    Karina was the perfect pick for my project. I was actually going to go with someone else, but they were a little slow in responding. Karina responded to my job quickly, and I'm so glad I chose her for my song. Super fast turnaround, takes instructions well, very professional and reasonably priced to boot! I would not hesitate to use her again. Karina rocks!

    I hired Karina for the second time to write a hook on an off beat loud style standout beat. I left the track muddy and envisaged a singing Lil Durk style hook to sauce it up. I knew Karina would deliver something special, she kept it simple but perfect. Thanks Karina, I will recommend you to anyone.

    Karina has a talent for taking something and really bringing it to life. She has the passion and the drive to take her as far as she can possibly go. Not only do I believe in her, but I trust her too. There's a lot of egos out there, but Karina has a knack for putting that aside and getting work done, with no strings attached. As time goes on, I'm sure it will be harder and harder to book sessions, because she is on the way to becoming a world renowned engineer. GRAMMYS IN YOUR FUTURE!

    With almost 10yrs in the industry, Karina is by far one of the most talented and versatile artist/engineers i've worked with. When it comes to songwriting, her ability to tap into the essence of the music with her words is unmatched. As an engineer, i've witnessed her bring many artists visions to life, as well as enhancing them with her own artistic slant. She is very personable and a pleasure to work with. Love working with her every time!

    I’ve worked with Karina for 5 years now. The experience we’ve shared together has been amazing! I have trusted her with many of my clients locally and nationally. Karina has amazing energy and her ability to relate with artist in different genres is one of a kind. If you’re looking for a songwriter that is versatile, current yet timeless Karina is the one for you.

    Karina is dedicated to her passion. I had the chance to interview her and she is passionate about what she does. She is always working and helping those around her. Every time I see her she is working with another client producing high quality work. She is an artist, engineer, writer and producer that you would want to work with or have on your team. She is very valuable and takes her work very seriously.

Interview with OTX Collective

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: OTX is the joining of forces between two powerhouse studios in the Bay Area: Studio X in Oakland, and OTW in Fremont. Both studios have multiple sub-rooms & production suites fully equipped with industry standard mics & hardware. Our primary focus is to provide a comfortable and inspiring environment that artists can feed off of when in sessions.

  3. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  4. A: I take the vision you have for your track and not only bring your idea to life but will enhance it. I'm a big vocal comp advocate so during recording if I feel you could perform a stronger take I will suggest that you do so. If I'm rapping or singing I will bring the emotion and the character appropriate for the track we're working on.

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  6. A: Recording: I work as quick as my client is willing to go. I believe in a quick but efficient recording process. I am quick with shortcuts and will give feedback when necessary so we can get the best recording possible. Mixing: After considering any notes or reference mixes you've provided, I will playback the track a few times and find a vision for your track. Then I get to leveling and processing.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. A: I'm very inspired by production professionals Kuk Harrell (recording engineer/vocal producer for Rihanna, Jessie J, etc), Dave Pensado (engineering legend), Marcella Araica (mixing engineer) and OVO 40. Rihanna, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Missy Elliot, Rae Sremmend and Drake.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: Recording, vocal production for rappers and Trap Soul R&B singers, mixing, and songwriting.
