Alex is a perfectionist - he won’t be satisfied until your satisfied, and the mix is perfect and he is willing to go the extra mile to see this through. You will also benefit from his insight and deep understanding of the mechanics of the music industry due to his years of experience. Booking with Alex is something you won’t regret.
I've worked with Alex for over 10 years and what sets him apart from other engineers is his production ear. He isn't just interested in making what you provide sound good but he'll offer suggestions on how you can make songs sound better too. A great mix of technical know-how and musical knowledge. Ultimate professional.
