Hello, I am a independent Producer/Engineer and Drummer from Sarajevo, Bosnia&Herzegovina.
20 years have passed since a friend who was supposed to do the project I was engaged on as a musician dumped his Atari1024ST and keyboard workstation at my place and said: "there you go, enjoy programming". Thats when it started and haven't stop since.

If you think that I can contribute to your music to make it any better gimme a call !
I own a very small but quite nice home studio with a small mixing room and a even smaller recording voice booth/cabin in centre downtown Sarajevo.
Nice ProAc monitoring, quality analogue outboard for summing and colouring and Pro tools 12.5.1 HD Native rig based around Mac Pro and loads of plugins.
I mix and master records, forensically investigate badly recorded materials to save and use on record what is normally considered impossible to save. Less love for editing and vocal pitch correction but I'm fast and reliable when doing it.
Love searching for new sounds.
Not afraid of huge 100+tracks sessions. Worked on mixing music for film, pre-5.1 stem preps, and supervised 5.1 final mixes as well.

Interview with Djani Pervan

What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Ofter the price is one of main questions. Answer: "It depends..."
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
Every album for Rundek Cargo Orkestar, Letu Stuke, Trovachi was the complete challenge of producing, tracking and mixing.
What are you working on at the moment?
Recording and mixing a big band 12 songs album of pop rearranged covers.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Still didn't check if there is anyone I know on here.
Analog or digital and why?
Both, each for its strengths of course.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Dedication to the work and common goal.
What do you like most about your job?
The feeling of joy when you manage to get it to sound right. Whatever it is, troublesome single track or entire song.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
How detailed this job really is and how much of the brain power it demands.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What is ambition behind this or that record? Where it is imagined to be played, like radio station, clubs, tv etc.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Always better to use reference tracks to explain the sound than try to describe it by words.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Neumann TLM 103, JLM 1290 preamp, Apogee Duet, Shure SRH840 headphones and MacBook Pro. Hoping there's electricity there of course.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
Over 23 years now.
How would you describe your style?
Grew up on vinyl and tape records and since I have my own Pro Tools rig i always strived to be able to create those huge sounding mixes. It took so many years of perfecting to get such a big sound out of a small home studio. So it is sorta hybrid palette of sounds where one is constantly trying to expand its reach for different new and old colours.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
So many... Radiohead - for that voyage with the sound they always seems to take, to name one.
Can you share one music production tip?
Experiment always and work to full potential no matter if you're payed for it or not.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Indie pop, Indie Rock, Rock
What's your strongest skill?
Devotion to quality of the record, by all means. Its a sum of all my skills as a musician and engineer.
What do you bring to a song?
Sensibility and vision mostly, emphasising the strong and interesting points in the song even if they are sometimes of a subtle character.
What's your typical work process?
Open the tracks get them into pro tools session, set the tempo if its fixed, name the tracks properly and organise the session. Then listen how it sounds while moving faders to desirable locations and then print that first rough mix if the artist haven't provided rough already. Once i get the idea of the potential of the song and where its heading I won't stop till its there and everyone is truly happy about it.
