    I was nervous when I relistened to the file I sent to Nate but buddy was able to turn something raw and give it a little bit more of a pristine sound, all within a timely fashion too. Don't hesitate to hit him up!

  14. Review by Andrew L.

    This guy is the shit. I sent him a dry vocal recorded in a room with zero sound treatment, and gave him damn near nothing to work with. Within 1 revision he perfectly encapsulated my vision. If you need a good hip hop mix, LOOK NO FURTHER!

  15. Review by 780.MASOCHIST

    Incredibly talented and willing to go the extra mile to ensure everything is sounding 100%.

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

  4. A: I mixed and mastered Buckwild's album "Fully Loaded". I got to mix some of my favorite artists including Raekwon, Meyhem Lauren, and Chuck Strangers which was very cool.

  6. A: My own music, a few SoundBetter artists, and some secret projects.

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

  10. A: I'll do my best and help you find the sound you're looking for. It's worked so far haha.

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

  12. A: It is a great balance. The technicality aspect with procedural and scientific challenges. Also the creative aspect with artistic challenges.

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

  14. A: Can I work with their budget and their timeline? and I usually can.

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

  28. A: Kendrick Lamar because he is very creative and must be one of a kind to work with in the studio.

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

  30. A: Do what feels right, there's a lot of imitation and over saturation in the music industry, it'll feel the best and be the easiest to make/do what you want to do.

  32. A: hip hop: primarily Boom bap, Underground and sample based styles.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

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

  36. A: I bring years of technical training, honed in a high stress, high level pro studio environment combined with over a decade of production experience. The result is a professional, organized and experienced execution with a creative, specialized, and passionate creative outlook.

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

  38. A: I think it is very important to be organized and it is an essential part of my workflow. I spend a lot of time organizing and prepping my mix sessions before I even get started with processing. I have a very developed template that I primarily build off of that can get me consistent results at a fast speed without sacrificing quality. It has also helped me develop "my sound".

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My home studio is a simple setup yet it is very effective. It is an acoustically treated "office" with some furniture my desk and a spare desk. My desk has my Avantone Mixcubes and Focal Alpha 80s. I use these in combination with Sennheiser HD650s to do the majority of my monitoring. I have an Apollo Twin quad core with UAD ultimate, Fabfilter everything bundle, Waves Mercury, Soundtoys 5, Valhalla All, and more. I use Protools 2019, Ableton Live, and occasionally Logic Pro X. I know my equipment very well and am able to continuously achieve the sound I'm looking for. In some situations I will work at larger Pro Studios in NYC primarily Downtown Music Studios. Downtown has amazing rooms and extensive gear lists that can be viewed on their website.

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

  42. A: I'm inspired by many people from all mediums of art. In regards to music, MixedByAli and Eddie Sancho inspire my mixing, Alchemist and RZA inspire my production, and Black Thought and Kendrick Lamar inspire my overall creativity/artistry.

  44. A: In the past I was primarily recording hip hop, and pop vocals in a pro studio setting. Lately I have been mixing numerous styles from my home studio, project studio, and pro studio depending on the budget.
