Tuesday was a day trip to London to hear my new EP being mixed by the wonderful Noel Summerville of 3345 Mastering. The EP is being released on 2 December by Slip Discs under the name GOVES.
Noel works with an analogue 1970s numan mixing desk and uses almost no digital processes at all. It made the music warmer and gave a mainly digitally constructed sequence of new tracks a layer of analogue polish.
As this is also being released on vinyl I also witnessed lacquers being cut for the first time. They look wonderful. I’ve a feeling that this tactile medium for music is going to prove serious addictive.
