15+ years of experience in Production, Mixing and Mastering straight from the wolrd's Electronic Music capital.
My lust for music has led me to Berlin at the tender age of 20, where I arrived with my first laptop and started buying records and making my first tracks, meanwhile soaking in the local music scene and learning the german language. When i was proficient enough i then started attending the SAE Audio Engineering course, and in 2010 i received my diploma.
Having already had various experiences with live sound starting in my teens, I always knew that the studio was actually the place where I wanted to be.
After school I was extremely lucky to land a gig as assistant at the now defunct “Headroom Studio”, where I was able to cut my teeth even deeper assisting in recording and mixing sessions of all kinds with engineer Marc Elsner and composer Christoph Rinnert. Unfortunately that experience had to end when the studio was hit by a massive “gentrification” rent increase and had to cease operations.
Aside from my professional experience I have constantly been studying to expand my knowledge of good sound and the machines that enable us to make it.
With more than 20 vinyl releases under my belt (with either my Topper or Dead Rail aliases or with my band Triptease) I have accumulated a great deal of experience in what it takes to produce great sounding recordings that will translate well on all mediums and systems.

Interview with MTT Audio Solutions
