Drill and R&B. These are genres I listen to personally and find it easy to emulate the sound of what's current. I was always strive for a final mix that sounds good enough to be played on radio - regardless of what equipment was used to record the track.
I also have a degree in Music Business, so feel free to hit me up with any industry questions you might have!

Always great work, professional high-quality sound!
Amazing! Highly recommend! Tash was very communicative, worked efficiently, and provided high-quality sound! On point! Thank you, will be coming back!
Wow! As an engineer myself (and a stubborn one sometimes) it’s not everyday I come across another mix engineer I can comfortably work with! Tash knows exactly what he’s doing and his experiences in other areas of music add to his talents. I have worked with tash as a engineer and as an artist and I can say the vibes, quality and level of creativity are outstanding!
Interview with TashLDN
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take the time to understand how the Compressor works, and listen carefully to what it does to the vocal. It is very easy to over compress a vocal track.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually Rap, Hip-Hop, Drill and Trap. But I also have experience in Afrobeats, contemporary R&B and Pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my attention to detail, and I like to apply it whether I'm recording an artist, or mixing & mastering.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a clean and clear sound, so even the "grittiest" of tracks can have a professional sound - without losing that grit.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When mixing a clients work, I always start by cleaning the vocal. This includes using EQ to remove unwanted frequencies. I will also Time Flex any backing vocals or stabs so they sit perfectly on top of the main vocal track. I may also soften harsh breath sounds. Once I've achieved a cleaned vocal I will then Compress and EQ so it sits well within the instrumental. The final step will be to add FX like Delay and Reverb. During this step I'll also include vocal glitches and beat stops where necessary.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I make use of the professional equipment available at Pirate Studio which include Yamaha HS8's and the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8. For recording session I bring with me my AKG C414 for a cleaner crisper sound.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm often drawn to record producers like Timbaland, Darkchild and The-Dream. The reason is because they are more than just one thing, they produce, they song-write, but they're still artists and performers.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do is Mixing & Mastering. It's a process I enjoy, it allows me to exercise my attention to detail.
