Hi, I'm Mikhail Kusch. I am a full time mixing engineer. I create music for various artists, co produce for others and mix records for many more! I work on a variety of styles/genres - ranging from gentle ballads to spine chilling trap. Have a look at my reviews below to see what artists think of working with me!
How it works:
1) First listen to the tracks in my portfolio to get an idea of what I can do :)
2) Message me to get your project started - I enjoy discussing the project before hand (preferably hearing a rough mix) as it helps me get a better understanding of what your needs are.
3) Once the project is funded and the files are uploaded, it's over to me. I do everything I feel the record needs to correctly convey your original vibe, emotion and intention behind the song. I'm here to do the finishing touches, pick up on odd bits and create the best sounding version of your song.
4) I reference across a few different monitoring systems to check how your mix translates across the board.
5) The mix is done and I send it back to you (usually within about 3 days of starting the project)
Pricing Structure (per song):
- 2 < 40 stems = $200
- 41 < 100 stems = $250
- 101 < = $300
*Mix revisions until you are satisfied!

Mikhail is a very talented and professional producer! Definitely recommend him to all and want to collab with him again! I am more than happy with the song
Mikhail really made my mix sounds much better than what I had. He was super friendly and quick with my tight turnaround time. Would definitely work with him in the future and recommend him.

Mikhail is top when it domestic to mixing! We can not recommend him enough! He gets clarity without losing vibe. Great work!
Once again I'm very satisfied with Mikhail's delivery.
Mikhail Kuschke has incredibly demonstrated awesome professionalism, speed and most importantly, quality. I had my first so called "Professional" being mixed by him and due to a lot of issue such as my recording wasn't good or strong enough, he was patient with me and told me to try again and encourage me to do better. Hence, that makes him a really friendly and inspiring person! Here is a heads up, you wouldn't get 100% potential of your track without Mikhail! Thank you!
Mikhail communicate well and delivered high quality work in a remarkable amount of time. When I asked for changes to the mix, he followed through and overall, I am very satisfied with his service. I highly recommend!
Mikhail has been very quick, dedicated and always available. And he really improved the song!
Mikhail is very fast and accurate. He really transformed my demos into something much better. He delivered way above my expectations and he was very fast and responsive to requests. I will definitely use Mikhail's services in the future.
Mikhail is incredibly awesome to work with and demonstrates professionalism, quality and speed at its finest. I had my single mixed and mastered by him despite there being an untimely delay after accepting his kind proposal due to personal circumstances. It has been a pleasure working with Mikhail and I look forward to a continuation of the professional relationship that has now been created between us. You would be serving your song well if you chose to work with someone of his stature.

Mikhail is not just a talented guy. but we crank out amazing things together!
Mikhail was very easy to work with. He's also an incredibly talented producer, and was able to create a hit song for me from scratch with very little direction from me. I'm definitely going to use him again for my future music production needs!

I've experienced working with Mikhail for a year and not only is his producing superb but so is his work ethic. Whether his task is producing a brand new track or just mastering audio files, he does it to the best of his ability and as efficiently as possible. Would definitely work with Mikhail again.
Mikhail is not only an excellent music producer, but just a great audio producer in general. He helped create small audio files for an iOS application I've been working on. The quality and efficiency far surpassed my expectations, he definitely knows what he's doing!
Working with Mikhail was a really great experience! He helped me produce my latest single and all can say is his work is great and he is super efficient. I can't wait to work with you again!
