Welcome to Fatal Mastering

Welcome to Fatal Mastering

In 2009, I set up Fatal Mastering to cater to independents in the dance music industry. You might have heard some of my production work. Most known are my releases under my alias Jaimy, collaboration projects Jaimy & Kenny D, Dimitri & Jaimy and my remixes for Dominica, 2 Men Will Move You, Tiesto, Danny Tenaglia, Anane and Oscar G.

For over 20 years, I am a professional producer of what we all just called 'House Music' in the early 90's.
I started my own label, Fatal Music, in 2004, and decided to master the records myself. Not just because it was a big time and money saver, but also because I was often disappointed by the results from other mastering studios.

When performing as a dj at various small and big international clubs like Rise (Boston), Pacha (NYC), Stereo (Montreal) and Kadoc (Portugal), I often received feedback on how good the records sounded. At that point, I felt confident enough to start offering my mastering services to others. I am happy I made that decision, because it has been a great pleasure working with different clients on a great variety of productions.
My approach is to have one-on-one communication with you, the client. I invest a lot of time in getting clear what sound you are looking for and how we can achieve that together.
If you are reading this now and are curious about what I can do for your track, please do get in touch. Our pricing is transparent and you only pay if you are happy with what you hear.

I look forward working with you!

Bob Kats on loudness and mastering

Written by Jaimy

Electronic dance music may pop to some extend of course. When a client requests, I apply tricks to add loudness, but never at the expense of sound quality. There is still much debate, at least in dance music, on when this limit is exceeded. This is an interesting video where Bob Katz, renowned audio mastering engineer and author of the popular book "Mastering Audio: The Art and the Science", explains why there is a limit to how loud a track can be without sounding bad.

All-in-one mastering tools vs creating your own chain

Written by Jaimy
Wednesday, 01 October 2014 00:00

Some engineers claim that using just an EQ and compressor is enough to master a track properly. There is some truth in that, but really only in the ideal situation of a master. In 9 out of 10 cases you are not going to get away with just using an EQ and compressor. I use an entire chain of plugins that all do a little bit of work in the entire mastering process. By doing so I have full control over the audio file and I can use the power of the plugins which each excel in just a small part of my chain. There are all-in-one mastering plugins, that work ok if you know what you are doing, but I personally am not a fan of using them.
