Matt Rifino on SoundBetter

Hi I'm Matt. I love mixing music. 25+ Years experience, 5x Emmy Awards. Credits include Kelly Clarkson, Harry Styles, Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow, Fleetwood Mac, Lenny Kravitz, Brandi Carlile, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Lionel Ritchie, Carrie Underwood, Shawn Mendes, Sara Bariellis, One Republic, Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, The Revivalists, Sting

I offer mixing services (attended or unattended) out of my personal mix room at the legendary Barbershop Studios on beautiful Lake Hopatcong, NJ. My studio is loaded with analog toys setup with a digital mindset for fast and easy recalls. In my opinion it's not about the gear it's about the music. My goal is to never have to think technically only feel things musically. The gear is just a tool to help pull out every last ounce of magic in the recording. Sometimes that means doing a lot to the tracks to bring it out and sometimes it's knowing to do doing very little or nothing because the recording/performance already feels great.

In my 25 years experience I have fortunate to work in so many different genres. I am always trying to keep the mix honest to the music while imparting a vibe, impact, and presence that delivers the artist's emotions to the listener's ears. I'd love to help make your next Album, Single, or EP.
