This e-book presents a complete methodology of mixing, from preparation to delivery, covering the technical, artistic and personal sides of the mixing process. Written by Marc Mozart, award-winning mix engineer, music producer and director of the digital music and social media agency Mozart & Friends. He has worked with a diverse range of artists such as Lil Wayne, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Queensryche, Bob Marley, Sly Stone and many more. Growing up in a musical family, Marc has been recording and mixing since childhood, when he was cutting reel-to-reel tape with a razor-blade. His first major breakthrough was in Frankfurt during the rise of German techno and Eurodance music in the early ‘90s. He then spent time in New York, where he teamed up with various producers from P. Diddy’s Bad Boy camp, as well as Izzy Zivkovic, who later on managed Kanye West.
Since the 2000s, together with the Mozart & Friends’ team of music producers and songwriters, he has produced, written and remixed more than 70 charting bestsellers around the world, including number-one singles and albums receiving multiple gold/platinum awards. In his home country of Germany, he’s also sold millions of records as a writer, producer and mixer for gold and platinum-selling pop acts Bro’Sis, Monrose, No Angels, Jimi Blue, Cinema Bizarre, and more. Nowadays, Marc works in a high-end hybrid recording studio in Frankfurt, based around the famous SSL 4000 G-Series mixing console.
