Who are some top-notch, professional mix engineers for trance and psytrance? I have an album that I want some professional help on, but I can’t seem to find the right engineers for the job.
Music production and post-production, which includes mixing and mastering, requires different skills and different kind of knowledge. A good producer does not necessarily have to be a good engineer as well — it’s distinctive professions. And it is commendable that you have decided to find a professional engineer, rather than release a half-assed product.
There are plenty of good engineers around, but I can advise only the ones with whom I dealt personally, or by trusted recommendations. Here they are (not in particular order):
- Ido Ophir “Domestic”, Israel.
Drasko Radovanovic“Relativ”, Serbia (no longer does it)
- Milos Modrinic “Sideform”, Serbia.
- Barthelemy Bayona “Bart XSI”, France.
- Edward Mouftiev “Cybered”, Russia.
- Andrey Vakhnenko “Andi Vax”, Ukraine.
- Tim Schuldt, Germany.
Perhaps, dear readers wants to recommend more worthy engineers in the comment box below.
