I am fresh young versatile music/post mixing engineer, who has worked with many top artist such as, Ariana Grande, MGK, Fantasia and more!
I deliver high quality mixes with top level customer service, using modern mixing techniques and equipment. Whether its using out board gear to get a more of an organic sound or using an in the box approach to get a punchy pop sound, I always get the job done. I have over 7 years professional engineering and mixing experience with many artist and genres! With a list that includes some of your favorite top artist such as, Wretch 32, Chip, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland, Jakubi and many more! My sound can be described as, open, lush, and radio ready. As a mix engineer I believe its my duty to create the right mix for each song. I never use a “one size fits all” approach. Each mix I do is a custom fit! My mixing approach is to make sure the main parts of the song are creatively driven throughout the whole song, without compromising the little nuances that make a song unique. I love working with people who have that same goal in mind, to make the song as great as possible! There is nothing better than collaborating with people who like to bounce ideas off each other. The results are always surpass initial expectations. So if you looking for high quality mixes for an independent price, contact me today!
