My primary purpose is to understand my client's vision, production, and wishes. Your demo, brief, and reference songs help me understand your ideas. I love creating big, vintage but modern sounds.

Please send me your demo first, so I can be sure that I'm a good fit for you.

    I have been working with Orçun now for almost 4 years. He has been consistent in his ability to produce amazing results for my mixed songs. I can't imagine working with anyone else because he feels like he is a part of my creative team. He always takes my requests to the next level and gives everything such a nice polish. Thank you so much! I look forward to the next high quality song we work on together!

    Orcun was great to work with, communicated effectively with me, and created good mixes. He listened to my suggestions but also made changes independent of me that I liked and kept in my tracks. All around great experience. Would recommend.

    Orcun was absolutely incredible with everything one could wish for when it comes down to a discipline like this. His ability of empathy combines perfectly with a solid compassion for art and builds a bridge between friendship, arguments and creating the perfect way for a sound. Patient, deeply informed with different genres, market, artists of different range from various circles, a good professional and shows obvious potential to become top class in the game.
