    John is a super cool guy and it was wonderful working with him. He is very knowledgeable about music and was able to point out parts of the track that needed extra production or stripping down. He was able to quickly sort out my pretty chaotic mix of almost 50 tracks into sensible instrument groups and time stamps that made it much easier to record and do vocal takes. Overall a great experience and would definitely book him again.

    Working with Gosteffects was a great experience! We did a bunch of mic tests and he was able to figure out the best mic for my voice. He was very fast and efficient and we were able to get the vocals tracked for an entire song in just one session day. Overall a great experience and would recommend to anyone who needed to record vocals on their track.

    Gosteffects killed the mix and master of an old track for me, updated the song really well, did it very quickly and took all my notes into account and made adjustments immediately and in a detailed manner. I'll definitely work with him again. Thanks!

    The song we worked on is finally coming to its final steps, after listening to the the rough draft for the past two weeks I can truly say I’m proud of what we’ve created. So unreal to think about it all, I never expected any of this prior to meeting him in the studio. Excited to get back in the studio to record vocals, mix, master and start thinking about visuals and the second song. Totally Reccomend.

    Our second day in the studio went well. We pushed our creativity to the limit, and we left with many ideas, which is a great thing. I can’t wait to see how much further we can push the limits. we are on to something and am excited to continue our projects. I left the studio feeling inspired and with a different perspective on music and the creative process. If you want to turn your creativity into color, gosteffects is your man.

    Gost has been an incredible resource for my project, WE CHIEF. His mixing, production and sound design skills are top notch. We have worked on original productions and he has mixed other tracks of ours and as a result has taken them to the next level. I would highly recommend Gost, especially for dance-related music.

    April 2014, I was looking for an EDM savvy Mix Engineer in NYC who would preserve the dynamics of my raw mix, but still make the track BANG! Gosteffects took the mix beyond my expectations! He's a chill dude with excellent communication skills who actually produces & DJs out his own EDM music, so he knows how it should sound! We're collabing again.

    For a special collaboration I needed to work with the best producer and engineer I know. After experiencing his level of talent, professionalism, next-level sound equipment I don't think I can go back to anything else. He takes his time to get it perfect and to please the customer because he cares. I feel extremely blessed to have worked with him.

Interview with Gosteffects

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: We will work in a fun and creative environment. I'll be available to answer any questions about the project you may have. Deadlines and timelines will be respected. Professional equipment will be utilized to meet the current standards of the music industry. At the end of the day I'm looking for the client to be happy, I'm here to provide my professional expertise and opinion but ultimately any direction you are wanting to take the project in will be respected and implimented.

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

  4. A: I don't think I really run into many issues there.. Maybe a technical misconception of how a process works or misconception about gear... which is usually easily cleared up through a quick conversation.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: My own personal style is kind of dark and ruff around the edges.. But I like contrast.. so the ruffness and darkness is always contrasted with delicate moments. I value both digital harshness and organic lushness the same. Everything has a purpose.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: Trent Reznor, Chris Corner, Die Antwoord, Kanye, Gaga, Marilyn Manson.. I like to work with people with unique personalities that are paving their own way.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: Idea generation, melodic elements, arrangement, a 2nd opinion for quality control. I think a lot of the time what I'm bringing to the table for artists is a way to save them time. The technical side of audio take a long time to master. It is a time saver to bring someone onto a project as a producer that can help you get your ideas into something tangible without having to spend countless hours watching tutorials on technics such as how to EQ a vocal. On the creative side it can also be a time saver to have a 2nd voice there to say, "yes! this is great!, now let's move onto the next phase." Having someone to bounce ideas off of and receive feedback can help move the project along.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I've got rid of a lot of gear recently and tried to simplify and focus on workflow. I like to get ideas down quickly while the inspiration is there. Right now I'm running all in the box and I've never been happier. My main pieces of gear I use every day are my computer + UAD hardware and software + ATC monitors + Audeze headphones + Cranesong Avocet.

  13. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  14. A: This year in 2016 I finished 2 projects I'm very proud of. One is an album for a band called Army of the Universe. I acted as producer for the album and mixed the songs as well. The other project was a co-production for JX Riders feat Skylar Stecker which went to #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart. That was my first billboard number one.. and I'm planning on that not being the last :p

  15. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  16. A: Right now I'm 1/2 way through the album for a Brooklyn based group called We Chief. Its a mix of pop, dance hall, cumbia, trap, and downtempo music. There are two vocalists in the group. It should be out sometime in 2017.

  17. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  18. A: There's a vocalist on SoundBetter by the name of Lachi. We worked together with a client on a deep house record. I would definitely recommend her if you ever need some powerful soulful vocals.

  19. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  20. A: Working with interesting people, making new friends, helping people express themselves, and seeing art being released into the world.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: I think one of my strongest skills I have learned is have clarity of vision and direction for art, I have enough experience at this point I don't really second guess things as much. I work based of intuition and I am able to comfortably bring projects to a close with quality in a timely manor.

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

  24. A: I find inspirations in a lot of different types of creative people. I'm inspired by someone that has a wide spread musicial abilities and can blend into many different genres as a producer... I'm also inspired by those that have a narrowly defined aesthetic and specialize in a specific sound. For my own music as an artist I find a lot of inspiration from visual cues, fashion, things of that nature. Sometimes I like to imagine a place, and people, and create music based on what would fit that environment.. whether that be a nightclub, a festival, or a more intimate setting.

  25. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  26. A: Sometimes I'll work with producers that have technical questions. I'm always happy to talk shop :)

  27. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  28. A: Have a creative vision for what you are trying to accomplish, it all starts there. The details we can hammer out.

  29. Q: What's your typical work process?

  30. A: If I'm working with an artist I like to just talk with the artist first to get a vibe of where they are trying to take the music. Maybe we will listen to a few things that are inspiring them at the moment. Then I might work for awhile and we will go over what I did and talk about if its the right direction. Repeat until we feel its a finished product ready to release into the world.

  31. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  32. A: A lot of times I'll ask for reference material. I'm really good at matching something sonically.

  33. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  34. A: I've been producing my own music, DJing, and throwing club events for 15 years. The last few years I've been producing other artists and I really love it!

  35. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  36. A: I love both! Digital for being surgical. Analog for being alive.

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

  38. A: computer, speakers, midi keyboard, audeze headphones, piano

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

  40. A: Step 1: have fun ;)

  41. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  42. A: Electronic based music. That could be anything from Industrial to Dancehall to Cumbia to Ambient to EDM to pop.

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

  44. A: Production / Mixing / Mastering A lot of times artists will take a song as far as they can take it.. and I'll be brought on to do the final touches.
