Producer, Recording, Mixing and Mastering Engineer

Steven Raets is a producer, mixing and mastering engineer based in the Triangle, NC

A life long music enthusiast who played in bands since he was 12y old,  finally found his home in Hillsborough NC, where he founded Sonark Media. His vision was to build an amazing studio retreat where artists would feel comfortable to create.
 After 3 years, that vision has taken shape. A 63 acres farm with trails, a 3 1/2 acre lake, glowing hills, amazing sunrises and sunsets, 5 bedroom guesthouse and a top notch studio building with 2 studio’s.  His idea is to build a media powerhouse that can help empower creators by merging audio, video and technology into one deliverable that artists simply can’t refuse. He is currently focussing on developing a platform called Pie™ to help creators take a bigger share of the pie.

 Over the years, Steven has produced, recorded and mixed numerous bands.  He is a driven and enthusiastic artistic mind with a positive attitude, keen on helping bands, artists and singer/songwriters achieve their potential.

His credits are quite diverse ranging from  best metal album of the year 2017 for his mastering of Darkness Remains by Night Demon (Billboard #19 Current Rock) to mixing and mastering of the full blown symphonic orchestra production for Sandham with singer Bombay Jayashri.
