Music Producer / Guitar Player

I am a music producer / guitar player based in Nice, France. I am happy to work on your material and will do my best to make it sound better. I had had lots of experience playing guitar in bands and working as a sound engineer in multiple recording studios before I started producing music in different genres. Some of my personal projects are Baltimore Chop (house/tech), The Soul Voyager (blues/rock), Acid Savannah (electronic), PRGVSK Records etc. On a regular basis I work with several Electronic/House labels providing mastering work for them as well as some mixing work and occasionally produce music for other artists. My clients' music range from Disco/House to Indie/Blues. I have a big background in house/electronic music production but at the same time I have worked with rock bands and have a huge passion for blues/soul/roots music.

    Max has mastered probably over a dozen songs for me and my various electronic projects. All have been a fantastic experience. Max is skilled, responsive, and easy to work with.

    Maxim did a magic recording and mastering our Manic Duo EP “Show me that door”. Great to work with a person who knows exactly what is required to achieve the needed sound! Great skills and unique equipment. Best!
