Bay Area audio engineer specializing in mixing, mastering, and music production, focusing primarily on rock, heavy rock, and alternative music.
My name is Mojo and I produce and mix rock, heavy rock and alternative music. I work out of my own studio in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I love working with emerging bands to help them compete with more established bands.
As a longtime independent musician myself, I understand the needs and struggles of up-and-coming artists, and how important it is to bring your vision to life. My working style is a partnership and a stewardship, and I care as much about the success of your songs as you do.
Mixing is a complex process with a steep learning curve. Let me do the heavy lifting so you can get back to the creative process of making the music you love.

Interview with Matt Denton (Mojo)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes - one of my favorite people on the planet is an amazing producer out of Texas - Alex Winters who is a multitalented musician, singer, and songwriter, and just a pleasure to work with.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that my clients will be completely satisfied by the professional result.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask for one or two examples of songs by other artists that have the vibe and sonic quality they're looking for. I also always want to know what the end goal is for the song or album - CD, streaming, vinyl, or all of the above.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was a self produced indie musician myself for a decade, often finding myself mixing and doing mix evaluations for friends and collaborators before I started taking on paid work and continuing to level up my process.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: 90s retro with a modern feel. I love the warmth and dynamic range of 90s productions and work to bring that into the modern streaming era with the depth and punch of today's productions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I like to keep a Waves L2 limiter on my 2-bus so I can quickly see what a mix will sound like at master level. Some things sound significantly different loud than at normal listening levels.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I lean towards producing heavy and hard rock as that's what I love listening to, but I've mixed a fair amount of alternative, indie and Americana as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is being able to work with a musician or band to truly understand what they're looking for out of a mix. I truly care as much as they do about making the music the best it can be.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Strong mixing and mastering skills, but also production skills. As someone who has been producing music for over a decade, if needed I can make arrangement or production level suggestions or even assist with songwriting.
