-Master sounds hot! (Pete Tong)
-Just got back from NYC. When I was up there, I showed a couple producers and engineers your Wavelenghts mix and master, and they were blown away!  On his monitors at his studio, the track sounded DIVINE!

-A little update after the last tune you mastered for me. I received very nice feedback from the ones like Technimatic, Makoto, Utah Jazz, BCee on this tune.
-It’s getting a release. I’m really glad I found out about your service, my music is getting picked up by a lot of big names in the scene since you’re helping me out with mixing and mastering
-Not gonna lie. The mastering you did for me was amazing and it made my track (released under different alias) end up on a label and for sale for the first time for me. The label owner asked for the unmastered version, but decided to keep yours and declared that you did a good work. I just got a mail a few weeks back declaring how much money I can currently collect.
-Janne!!! Thank you so much! Dude!!! My tunes knocked a bunch of art of the walls at the venue last night! Sounded great and everyone complimented me on the ridiculous sub bass! Thanks a million for the mastering and the quick turn around 🙂 now I just have to send these things out to some heads and see if I can get em put out!
-I’m absolutely blown away by what you have done to the track – THANK YOU! I’ve listened to it at home through my studio monitors and it sounds perfect so no alterations required! Amazed by how you have made the guitars sound – they have a real ring to them now which is what I was looking to acheive. The sub is ridiculous (in a good way!) it had the floor shaking.
-Personally I think you’ve outdone yourself. The tunes sound like one story, it has a phat round touch and it should cause damage on the floor.
-I had a listen to both on a few different set ups and they sound great – cheers! 100% happy with the first song – your version sounds more balanced and present, and the kick feels like it hits better, great work, thanks! The second one improved significantly – I can see how mine felt too muted and you’ve brought everything out much more nicely, and your kick feels tighter!

-This is exactly what I was looking for!
It sounds fit as f* on the bigger soundsystem we have available at our little hideout. Terrific job!
-Label was impressed with the master and will use that one!
-Many thanks man, my EP is going to sound much better now and I feel like it’s worth making music again because I can get the engineering to an acceptable level. Feeling optimistic about getting noticed by bigger labels. 
-Just had a listen and this is sounding a lot better! The high end ‘rings’ less and sounds more crisp. The low end seems more controlled and the kicks seem to punch through a bit better. Overall loudness / dynamics are good too, nice! What did you do to it?
-Very impressed with the quality of Fanu/Janne’s mastering service – definitely added an extra level of power and definition to the track I sent him. He was also very helpful with tips on how to improve my mixes in future. Highly recommended.
-Fanu’s advice is excellent, extremely helpful. It’s the most detailed feedback I’ve ever had.
-Shout out to FanuJanne for the quality mastering treatment on my tune called ”Acid Hop”! Simply FATTER!
-Thanks for the masters, they really improved things. Can’t beat that analogue sound. Tighter low end, polished highs and gelled together nicely. Big up!
-Thanks for your mastering service and mixing tips! Just had a response from a label, debut release on Sept 28th!
-Incredible work. I’m really interested in what you did to it.
-I’ve had a very good experience with Fanu’s mastering service over the last week. I made an electro remix track which is not the typical music Fanu works with. Nevertheless, he delivered a very satisfying master.
It was a very valuable experience for me to have my track mastered by him, because his first mastered versions of my track revealed some sketchy parts in my mix down that I had not yet heard myself. It took me a few tries to get the mixdown right and Fanu was very cooperative in the process, sending me different masters with minor changes until we reached the final result. He his always very fast and professional with his responses. Highly recommended. Thanks man!
-Thanks very much for the work so far, the tunes are definitely sounding more solid with your efforts and I am learning based on your suggestions.
-Your input on our tunes a year or two ago was very helpful, and i’d recommend you for sure. We were going to send you some more stuff recently but then it all got signed haha.
