Amazing producer! Highly recommend!
As always.... AMAZING, THANK YOU IAN!
AMAZING WORK WILL DEFINETELY BE BACK FOR ANOTHER JOB!!
Ian made me feel very comfortable all the time. He always listened on what I had to say and is a very genuine person. Thanks for everything Ian!
Good Listener. High Comprehension of what an artist, who doesn’t know technical terms, is referring to. Very Knowledgeable. Kind Cool personality. Speedy, high quality work ethic.
Always such a joy to work with Ian, he’s so talented and on top of it, I’ve been super super happy with what he’s done with my tracks, and look forward to continuing to work with him.
Ian was so lovely to work with. Right off the bat, he was super understanding of the vibe I was going for, and was willing to revise it as many times to make sure I was totally happy. I've worked with many mixing engineers/producers and have been burned a few times so I was really looking for someone who knew the vibe I was going for with the mixing style. He's super kind and understanding which honestly can be super rare in this industry. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him! :)
Really talented producer. Great collaberation and really enjoyed working with him.
Ian is a top of the line industry producer/engineer. His talents took my track to where it needed to go. Work with this guy now before he's to famous to get to work with. Can you give 6 stars?

Ian is a consummate professional who impresses me every time we work together. What an amazing combination of musicality and technical prowess, and a great guy to boot. I truly can't recommend him highly enough!
Amazing producer and writer with an unparalleled work ethic and fast turnover of product. Also just a great guy!
Ian is not only great at what he does but extremely reliable. His work ethic is bar none and he actually inspires those who he works with to always do better. Would recommend him 100 times over.
A wonderful mix engineer, masterer, and producer! He gets the job done in a timely manner and is extremely hardworking and reliable. Simply amazing!
You will probably not find a mixing engineer/producer who is more reliable, hardworking and positive as Ian Kimmel. He’s a wonderful guy to be around and is always professional, fun and supportive in the studio!
Ian is my go to when I am looking to get a record finished. When working together, Ian creates a space where all creativity is welcomed and is quickly shaped into something cohesive and amazing.
Interview with Ian Kimmel
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Extremely innovative. I know what a song requires to be commercially viable and reach a large audience, but yet I love taking a new step and finding whats different to make a record truly special.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The song belongs to the artist, not the producer. Be strong and honest with your opinion, but be willing to compromise.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My favorite music to produce is Pop music, focusing on electro-pop and signer-songwriter, although I do most of my work in Rap, Hip-Hop, and Trap music. On the total opposite end, I started off in Bluegrass and Country music. All this genre jumping makes me extremely proficient on what "good music" really is, regardless of genre.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My average workday consists of production for artists I'm developing, free-lance production, and mix and mastering work.
