LA based mixing engineer and music producer who will bring your music to a professional level. 50% off first time mixing clients with unlimited mix revisions and 72 hour turnaround time. Let's get started!
Jordan McLeod is a music producer, mix engineer, and songwriter from Virginia. He began by DJing and producing in his bedroom which led to the formation of EDM duo Kids Want Techno. The duo saw success as their music was streamed millions of times around the world and played gigs with EDC, The Chainsmokers, Matoma, Lost Kings, and more.
Music would eventually take Jordan to LA where he attended Icon Collective College of Music. While at school, he began working at The Fab Factory music studio and gained hands-on experience that could not replicated in school. And, as a dream come true, he sat in with the legendary Grammy winning mix engineer Dave Pensado to learn everything he could over the course of his time there.
After almost 2 years at Fab, Jordan took what he learned and left to focus on freelancing and his own music project Years of Youth. Jordan brings knowledge of production and songwriting into the mixing process; offering a more creative perspective compared to only using by-the-book techniques. His decision making process focuses on the feeling and emotions of a song, breathing more life into the final mix.
In addition to mixing, Jordan offers recording and production sessions in Los Angeles, contact for more details!

Jordan's worth every penny and more.
Not only does he go above and beyond on a project but he is also willing to help you improve your work. He's once again shown to be someone worth any price.

always does an amazing job!
First off, I want to thank SoundBetter for linking me up with Jordan 2 years ago. We hit it off and he's been my go to guy for everything from producing to mixing. I highly recommend him! He's super professional, a team player and very detail oriented. I'm really grateful we've connected and I'm excited for both of our future projects. Thank you Jordan! :-)
Soooooo great. Jordan is the GREATEST. I am so grateful to have worked with him. He put up with all the requests from me and my team and he was incredibly fast and professional. He is 10/10.
Half of me doesn't want to leave this review so I can keep Jordan to myself. But I honestly couldn't speak more highly of him and his work.
Amazing professional (which is often hard to find in the music industry), incredible patience, great ability to let individual sounds co-exist, very knowledgable, and overall just a great experience. You honestly can't lose working with Jordan and I couldn't recommend him more.
Jordan has done two songs of mine now and he's amazing! Very patient, follows directions very well and is always quick to produce edits. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Jordan is what I was looking for. He was easy to work with and made the songs sound better and smoother. I will definitely work with him again!
wow, great job Jordan, love the crispness.
This is the second time I have used Jordan for my project and he never fails to amaze me! His work is excellent and he is always communicating with you through the whole process. I highly recommend Jordan if you want your music to sound radio ready! You won't be disappointed!
Jordan made my music sound so professional! Super well balanced, full, and wide mixes with a lot of dynamic range. He works really fast and is in constant communication with you as he works on your project. I’m super happy with the work he did for me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Jordan made the somewhat nerve-wracking process of having my first track mixed a total breeze. His communication was excellent, and he was amenable to any and all changes. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional mixing - you won't find better quality for this price anywhere else.
Pro mix job and a pleasure to work with!! Jordan is gonna be my go to mix guy from now on. Thanks again!!
It was a pleasure working with Jordan again. Super patient and professional! Great work!

I send all my mixes to Jordan, and honestly my songs wouldn't have the clarity and crispness they do without him. By far one of the best mix engineers in the game. 10/10 recommend.

Interview with Jordan McLeod
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm not familiar with anyone else on SoundBetter.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Is mastering included in the price of mixing? Yes.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Kevin Parker because he is everything I aspire to be. He can write, play, sing, produce, mix, and perform at such a high level.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When it comes to mixing, I like to start with the very basics: setting faders levels and doing basic EQ and compression to build the foundation of the mix. From there I begin to work the vocals, then will add elements back in starting with the drums and building up from there.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My home studio set up consist of Yamaha MSP5 studio monitors, an UAD Apollo Twin Quad, a Custom Hackintosh with Pro Tools 12, Logic X, and Ableton 10. Currently, I work completely in the box with top of the line plugins such as UAD, iZotope, and Soundtoys.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Musicians: Tame Impala, M83, Daft Punk, The xx Engineers: Dave Pensado, Serb Ghenea, Josh Gudwin, Tom Norris
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I have been working with an artist called LEADR for over a year and the music is finally started to be released. He is an incredible singer, songwriter, and producer and I am so happy to have been apart of it. I helped produce, record vocals, and mix a few of the songs that are coming.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know what you are looking, what you expect the final product to sound like. Let me know what you like so far, and what you think needs more improvement. Be as detailed as possible to help me do the best job that I can do.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for about 7 years now. I started out DJing when I was in high school and soon started to create my own music. I moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2018 to attend a year long music production school and graduated at the end of the year. I worked at The Fab Factory learning from the great mixing engineer Dave Pensado for almost 2 years. I now freelance engineer while continuing to work on my own personal artist project that I hope will be ready to release near the end of 2020.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't let your ego second guess creative decisions, feel the music and use that for direction.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A creative ear that can show you a whole new perspective on your song. If that's not what you are looking for, I will execute your rough mix to perfection just the way you imagined it.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and Producing
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being a hybrid of producer and engineer, crossing two different sets of skills in a way that delivers a unique final product.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to work with music everyday.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To deliver a product that you will be thrilled about.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It has to be a mix of both. Mixing in the box is a lot easier and efficient, however, there is not denying the warmth and color that analog can provide which is why summing though gear is a great way to keep it alive.
Q: How would you describe your style?
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have a reference track? What don't you like about the track? How do you imagine the final version to sound? Are you open to me making creative changes that I feel might be best for the track?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I do not know what I am doing.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My own solo project.
