Emrah Celik on SoundBetter

Hey there! I am an audio engineer from Sweden, 2X nominated (2014-2021), and won the award in 2021 as "audio engineer of the year" in L.Heroes Sweden. I am also a certificated mixer by Grammy-winning Andrew Scheps, Greg Wells, and John Paterno. With my 25 years of experience in audio engineering, I will make sure that you receive a masterpiece.

With more than 1.5 billion streams, number 1 hits, and global chart success under my belt, I am an officially registered Apple Masters provider engineer. I have been producing, mixing, and mastering music for years, with particular expertise in the EDM, HipHop, and TRAP, etc genres. In my opinion, a mixing engineer cannot excel at delivering masterpieces across multiple genres. I strongly believe that engineers should specialize in specific genres, just as doctors have expertise in particular areas of the human body :D. It's challenging to create a great EDM track if you have experience mixing and mastering rock, country, metal, etc., and vice versa.

Computer-based mixing is a complex topic, and many mix engineers who work with multiple genres struggle to deliver "club-ready" songs as they often focus on "radio-ready" mixes. My primary focus is on computer-based music, and while a mix engineer may not always be a club DJ, I have extensive experience in DJing since 1997. This experience taught me exactly how an EDM track should sound in festival and nightclub settings. If you are looking for an engineer who is dedicated to EDM and has the necessary experience to deliver "club/festival-ready" tracks, then you have found the right profile. Please don't hesitate to contact me, and I will help you achieve that magical sound for your EDM tracks.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    What more can I say about Emrah-? another successful project with him at the helm this year

    I think he is a clairvoyant engineer-every track I've sent him has been treated with incredible technical precision, deep musical understanding and artistic touch.

    He gets me the sonic results Im after with each track, but also unlocks new dimensions within them. Amazed by his skill, dedication and results: he is a true master and we're lucky to have him around!

    Working with Emrah was a real pleasure. He knows both the electronic genre and his craft meticulously and works like a real professional from start to finish. He's highly communicative at every step letting you know what exactly is happening and why. And he's just as adept when it comes to listening and taking onboard feedback.

    It would be extremely difficult to find someone who truly cares about treating your work properly as much as Emrah. I look forward to bringing him in on future projects!

Interview with Emrah Celik

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: There are a lot of them. Every song I work on I'm proud because they all sounded better than it was before.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on mixes that I get daily basis.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Well, no I don't know anybody so I can't recommend to my clients.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: It does not matter, both are tools. Tools are not making sound better but the experienced engineer does. I can make sound better in both analog or digital. You can't tell the difference.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: It will sound better than what it is now. 100%

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: Make somebody excited and happy is the thing I like most about my job. That's why I started with my illegal radio when I was 13. I started making my neighbourhood happy first, taste was great and I will continue until I die.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Can you make this track sound better? - Ohh hell yeah!

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Great mix start with great production. You can't just produce bad music and expect it to be most viewed song on Youtube. But no worries, I'm here for you to tell you truth that can be hurt in the beginning but good days are coming :)

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: How can I help you to feel magic?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Always credit the passion.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: No need 5 piece of gear. My computer, a pair headphones and a soundcard are good enough for me to deliver high level of music.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: It was back in 2010 when I entered the top charts with my productions but I have been collecting information, knowledge since 1993.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I am very very passionate about music and I love to rule sound.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I can work with any EDM artist on the planet and add a magic to their songs.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Make music with heart and do not try to be too technical. Music is soul not a robot.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: EDM-EDM-EDM. Anything that you produce with computer I can make it sound better!

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Experience of course. I have been in music business since I was 13. I put a radio transmitter and started sending illegal radio signal on my neighbourhood and my playlist nothing but all the 90's great EDM songs. My illegal radio become very popular but shut down by officers later so I was hired by an official legal radio to keep playing great music. Since then my strongest skill is feeling to the great music and my experience. I KNOW exactly how good song should be and should sound. Grammy winning genius Greg Wells told me that I can compete with the top engineers like the f**king best one once he listened my mixes. Andrew Scheps could not find any issue with my mixes and told me "bravo!" which is a proof that i'm on the right path and my experience and knowledge is at highest level.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring life, story, competition and sonically perfection to a song.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I start by listening the song that i'm working on entire day. I live with the track that day to feel where to go with the track. I try to sketch a story with it in my mind and then I open my session, first thing I do is to put that story into the track, balance everything nicely, get the vibe going and then I start mixing the channels that I feel they need to be enhanced. Once I'm done mixing, I listen the story again and if it's exactly like in my mind I start testing it technically to make sure it's also competitive with industry standards. At the end of work process I all have nothing but a perfect sounding song.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a private studio which I'm not sharing with someone else, I spend most of my time in the studio making sound better. It's acoustically fantastic, I have multiple monitoring system to not miss anything from the sound source also I have Powered Speakers that can be used in a club so I can test my project on that system too to make sure everything is perfect. 1000's of plugins that worth more than 10K USD, some gears I use here and there, great converters, powerful computer and the most important than anything in my studio which is my ears. :) They are golden.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I don't really follow or check some names in the business, I like to dig deeper and find great songs that is mixed great and it does not have to be a professional. Professionals are just the lucky names and I have seen much better works than a grammy winning pro produced, mixed or mastered. I love music that is not coming from like a robot is mixed, mastered or produced. I love music that is made by heart.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I usually mix and master EDM songs. I don't just mix what is there but I give advices if there is missing in the arrangement, song structure, harmonic problems, instrument performance, sound selection, phase issue etc. This is complete job rather than just EQ'ing or compressing the tracks.
