"MJD delivers world class tracking and production at a fraction of the cost, it's just scientific fact. Mike is meticulous and a complete mixing wizard who has a gift for getting the best performance out of anyone. If you want your band to sound like they flew to LA with an unlimited budget to make an album, hit up MJD."
"MJD was super professional and really chilled out throughout the entire process. Straight up one of the best sounds we've gotten out of recording anything. MJD will literally squeeze every ounce of potential out of a song, putting his own creative flair into the track but also knows when to hold back and let the song shine for itself. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him again."
"Having worked with numerous producers, engineers and mastering engineers; I can safely say that MJD’s services in relation to quality and cash is second to none. The entire process was refreshing as you are kept in the loop as much or as little as you’d like! This makes me confident in saying that Mike will go the extra mile every time to ensure his clients are happy."
"MJD, a really awesome guy who takes pride in his work and has great attention to detail. The recent project has been mixed and sends insane, highly recommended if you want a decent mix at affordable prices."
"MJD's detailed hearing always helps me get the best possible mix before mastering and as a result the finished product always sound great. I trust MJD with all of my mastering."
"Mike is an awesome guy to work with and someone who knows his stuff inside out. An absolute must go to for any band out there wanting to sound ahead of the rest."
"Being a new band, we had some preconceptions about how we thought we'd need to record and produce it. Michael blew these out of the water without batting an eye-lid; literally becoming a 4th member of the band without over imposing.
During preproduction he made himself constantly available by assuring us of any concerns. He helped us prepare to maximise our time with him, attended live shows, studied our live rehearsal recordings and delved deep into our personal drum, bass and guitar tones.
The mix-down process was then smooth and exciting with regular updates which kept us in the loop and exceeded all expectations from the very first mix. His embellishments have added a distinct depth, excitement and vibe to our E.P's sonic picture and impressively has not compromised our performance or sound."

When I first decided to release my music, I contacted many producers all over the world. Made by MJD was the fastest to respond, and the most professional while maintaining a budget friendly price.
He brought the song in my head to life with his incredible artistic vision, and sharp attention to detail. All the while making sure I still felt like the song was as much my masterpiece, as it was his.
Mike is a motivated professional, 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone.
"The production on the record compliments it's musical proficiency. “Diatribe” sounds open, clear, and precise...The performances of the musicians on the record cannot receive enough praise. Yes, in the genre of Prog. Metal everyone can play, but here you have a band who truly love to; and you can hear it in every playful pinch harmonic and every rhythmic roll.Production 9/10."
"Michael's production lends honesty to the final mixes aesthetic while delivering clarity to the details in the bands’ compositions, all without compromising what AXIOM do best."
Michael is an incredibly talented and creative individual. Attention to detail is second to none with a true passion for any and all music. He is currently producing work for my project and I could not be happier. Patience, knowledgeable and one of the kindest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional producer as you will find none better. THANK YOU MIKE!!!
"They immediately shock you with their exceptional sound quality and production. The song has top-class technical standards as well as the musical and composing. This is one of the greatest prog-rock mixes I have heard for a very long time."
