    Eddy took control of the mix / master for my track ‘Luminance’ and did a brilliant job, he’s an absolute pro and I couldn’t be happier with how my track has turned out. Eddy is very down to earth and extremely easy to work with - highly recommend if you want to get the best out of your track and I look forward to using his services soon again!

    This guy never fails to deliver! I've got about 7 tracks signed now off the back of his incredible skills and I'm sure this one will be no different. I imagine his children will be named Pan and Decibel he's that in tune with his mixes.

    Wow, just wow. When my duo partner and I left our work with Eddy, we did not expect the service we received. Constant updates and thorough feedback, incredibly sound mixing/mastering, and just an overall really easy and friendly person to work with. Could not recommend this guy more.

    On top of this, we actually had this first track signed to a record label after Eddy's Help. Thank you once again for your assistance.

    Eddy is the most genuine and responsive person I've seen on this platform. He took the time to understand my situation and needs for the track thoroughly and offered great tailored advice on how I should prepare everything so we can get the best results. True professional, had nothing short of a great experience with him.
