You’re an artist looking for the right engineer / producer mixing & mastering your song?

I’ve been there too before I decided to become an engineer and producer myself years ago. For that reason I’ve been searching a long time to find the right person or studio that I felt like could really be a good fit to what I was looking for.

Wasn’t looking for the ordinary

But everything I found seemed to be just average. Altogether they all promised best quality, radio-ready sound that fit industry standards. But I wasn’t looking for standards. In any case I was looking for was someone outside that box, someone who wasn’t afraid to do extraordinary things to make my songs really stand out from the crowd.

Therefore I finally decided to become that person that I was looking for myself.

Don’t care about standards

Also I don’t care if something is right or wrong and I’m not afraid to move outside that box. Therefore I’m here to do whatever is necessary to support the vision of the song. Certainly it’s not enough to get a high quality and radio ready sound to really stand out. When everyone is doing that, no one is ever going to stand out.

Here is an example

Let’s talk about ‘Blinding Lights’ by The Weeknd, if you like it or not it’s the most streamed song ever at this time and I don’t want to be too technical here but there is some kind of widening effect going on at the synth bass that is actually the opposite of the standard-approach. Just a question: would that song be the most streamed song ever, if the mixing & mastering engineers had treated the synth bass with a standard approach?

By the way, talking about taste: I love that song. Apart from that, I have no connection to the song and I don’t want to compare myself with the producer or engineer. However I only chose this on as an example to make it clear that it can definitely lead to success moving outside the “standard framework”.

Do you find yourself here?

If you feel addressed reading this, feel free to reach out and tell me about your project. I’m selecting songs to work on only if I really like them and they fit my taste too. Therefore I make sure to not do half-hearted work on your project. If it’s a fit you’ll get 100% of my passion going into your song.

There is nothing like a template for every song. Every artist and every song is different and needs a unique and individual approach. I’m an artist myself, therefore I know what you’re looking for from the artist perspective.
