Joe Irente on SoundBetter

Detailed mixes for dense and layered music. I'ld love to enhance your song and help you materialize your vision. My strenght is in layering multiple rhythm, synths, samples, guitars and percussion.

When mixing, I focus on bringing all sounds together, like they exist in the same space, giving special attention to the stereo image as well as how the mix would be translated to different devices.

I am open to any genre, but I work best with music that has electronic elements, not strictly dance music, but also synthpop, indietronica, electronic rock, all industrial and post-industrial genres. This are the genres I know best and understand all conventions and structures.

I mix mostly in the box, but have access to a variety of instruments and gear from a studio which I run with a associate. I've also a partnership with guitarists and percussionists if needed.

That's totally fine if you're a musician who also partly mix your songs. I believe the processing and FX are part of the composition and I welcome experimentation. Sometimes I also record extra instruments to reinforce the song.

I'm always curious to hear references and learn about the concepts behind the lyrics and themes.
Hope to hear from you soon!

  6. A: Post-Industrial / Psychedelic Electronics

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: cEvin Key from Skinny Puppy/ Download. His approach to sound as a sentient organic structure is very inspiring to me. He has a very colaborative philosophy and a emotional relationship to his gear. These are all traits that I admire and try to bring to my work.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Depends on the project. Some projects ask for analog processing, others should be 100% digital. The concept of the song is above everything and I work for that final result.

  16. A: By far: layering songs. I often find myself in projects that require fitting multiple rhythms and timbres, I love it! I'm all into puzzles and psychedelia: the harder the mix, the better. I'm also good at arranging tracks, approaching the songs from other angle.

  17. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  18. A: cEvin Key, Ken "Hiwatt" Marshall, Michael Beinhorn, Lars Stalfors, Joe Barresi, Trent Reznor/ Atticus Ross, Gary Numan, Luis Vasquez (The Soft Moon), Robert Alfons, the band clipping., Hans Zimmer, Alan Moulder.
