Miklos Malek is a Hungarian-born music producer, mixing and mastering engineer based in Los Angeles. He is known for his deep musical knowledge, dedication to quality, and attention to detail. Miklos’ work has led to worldwide sales that exceed 15 million units by artists including Jennifer Lopez, Armin Van Buuren, Anastacia, Faith Evans, Pixie Lott and Yanni. Miklos studied classical piano and composition and received his master’s degree from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. After a string of Hungarian hits, he decided to continue his career in the USA. Miklos attended Berklee College of Music in Boston but after only two semesters, he accepted a publishing deal at hitmaker Ric Wake’s publishing company in NYC. This amazing introduction to the New York musical landscape led to his breakthrough in the USA first as a songwriter (Anastacia) and then as an arranger/programmer (Jennifer Lopez). After 6 years in NY, he relocated to LA and began focusing on mixing records and film scores; mastering and stem mastering (Armin Van Buuren). In 2010, he was invited to be a judge on X-Faktor, the Hungarian version of the UK TV show. Miklos stayed in the limelight for 3 wildly successful seasons then returned to the studio where he feels at home the most, aside from the volleyball courts on the beach.
