I've worked for years now on various projects, most recently "User Busy" which you can find on Spotify, fully mixed/mastered and engineered by myself. I have a huge passion for mixing, mastering and general songwriting and collaboration, also have lots of experience editing and mastering podcasts. Thanks
I am operating out of a top end home studio in Cardiff, with a range of equipment and a fully acoustically treated room and both JBL and Adam A7X monitors, along with much more.
Mixing and mastering is something that comes very naturally to me, though my setup is more ideal for mastering, and with a few sets of high end speakers I can reference on many platforms easily. For mix/mastering examples look at my ongoing work for User Busy on Spotify as my most up-to-date skillset example.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
