Pleasure to work with Bastian very professional easy to communicate with him and is always open for new ideas that go well both ways.
Professional ingeneer! Great mix and mastering skills ✍🏻
I had Bastiaan do a mix and master on a song recently. Worked out great. Nailed it on the first try. My vocals have never sounded so good. I'll be working with him again. Would totally recommend.
Professional an quick mastering. Also, Bastiaan consider artistic choices! Perfect!
Bastiaan was very professional and extremely timely in both delivery and communication. Although we are about 8 hours apart, he always responded to messages within minutes. Both his mixing and mastering work is outstanding. I chose to go with him over other sellers his work sounds superior to theirs.
Have no words for the magnificent results Bastiaan provides. I will keep on trusting him with all my projects.
