My name is Fed, I am a producer, mixing and mastering engineer with over 10 years of experience. I've worked with artists like R A Y, Calvin Rodgers, Outta Peak among many others, helping artists of many genres to realise the full potential of their tracks, as shown by the millions of collective streams across my previous works.
If you are looking for a creative producer, mixing and mastering engineer look no further.
To me mixing is not just about setting levels and applying EQ and compression, mixing is about having a creative vision and using everything I need to deliver the best and most unique sounding song imaginable.
Mixing is about being creative - of course there are many rules all engineers rightly follow but its my philosophy to never be restricted by them! Let me break the rules for you.
Being a poly instrumentalist not only helps me understand what's going on in the melodically and rhythmically but it also helps me find the powerful elements of each mix so I can enhance them and make them stand out, adding much more spice to the song. Another huge advantage of being a musician is that I can easily add layers of all kind of instruments, if the song requires it.
I pride myself on my communication skills. I am very quick to reply and virtually always available (I do need some sleep as well, but that can always wait). Because of this, collaborating together will be fun and productive as you will never have delays on any questions or queries you may have.
I work hard right from the get go and I always deliver radio ready results from the very first revision.

Federico is always a pleasure to work with! He brings my ridiculous ideas to life quickly and creatively. The communication is always efficient and his positive outlook on life is apparent in every mix.
Federico has been my go-to mix engineer for awhile now and he's a combination of two great things: He makes cool creative choices that I wouldn't have thought of. And when I do have something very specific that needs to be done he's always perfectly capable of making it happen.
Federico did a great job again! Two songs with very different sounds and references and he nailed both. He's great at taking direction on changes and communicating his own ideas too. And always... always... a positve attitude guy to deal with. :)
Fed is a very talented and professional sound engineer and producer. He mixed and mastered our song very fast and with high quality. Highly recommended!
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 !
Fed is quite simply the best I’ve worked with, in terms of getting the best out of the song you bring to him. He has a fantastic work structure and set up around him that allows the songs every chance to reach its full potential.
Very musically astute, Fed is clearly well trained in the art of production which suits my band down to the ground. Not only that, his own experiences and influences rub off into the music he is producing, as he takes a lot of pride in what he does and puts his own stamp on things. The end result is always epic! I recommend him over anyone else.
Federico is an absolute blessing to work with! Efficient and creative pre-production, always willing to give honest and clear input, and incredibly professional all-round, while still cultivating a relaxed working environment. His mixing and mastering is utterly top-notch, and he is thoroughly dedicated to achieving the overall sound which YOU have in mind.
This was my band's first time working with Fed, following a recommendation from a friend, but it will most definitely not be our last. Cannot wait to get back in the studio with him again!
Fed is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is passionate about not only the engineering side, but also the song writing, pre and post production and will work with you to get the tracks to their highest standard. Not to mention you’ll learn a few Italian insults on the way!!! Jokes aside the guy transforms songs into serious pieces of music produced to an outstanding quality. Would absolutely recommend!
An UNBELIEVABLE talent and expert knowledge of mixing and mastering. More so, creates a very bespoke service ensuring the final product is tailored exactly how I wanted to hear it. Incredibly kind, easy to interact with and passionate.
I wouldn’t go to anyone else :)
Federico is a top Producer, Mixer and Mastering Engineer. I have for the past 4 years had all my clients mixes Mastered by Federico. His knowledge, attention to detail and critical listening is exemplary. Fabulous communication and always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend checking out his mixing and mastering services.
Fed is truly one-of-a-kind. I'm yet to find a producer with the knowledge, speed, desire and talent that he is able to bring to each and every project he works on. From thorough, inventive pre-production through to a top quality, professional final mix, Fed has a way of improving a song to a level way above what you might expect from an affordable producer, and his commitment to each of his clients and their projects never falters. You will not regret working with this guy!
My band 'On Hollow Ground' booked in with Fede at West Homesick based on a friend's recommendation. It's always a gamble when you choose to work with someone new but it certainly paid off! Fede has such a wealth of experience and references and always has interesting ideas when it comes to pre-pro. The vibe in the studio is chilled yet productive. We enjoyed working with Fede so much that we have since recorded two more singles and are booked in for another 10. I have also began working with Fede on my solo project, 'Jackari'.
I have worked with Federico from as far back as 2016 and everytime he has delivered fantastic results, he is very down to earth and professional and always respects the client's vision and goes above and beyond. He did the mixing and mastering for my old band Donestk's debut EP and we could not be happier with the end product. Since then I have outsourced a lot of Mastering work to Federico and each time he has completed the work speedily and delivered top notch results, he has also been very gracious with the amount of revisions he has done on work I have given him too. Fed is a safe bet!
Federico works harder than any producer I've worked with. He is honest and direct yet motivating and consequently does a great job getting the best possible performance out of an artist. For me the best part of working with Fed was his patience and willingness to take time with an artist to allow creativity to flow naturally in the studio, bring the best out of the music.
Genuinely couldn't recommend highly enough!
