Mix and mastering engineer specialising in pop, indie and alternative genres. My goal is to help artists create timeless tracks with an alternative flavour.
My name is Guy Britton and I am a mixer and mastering engineer working from just outside of Bath, UK. I specialise in pop and alternative-pop genres, always looking to push the boundaries and create a sound which is unique and exciting but that also defines you as an artist.
I work mostly with independent artists who are focused on growing their identity and developing their own niche with their music.
I have helped take independent artists from unknown acts to having our work broadcast on national radio and TV in the UK (BBC Radio 1 & 2, BBC 2) whilst also featuring on major Spotify editorial playlists and amassing over 5 million streams on Spotify.
I love big, modern sounding mixes that still have some retro flavours. If you are looking to create something unique, tasteful and exciting then contact me - I'd love to help.

Working with Guy again was awesome, he delivers amazing quality every time and is extremely accommodating and responsive! I'm excited to work with him again in the future!
Guy was an absolute pleasure to work with, his knowledge and vision helped my band and I bring our mix to life and give it a professional sound. He is extremely patient and very respectful of his clients vision. Very fast mix and master turnaround as well and very easy to converse with. If you are looking for a worry free, professional sounding mix and master, Guy is the way to go, you won't regret it.
Guy's attention to detail and organization made working with him so easy. He was quick to reply even though we were in different time zones, and was very patient with all of my changes. Most importantly he captured my vision of the song and I'm very happy with it!
Guy's nice, fast and reliable. Highly recommend him!

A pleasure working with Guy again and getting my song mixed and mastered. Great experience!
Another two mixes from Guy! I am a 100% happy about the result and he is so easy to work with during the process, quickly sending new versions with my adjustments. Will definitely recommend him and looking forward to many more collaborations.
Great working with Guy again and an even quicker process this time because he already knew what I wanted. Can't wait to collaborate again soon!
Working with Guy was great. He took any notes/adjustments and quickly responded with updates. He took the mix to another level and I will definitely work with him again. Thank you so much Guy!
Guy was the mixing engineer on one of my songs and I can highly recommend him. He was super fast to reply and he understood my vision and ideas right away and put them into the mix within a short time span. Will definitely reach out for Guy for future collaborations.
Guy is an absolute professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who's looking for an absolutely class mix engineer for their project. My band is based in the US, but even despite the time difference Guy was incredibly timely and able to work with our tight deadlines, and most importantly the finished project sounds awesome. 10/10.

Interview with Guy Britton
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: At the very start of the process I send a form to every artist I work with which allows them to tell me all the details about what they're looking for. This helps us to be on the same page from the start and ensure that I totally understand what it is they're trying to do. Once I have the form back, I'll ask for the multitracks and a rough mix which I'll listen to a couple of times to get a feel for how it aligns with the information they've given me and then we'll have a conversation about any things I think we can enhance or develop further. Once we're all happy that we're on the same page, I'll put together the first mix. I know a lot of mixers don't like doing revisions but for me it's a crucial part of the process. My first mix is typically a 'broad strokes' mix to get a vibe and overall feeling going within the song, then I'll use the artist's revisions to really nail down the details. This is a much better way of working for me. In my experience, it's much easier to send a first mix which isn't totally complete and work with the artist to finish it rather than sending over something which is already baked in and trying to unpick the details of it to take it somewhere else.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: 'DEMAND' - Does Everything Make A Noticeable Difference? Only do things that definitely impact the production. If I can't hear a difference that a certain part is making, or a certain plugin, then it's almost guaranteed that the average listener isn't going to hear a difference. Get rid of anything that isn't making a noticeable difference.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always aim to communicate as clearly as I possibly can with the people I'm working with. A lot of the time when people reach out to work with me they've got stories about engineers they've worked with in the past and they often say things like "the last person who mixed our record just didn't get it, they didn't take any of the notes on board and what we ended up with wasn't what we had in mind". My promise is to not be that guy! I try my best to understand exactly what the artist wants and deliver that. And if the artist isn't totally sure what they want, it's important to communicate ideas to help them find that thing they're looking for. If there's things I think could be done differently I'll communicate that first, or if there's any reason things might not be delivered on time - I'll always be as clear and as honest as I possibly can with my clients.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this professionally for about 10 years now. My experiences started making Hip Hop beats, then I went on to play in rock bands, then to producing singer-songwriters and now I've landed at mixing pop music, and I feel like somehow I manage to take something from all of those experiences and apply it to what I do now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like big drums and clear vocals. I'm also a big fan of productions that incorporate fresh new sounds with more 'retro' sounding elements.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Jack Antonoff. His approach to production and creating music is really interesting to me and he seems like a great guy to be around.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly pop music. More specifically indie pop and pop music that has some unique flavour in it somewhere.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Knowing how to get the vocal to sit has always been something that I've felt I have a knack for, so yeah my strongest skill for a technical point of view is probably to do with getting the vocal right in the mix. Aside from purely mix-based skills, I'm an organised person and I take communication very seriously, which I think is a skill.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like mixes that have contrast - some gritty elements combined with pretty elements. Contrast is what gives the music depth and excitement so I like to try and bring that to a mix wherever possible.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup is mostly ITB with a few pieces of select hardware. Being able to turn around mixes quickly and efficiently for artists is really important to me so I'm always looking for practicality and efficiency as much as anything when putting my studio together.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The majority of my work is mixing pop music, particularly indie pop artists.
