Hey, If you want to get the best out of your mix/master, you've come to the right place. I will not let you down and I always aim for the highest quality! My biggest strength is vocal production, I've been working side by side with a producer who was part of the Max Martin team and produced vocals for Celine Dion, Westlife and more.
A brief bio:
I'm 31 years old living in Stockholm Sweden, I've always loved sound design and that's my biggest interest. I've been in the business for 10 years, I have since then built myself 22 Studios and I now have this big community of famous artists such as Eric Turner and Garmiani housing under my roof. The studio I'm sitting in is one of the best studios in Sweden and I'm really proud of how it sounds. I'm able to hear things in here I never thought I could and that's really what differentiate me from the others. Let me put my magic on your Songs! I will not just put a random "vocal chain" on the stuff and spit out mixes to people like it was an assembly line, I will take the time every track needs to make it as perfect as I can!
Please contact me for pricing as it varies dependent upon each individual project. I am always happy to work with your budget, big or small!
Business aside, I absolutely love music and want to help you create something that you'll love! If you have any questions about my background, my process or how I can contribute to your project, please don't hesitate to ask!

David is absolutely amazing at what he does! His mixes and mastering are TOP notch and I absolutely love how he made the few tracks we've worked on together sound, going to be working with him more in the future!! His production is also amazing and he really brings the tracks to life!!! Would recommend to everyone!!
David is an excellent producer & master engineer.
He was mixing & mastering a few of our songs incl. full vocal mixdowns and he delivered a fantastic job each and everytime! Would highly recommend if you are looking for that high quality sound in your productions.
We are looking forward to sending him new stuff very soon and cant' wait to hear the final results :)
