Interview with Manne Madsen
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: It must have been when I got the call from the manager of a band saying that they had chosen my mix over a very famous mix engineer because they liked my version better. I was very new and didn't know what to expect but it really helped my confidence in my work after that.

A: A project with Enrique Drageseth where we release one new single first friday every month for 10 months.
