I am an Antwerp based recording engineer/mixer doing mainly “heavier” music but I have done anything from folk/acoustic/50’s rock ’n roll to garagerock, progrock, stoner, doom and thrash/deathmetal.
I try to capture the magic that happens when a band plays together in the same room as much as I can so I will always try to track live as much as possible.
I’m really into cool ribbon mics and analogue gear and prefer to mix in the analogue domain instead of entirely “In The Box” 

Some projects I did:

Sardonis, The Jagged Frequency, WB & The Mercenaries, Psychonaut, Grimmsons, Hootka, Black Swarm, Moonshine Reunion, Experienced?!?, …
