    Amazingly creative, and took the song exciting places I wasn't expecting. Overdelivered on options and arrangement ideas. Great melodies and tasty sounds. Polite and professional. Mike is a terrific collaborator who I'd be happy to use again.

    I needed synth parts replicated and Mike turned around five midi and audio tracks very quickly. Will definitely be able to use them as a building block for multiple layers. A+

    Mike is awesome, and working with him was an all-around great experience! He's an extremely good and detailed communicator, which makes the revisions process really smooth. Super quick turnaround time, but not at the expense of quality. He's a talented engineer who's clearly on his game - definitely recommend working with him!
