Lovingly mastering for balance, warmth, clarity and loudness. I want to maximise your music's potential and get it sounding crisp and modern for all listening environments.

I am the resident mastering engineer at ROOT73, a community arts and music organisation in London. I specialise in R&B, Trap, Hip Hop and Singer/Songwriter music, however I do welcome all genres.

I will prepare your music to commercial standards ready for radio and digital release for an accessible price. Many of the tracks I have worked with through ROOT 73 and other clients have got repeat air time on London's BBC Radio 1XTRA, Radar Radio and Reprezent Radio.

I offer a fast turnaround (2 days) and free mix appraisals prior to track masters so we don't waste time and money mastering something which could be mixed better.

£30 - 1 track master
£55 - 2 track masters
£80 - 3 track masters
£100 - 4 track masters
£22.50 per track - 5 tracks+

£45 - stem master (6 stems, + £5 per extra stem)

+£5 for same day turnaround

£5 Detailed mix appraisals for tracks not being mastered

A stem master does not include creative effects, it is for finished mixes which are not quite as clean as you'd like them to be. It offers more control in dynamics, colour, stereo imaging and eq over the individual stems, eliminating the need for making sacrifices in the final master.

All work is currently digitally mastered with high end plugins. Please get in touch for a friendly chat about your projects!

Reviews of Alex Burr - A Cut Above London

    Amazing work! Had my EP mixed and mastered by A Cut Above and I'm over the moon about it! Sounding so much smoother and sonically pleasing than before I sent my tracks over. Very efficient job and for a very reasonable price. I definitely recommend it, and on top of that, he's a super nice guy and knows his stuff. Peace!

    A cut above made the tracks I sent them so much better than I ever thought they could.

    Not usually the type to hand my music over to anyone outside my fold but A Cut Above did the sound I was going for absolute justice with a beautiful master. 100% recommended and I'll be using them for all future releases
