Testimonials:

Alen is the most dedicated person to his job I have ever met and believe me I met a lot. He carried my music beyond my imagination with his creative mixing skills. He has this huge advantage of being a performer musician and surely this also makes him a bright arranger and as a producer as well. I honestly would not think to work with anybody else as long as he is around.
