MEET YOUR MIXING & MASTERING ENGINEER

Hi, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Dacota, Grammy Award winning audio engineer based out of Atlanta, GA. 

Over the years I've been afforded the pleasure to work alongside multi-platinum artists and producers such as Childish Gambino (recording engineer on This Is America), Usher, CeeLo Green, Big K.R.I.T., Wonda Gurl, Kato On The Track and many more.

 

As your mixing and mastering engineer I allow you to focus on being an artist. You focus on the writing and the performance of the song and I vow to put the same time and energy into the mixing and mastering. Let's partner together and take your ideas from the demo stages to radio ready.
