3 ReviewsEndorse Shon "Casso" Haykal
Shon was great. Listened to what i asked for, delivered in a timely manor, and delivered a great mix. Definitely somebody I recommend to get work done with.
Shon was great! The song needed work and he was patient with me throughout the process. I would definitely recommend!
Shon is the real deal! Without him I would never have had the confidence to do this music! I met him in 2009 online, and if you want your music to come to life choose Shon! Because of the patience, honesty, and encouragement that HE gave me... I have gotten features with Snoop Dogg, Flo Rida, and Lil Wayne! From production to engineering he has your back! It’s an honor to work with him, and I have a session scheduled for 4/10/2019! He deserves 7 stars 🌟
