Samuel was very easy to work with and professional. Very talented writer and producer. Can’t wait for the next one :)
Samuel is a true pro, I'm really happy how he was able to sculpt the song to its best shape.

I just did a mastering for Samuel. This was our very first work done together but I truly hope we get to work a lot more in the future as well!
This was a great experience! Samuel guided me through the preparation of the stems, and it all made sense. He brought clarity to the song and also made good arrangement suggestions. The balance between compressor/EQ, rev/delay was achieved as only a true professional can do it. His approach and commitment are rare things to find in any marketplace.
Samuel is a super efficient, fast working and talented producer/ mixer that is an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
Interview with Samuel Aalto
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I´ll give what I´ve got to make you sound hip as long as you are happy with it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: First, If they have a reference song, or otherwise strong opinion about the mixing. Then I´ll try to implement that vision. And do they feel they need help in arrangement. How much tuning they want to vocals etc..
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First I try to really listen where the client is aiming for with his or hers production. What is the genre and overall feeling of the piece. Then I`ll start mixing vocals by adding compression and reverb.. That´s the usual start, just straight to the most important element.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am doing constantly production and mixing to local artist.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, don´t make any difference in the end if the song is great.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That mixing will make poor quality tracks sound great, you can do some extreme rescue Eq but it will not sound like Lady Gaga..:)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: No question is a stupid one. I´ll be glad to consult you about your song before mixing it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Adele, the reason is obvious. She is just amazing singer.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Ha ha, less is more!!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly electronic and pop. But that is just because these are the most popular genres at the moment. I´d love to mix jazz fusion!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring first of all clarity, that´s very important to get the message trough. Refinement also to get that "expensive" sound. Then if needed I can suggest some arrangement changes, maybe to level up the energy in the song towards the end. Or make the flow of the song to go smoother. Of course I will not touch anything if not wanted.
