De Delvers live sessions, for which I provided the recording and mixing.
Made an EP with the guys in RZMNR. Proud of the result! The good kind of gnarly and nasty stoner vibes, if you ask me.
Lovely dutch postpunk vibes in this video from De Delvers, the first single of a record that I mixed over the course of the previous year. Have a listen!
It’s been an awful while since I last posted here (almost exactly a year!). Ever since becoming a father my music production output went into a steep decline. So naturally I currently focus on other – and equally fun – priorities.
Despite all that, I’ve done a fair amount of live mixing and a few live recordings (which aren’t released yet). A cool project I’m participating is also due next year (I mixed it), so expect some nifty stuff in a few months.
Nothing new on the DIY front either, although I’m planning on finishing a second Don Classics NV73. Hey, that’s not entirely true, I finally finished what’s actually a really important, often ignored, piece of gear: broadband absorbers. Made with Rockwool (a pack I got years ago as a present, this type is no longer manufactured), wood and Ikea DITTE fabric. Put together with bolts and a stapler. It’s actually really easy, I can recommend building things like this to everyone who’d like to improve their room acoustics.
Not bad, if I may say so myself 😉
Made a little playlist containing only live-recordings (recording on multitrack – mixed afterwards at home). Just to give you an impression of the recording quality that’s possible with this kind of approach. Have a listen!
Really proud of these recent additions to my online portfolio. Have a listen!
- No new DIY builds so far. It does take quite some time and funds, and that’s pretty much what I didn’t have at my disposal the last few months.
- Lots of Psychonaut live mixing in venues large and small all over the country. Lots of fun!
- A visual selection of recent work where I provided the audio:
Louie – Seriously (mix)
Murphy Munro (rec+mix)
Made a few live recordings this summer that turned out great:
The Dead Beat Society – These indie youngsters from Mechelen recorded their very first EP at Moonbeat, I think the mix suits their style very much despite the fact that everything was recorded live.
Denis Clement Quintet – this Ghent-based jazz quintet wanted to record a new demo in the pianist’s living room. A sweaty day, but the sweat paid off well.
Mixed the Big Band Lier a few weeks ago. The band were so kind to supply an X32 desk so I thought I’d record the show and mix it afterwards. The venue was extremely reverberant but it worked out quite well in the end! I think I’ve also been able to capture the dynamics of a big band in the recording. Anyway, here’s a snippet of their rendition of “Big Spender”.
