Marcella Araica is an American recording and mixing engineer, who has recorded and mixed tracks for artists including Britney Spears, Madonna, Pink, Duran Duran and Keri Hilson.
Marcella started her professional career as an assistant at the Hit Factory in March 2002. After graduating with honors from the Full Sail Production and Recording Program in Orlando, Florida, she was identified as a person with tremendous potential. After only two months, she was working as an assistant engineer in sessions for Timbaland and Missy Elliott. Subsequently, she became a fulltime engineer at the studio, working closely with Timbaland. In 2003, she met Danja who recognised that her potential would take her far. Danja soon involved Marcella in the recording and mixing of all of his records, helping him to achieve “his sound.” Marcella continued to work with Timbaland as well, and has mixed some of his biggest hits in recent years.
