2018 Has Kicked Off Nicely

It has indeed and I'm not just talking about the Superbowl.

Last year came to a rocking close with a visit to the amazing Monnow Valley studio where I had the pleasure of recording and producing heavy rockers, 10.Gauge. We spent a killer week tracking their debut EP. Mixing then moved into the Sonic Cuisine and we're almost there.

 

January found me in RAK working for the amazing Leo Stannard and recording the National Health Singers with Maverick Sabre for an extremely heart felt NHS Labour film.

It was straight from the studio onto a plane to L.A. for two Wholegrain clinics at Technicolour/Paramount and The Village recording studio in Santa Monica. Then the NAMM madness called where I had the honour of presenting a talk for TEC Tracks on "How to read the minds of artists and producers", followed by an on camera demonstration of Wholegrain's Trio DynPEQ for the guys from Gobbler. It's always a pleasure to meet new people and hook up with old pals at the show. After my presentation I was asked by Pete Turner if he could interview me for the Break It Down Show. You can hear it here.

When Wes "The Wesonator" Maebe left his native Belgium for the concert halls and studios of London, no one could have known that in just a few short years, he would find himself working with acts we all know and love.

 

Namm was followed up with a trip up North for another DynPEQ clinic at Fantasy Studios and to top it all off an amazing recording session at Fantasy where I got to record Gino Robair, Tania Chen and Tom Djil., making some awesome sounds!

 

Back in the UK now, continuing the mixing for 10.Gauge's EP. There's some really cool projects coming out this year, so I will keep you posted as they trickle in.

See you on the other side of the glass.

 

WESONATOR May News Update

Things have been crazy busy since the last update.

Mixing and Mastering has continued at the Sonic Cuisine for various acts and in the mean time there's some very cool news to share with you all.

I have the great pleasure to announce that I am now officially a member of the RAK family. Thank you Trish, Nats, Andy, Robbie, Mike, Jen, Kev and the entire RAK crew for welcoming me to the fold.

RAK has been keeping me busy. Been spending a lot of time going back to my classical roots with the amazing Parker. We started recording her in Studio 1 for her Youtube vids, performing Chopin, Debussy, Scarlatti and Copland. This lead to a new EP recording in Studio 3 on a killer Steinway D.

And what do you know, my super assistant, Max Anstruther, turns out to a fab jazz pianist and composer. We've gone into the studio together to record drums, bass, piano, guitars (stoked to be playing the axe on this one) and vocals for his brand new Mottled Gray record.

Meanwhile Mix Magazine sent me out to Vienna to write the cover story on the Vienna Symphonic Library Synchron Stage. What a place! Read about it here

Lots more news to follow but first time to get back to the faders.

See you on the other or the same side of the glass.
