MIXING & MASTERING ENGINEER /// APPLE DIGITAL MASTER CERTIFIED /// AUDIO & VIDEO STREAMING FOR MIX PROJECTS
I worked with Miloco Studios for over 10 years, who managed me as an engineer/producer and called on me for many sessions. From international Hip Hop stars Wiz Khalifa and Ludacris to indie rock band The Yeah, Yeah Yeahs.
I have had a hand in 2 x UK #1 records and I also mixed the branding music for the UK's most popular TV channel BBC 1, which ran for 6 or 7 years and was broadcast over 100,000 times!
I have streaming directly from Pro Tools, so I can send you a live audio/video feed anywhere in the world of the mix in progress. 2-way communication helps nail the mix quickly and efficiently.
I pride myself on being very easy to work with, highly motivated, and completely focused on getting the best results.

Matt was very profession totally understood the vision of the song instantly! Added some great sounds and overall master was incredible. Also very good at communicating and speedy with the project whilst also delivering a high quality mix. Looking forward to working on future projects. Highly recommend.
Second mix mastered by Matt. Excellent work!
Matt is a great professional! We were able to have a very good communication, he was available to discuss all details until he understood exactly what I needed, so we managed to end up with an amazing master, that I had in my head, but I was struggling to express it.
Working with Matt has been an incredible experience, he is committed to his art and has mastered the craft. Not only did he help me achieve the very best for my track but I also learned a lot in the field of music production and really appreciate the time and effort he was willing to put in for me.
My second time working with Matt, he was fantastic throughout and I came away with a great end mix :)
Another awesome mix by Matt!
Matt is one of the best I've worked with A "TOTAL" pro, a master at his craft. A great guy too. What sets Matt apart is his vested interest in the job; he takes it as his own, and it is, of course, but he wants to make sure it's perfect for you. And I threw a lot at him; he was totally cool and creative as well in the process. Highly Recommend.
Another amazing job from Matt
Working with Matt was fantastic! He was very responsive throughout the whole process and he really knows his stuff.
He worked his magic and got my amateur recording to sound professional and amazing. I’ll definitely be working with him in the future!
Matt did a great on my song, very professional and great to work with, Legend!
You will not find a higher level of professionalism/quality of work than when you work with Matt Foster. He's extremely efficient and detail oriented, also a very good communicator. Would recommend 10/10!
He really takes care of your mastering process
Matt transformed my project to a whole different level! His innovation and style made my song 10x better. I am super satisfied with his commitment, hard work, creativity and excellent communication from the beginning. 110% recommended him for your music projects. I am sure I will be working with him in the future :) Thank you Matt!

Great master from Matt yet again! looking forward to the next :)
Off to the billboard with this one yo
I highly recommend Matt for mixing and mastering. He worked with me on my house track and took my mix to the next level. Matt brought a wealth of knowledge to the project and his experience showed. Matt also did a live stream with myself in which we talked about the track and could discuss any changes, which was very important. I am very happy with the end product and will be working with Matt again in the future.
Interview with Matt Foster
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I have already worked with some of my favourite artists - however Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley will always be close to the top of my list. They changed the world of music in the very brief amount of time that they were active - and I feel they both had so much more amazing music to create.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, because there are huge benefits of both worlds.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To treat your song as if it were my own.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic guitar, crazy good Soundsystem, powerful laptop, amazing headphones and a vinyl record deck with 1000s of records - I guess I would need some solar power too!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sure, monitor quietly for most of the time when mixing. Turn it up loud only for short periods.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Hip Hop, Rock, EDM, House, Techno and everything in between.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think balancing the technical with the creative and artistic.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to make as much magic happen as possible, if that be creative touches to make the song shine, or a certain groove, feel or sound. Making the vocals project with extreme clarity and energy. Letting the song dictate the direction and hitting it out of the park.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I have an assistant who helps me prepare for mixes and also bounces stems etc. Which I am extremely grateful for and leaves me to focus on the actual mix and mastering. I do though, often do my own preparation as it is a good way to get familiar with the song. I always start by listening to a rough or demo mix, and by making notes. I like to become very familiar with the song and forge a strong vision of where to go with the mix. I always try to find that unique balance that just sounds on point, effortless and faultlessly balanced. I know from experience that when you put the time in to make that happen, the mix really brings the song to life!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a purpose-built studio with extensive acoustic treatment that is geared towards mixing and mastering. I have a wide selection of analogue gear for processing, centred around a powerful Pro Tools Ultimate / Logic Pro DAW setup. Neve, SSL, Manley, Distressor, 1176 etc and a selection of 3 speaker systems from very large to very small, as well as a number of headphones 🎧 My plugin list is enormous, even after I have reduced it several times 😂
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: So many, and in truth most people who dedicate themselves to music inspire me. I am most inspired by musicians who are singular and have a very strong sense of the artist or creator they are. They do not have to be prolific or uber-successful even 😎
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Firstly thank you for the interview. The most common work projects I undertake are mixing and mastering across a variety of genres. I am super lucky in that I work on a wide variety of musical styles with people all over the globe, and some really amazing artists, producers and musicians. I also write and produce music for TV, Radio and film and whilst this is not my main type of work, I have had a lot of my own productions featured over the years from TV shows to movies 🎬
