Audio has been my passion for over 15 years and I am known for featuring new artists on my radio show and podcast, Jaytech Music.

As an artist I have worked on hundreds of records, including the creation of two US iTunes #1 dance albums (Anjunadeep 02 & 03) and a Beatport Trance #1 and numerous records in the Top Ten. I'm here to help you get the most out of your music and can also assist with industry advice and sending tracks to labels.

    James did an AMAZING job with mastering my track. I literally cannot wait to send him my next song to get mix and mastered. The services he provides (along with all the tutorials he has out there) is literally gold. You wont regret using him for your next song guaranteed

    James took my idea and mixed it into the masterpiece it was meant to be. He quickly got back to me with 3 revisions listening to my feedback and turned it into something I probably couldn't have. I am so hype to get it mastered and start sending it out to labels. His personal touches also to the mix were greatly appreciated. You wont regret using Jason, an anjuna legend for your next song

    Absolute Legend. The advice Jaytech has given me has completely reshaped the way I produce and think about not only mixing and writing music but how I plan to perform and brand it as well. I truly could not recommend him enough.

    James (Jaytech) was fantastic. He had really useful and direct advice about what I needed to try and work on to move forward seamlessly and immediately understood where I was at in my music career and what information would help best for me to grow with his mentorship. I will absolutely be continuing with his guidance and recommend others do the same, as he truly is a wealth of knowledge.

    Excellent teacher & mentor - I had a great session with Jay and will come back to him for sure - he has also been kinda enough to answer external questions aside from the hour session. I am looking forward to implementing the ideas he's given me to improve and to see further success in my work. Thanks Jay! xx

    Excellent insight and critique of my records. The suggested revisions really made the songs shine.

Interview with Jaytech | James Cayzer

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

  2. A: Clients are requested to send all parts with EQ and compression removed, spatial effects can be left on if desired. My first step is to identify which musical elements shine through the most, and what the artist is aiming to convey with their music and mix. A rough mix from the artist is kept in the project at all times. From there, I analyse what aspects of the record can be emphasized to make it really shine. To finish, masters are amplified to industry standards and tested again similar tracks to check things like balance in the frequency spectrum.

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

  4. A: I began with a classical background in piano, which I have played since the age of six, and released my first vinyl record in 2001, when I was 16. I began studying at the Canberra School of Music in Australia before discontinuing when my electronic career started taking off. After relocating to the UK, I spent three years touring the world with trance stars Above & Beyond and worked as a studio engineer for their Anjunabeats record label in London. Now located in Phoenix, I still work with Anjunabeats from time to time and also release music on my own label, Positronic.

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

  6. A: I really enjoy seeing the diverse range of ways people put their tracks together, and mixing music for others helps me with my own music as well.

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

  8. A: There are no wrong answers when it comes to requests or desires for approach to your mix - it is your music and your message. A good mix engineer will adapt to their clients' wishes and will happily make any changes required, so do not be afraid to ask.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Forward-thinking melodic electronic music.

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

  12. A: Hans Zimmer - one of the great composers of our time, and he has an amazing studio!

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

  14. A: If you can use as little EQ as possible during the creation process, you'll place more emphasis on choosing the right sounds and fitting things together more organically, allowing for a more natural-sounding mixdown later on.

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

  16. A: My main love is electronic music, namely progressive house and trance. I have also worked with acoustic, experimental and pop music, as well as music for advertising.

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

  18. A: Having spent the last decade touring globally, I've been able to experience first-hand how tracks translate between small systems (such as laptops and iPod earbuds) to large festival scenarios with 10,000+ people.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: I regularly help artists hone in on the best aspects of their sound that might often be overlooked by others, and bring them forward so that they may be better presented to the world.

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

  22. A: I provide full stereo mixdowns of tracks with option of club and radio-ready mastering.
