Karri is super nice and easy-going! Working with him has been very easy and most importantly the quality of mixing has been top-notch. We've liked Karri's innovative way of working as he has not just put tracks together. Karri always listens with his sharp ears what does the song really need and uses his skills to make the song better. All in all, very flexible way of working and great quality of mixing - that's what you really need to get your songs sound better!

His organizational skills are top-notch and he is really supportive. I´m very grateful to Karri for making my musical dreams come true!

His technical skills include audio engineering, singing, composing, arrangements, mixing, mastering and production planning. His very kind interpersonal skills are based on positive communication, encouragement and endless support. Mika masters a great number of music genres and seems to always find the essential in each artist's style and message.

I´ve gotten lots of support and expert advice from Karri on recordings I´ve done myself. And when Karri has mixed those tracks he has always been very considerate of any requests I´ve had. I always feel confident sending a song to be mixed by Karri as I know we´ll definitely be on the same page looking for the right sound.

Karri really created my (Pilvi Hattara) sound as he was the co-writer, producer, recording, mixing and mastering engineer for my debut EP. I´d describe him as skilled, honest, resilient, innovative and easy to work with. He´s got great views on songwriting and production and seems to be able to produce music in any genre. He´s also been very helpful in advising me about matters related to music distribution and copyright.

I got to know Mika a few years back through a project we worked on. I had long been developing ideas of music that would reflect the essence of Aavedata. Mika was the professional who understood my need and the idea sprang into reality as our collaboration. I look forward to working with Mika again in the future!

We did our first single with Karri. Working and communicating with him was easy. Karri was very considerate regarding our artistic aspirations during the process. He is a talented musician and very down to earth person and producer.
Karri has had a significant role in my career. He's one of the best, possibly even the best recording engineer I know. With Karri, it's always easy to work with and he is very flexible in the studio. With his help I've been able to further myself and my career. I recommend his services for artists of any status because he simply is that good!

In my experience they're very invested in doing quality work and won't settle for any half-done product. Communication with them is effortless whether they're working with novice or experienced musicians.
