To say Aydin is simply a phenomenal talent would be a gross understatement. Every time we collaborate on a record, he goes above and beyond to provide innovative production and a perfect mix.
I have been working with Aydin for several years now and he is always my first choice, he covers all aspects of the creative process making it a one stop shop for writing/production and engineering . He has the perfect studio set up to work in and is a real perfectionist. If you want top class industry results he is the guy.
Aydin is a talented, unique songwriter & producer. I am a music supervisor and often call him for specific music needs and he can turn around quickly and of high quality AND...he is easy to work with. I really appreciate having him on my team!
Aydin is a beast! I can always count on having a great time during a session, but also producing a killer song/track at the end of it! A pleasure to work with and a master at his craft. I look forward to creating more hits with him!

I've had the opportunity to work with Aydin a number of times and he is a great engineer/producer/musician.. I highly recommend him..
A solid hard working creative guy is Aydin, in all aspects of production (songwriting, producing, engineering and remixing). Great guy to work with, listens to you and helps your ideas come true and always willing to give his input for the better of the project. He also creates a great working environment, very crucial to the creativity flow!
Aydin is not only a friend, but a talented Musician, Songwriter, Producer & Engineer. He has done numerous work with me and my group All-4-One. He's remixed, mixed, and written for us and it's always turned out amazing. I highly recommend Aydin for all of your musical needs.
