LISTEN/WATCH

Naughty Boy - HOME - Ft Sam Romans (Single) - MIX

Amazing track and new single from Naughty Boy, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sam Romans previously and his voice never fails to impress me.

 

Kyan - SHUTTLE - MIX

Hot new singer/songwriter from Cambridge, definitely one to watch.

 

Mumford & Sons - THE BOXER Ft Jerry Douglas - ENG

Five men in a room, one take. This was a bonus track on the Grammy award winning “Babel” album. I think the fact that Paul Simon added his touches meant that he liked the cover.

 

The White Stripes - JOLEEN - MIX

Recorded as part of a live show and what now makes up the “Live Under Blackpool Lights” award wining DVD, this track was taken and released as a single. I have been told that Jack sent this DVD on ahead of every White Stripes gig and said to the production team, “This is what I’m supposed to sound like”!

 

Adele - COLD SHOULDER - ENG

Talented artist meets talented producer. Mark Ronson brought the best out of Adele and her band for this hit single.

 

Ellie Goulding - Your Song - MIX & ENG

We initially recorded a short version of this for an advert, but as soon as the label heard what Ellie’s voice brought to the song they asked her to do a complete version. Produced by the talented Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons). I think this is a beautiful version of a great song.

 

Amy Winehouse - CUPID - ENG

Originally recorded for the Island Records 50th Anniversary album, this is now a bonus track on the re-release of the Grammy winning album, Back To Black.I can promise you that this is ALL live, INCLUDING the vocal! This is take 2. We only did 2 takes. It was the second time Amy had sung the song ever. Talent.

 

Magnetic Man - GETTING NOWHERE ft John Legend - MIX

A track from 2010’s seminal Dubstep pioneers album, Magnetic Man. Featuring John Legend. Mixed in Hugh Padgham’s studio, Sofa Sound.

 

Foals - SPANISH SAHARA (w/ London Conteporary Orchestra) - ENG

Recorded the London Contemporary Orchestra at Flood’s studio, Assault and Battery 2. This song was voted NME’s track of the year 2010.

 

Mumford & Sons / Birdie - LEARN ME RIGHT – Disney Pixar’s Brave OST - ENG

Recorded at AIR studios in one day during a busy touring schedule, we ended up needing to overdub some lead vocals at a later date. We did this in a much more relaxed home studio environment and I clearly remember a summers day with the window open and as Birdie sang, I had a Disney moment – birds were in the bushes just outside and were chirping in time with the track!

 

Youmeatsix - RESCUE ME ft CHIDDY BANG - ENG

Recorded this in September ’10 as the band was looking to add material to their album when they signed to Virgin. Produced by Ishi (Tinie Tempah), in a track that sees both band and producer crossing into the other’s comfort zone. I think it ended in a great result for one of Kerrang!’s favourite bands.

 

Keane - STOP FOR A MINUTE - ft K’NAAN - ENG

As part of the Night Train EP that Keane wrote whilst on tour, this track is a collaboration with Canadian rapper K’Naan. Recorded at Ben Hillier’s esoteric and creative studio, The Pool.

 

Patrick Wolf - OVERTURE - MIX & ENG

A track from the album, “Sundark and Riverlight”, a collection of acoustic songs from the last ten years.

 

Seth Lakeman - THE COURIER - MIX

Radio Mix of the last single from the Mercury prize nominated Folk artist.

 

Moloko - FOREVERMORE - MIX & ENG

A track from Moloko’s last studio album, Statues. Overdubs on this album were as diverse as trying to blow up a keyboard to dangling coat-hangers from wires over the 2 story balcony at Metropolis!

 

Winter Mountain - SHED A LITTLE LIGHT - Co-PROD & ENG

Cornish / Irish duo making big waves in the folk scene, a joy to make this album with these guys.

 

Juan Zelada - BLUES REMAIN - PROD & ENG

An uplifting Bluesy track from the award winning Spanish / British performer. You won’t be surprised to learn that it became a firm favourite of Jools Holland!
