Alex Newport on SoundBetter

Grammy nominated music producer / mixer with 22 years experience - 2 platinum records with City & Colour, as well as seminal records with At The Drive-In, Mars Volta, Bloc Party, Death Cab For Cutie, The Sounds.

I'm an LA-based British producer, mixer, composer and musician. I got my start working with seminal artists At The Drive-In and The Mars Volta.

I've produced 2 records for City & Colour ('Little Hell' & 'The Hurry And The Harm') and mixed the collaborative album from You & Me (featuring City & Colour and Pink) 'Rose Ave'.

I am Grammy nominated for my work on Death Cab For Cutie's 'Narrow Stairs', and I produced Bloc Party's album 'Four', as well as recent records for Weaves, Tigercub, Bleached, Moaning, Matt Costa and The Sounds.

I specialize in pop and indie rock, but I'm open to all genres. I grew up working on analog tape, and although I like a lot of things about digital recording, I tend to have an "analog" mindset - I like sounds that are punchy, saturated, er "warm". I don't mix "in the box" in Pro Tools - I mix using analog summing, through a vintage console. I think it sounds way better than mixing in Pro Tools. I don't use very many plugins, I prefer to use vintage hardware compressors as I think they just sound so much better, and I also use guitar pedals in mixing, as well as a Roland Space Echo, spring reverbs, reamping and so on. Pricing can vary depending on number of tracks, amount of songs, etc, so contact me to discuss, I'd love to hear about your project.

    Very quick turnaround, highly professional, excellent communication, and great mix. I sent him a combination of tracks that had been recorded at home and in a local studio, and he was able to make my home-studio electric guitar tracks sound great and sit right in the mix. The mix was full, loud, dynamic, and nuanced with nice attention to detail that really enhanced the track. Highly recommend.

    Alex is a total pro and went above and beyond with the brief - anyone who can somehow interpret our garbled notes correctly and then actually make it sound great is a genius in our eyes. Super pleased with the end product and hoping to be able to work together again soon!

    We love Alex!!! Our band recorded a full length record with him a few months ago and we beyond excited about the final recordings! Alex is something special to work with, from first meeting, through preproduction, and all the way through the recording process. Just a really patient, engaging, creative, and inspiring producer! Thanks for everything, Alex! Can't wait to work on the next one!

    Three words for Alex - above and beyond. Alex is one of the hardest working people I've ever worked with. And as a skilled and experienced songwriter, lyricist and musician in his own right, Alex helps you get the very best out of yourself and your music.
    His passion and knowledge of music makes him a joy to work with and not only do I have great memories of the session, I also have two of our best tracks yet - recorded, produced and mixed by Alex. Thank you!
