Josh Florez on SoundBetter

Versatile Mixer and Producer with over 297 Million Streams globally. Worked with Zendaya, Tate McRae, Majid Jordan, Sam Smith & more. R&B | Pop | Latin | Gospel.

With over 10 years experience in Los Angeles, I’ve worked in a wide range of genres - from R&B & Pop to Latin, Gospel, K-Pop & Hip-Hop. Various sync placements on MTV, Netflix, Paramount + and more. Head of Audio at The Terrell Show (over 1 Million Youtube subscribers and counting)

As a producer/engineer I bridge the gap between the artist’s vision and the listeners enjoyment. Each project is approached with laser focus, open communication, and a dedication to ensuring that your music connects emotionally and sonically across all platforms. The goal is to help you get to the next stage of your music journey.
Some of my recent SoundBetter clients have gone on to get millions of streams, tour and even participate on NBC’s The Voice.

Quick background - I started as a runner at Chalice Recording Studio in Hollywood and worked my way up to become the personal recording engineer for Zendaya. Since then, I've had the privilege of working with some of my biggest influences - including Pharrell, Sam Smith, Khalid, Timbaland and more.

    Not only was Josh's turnaround time extremely impressive, but he also delivered a gorgeous master of my song! He was great to talk to, and words can't express how happy I was with the final result. He really knows how to take a track to the next level. Thanks Josh!!

    An amazing Mix & Mastering engineer! Made my track shine and put my vocals together to a big hit!

  8. Review by 18 Lines

    Josh was very encouraging and pointed out the things that could lift the track. He made sure to not only point out the things that needed to be changed, but he gave ideas on what to do about it. Finally, he gave his opinion on the next steps I should take as a producer to keep on growing and I know he was right on the money !
    Thank you Josh !

  12. Review by Michael

    An outstanding human and legendary mixing engineer. Josh is someone I can confide in personally and with any music tips, tricks, questions, and concerns. He represents professionalism, all, while still maintaining a personable and respectable attitude. He will always do what he can to work within your budget. His work is higher than quality and he is an upper echelon craftsman in his field. I am confident you will not find a better audio engineer, EVER!

  13. Review by Alex P.

    Josh was awesome to work with! Took the time to talk thru my project up front and get a feel for the project. Working with Josh was super smooth and I greatly value his tasteful and technical touches to my rough mixes. Already planning to work with him on my next project, and I can't wait. He's an excellent engineer, passionate about music, and a super nice and friendly guy. Thanks again, Josh!

    Josh was great to work with ! I’m very specific on what I want my music to sound like, he took that into account and did an amazing job while incorporating his own ideas that made the record unique. Hope to work with him again soon.

Interview with Josh Florez

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: Rosalia, Anomalie, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Brian McKnight, Bruce Swedien

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: 2022 has been a level up year for me. I recently did a week long Masterclass in studio with Josh Gudwin (Engineer/Mixer to Justin Bieber, Bad Bunny, Dua Lipa and more.) I learned so much from this experience and have been able to bring more value and professionalism to my own clients. I also, recently finished a writing/production camp with BMG Production Music and Paramount the streaming network. My collaborators and I ended up turning in 4 songs to the camp and are excited to see what opportunities can potentially follow. I'm currently finishing up a certification course for Dolby Atmos. Atmos/Spacial audio is an immersive way to experience music. Where instead of a Left and Right speaker - you are truly surrounded by sound coming from all directions. This format has taken streaming platforms by storm and seems to be the way of the future. I'm excited to be offering this service here on SoundBetter. Simultaneously, I'm stepping into a very exciting album that will carry me through the rest of the year.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Aditya - Has been assisting me for 2 years now. He's my right hand man on each and every project. He's a great mixer and a hell of a producer.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I love both - Particularly, I like to record with analog gear on the vocal chain etc. But mixing In The Box gives me a flexibility where I can work efficiently and w precision for my clients.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: That it doesn't feel like a job! I choose my own hours and get to meet amazing people everyday.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: "Can the song be louder?" My answer is YES, of course. But we will loose dynamics and life in the record AND the streaming platforms are going to bring the volume down on our song if it is coming in too loud.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: This isn't Postmates. I'm a real human just like you, and the key to hitting your vision is strong communication and patience. We might not hit your exact vision on the first pass - but that's ok. We can talk it out and make adjustments. Also, if production or vocal performance isn't good, the mix simply won't be good. The song is the cake, and the mix is the frosting on top. Know this: 1. Music takes time, and luckily we have lots of it! 2. I'm the most patient person you will EVER meet.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What do you LIKE and DISLIKE about your rough mix? Do you have any references I can keep in mind while working on your song?

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: I work best when there's a true vision of your song. With no direction I will definitely get lost. Spending quality time on your rough mix is key as this will be my blueprint. Don't be scared to ask questions. I'm here to help and I speak artist! I'm so inspired by artists who invest in their craft. It's a true honor to be trusted with others art.

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Laptop, Midi Keyboard, Coffee, My Wife and Nintendo Switch

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I studied Recording Engineering at Full Sail University and moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago. I've interned at various studios and earned my stripes. Today I operate completely as a freelance Mix Engineer & Producer.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Commutative, easygoing, open-minded, and meticulous.

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: I'd love to work with Justin Timberlake. His voice is insane and he's created an inspiring balance of music/film/and life. He's not always putting out music... but when he does... It's killer stuff!

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: Take a walk. Whenever I get stuck on a song a nice walk helps me reset and come back with a fresh perspective.

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: R&B, Reggaeton, Pop, Dance, Hip-Hop, Christian, Trap, Country

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?

  32. A: This always depends on the client, deadlines and etc. But first, I like to get all details possible about the project and then I will make an assumption about the turn around. I hit the studio everyday at 8 am - I have fun and create the first half of the day and then do mixing or production work for the second half.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: I have my own mix room at Chalice Recording Studios. I have access to a great mic locker with tons of vintage and high quality gear.

  35. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  36. A: Mixing, Mastering & Music Production

  37. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  38. A: I recently did a project for an artist named Terrell Grice. This project featured 23 of the most talented singers in the game! Avery Wilson, Brooke Simpson, and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. I recorded almost every single vocalist and also mixed and mastered the majority of the project. It's called "An Invitation to the Cookout." (available on all streaming platforms)

  39. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  40. A: My promise to my clients is that I truly care. I care about the hard work they put into their craft, and my job isn't to get in the way. I'm here to help bring YOUR vision to life & I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen!

  41. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  42. A: Mixing and Vocal Recording/Production

  43. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  44. A: I like to bring intention to a song. I'm a firm believer that simplicity can be quite beautiful. I'm very creative and love to try as many options as possible on a song BUT I never force something that doesn't feel like it truly belongs.

  • Reproducer SpeakersOct 09, 2021

    Yoo! This week I'm using some amazing speakers by a new company called Reproducer. They brought me 2 sets to try out and I'm loving them. I'm hearing more accurate low end and feel like I'm not guessing with vocal levels etc. 

    I just might use these instead of the Focals. We'll see!

  • Studio Gear Upate!Jul 09, 2021

    -Acoustic Treatment by John Hunter Acoustics. They fixed reflections in my room, added bass traps & some sweet looking floaters. 

    -FOCAL TRIO6BE monitors. I feel like I can hear in 3D now. Literally changed my life. I can make decisions faster and more confidently.

    -Townsend Labs Sphere Microphone - this thing is a BEAST.
