  4. A: Mainly artists and producer who create a unique sound and identity such as Solomun and Salvatore Ganacci.

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

  6. A: It's hard to pick one but I do feel proud when I get a song to -6 LUFS with no clipping and still plenty of dynamic range. The beauty of mixing is how immediate the results are, it's the best feeling.

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

  8. A: Upcoming signed release 'Next to Me' and mixes for my clients & Twitch subscribers.

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

  10. A: I worked with an amazing singer Clementine for an upcoming release. She was excellent

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: Ah the never ending debate. Both have advantages it's just about knowing where to apply them. It's not the tools but the tradesperson that makes the most difference.

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

  14. A: Communication is key and you'll be walked through the whole process step by step if needed.

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

  16. A: I was born to do this, it's 100% me and I appreciate every aspect of it.

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

  18. A: Usually around the process and if they can trust my work. I'm always judged on my results and go above and beyond to overdeliver.

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

  20. A: None really my workflow is completely transparent and hundreds of people enjoy seeing my workflow live.

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

  22. A: During the initial chat I need to fully understand intention and vision for the client's work to enhance their sound. Understanding their main routes to market is critical too so I can make the correct decisions for their sound to be heard best whether it's live, streamed, or on a physical format.

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

  24. A: You can see what I'm about by chatting with me live during my Twitch streams 6 days a week

  26. A: I'd probably ditch the music gear in exchange for a raft, food, a tent and stuff to survive haha

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

  28. A: I've been professionally DJ'ing since the early 2000's. Playing internationally alongside big name artists and networking with amazing producers first got me into Ableton in 2008.

  29. Q: How would you describe your style?
