Vienna born, L.A based! With knowledge in a vast range of musical genres and my ability to work in a friendly and professional environment, I have been lucky enough to be involved with talented and inspiring artists. As a bass player, producer, DJ I feel music beyond the technicalities of engineering. It has to groove, it has to vibe!
Mixes can be tailored to many things. Transparent, warm, thick, wide, Intimate, booty shaking or fresh in your face. These are creative choices, and discussing those with clients in advance is a key part of the process. No matter what the project, I give each 100% of my energy to help artists deliver the best possible sound while respecting their work. I starts with a conversation to make sure I understand their vision.
Located at the heart of the music industry in Los Angeles, California I am easily reachable.
I'm new on Soundbetter, and excited to be working here as well. Please let me know if you have any questions and let me know what I can do for you.
