About Tony Maserati
American mixer and producer Tony Maserati is the go-to mixer for the world's pop royalty, racking up mixing credits by the hundreds.
Let's, for the fun of it, name a fraction of the artists Maserati has worked with: Beyonce, Notorious B.I.G, James Brown, The Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Jason Mraz, Nick Jonas, Shawn Mendes and Ariana Grande.
Yeah, few mixers can enjoy that kind of track record.
Maserati cut his engineering teeth in the 1980s at New York's legendary Sigma Sound Studios before going independent. He initially worked both as an engineer and producer, but soon began specialising in mixing, where he helped define the sound of early New York hip-hop and R&B.
His ever smooth, clear-cut and earworm-inducing mixes have seen him receive countless Grammy nominations and a win to boot, but more importantly - they've earned him enormous respect within the industry.
One of the aspects of his tonal intelligence often mentioned by peers and clients, is his ability to compensate for poor or sloppy recordings.
Sometimes you just have to work with what you're given - and few people can transform unassuming songs into tight, musically powerful hits that stay true to the intended artistic direction.
But with Maserati behind the console, it's as good as guaranteed.
