Bio, Credits and Client List


Mixx was born in South Florida, being raised around music ever since. Mixx found his love for music at the early age of 15 in a recording studio/record label owed by his family, where he had the opportunity to shadow lead engineers and then started engineering/producing for aspiring artists. Mixx then built his own recording studio at home where he began producing, recording and mixing numerous independent artists in south Florida. He eventually decided to attend Full Sail University at the age of 18 to expand his knowledge on the technical aspects of gear and equipment used for recording, mixing and producing music.

Following his graduation from Full Sail University, Mixx entered a partnership as a recording /mixing engineer with two local studios in South Florida. There he gained credits working with Ky-Mani Marley, Sizzla Kalonji, Ace Hood, Mya, Rico Love, Kevin Cossom, Black Dada, Fat Joe, Power 96, MTV, and many more. Mixx then increased his independence by taking a new approach by finding his own clients, then bringing them to a major studios named South Beach studios in Miami, FL where he made a name for himself working with Puff Daddy, French Montana, Scott Storch, Hit Maka, Teyana Taylor, Fabulous, King Los, Kid Ink, Yo Gotti, Rocko Da Don and many more.
