Joe McGuigan on SoundBetter

I have been taught by industry professionals such as Lewis Capaldi/CamelPhat's Engineer. I have also had success through my personal tracks on Spotify reaching 1 million streams worldwide.

I am currently taking a degree in Audio Engineering at SAE Institute, but have 5 years experience mastering tracks. I offer a fast but slick final product matching the vision you desire as accurately as possible. My main genre I focus on is electronic dance, however I have mixed and mastered many different genres such as Rock, Pop and Hip Hop.
