Aleksi Godard on SoundBetter

Aleksi has over a decade of professional experience as a drummer, mixer, and producer. The artists he's worked with have accumulated millions of streams. He's currently on staff at The Hit Factory in New York City. Some of his favorite credits include Joan Jett, Pop Smoke, A$AP Ferg, Lenny Kravitz, 88rising, Imani Graham, Fake Dad, and Boyish.

Please contact me to discuss your goal and budget. On average I tend to charge 5 times less than most of my peers at this level.

All the credits listed are real, from real sessions that I've worked on as an audio engineer, producer, and/or musician, most of them during my ongoing position of staff engineer at the Hit Factory (Germano Studios) in New York City, regarded as one of the best studios in the world.

Now, I don't know what kind of clowns are in charge of collecting and inputing the credits for each label (and I've worked with the big 3 and dozens of their subsidiaries) so most times I end up "officially" credited for things where I didn't do much (Roddy Ricch, Lunay, that one Oscar I won...) and usually don't get a proper credit for when I actually "engineered" something (Cardi B, Joan Jett, etc.).

If you are still undecided as to if you should hire me, check out this (vaguely up-to-date) playlist with stuff I worked on:

    10/10 communication. Such a nice guy to work with especially when it came to revisions. Very generous and very easy to work with.

    Aleksi displayed professionalism and the demeanor of someone whom I'd work with long-term and be able to trust with my music. He has both the technical skills and the artistic/creative ear to help bring my vision to life. If you're an artist who has a unique sound and looking to succeed, I absolutely recommend working with Aleksi. After sending him a demo mix and detailing the sound/vibe I was after, he nailed it after 1 revision. Great experience and will be hiring him for a full album. 100%.

    Damn what can I say... Aleksi is an absolute pro and I'm so glad I decided to work with him. I had a fairly bare arrangement and a couple of vocal layers, but somehow he was able to create this huge space and gave attention to every little detail. His work process is very organized, and gives detailed instructions to get everything started. I highly recommend Aleksi for your next project. I'm definitely looking forward to working with him again.

    I had 9 songs mixed, mastered and produced by Aleksi with 3 of them also adding drums/percussion recorded live by Aleksi. Aleksi is great to work with and brings a creative ear to the project. He communicates in a timely manner and is a wonderful collaborator. He helped make my songs sound like I imagined them to sound even when I did not have the right words to describe what I wanted. I highly recommend Aleksi and would gladly work with him again!

    Aleksi is an excellent mixer who has a very fast turnaround - Always communicative and really good at taking creative notes to fit the sound to the artist's direction. He has all the tools to deliver solid and powerful mix that anyone would be happy with. I highly recommend him - you'll come out with an amazing song!

    I had the pleasure to work with Aleksi multiple times, as a Drummer and as an Engineer. He is professional, reliable, talented and very attentive to details. He makes the environment enjoyable so that creativity is never stopped. I would recommend him to anybody in need of an engineer or drummer. 100%

    I have worked with Aleksi respectively as a recording engineer, producer, drummer and mixing engineer. Each time we have worked together he has been truly professional and easy to work with. He has a great ear and is well invested in the vision of the artist, whilst also bringing a fresh perspective. As a mixing engineer he is thorough and artistic, and I have always loved the final product. I highly recommend hiring Aleksi for whatever you need!

    Aleksi is an incredible producer and mixer, with an amazing ear for framing the music and sounds around the heart of the lyrics. He and I have worked on many songs together, sometimes where we produced together, and sometimes when I gave him full reign of the creative production and mixing, and I have loved how each combination has turned out. I would highly highly recommend him as your choice for producer/ mixer/ drummer/ friend!!
