Deadhorse F.A.S. on SoundBetter

My name is David "Smout" Martin and I specialise in mixing punk and alternative rock. I've recently mixed the debut album and follow up EP for Randale Record's Takers & Users. I'd like to help you bring out the best in your songs with a professional and "in your face" mix.

I have a keen ear for what's good or bad, and am a stickler for detail. I'll make sure I get every last bit of goodness out of a recording session, and translate that into a great mix.
Use me for your mastering and I will guarantee you consistency across your album, in terms of tone, dynamics and volume. Don't become a victim of the loudness wars. I'll make your songs loud, but never so loud that they lose dynamics or punch.
I have played in bands, writing, & recording for over 30 years. I've been professionally mixing for the last 10 years, and mastering for the last four.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
