YÁNG TAN

Mixing | Music Production | Dolby Atmos Mix

Top Female Mixing Engineer | Music Producer | Dolby Atmos Music Mix

Yang Tan, or “Young Tan” as she is sometimes called by her co-workers at Paramount Studio in Hollywood, has a unique background as a specialist in recording orchestral arrangements (she worked with the Chinese National Orchestra back in her native China), but the now Los Angeles-based engineer has become a favorite of urban artists lately. 

Tan is a mixer as well as a music producer. Tan says she likes to work fast, which artists often appreciate in the studio. “I love to do vocal producing and I will constantly be editing their vocals in real-time as they record,” she says. “What I usually like to do is make the demos as good as possible that night [of the recording].”

AMAZING MIX. I can hear every little part clearly, vocals are so clean, and low-end pumps so nice without overloading. Hit radio quality sound! Working together is a breeze and really fun- Young Chef has great ideas and communicates clearly/responds really fast. Ready for the next one!

I have hired Yáng for at least 7 mixes now. She is attentive to detail, and the songs come back sounding polished. I can also always trust her to give me honest feedback about how to achieve the sound I’m looking for. She has become an essential part of my production process.

I had the pleasure of working with Yáng on an upcoming music project of mine. She presents herself as an engineer but is so much more. Her ability to hear my vision for the music and adopt it as her own was remarkable. When working with Yáng you immediately get the sense that you’ve gained an essential teammate to your project. Her professionalism and ability to create a space where I was a vocalist felt comfortable made the session so enjoyable. I highly recommend Yáng for whatever project you’re working on.

When I initially met Yáng, I knew right away working with her was gonna be lit! Not only did she have a good vibe, but we had amazing chemistry. She makes you feel comfortable. When it comes to working on music, those qualities are imperative because trust is everything. Everything I wanted to be done with my song she knew. She took my music to a whole new level. She is very professional, very kind, and very patient. She’s the only engineer I go to now! She has an impeccable ear and I truly believe she’s the future of engineering.

My Passion for Music

I secretly took music classes! Growing up, everyone in my family was an artist. They had high expectations for me to study and become a well-trained painter. But my real passion was always music. So, when I was in high school, I secretly started taking vocal and classical piano lessons. One of the happiest times in my life was when I found out that I got accepted by a top-rated college in China to pursue my music dream. Through school, I came to realize my ears are my talent and I became obsessed with mixing. With my background in art, I see sound as different colors on my pallet. I see sounds in different colors on my pallet. I have the pleasure of enhancing the colors and expressions of the recording through mixing tools and gear. Music and art are related, and I treat each mix as an audible, moving painting. It’s important to me that audiences can easily hear the images delivered by the song and understand the true story of the artist’s creations.

Background

Coming from classical background, one of Yang’s earliest experiences in music was working with the China National Orchestra as a sound engineer, where she would regularly manage large-scale sound systems, often over 100 channels.

She spent several years working in live sound in Beijing before her desire to go deeper into the creative side of music production motivated her relocation to L.A. in 2014. Following a couple of years of further education and internship, she was hired at Paramount Recording Studios. It was here that her appreciation for Hip Hop and Pop music was truly cultivated, an ongoing passion that still inspires and drives her forward.

Yang Tan has had the pleasure of working with many talented artists to date, including Kanye West, Mike Dean, J. Cole, Pentatonix, and Giveon. She owns and operates Young Jewels Studios and frequently works with her own roster of clients such as Jackson Wang, Raveena, and Maddi Jane. She has been featured in Variety as a hitmaker engineer.

Some of the great clients Yang has had pleasure to work with and learn from:
