Services


​​​​
 I am offering my production, recording and mixing services to those are who are looking for an experienced, trusted pair of ears who can work on achieving clarity, depth and loudness (without sacrificing dynamic range!). I am very flexible and can offer quick turnarounds, a wide variety of options to fit all budgets, and even the ability to mix files sent via the web (dropbox/wetransfer etc). I am always up for a challenge so throw me what you've got and I'll do my thing!

I am based at  Old Street Studios in the heart of London. Founded by Jerry Kandiah who is a musician/producer/engineer who started his career as an engineer to Andy Gill (Gang Of Four, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jesus Lizard, R.E.M, Can….) where he is most known for his work recording albums for Killing Joke and The Futureheads. Old Street Studios plays host to a load of fantastic analogue and digital equipment including PMC monitoring, a TL Audio M4 32 channel tube console and tons of vintage compressors and EQs. For recording, mixing and mastering sessions at Old Street Studios, be sure to get in contact for a bespoke quote as below prices are just guidelines.

For online-based jobs - after we have discussed overall mix/mastering notes, guidelines and goals for me to work towards (I want to make sure I am 100% clued in on any specifics/quirks I should know about in your tracks), your isolated instrument/track files will be sent directly to me via services such as dropbox, wetransfer or google drive and I can begin the process.  I will perform the editing and mix using my own private system and setup as well as my selection of analogue outboard gear, plugins and software. A perfect option for those based further away, overseas or simply prefer to let me finish off the job independently.


Get in contact today for a bespoke quote. I work with all budgets!
