Hello, my name is Federico. I am an Italian producer, mixing and mastering engineer with 10 years of experience based in Sheffield, UK. I am not afraid of dynamics; dynamics are afraid of me.
If you are looking for a creative producer, mixing and mastering engineer look no further.
Mixing is not just about setting levels and applying EQ and compression, mixing is about having a vision and using all I need to deliver the best and most unique sounding song I possibly can.
Mixing is about being creative, making rules and breaking them. Let me break some rules for you.
Being a poly instrumentalist not only helps me understand what's going on in the song, but it also helps me to find the strong elements of each mix so I can enhance them and make them stand out. Also I can easily add layers of all kind of instruments if the songs require it.
Also, I am very quick and virtually always available (I do need some sleep as well, but that's another story) so collaborating together will be fun and you will never have huge delays on any questions or queries you may have.

Federico is a gem to work with! Wonderfully open to feedback and works efficiently and quickly. Great communication throughout the process. And most of all, creates super cool mixes! I gave him a fairly dense arrangement to work with and he not only made it sound great and implemented all my ideas but also added some creative ideas of his own that I wouldn't have thought of.
Great work again with Federico! Thanks again!
Great work! Fast and professional ! Thank you so much !
