If you've listened to any of Kendrick Lamar's projects over the last five years -- Section.80, good kid, m.A.A.d city; To Pimp a Butterfly and untitled unmastered. -- the name Derek "MixedByAli" Ali should ring a bell. The California native is the guy responsible for engineering and mixing K. Dot's music so that the final product is a fine-tuned masterpiece.

With an engineer like MixedByAli behind the boards, an artist's song will get the five-star treatment, which is why LANDR is giving artists of all genres the opportunity to have a track polished by the man himself.
