Hi I'm Michael Khan - music producer/mixer from Virginia based in Los Angeles. I have 10+ years of experience working in a variety of genres such as Pop, Hip Hop, R&B, EDM & World Music (ex. Latin, Afro etc.). I've worked with artists such as Showtek, Bebe Rexha, Sam James, Daniel Skye, JVZEL, Mickey Shiloh, Kim Viera, Lord Afrixana, Cr3on & more.
Music Production/Mixing/Mastering (general turn around time = 1-2 weeks)
- I can produce your song to the vision and style for which you desire while giving it commercial presence.
- I can produce around a pre-existing vocal and give it the sound that suits the song best while still cohesive with your vision.
- I can produce/compose an original track accordingly to the style you want prior to vocals.
Mixing/Mastering (3-6 days depending on complexity/quantity)
- I can mix/master your song to the quality that is comparable to what is on the radio.
- My sound aims toward Top 40 so what I can provide is a clean, pristine sounding mix with a modern touch.

I finished another song with Michael and I am always impressed with his pop instinct with songs..looking forward to more. Recommended
second job w/ michael and excited to work on more!
Michael was great! He gave my song a fullness I wasn't able to achieve on my own. Super quick mix and master turnaround and was always ready to respond to any messages/questions I sent his way. Looking forward to working with him again soon!
Really nice person to message with! Really quick and efficient! I'd love to work with him again in the future with mixing and more mastering!
I recently finished another song with Michael and I was delighted with the way he developed the song.He sure got that 'Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy' drum sound that I wanted. Mix was difficult too due to many vocal stems but this is one of his fortes and he did a great job .Book him before the Stars do
Michael recently remixed and revisited a Xmas song i had done and gave it a nice modern feel and better mix.I recommend him for a variety of jobs
Very fast and professional. Mixes sounded awesome!
Michael was excellent to work with. He was quick and did a particularly great job in bringing a professional finish to my song by making it fuller with sounds that complemented what was already there. I'd definitely recommend and work with him again!
I also came across Michael out of the blue recently but what a talented Producer I discovered.I see people outlining what a terrific Mix Engineer he is and I can't argue but for me its his sense of Modern pop that stands out and his ability to optimise a song and being in tune with writer.I totally recommend him to work with
Micheal is the best I ever had, and that's not a cliche.
I met him by mistake really, I was skeptic about him because the little review rate and all, but ones I gave him a go he surprised me, like a magician really
one of the best mixing engineers I have work with on EDM music
Very understanding and professional sounding
Michael is a very talented modern producer..i gave him a guitar track that he transformed into EDM pop tune. i highly recommend using him…i have given him another track to work on already...Michael is a fantastic producer with a great ear
I must say that Michael did a great job on my son's song to make it sound CURRENT! We found Michael easy to work with and he was very accommodating when we had suggestions. I would emphasize that it was Michael's creativity/artistry that elevated a beautiful piano/vocal song to a "radio ready" pop song that's a real winner! We would definitely work with Michael again, and that's going to happen repeatedly! I recommend Michael as a producer to anyone who wants to get his/her music out there for the masses, hands down!
Michael is an amazing producer/mixer! I've worked with him on a couple of my latest releases and I'm super impressed with his work! Not only is he great at what he does but he's really easy to work with and is very passionate about the music. He knows how to get the sound you want and knows what's needed to make it sound like a hit!
Michael is truly very talented, he knew exactly the sound I was looking for and made it happen in no time! I'm looking forward to doing more songs, I'm definitely in great hands :)
