I am a mixing/mastering engineer with over 12 years of experience specializing, but not limited to, hip hop & R&B. Style: MODERN mixing/mastering, competitive with the current industry. My goal is to make your track sound comparable or better than songs of the style your track is. Upfront, Powerful, and Clean. I have done plenty tracks for Ray J.
Working with your rap/R&B track I am able to do any type of mastering style you want. SZA, Mary J Blige, Migos, and Lil Uzi Vert all have different mastering styles. I am able to do all. I am also able to make those type of beats for any style. Just let me know your references, and lets work! I am student of the game and I am always working on my craft, learning WHY certain beats or mastering/mixes sound the way they do.
