    Before working with Kadis i was already a big fan of his former work, so my expectations were already high.

    After our experience working together for the first time I can say without a shadow of doubt that Kadis is not only a master of his craft, by also very professional as the work was amazing, the contact was consistent and the turn around time was immediate.

    I'll definitely be working with Kadis in the near future.

    I wasted so much money on trying to have this song mixed right by choosing engineers on SoundBetter with over 600 5 star reviews and a grammy nominated engineer in Dallas; needless to say, they both grossly
    Underperformed. I should have used Kadis from the outset, he bodied my mix. 💯 Bigger is not always the better. Kadis you will get referrals and repeat business from me, thank you bro,

    Amazing mix engineer. Able to take "your" sound to a new level. Has that touch that you feel on every well-mixed record. Communication is as professional as you'd expect being in person. He will provide distinct instructions that I found to be beneficial in streamlining the mixing and decision-making process. Great results take time, but if you're patient you'll get a sonic entree worthy of the asking price. I'd definitely work with this engineer again, albeit not when I'm on tight deadline.

    Kadis brought my track to life! took my idea and ran with it!, when there was something to tweak he didn't fight me on it , he wasn't too proud he was willing and able to find the vibe you are looking for.

    Maui Black is a talented mixer with a very creative ear and extreme patience! When I sent him the tracks, he picked up on the vibe and inserted some drops and mutes that are just what I was looking for. This was my first ever remote mix, took me a minute to get the hang of it. Maui hung with me, and months later we ended up with a slamming mix. THANKS MAUI!!
