Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Elijah Kuttikhen and I’m the mixing/mastering engineer and owner of “EKmixmaster“ studio. I’ll be happy to put my heart, soul and 15 years of experience into bringing your music to life.
If you are looking for a professional audio engineer to polish your upcoming project who will not only be able to produce your song; but also tackle your mixes as another stage of the creative process - you have come to the right place!
After I graduated from Kharkiv College of Music and Arts with honors in 2006, I started my career as an intern at “Dawn Records” studio in Kiev. I was really lucky to work in a team comprising of the best mixing and mastering engineers in town.
Years later when I was working as a live show audio engineer, I simultaneously stumbled upon and delve into the world of music production and studio technologies. Being a real knowledge junkie myself, I took any opportunity to acquire knowledge about mixing skills and would attend different workshops of sound mixing techniques in order to hone my craft. By that time I worked as a major audio engineer assistant.
In 2009 I was lucky enough to have met Jon Berntsen, a mentor who soon became a friend of mine. I was tasked with Mastering the catalogue for his House/Chill label “Smash Fabric Records” - it was a great experience for me.
Pro Tools, Ableton Live , Reaper, Melodyne expert. Professionally skilled at audio comping, pitch correction, timing correction, quantization, noise suppression.
Since 2010, I have mastered about 75 dance and R&B songs for Barbara Douglas and her label “Silk Records” in New York including one of her most popular records – a remake of the Chaka Khan classic “I Know You, I Love You”.
Another fantastic chapter in my life was my collaboration with Golden Star LLC label (Visalisa, California). The pop song “Nowhere Zone” which I had mixed was nominated twice at the MIDEM festival in Cannes in 2014.
I’m also very grateful to Mike Puskas (Melbourne, Australia) owner of Ikonic Artist Management label - who I’m still in frequent collaboration with. Mike is a great leader and producer with a fantastic vision of music.
My vast experience I have gained over many years allows me to manage any genre and sub-genre project: Hip-Hop, Electronic music, Pop, Rock, Symphonic music and so on.
Let me show you what I can do with your music, and you will love the result!
