You pay what you think my work is worth, that's the deal! As mixing engineer I am always on the quest for making a client's sound captivating. Hip Hop focused but also experienced in alternative/indie rock.
My musical socialization was heavily influenced by 90s and early 2000s hip hop: Tupac, Dipset, Cormega, Nas, Masta Ace. As well as some other inspiring artists like RHCP, The Smiths, BO, Lana del Rey, Daughter and all the songs, that came to leave footprints in one's life. Felt asleep with headphones on my ears nearly half my youth.
I have been working for many years on hip hop (mixing and producing), also some singer-songwriter projects.
Now I want to build my portfolio not only with local clients, but here on Soundbetter.
In order for you to have no risk with your investment, you will only pay what you think my work is worth to you, that's the deal.
Reach out and we can discuss the details and find a way to collaborate.
Looking forward to work with you!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
