    Dan was awesome to work with, I had some revisions come back to me from the label for extended mixes and additional tweaks. He was patient, understanding and worked through all the changes on the songs to get them ready for release. Highly recommend him!

    Dan is awesome. I had Dan mix a song to see if he would be a good fit for my project. I was blown away by how great my song sounded after being in his hands for 24 hours. I am really looking forward to working with him in the future.

    dan was AMAZING to work with! i, despite having absolutely no mixing ability, seemed to have a lot of mixing opinions. this did not deter dan in the least. he jumped on everything and understood what i was looking for, even though i struggled to even articulate my ideas. the resulting tracks sound AWESOME, and it's an incredible difference from my previous self-mixing efforts. i would (i should say, WILL) work with dan again in a heartbeat, and i think you should too.

    I've worked with Dan before on the mixing side but never had the opportunity to have him drum on one of my tracks. Needless to say, he knocked it out of the park and made the song about a million times better with his skills. Absolute gem of a human to work with on top of that, I'll be back for sure!

    Dan Konopka's mixing and mastering expertise shines on my new single "God Loves Me for Me", beautifully enhancing the song's heartfelt message. The production quality is exceptional, with a warm, balanced, and polished sound that resonates deeply. The vocals are were clear and emotive and was very patient with me. Dan's thoughtful and precise mixing and mastering decisions have done justice to my vision. I completely recommend. 5/5

    Dan really listened to both our music and our vision for our music, and performed admirably for us. He is creative and highly collaborative in his approach, he scrupulously sets expectations for delivery and makes good on it, and he is absolutely professional in his work while being exceptionally amicable and accessible in his client interactions. We're very happy with Dan Konopka's involvement in our music and will definitely be looking forward to future projects with him.

    It’s been a privilege to work with Dan Konopka! He served as Producer/Mixer, and w/additional production from Chris Love, helped me bring an old favorite of my songs to new life! I’m so pleased w/the new version of my song “Separate Days”! Dan put me at ease right from the start. He listened, shared inspiring ideas, and communicated promptly w/what I needed to hear. He has a kind and understanding soul. I recommend Dan to all who want to take their songs to a higher level. Thank you Dan!
