Grammy-winning, and 11-time Grammy-nominated mix engineer Jason Goldstein began his music biz career as a teen, sandblasting floors, washing dishes, and running errands at LA’s famed Ocean Way Studios. In 20 years, he’s become one of the most in-demand hit makers in the contemporary R&B/hip-hop scene, esteemed for his work with Beyoncé Knowles, Jay Z, and The Roots, among many others. His unique perspective gleaned from having an old-school analog foundation, and an intrepid pioneering spirit with technology (he worked on the first digital console) has made him a valuable ally with companies such as Avid, JBL and AKG.
Goldstein’s humility and commitment to the integrity of the work keeps him a top-choice collaborator with artists, producers, and gear companies. Today, Goldstein works mainly out of Downtown Music Studios in New York and teaches a mix engineering course at NYU.
