Autumn 2017

Had quite a lot on on here recently with some great bands coming through the Studio!

 

First up I had Juniper Grave in recording their first demo tracks. We tracked pretty much everything in a day, with Vocals being the only overdub. Really enjoyed working on this and if you’re into Occult blues rock with a slice of doom then check them out!!

Next in were Inverness’ finest, Slioch. Back in to record their second EP with me. Always fun to work with these guys & the new EP turned out Great!

I also had Michael Branagh back in working on a his new song Autmnal!

Lastly, I have had NNGNN back in mixing a live show they had recorded London. Quite intense stuff to work on but it’s sounding pretty good so far… Will update with details when I have them.

 

Looking forward a couple of weeks & I have Dolour & Black Market Tyrants coming in to the Studio 🙂

Gareeda – The Director’s Half-Cut

This week see’s the official release of the new Gareeda record “The Director’s Half-Cut”.

A selection of older songs the band wanted to re-record along with a few new tracks thrown into the mix. This was recorded here around October time in 2016 but the mixing didn’t get finished until March 2017…. It’s been quite a long road with this one but it turned out pretty good!

Check it out below

Cheers!

Psychotic Depression – Thirty Hours Work Or Less

February 2017 saw Psychotic Depression coming into the studio to record their debut ep ‘Thirty Hours Work Or Less’.

The guys fairly rattled through the recording process and the mixing was completed fairly quickly aswell!

I’m really happy with how it all turned out  & you can check it out below… For fans of The Obsessed & Trouble

A Lake Of Ghosts

Last year I recorded & mixed Of Spire & Throne​’s re-working of the My Dying Bride classic “My Wine In Silence”.
It was included on Doom-metal.com’s 2 disc tribute to My Dying Bride which is available now!

This was quite a lot of fun to work on as the whole thing was recorded & mixed very quickly. The guys wanted a very rough & ready sound to counter the usual,over produced sound of MDB.
Check it out & also check out the other fantastic contributions to this compilation!

Enjoy!

Somaesthesia – Path Of Least Resistance

Last May I recorded the debut EP for Edinburgh metal band, Somaesthesia. They are a really great band combining elements of post-rock, prog & just straight up heavy metal to great effect.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the band & hope to do so again in the future!

In the meantime though the EP was mastered by James Plotkin and is now scheduled for a March release through Infinite Hive Music.

The first song has been released and you can check out below or you can check out the video here

Motorhead – Electricity

Towards the end of 2016 Produce Like A Pro teamed up with producer Cameron Webb to put together a mixing course with music by Motorhead. You can check out the course here:

Mixing Motörhead with Cameron Webb

Cameron has produced every Motorhead album since 2004’s Inferno so he know’s what he’s on about. It was great to hear anecdotes & get insights into his techniques on how he recorded & mixed Motorhead.

The last part of the course was the full pro-tools session, including all original files for the song ‘Electricity’, taken from the 2015 album ‘Bad Magic’.

Motorhead are one of my favourite bands & I had a massive amount of fun mixing this… Hope you enjoy listening to it 🙂

Get in touch if you would like any recording or mixing work done.

Cheers,

Stu

Of Spire & Throne

Last weekend saw the start of tracking for the new Of Spire & Throne album. 3 days in Edinburgh’s Chamber Studio getting the drums, bass & guitars down.

There is still a massive amount of work to go into this record but it’s shaping up to be an absolute monster!

Watch this space…..
