    Michael is one of the best engineers i've ever worked with. Super professional, applies feedback perfectly, and it only takes a couple of revisions before it's done. He's also generally just a really nice guy. I love working with him and plan to send most of my artists to him going forward.

    Michael is absolutely amazing! I work with a lot of engineers and he is top notch. He sent me a rough draft, I sent him my notes and it literally took one small tweak after that and we were done. And I can be very particular. Will definitely be reaching out to Michael for a lot more work in the future. I highly recommend him!

    It was great working with Michael. Quickly he got what I wanted to communicate with the song and he is very good at creating awesome arrangements/tracks. I am very impressed by what he can do. It’s in the details and transitions. And he edited the tracks until I was happy. Very nice guy!
    The only thing was the attention to detail that was missing a bit when it came to the edit of the vocal. It took a lot of listing and highlighting from my side. But everything worked out nicely in the end.

    Michael is not only a talented producer/mixer, but also a very awesome person. He keeps the process very fun, very pleasant, and more importantly, keeps it stress free experience.

    Michael is the best hidden gem I've ever found! His professionalism and quality of production beyond exceeded my expectations. He is super easy going and very receptive of any suggestions or changes I wanted to make. I wanted to find the right direction to go with my music and his knowledge and creative ability helped me find exactly what I was looking for. There is not enough stars to rate him! Extremely happy I found him and so grateful for the 3 tracks we have worked on so far.

    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

    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.

    Michael Khan has an excellent production ear! He gets right away what you're wanting to make happen in your song and embellishes upon that with flair and authenticity. Each song he produces for us is so sonically clean and top notch, people at libraries have asked me about it. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! We're definitely going to keep coming back to Michael, because we trust we'll always get a great final product. Plus, he really works with you until you're super happy with the final cut. Thanks again Michael, we just love our new song!

    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!
