EP26 - Brent Amaker & Darci Carlson (Brent Amaker Deathsquad)
Release Date: 09/03/2019
We are introducing a new version of the show this week called Track by Track. Instead of covering a musician's entire career, we will spend our time doing a deep dive into one album that they have made. We will cover everything from where it was recorded, who engineered, tracked, mixed, and mastered it, who played what instruments, how the songs were written and constructed, and what the tracks mean to the artists who made them. My first guest on Track by Track is my old friend Brandon O'Brien. Together, we will deconstruct his band's self titled EP, Chemical X. ...info_outline EP37 - Floyd Reitsma (Engineer, Producer, Mixer at Studio Litho)
Our special guest this week is producer, engineer, and mixer Floyd Reitsma. Floyd primarily records at Studio Litho in Seattle, but also records in many studios around the city. In this episode, we talk about how Floyd cut his teeth as a young producer, his philosophy around making creative choses, and how he goes about understanding an artist’s vision so he can best assist with bringing that to life on record.
