Quick, affordable, artist-friendly engineer. Your music is my reputation. And I don’t play with either.
I love creating vibes. I’m a music lover/artist myself and I take every job as serious as my own sessions. I let my work speak for itself.

Interview with Lusaid Sounds
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly do mixing for hip/hop and R&B tracks with non-tracked out instrumentals and pre-recorded vocals. I take the artist's vision and create a sonic representation of the songs emotion.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Lu Diaz and MixedbyAli are two engineers I am inspired by professionally. The engineers who have worked with Rae Sremmurd and Wiz Khalifa also inspire me when I listen to their work. All Soul and R&B records tend to inspire me with the mixing of harmonize and adlibs and how vocals sit in the pocket and drive home the feel of a record. Music in general inspires me.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a home studio set up based off my MacBook Pro 2015. Aka my 3rd arm. I work with Pro Tools 11 HD.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the rough of the record and determine where the song needs to go. Once I listen to it I get a pretty vivid picture of where the sonics need to go to take the record to the next level. Then it's just a matter of me zoning out and putting my flavor on it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring connection to a song. Mixing wise, what I put on a song is what I would want to hear if I wasn't the one mixing it. What I would want to hear to inspire myself to mix something similar. I mix a song until it inspires me. That's when it is done.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill I would say is taste. Good taste is half the battle with music, execution is the other.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Like I stated before I typically get Hip-Hop or R&B songs. Ive done pop before as well but not on a scale professional enough to really say I have. I'm very open to doing all types of music. There just isn't a lot of that music needing to be mixed in my area.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Mix with your eyes closed and ears open.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: At this point in my career I'd love to work with everyone. I would love to just sit and watch on a Dr. Dre session or DJ Khaled session.
