    Hey guys, as the title states I'm looking for a capable engineer to mix an EP I will be looking to release in the near future. Here is a brief rundown of my personal and musical history...

    I live in West London, England and have been a passionate fan of hip hop and grime music for as long as I can remember. It has always been my lifelong dream to release an album of my own. However I have come to the conclusion that life is very very hard in almost all aspects...

    I started writing my own lyrics when I was around 13 years old (I will be 30 in september) and I used to LOVE creating my own stories. Over the years I have developed some serious mental health issues including a condition called agoraphobia (the fear of open space, leaving the house, anxiety in crowded spaces) and also anhedonia ( the inability to experience pleasure from most activities)...

    I have come to the conclusion that a career in music is off the table as it stands...I have been trying to make beats and learn to mix my own material for ages. I find the modern 'trap' and 'lofi 808' style isn't for me (most producers nowadays make that sort of material) so finding beats that are my style are almost impossible. I'd say my style is a hybrid of orchestral, rock and of course the hard electronic sound of grime and the hard hitting drums of hip hop. In the process of doing this I have almost completely stopped writing and have been focused on mixing and which to be honest is just too hard for me to get my head around...

    I was hoping that if I were to find a more qualified engineer this would take the load off of my shoulders. All I want to do is make one piece of work I can be proud of. If I can't make this happen I will have wasted almost 17 years of my life doing absolutely nothing productive. So my proposition is this...

    If I were to focus solely on writing and producing would there be anyone who would help to take on this project with me? I would like if possible for it to be a close working relationship with constructive feedback being exchanged from both ends, preferably someone with production skills also as I tend to struggle with certain aspects of beat making too (drums and bass can be a pain in the backside).

    I'd be willing to fully dedicate myself to this and would expect the same from anyone who would be kind enough to help me...If there is anybody interested please get in contact...thank you

    EDIT: I'd also be willing to send some example of the beats I have made to give you a rough idea of the sound I am trying to create

    i do have plenty mixes out but i think you should judge base on your material as every client have a certain sound they would want on their record or album. if interested pm me your email or catch me on the discord.

    @Bobs Ur Unkle @YFManagement @Mat O Here are some unfinished 'rough mixes' of instrumentals I have started just last week to give you a rough idea of the sound I'm going for...This project is in it's infant stages so any constructive critisism is welcome in reguards to arrangement...

    As I said in my OP my main passion is writing and I feel like my hand has been forced into producing through a lack of beats available in my style online... Links below

    there are potentials even tho its in its bare state.the guitar bring me back to the 90s dipset where heavy guitar were sampled with hard drums. and if you just want to be in a creative writing mode its better to work along a producer , engineer. lets do a session hit me on the PM or Discord

    Ok.
    Though i would give you quick master.:)
    Regarding 3WE6,

    The Huge kick drum is really overpowering the entire song.If you bring it down a notch and make your orchestral parts more upfront and epic,you might get a full sound.Moreover the main rhythm lacks hi hats and percussion which will augment the running feel.You can also give the electric guitars in the background a break at times or make a syncopated rhythm pattern with the same to bring about some variation.Needs some work but i think with some variation in the arrangement and a brilliant guitar solo (live) you might well have very good instrumental song on your hands.
    The above comments are in no way intended to be discouraging.This is what i truly felt listening to your song.Please do not take offence.
    Cheers.:):like:

    No offence taken whatsoever, I'm here to learn. I respect your feedback and your gesture of a quick master. However I'm still laying the groundwork at the moment. Perhaps join @YFManagement on his discord and we can all pitch in on this
