"Chris has recently mastered my home produced album. Hes made the mixes I did shine and has managed to achieve a uniform tone to the album from a bunch of mixes which were completed over 3 years with a wide tonal difference. Spot on and very impressive turn around time. The album is now holding its own on spotify etc . Highly recommended, knows what he is doing." 49 Fables
