Hey K-Knight, your production sounds so solid! Could you mix/master my track for me, pretty please?
Firstly, I should inform you that as I am still away from my home in Perth, Australia, I currently only have access to a limited subset of my setup (see the Bio page for more information) here in Japan. Also, aside from the DJ-grade headphones I took with me, I currently only have a pair of Consumer-grade Logitech speakers to work with in a room of a share house in Japan.
However, that is not to say that it is impossible. I should note that I have had some experience in mixing and mastering tracks by other artists, not to mention genres beyond what I usually write (training on such was included in my university course back at ECU), so I believe I will be able to help you out in one way or another. I do still have a computer, internet, Propellerhead Reason, and some headphones (as I mentioned earlier), so wherever you may be in the world, as long as you have decent internet I think I can do do you proud.
