History & Expertise
Fanu has been making and listening to music for 30 years, producing and mixing his rich catalogue of music spanning hundreds of songs. This slowly lead in him becoming an expert in mixing and mastering that understands the music: how it is supposed to sound and how to fix it when needed.
All genres are accepted – expertise being in rhythm-based electronic music (bass music, house, hip hop, D&B, techno, trap, etc).
It is guaranteed your song will come out the strongest it can be, and it will stand up to commercial songs and competition.
Your song will be polished up to meet commercial standards with state-of-the-art tools and professional audio understanding.
Many songs by aspiring producers mastered by Fanu have been signed right away to record labels impressed with the end result. Several labels trust their music with Fanu’s treatment prior to release.
Client satisfaction is guaranteed – or there will be no charge (certain rules apply: contact for more info).
Hundreds of songs are handled every year, and unhappy clients are extremely rare.
Monitoring is done using both Audeze LCD-X headphones that rank among the best headphones in the world – as well as with room-calibrated, full-range Genelec 8350 monitors in a treated studio room. Songs are treated against and compared to strong commercial references (which can be provided by the client).
Mastering is done using the best modern tools available, many of them analog – e.g., full Universal Audio range, Slate Digital, Acustica Audio, Izotope, and other highly regarded analog tools.
Presets are never used – every case is 100% human operated and tailored from start to finish.

If you want to go ahead and initiate the process and ensure booking (songs are processed in the received order):
For mastering: Send a link to an uploaded .wav/.aiff file with no limiting on the master. 24-bit, 44.1KHz is preferred, but this can be based on your preference.
For mixing: Send a link to uploaded tracks (24-bit, 44.1KHz or higher). Wetransfer is preferred for file transfers – do not use Google Drive unless all is zipped up. Name all tracks in a relevant, informative fashion.
Leave some headroom – any headroom is fine as long as peaks are not hitting zero (file will be auto-leveled in the chain to provide headroom).
