Upcoming engineer with low prices and high quality. Learned and worked under professionals. I get better with every mix!
I have been an engineer for roughly 2 years, with most of my knowledge being self-taught and the rest learned while working my way up from intern to engineer at House Studio DC ( HSDC Clients: Wale, Shy Glizzy, Shaed, Joe Maye). My main focus is mixing but I can also provide a number of other services such as vocal comping and editing.

Interview with 57 Mixes
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Odd Mojo's 94 EP, this is my first project. I was the recording, mixing, and mastering engineer. It was a 5 month process which involved a lot of recording, mixing, and long nights.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog just has that sound that you cant replicate, and sometimes you need that precision control you can get with digital plugins.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to use my skills and ear to give the client a finished product they love.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What sound are they looking for? Are there any songs they want their song to sound like? Do they have any favorite parts or ideas they want me to do?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started off recording rap music with my friends after they bought some studio equipment, the first day we were recording from the back of the mic.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start of with organizing the songs by instruments if it's tracked out, or splitting a 2-track into low, mid, and high with EQ. then I listen to the song a couple times to see how I want it to mix or listen to any reference material the client has provided/suggested. Then I begin comping/editing all the tracks, cleaning up click, setting the levels and after the levels are set that's when I begin mixing the instrumental then the vocals.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Right now, my home setup is my laptop with 16GB of RAM and plenty of space, the 2nd gen Scarlett 2i2, and 2 Presonus Eris E5 monitors. I also use the House Studio DC facilities if they're available.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Mixed by Ali, Dave Pensado, Manny Marroquin, Alex Tumay, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Jake Vicious, Fabian Marasciullo, and probably some others I can't think of.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of my work goes back and forth between recording and mixing.
