Ashley Krajewski on SoundBetter

A mixer of musical frequencies & feelings.

I spent the first 10 years of my career working at a studio privately run by dance/rock pioneers Apollo 440 in London. Now working freelance, I draw on all the knowledge and experience I gained working with countless singers/bands/artists/producers (both established and new) on all sorts of different projects.

Mixing is not simply a technical procedure, it's a creative process. You can get a song sounding good a million different ways using all kinds of techniques but does it make the listener feel the way it's supposed to?

I am a perfectionist. Even when I know "perfect" isn't something that's actually possible most of the time, that doesn't stop me striving to achieve that for myself and more importantly the artist I'm mixing music for. If that means working on a track for a while, deciding it's not working and starting again with a new approach..then I'm not afraid to do that.

I'm yet to win a Grammy but if that's important then you're probably in music for the wrong reasons..
I've worked with big artists on hit songs as well as other artists on really great music that sadly haven't been hits..

If you've got this far after managing to find me in the LONG list of mix engineers, then you may as well use the contact button to get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing about you, your project and hearing your music of course!

    So happy! Ashley is amazing. Listening back to my original mix v. his mix, and they're worlds apart! So patient, and with incredible attention to detail, I really appreciate his work and would recommend him very strongly.

    Ash has been my go to guy for all my Mixing needs. Despite never having met he understands exactly what the song needs sonically, often taking a more co production side rather than just straight sonics. He is the man for any mix work I have and I can’t recommend him highly enough!

    Ashley mixed our EP 'The Witnessing'. It was a complex work that I'd spent over a year on, but Ash got stuck in straight away and excelled from rough mix to final, far exceeding our expectations. His technical aptitude and creativity compliment each other throughout, and I'll keep working with him because he really has got 'the Ear'.

    Ashley mixed a track for me. He went beyond the call of duty and produced excellent results on time, on budget and on brief. I was hesitant to pay for someone else to mix my track at first, but with some clever editing techniques and masterful production finishes he achieved some great results. He is defo recommended. Got for it.

Interview with Ashley Krajewski

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Predominantly mixing these days but that can also end up including recording, engineering and editing/comping.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: Right now I'm working in the box, mostly on Pro Tools with high quality plugins and audio converters with speakers that I know well.

  5. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  6. A: Monitor at low volume. Anything can sound exciting pumped up loud..does it still sound that way quieter? You also tend to lose focus and your ears won't last as long!

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: Suncream, a water filter, a solar powered cooker, satellite phone and a fishing rod. Wait..was that a trick question?

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: That mixing is a technical rather than a creative process.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: I think it's clear both have their positives. There are now some extremely complex plugin emulations to get that analog magic that can be missing from digital recordings. The benefit of instant recall and levels of control in the digital world can certainly be seen as a positive.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: Some of my mixing influences are Alan Moulder, Michael Brauer, and Tchad Blake.
