I can turn your pop, indie and electronic ideas into finished, radio ready songs! (Check out my Demo Reel!)
I am a laid back individual with a rabid musical curiosity and keen sense of sonic aesthetics- both of which I am eager to put to use in helping you realize your musical vision. If I had to assess my self, I would say my standout production abilities are melody and sound design. Helping others transform their musical ore from its natural state to sonic gold is what I’m all about!
Services I offer:
-Production. I'll take your song idea from an idea to a full-scale production. I can play most instruments.
-Mixing. I am an engineer who will mix through the lens of a musician. I also use analog summing which means your mixes will have width, depth and life!
-Synthesizer. I can recreate most sounds by ear or add that special touch your track needs to make it the last10% of the way there instrumentally.
-We call or chat to get an overview of what the project entails, weather you have a soft or hard deadline
-You send me the required files to start the project
- I do my thing by completing your thing (including the necessary revisions) and then send you forth a happy customer!
If you're ready to take your music to the next level, let's get in touch and get rolling!

Jophes was awesome - start to finish. Really got the sound I was looking for and listened to my reference tracks. Had great ideas for the whole production, including vocal harmonies. I didn't think the track could sound this good - better than I could've hoped for. Definitely coming back to this producer! A true professional.

Really enjoyed working with Joseph, excellent song and production which was a joy to play over. Detailed notes to work to and great communication. Hope to work together again!
Another great job by Joseph!
Joseph is an amazing guy to work with! Not only is he creative, hardworking and patient, but you can tell he is very passionate about all things audio, which as a result means he is very open and friendly to communicate with. Looking forward to working with Joseph again. Strongly recommend hiring him.
Joseph was clear with his changes and workflow in an element of music creation I am least experienced in (mastering a produced and mixed track). He was easy to work with, receptive to feedback, and the final product was bolstered far past the original mix I sent him. Overall a fantastic job and would highly recommend working with him if you need mastering done!
If I could rate him 10 stars I would, fast, responsible, and creative! Love working with Joseph!
Amazing, talented, and professional. Would recommenced Jophes to anyone!

Joseph was wonderful!
Joseph was very good to work with. He was able to create the vision I had in mind. He really did a fanatic job with everything. Couldn't be more happy with everything!
Joseph did a great job treating some synth parts for me. Definitely talented and pro! I will work with him again for sure.
blown away. amazing its art in melody. perfection
Joseph has an awesome ear for indie pop and staggering synth skills. He's talented and professional, a good communicator and hard worker. His sound selection is on point and really brings tracks to life. I highly recommend him!
Swoop this kid up while you can, because he's going places. Joseph is a synth mastermind, as well as a great producer, mix engineer, and multi-instrumentalists. He has great taste and is well attuned to what is happening now in music and where it is going. Hire him if you want your music to sound hip and relevant while tipping a proper nod to a rich history of great music. He's also known to drop a searing dad-joke here and there.
Joseph's work on a track of mine was incredible. I love 80's music, and he was able to enhance my production and take it to the next level. I'm so grateful to have worked with Joseph and will surely be working with him again in the future!
Joseph is incredibly talented and works quickly to create amazing tracks. Lovely to work with and awesome to be in the studio with as well! Highly recommend his services.
Joseph is by far the best synth-man I know. He has an insanely good ear for filling an entire mix perfectly with the right sound, EQ'ing and mastering to perfection, and riddling it with catchy synth lines, and is easily one of the best, most trusted producers and musicians I've had the honor of working with. If you get the chance to work with him you will get a pro experience and a potential hit.
Joseph is a synth mastermind! He has awesome keyboard and production skills. I can't recommend him enough. I discovered his music online and was hooked instantly. Try him out for your songs!
