RECORDING, MIXING, PRODUCTION

Outside of producing my own music under various aliases, I enjoy working with other artists. For many years I have been working as a recording and mixing engineer in a range of professional studio environments. My clients have been many, below I am sharing only a few highlights.

Originally coming from a vocalist background, I feel like I can help recording artists get the most out of their lyrics and takes – with strong attention to detail and a fast work rate, we can usually get a LOT done in a session. If the artist is comfortable, I can often offer suggestions (eg. syllable placement or removal) but will always let the artists express their vision freely!

Outside of these sessions I have been recording and facilitating music programs with troubled Youth and artists affected with disability. For nine years I’ve been working in Youth Justice and other custodial settings running music programs with companies like Living Music and Parkville College. Coming from a place of no-ego I am always creating a chill pressure-free environment.

Over the years I have been Sinks’ go-to for recording, and also quite a lot of mixing. I’ve recorded his last three albums which have all been pressed to wax.

After working closely with Smash Brothers as the go-to recording engineer for a long time, it was surreal that the night they brought The Godfather of Grime WILEY to the studio. I wrote this beat hours before their arrival and we banged this tune out!

At my older studio “SafeHouse Studio” we recorded a series of 13 different artists for The Guilty Party Youtube Channel. This was one of my favourite of the bunch, from MOTLEY.
