I'll give you my honest opinion on your mixes before mastering if you'd like. You can be confident I'll bring your mixes to their full potential.

I've been working professionally in the music industry since 1999. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, I moved to New York City where I was hired at the historic Sony Music Studios in Hell’s Kitchen as an assistant mastering engineer. I eventually worked my way up to staff engineer and was fortunate to work on a wide variety of projects for clients like Rick Ruben, The Metropolitan Opera, Kanye West, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Beyonce, Bob Dylan, PHISH, KISS, Ozzy Osborne, Shakira, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, Harry Connick Jr., and many others.

In 2007 Sony announced it would be closing its doors and shutting down operations. Luckily, I was able to purchase the entire room I worked in while at Sony and rebuild it at my current location in Brooklyn, NY. Since opening Blackler Mastering, I've had the pleasure of working on a wide variety of projects for both independent artists and major labels alike. Some of the artists I've mastered over the years include several artists under Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation, Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes, Sean Ono Lennon, Broadway star Jennifer Holiday, Jazz legends Lee Konitz, Wallace Roney, and Joey DeFrancesco, Rap legend Prodigy of Mob Deep, Reggae legends Beenie Man and Toots and the Maytals, various Ken Burns Motion Picture Soundtracks, and a 2020 Grammy nomination for Saxophonist Melissa Aldana.

    One track mastered. Excellent result. The track really stands out now, polished with additional depth and clarity. Everything you would expect from mastering. Very pleased. Highly recommend.

    I can't recommend Kevin highly enough. He's mastered every album I've done (8 and counting) because 1) he is an absolute perfectionist and will not/cannot release an album until it's completely balanced, 2) he's always improving his software/hardware so that he not only has the most high end options but he can also call up a wide array of tools to specialize his product, and 3) his unique ability as a musician/mixer gives him a depth of musical understanding and listening that is second to none. Kevin truly hears music at a whole other level and will make your music sound amazing.

    I've owned and operated the independent label 3rd Generation Recordings based in Brooklyn, NY for 10 years and since meeting and bringing my first project to Kevin he's been my go-to guy for every record we've released since. His ethic, attention to detail, and passion for tackling the challenges presented by each project is inspiring and it's always a pleasure to attend sessions to work with him in person. His willingness to give mix feedback when necessary has been very helpful along the years and I look forward to working on many more projects with him down the line.
