I'm a sound designer and mixing/mastering engineer working in the vast field of electronic music. Working remotely.
I provide services of mixing, mastering, electronic music production, sound design, and audio restoration/editing.
I have a hybrid setup in my studio, using both analog and digital equipment. In my opinion good sound not always comes because of the equipment: is the method that counts the most.
My specialization is electronic music and all the genres included within this field (hip hop, techno, house, dub techno, DnB, jungle, Tekno hardcore, ambient, and many more)
Sound dynamics are very important to me, no matter which project I'm working on:
I make dynamic mixes, not "omelets".
