As a developer of artists and producers, I am very versed in many genres and offer good, clear sonics through mixing, and can offer "industry loudness" to your final master. Sound like the big artists on the radio!
I can do remote mixes by having you send files online and can offer a quick turn-around time. I attended The Los Angeles Recording School in 2007 and since have worked with artists such as Nipsey Hussle, Dom Kennedy, and E40 as a producer. I specialize in the clarity of vocals in songs and always strive to provide uniqueness to each mix to allow your sound to compete in major markets. I can produce new records and I have many songs in archive. I can also enhance existing beats.
