Never judge a mastering before you were able to hear the source mix. There are quite a lot releases out there which are successful not because of but despite of the audio mastering which was applied. As sales are no guaranty for a great mastering work I prefer concrete work samples with a real before and after comparison. This is a meaningful presentation, because of the documentation of the development process which took place during the audio mastering process. Please have a look on www.YouTube.com/user/audiotechknowledge where you can find a lot AB comparisons. On www.puremix.net you will find even more in depth samples of my work (mastering section).
Beneath famous artists with a personal dedication for excellent sound like Alan Parsons, Iron Maiden, or Johnny Cash for who a was allowed to master I am happy to serve many independent artists and labels around the globe.
