Hi there. My name is Blessing aka Black Moss. I am one half of the hip hop duo Part Time Cooks based in Seoul, South Korea. On top of being a recording artist I mix and master all our music. I am self taught and although I do not have formal sound engineering credentials, my work speaks for itself.
I offer a high quality mix and mastering service which guarantees a final product able to compete on any commercial platform.

After that I clean uo the vocals (noise removal, breathing, synch backing vocals and adlibs) the next step is to clean out the beat with the vocals in mind. I try and make sure each instrument is the best possible quality before I begin the mix. Once this is done I then mix my vocals to the beat and during this process I will adjust the instrument levels to fit the vocals.
