Hi, I’m Shamar, a Chicago based record producer, mixer, and engineer. I have years of experience creating inspiring records with artists from around the world. My musical background is my biggest asset in the studio, I’m not just a button pusher, I help bridge the gap between an artist’s song/vision and a professional sounding final production.
My approach when working as an engineer on a project is to make the raw recorded tracks sound as good as possible and as early as possible. When working as both the producer and engineer on a project, I'm able to begin establishing the shape of a song from the beginning.
I specialize in Producing Instrumental Tracks for All Genre's of Music, Wether you need production for a Rap Track, Trap, Blues, Jazz, or anything else, I will deliver the best Product.
