ALL THINGS DIRTY, TRIPPY, GROOVY OR JAZZY - OVER 10 YEARS EXPERIENCE - OVER 140 FIVE STARS REVIEWS ON GOOGLE

My name is JB Pilon and I'm a mixer, music producer, sound engineer and musician. I have been recording bands and artists for over 15 years. Cumulated, my work streams millions on Spotify and featured on the likes of BBC6 and in various short movies or adverts. I run my recording space in East London called Buffalo Studio, and also sometimes get to work in other amazing studios like Abbey Road, RAK, Konk or Livingston.
Musician at heart I often ended up playing on the projects I produce or compose.
