    Adrian was great to work with! I especially appreciated how open he was to discussing specific elements of the music production & how to bring out the best in the song. We had several conversations to talk through our vision for the music, which I really enjoyed.

    My experience with Adrian was very positive. He helped me to shape the sound of one of my songs and also did the mixing. Because he is creative he did not only improve the sound but also added some tasty effects that made the composition better. He is a very good communicator and also had some usefull tips on how to promote music. Highly recommended!

    This is my 4th song with Adrian and he just blows my mind every time with his creativity, attention to detail and I love how he thinks musically. I've thrown different styles of music at him (rock, pop, this time EDM) and he hits them out of the park every time. I look forward to working on many more songs in the future with him and his fabulous team!
