EVERY GREAT TRACK DESERVES A GREAT MIX

Mixing isn’t a job, it’s a passion

The final mix is one of the most important factors in the production process. A great mix will allow the track to stand out and be rewarding to listen to every time. After all of the artist’s hard work, the writing, the arranging, the recording and production, it’s the mix engineer’s responsibility to realise the full potential of that effort, understand the artist’s vision, find the magic and make the music sound awesome. That’s what I strive for every time. Meticulous attention to detail is given to each project and I aim for perfection in every track I mix. It’s my passion to make your music sound the best it possibly can.

My sound.

Learning how to mix is very similar to learning how to play an instrument. You discover your favourite players along the way, learn what they’re about, and eventually amalgamate all those influences into your own unique style. I’ve been inspired by many mix engineers throughout the years but it all started for me when I first discovered Andy Wallace. I’ve been a huge fan of his since first hearing Nevermind by Nirvana in the early 90s, and I’ve followed his work ever since. Other major influences on my mixing style have been Chris Lord-Alge, Mike Fraser, Alan Moulder, Terry Date, Bob Clearmountain, Tony Platt…….to name a few!

When mixing indie, punk, rock and metal, I go for the same kind of kick/bass punctuation and slammin’ guitar/snare vibe as these guys. I want the vocal to shine through and I like my mixes to sound full of energy, like the best sounding live gig ever!  I also work hard to make sure my mixes sound as good quiet as they do cranked.  I always look for the artist’s individuality, and strive to create their own unique sound.

Drum replacement.

Many mix engineers use drum replacement samples as a quick fix these days, but I believe in keeping it real and never use samples unless absolutely necessary. When samples are required, I use my own private collection. These samples are all pre-EQ, allowing me to craft the sound for the song and were recorded using Neve 1081/1073 preamps in the best drum rooms in the U.K. Each drum is hugely multi-sampled using around 200 hits and they are as close to the real thing as possible.
