"I have worked with a few great Mastering Engineers, mainly keeping one for over 20 years. Times change, as the digital age has developed I needed someone new who excelled in both, the old and the new, I am not a fan of slam mixing, taking all the air out, my music needs breath, with Charles Michaud (Preference Mastering) he gives me the hit of a heavy weight boxer and allows the landscape to breath, most importantly I love his mastering months after, a true sign i have found the right man for Juno Reactor." Ben Watkins - Juno Reactor
