Our View? Great Sound Captivates.
Welcome To Mojito!
As new media expands our stage -connecting artists with audiences around the world- cutting through the volume of content has become a unique challenge. With listeners sifting through an endless pool of tracks, samples, and videos, artists need a way to grab attention instantaneously.
Our view? Great sound captivates.
We share a belief with our artists that mastering for a digital audience is key to commanding attention, and that performing in a competitive industry means your songs must sound as memorable online as they do on your record.
Blending an old-school devotion to audio with a digital focus, we’re helping artists engage their online audience by creating a sound that’s memorable.
Fascinated by the perceptions of sound, Reuben is on a continuous quest to perfect the art of engaging listeners.
A life-long learner, he picked up mastering while working at The Lacquer Channel. Skilled in traditional mastering, Reuben also specializes in digital media mastering, finding innovative ways to enhance digital music for the online audience. His experience spans a variety of musical genres from rock and pop to jazz and classical.
A respected recording and broadcast engineer, Reuben spent five years working for the CBC with programs such as Q, Radio 3 and Canada Live. He’s worked at Phase One and Reaction Studios with a growing portfolio of artists that includes Death Cab for Cutie, The National, and The New Pornographers. His post-production resume includes commercials for prominent clients like Coke, McDonalds, and Toyota. He credits these experiences for helping him master the art of making a song sound great on the air.
Reuben studied music at McGill University, before going on to earn a masters degree in their renowned Sound Recording program. He has taught music technology at Humber College.
As a veteran of Canada’s music scene, Reuben became interested in creating a studio of his own where clients could experience superior service in a comfortable environment. At work, Reuben offers an exceptional standard with a laid back approach. At home, he likes strong beer and even stronger coffee.
An eye for media coupled with a strong background in communications and publicity means that while Reuben works his mastering magic, Chris manages the studio and holds down the front office.
After graduating with a degree in Communications and Business he moved to New York City to pursue a job with music and lifestyle marketing firm, The Musebox. As a publicist he worked on press and tour campaigns for a number of international artists, including heavy-hitters Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and Robert Randolph and his Family Band.
Recently he’s worked with the Canadian roots mainstay, Six Shooter Records, promoting much of the roster including Luke Doucet, Melissa McClelland, and The Deep Dark Woods. He attributes his early experience in business and marketing to roles working with Calgary’s Shakespeare in the Park and the beloved Calgary Folk Music Festival.
With nothing more than a backpack, Chris’ love for adventure has taken him exploring across Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. When he’s not dabbling in his own songwriting or cheering on his Calgary Flames, you can likely find him entrenched in his latest hobby: brewing beer.
