I have my own artist project JOWST where I've received a double platinum for my single "Grab The Moment". Mixed and mastered by myself. I do production, co-writes, master and mix tracks for others. Free preview on a master for all new customers.
I am a 29-year-old producer and sound engineer, based in Oslo/Norway.
I started my own studio in 2011 and has ever since then been working with most of the ways you could work with music. Since 2016 I've been focusing more on commercial music like pop, EDM, and genres like Future Bass.
The things I normally do, in general, is:
I believe in being efficient, and not was time or money on analog gear. They do sound nice, but I am able to make the digital plugins sound just as nice, within a smaller amount of time. I am mainly here to offer my mixing and masterings services.
The first time you order a master, you will get a free preview first. You don't pay if not satisfied.
