Freelance production studio and label from Ukraine based in Berlin looking to work with new talents in Indie, Alt-Rock, Jazz or creative Electronic genres. Also a skilled guitarist with over 15 years of jazz training as well as love for rock-n-roll and writing.
As a trained musician I know what an artist is looking for in audio services. I'm aiming to help you get your production sounding as good as it can and make sure it sits decently next to other tracks on the playlist.
With clear communication and mixing/mastering references I'll be able to bring the song in the direction you choose and treat it appropriately to the style.
I mostly have experience mixing bands with drums and various combination of instruments in styles from loud rock to acoustic jazz, both vocal and instrumental. But I have done purely electronic projects, fairly experimental ones too, so I'm pretty open and excited to explore different genres.
If you have an EP or album to mix, contact me for the possibility of a bundle or customised offer!
Hit me up and let's talk about what you need to get done!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
5 ReviewsEndorse Dnipro & Kruchi
Really enjoyed working with Daniil. He has good catalog of techniques and helped me unblock a lot of issues in my mix.
He's also very happy to share his knowledge and answer questions. Would definitely recommend!
Danil mixed two of my albums. Each time it was a superb job. Always a pleasure working with him!
Danil’s mixes are crystal clear and clean yet they have a crispy and crunchy elements. I enjoyed working with him on some of my solo singles as well as other band’s albums that I am a member of. Great engineer, easy to work with
Danil mixed a couple of my tracks. He has his vision to the future of industry. world class mixer. I highly recommend
Danil mixed and produced my album; he gave shape to each song and really helped the whole sound of the album to come out! Thank you again :)
Interview with Dnipro & Kruchi
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Started an extremely DIY record label, lining up some releases
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it makes sense, analog because I'm a guitar player
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: After I work on your music it'll sound better than before (or you get the money back)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: When I get to work on a song I like, I like to think that no one will ever listen to it as hard as I do while putting it together.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How do you describe your music, do you have a roughmix/demo, what are your references
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Macbook, UAD Apollo, Epiphone Casino, Fender Blues Jr. and an SM57 (provided there's electrical power there)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Mixing and producing for about five years, playing for money since 2006
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Josh Homme because he makes cliche bits sound original and is still alive
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: OCD-like behaviour is not the same as perfectionism.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Music that relies a bit more on human performance and some creative randomness
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm a musician first of all and I find that the mixes work best when I manage to follow my "player's" intuition and experience.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to understand exactly how the client hears the song we're working on and adapt the way I hear it myself. Then I can hopefully figure out the exact working procedure that gets me there. I like bringing out excitement and nuance of the performance with automation after all the sounds are in place already.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: After discussing the project with the client and getting the tracks I prep and get familiar with the session and dial it into my mix template. The mixing phase then takes a few hours depending on the number of tracks and challenges. When the first mix is done I call it a day and wait for the feedback from the artist. Within a small number of revisions the project is usually done.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a reasonably small acoustically treated mixing room where I'm also able to track almost anything (except drums or acoustic piano). I'm recording and playing back through quality UAD and Audient interfaces and mixing in the box in Logic using industry standard plugins.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: To name one I'm a big Queens of the Stone Age fan. Also a fan of Daniel Lanois' and anything mixed by Michael Brauer.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing as well as producing and recording songs
