36 Reviews - 6 Repeat ClientsEndorse Deon Custom
This is the 6th project I’ve used Deon for and I’m just as satisfied as I was with the previous 5. I will continue to use Deon for all of my mixing/mastering needs. I highly recommend his services and expertise.
Deon did an awesome job mixing/mastering all the tracks on my EP and I plan on using him again for my future projects.
Deon was very responsive, patient and thorough. He also provided a great result. I wouldn't hesitate to ask him to mix/master for me again in the future.
I ended up having Deon mix/master the entire EP that I’ll be releasing soon. He’s completed 3/4 of the songs so far ( he’s working on the final song), and I am just as satisfied with his work as I was when I first worked with him. My EP is a multi-genre project and Deon has nailed every song so far. He has proven to me that not only is he comfortable mixing/mastering multiple genres, but he is consistent in putting together top-notch work. He will continue to be my go-to person for all my needs.
Deon was super patient with me and my tiny tweaks. Highly recommend. Also gave me multiple masters for playing live and for streaming platforms.
A very easy to work with and talented mixing engineer! Highly recommend!
Deon was incredible to work with. He asked questions and made sure he had all the info he needed before he started the project. Then on our first revision of the Mix he absolutely nailed it; brought out parts of my own song I didn't even really know were there. I'm excited to work with this dude again
I am a returning client that will continue to come back to Deon for my mixing/mastering needs. Once again, I am very pleased with his work. Deon has proven to me that he is very good with various genres, as my most recent track fell into the more acoustic/rock genre (while my first track was very electronically influenced), and yet Deon still nailed it. The song as a whole turned out great and I will continue to highly recommend him for all your mixing/mastering needs.
Incredibly professional and knows what sounds great when mixing. I will definitely be using this service again!
Very nice to work with. Friendly and has a great ear!
Deon was a joy to work with. Very easy to communicate with, understood what it was that I was looking for, and delivered great results.
Deon works well under pressure! I had a last minute request and he was able to meet the deadline for me with awesome results. He is very communicative and easy to work with, I definitely recommend you check him out!
Great ear and awesome person with a lot of patience. Thanks Deon!
Deon is awesome. He is extremely professional and the quality of his work is top notch. He has an incredible ear for mixing/mastering and really knows how to bring your music to life. He is also very responsive, has a quick turnaround time, and will work with you until you are completely satisfied with every element of your track. I would highly recommend him and I don’t plan on going to anyone else for my mixing/mastering needs.
Deon was timely, understood what we were going for, and provided a great master.
Excellent work and very good communication! Final product was delivered on time and was exceptionally high quality!
Perfect result. Satisfied for mastering :)
Just thanks !
Delivered an excellent master!
High quality master and was responsive to revisions & changes. Would definitely work with Deon again.
Poor communication about when I could expect my track back and even when an ETA was given it would still be late. Ended up taking over a month when the job requested a reasonable turnaround time. If you have an unlimited amount of time it might be worth it but working in the industry I would rather pay more for clear expectations.
Interview with Deon Custom
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Probably the remix I did for Porter Robinson. If I listen back to it I'm not even proud of the remix itself, but more the fact that he asked me haha!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm going to release a single on bitbird on the 22nd of June. After that there's a little EP on it's way :)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think with electronic music artists in general is that they have no musical knowledge or background. Which often they have!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to communicate as clearly as possible with me. Don't be afraid to give honest feedback. Try to deliver the stems somewhat organized.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Don't think I would even need 5 things... My desktop PC (including screen and keyboard/mouse if that counts), monitor speakers, an external soundcard and a midi keyboard. Everything besides that is just a bonus pretty much.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I think I've been doing this for about 10 years now. It started off as a joke pretty much just to see how I could manipulate audio without even having the intention of making music. Eventually I started listening to sample based hiphop such as 9th Wonder and J Dilla. That got me into making that kind of stuff as well. From there on it got more electronic eventually and I got accepted to a music college. From there on things gradually got more serious I guess.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Chaotic but soothing I think? (for my own music at least)
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There are so many on my list. A few that cross my mind right now: Jai Paul, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Joker, Flying Lotus, Cid Rim. 123Mrk.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For mixing it definitely starts off by organizing things. I like the work really well organized so I can easily find things and don't get frustrated by doing so. After that it's pretty random really. I think I usually start off with the drums and mix everything around that!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: - Try to mix in mono every now and then. - Try to fix as much as possible in the mixing, and as little as possible in the mastering.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Anything electronic pretty much! Usually it's dance related but I really enjoy making ambient soundscapes as well.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it gives me more control over everything and it offers more weird possibilities in my opinion. Analog is also cool but it's kind of overrated if you ask me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will try my very best to get the best result possible for them and hopefully leave them very satisfied.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Hudson Mohawke, 123Mrk, Flying Lotus, Rustie, Cashmere Cat, Lido, Cid Rim, Noisia, Lone, Iglooghost, Joker, Awe, Electric Mantis, Porter Robinson and lots more.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The feeling of making things right. I feel really satisfied if I can make imperfect things ''perfect'' (to my opinion of course).
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: To send reference tracks!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think for my own music it's probably the layering and sound design. But that also goes a bit for the mixing I guess!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to not only mix in a technical way, but also in a creative way.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's all pretty much in the box. I have a midi keyboard and just a lot of software where I do everything with. I used to have some hardware but I found myself rarely using it so I got rid of it.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering.
