Mixing Engineer / Producer

CHARLY SEVEN on SoundBetter

Sound Engineer with a specialisation in Music Production, Arrangement, Mixing and Mastering.

I'm CHARLY SEVEN, formally known as Charl Aspeling, a Cape Town born Sound Engineer & Producer. My primary offering is remote mixing and mastering, composition and arrangement, and - if you've got the right song - I might even lay down some vocals (see Spotify: CHARLY SEVEN).

In 2021, I produced a 13-track mixtape called 'Destiny' for local rapper PsynapsesSTB, it went on to win a local award and was crowned mixtape of the year. Aside to that, I have a steady stream of clients in my local scene, and pushing hard to break in to the international scene, which is why I'm here.

Im ready to work, and I know what Im doing, and I work fast.

Terms Of Service

I generally look to wrap-up a project within 3 revisions, but there is always space in my diary for that hit song. Typically looking at a 24-28hour turnaround on 'most' projects.
