My ears don't lie. Rap/trap and rock/metal mix engineer.
Rap/trap and rock/metal mix engineer. Also, simple jazz live sessions. Guitar player, also violin player - master degree. Looking for new people to mix/master their songs - outside of my country.
Professional, acoustically adapted room, good quality equipment, many years of experience in various genres, creativity, being a musical geek.
I am opposed to ready-made solutions or presets. I want to get the best out of each recording. My role is to transfer the sound from your head to the final track.
Mix is not only clearing tracks and adding cool reverb, but also comping, arrangement changes, and making the dynamics of the mix correspond to the emotions in the song.
A good mix is like a movie, it builds tension, it emphasizes the elements on which the listener should focus, it evokes emotions, but in a very subtle way, so the person listening to the song feels it more than actually hears.
Because the mix is an emphasis on artist and music.

My music is very personal to me. There are a very small group of people I trust enough to hand the keys over to them. I am very pleased with how the track came out. This is the real deal. Nothing but quality & promptness and I feel I was delivered more than what I paid. Well worth the money! I would highly recommend!
Brought my songs to a whole new level. After few messanges, he was able to achieve the sound and energy that my track needed. He delivered a high quality service in no time and I was completely satisfied with the final result.
What can I say, it's f... great
I commissioned a mix and I must admit it turned out very well. Organized system of work, attention to detail. It's a pleasure to hear your song done right.
Quick execution of the work (and quick reply to messages), patient, makes accurate comments about the piece, you feel passion and professionalism.
