Drum Recording and Mixing

Scott Jamieson on SoundBetter

Raised on Rock, Punk and Metal, and with years of experience performing Jazz and Funk, I've developed a well rounded style and sensibilities that can cater to a wide range of genres. Recently I've worked with funk and soul legend Hamish Stuart (Average White Band).

I moved to the capital to further study music in 2009, and due to meeting and working with so many incredible musicians, I've been here ever since. Quickly becoming a regular face on the late night funk scene, I held a residency at the renowned 'The Jazz Bar' for 5 years, whilst being heavily involved in various original projects. In this time I have developed a great working relationship with local acclaimed studios, Chamber Studio and Slate Room Studio.

Some current projects include 'James Brown is Annie', a straight up funk and soul band, with the latest album being produced by Hamish Stuart. 'Atom Eyes', a modern neo-soul influenced outfit with a tip of the cap to old school G-Funk grooves. 'Slow Gear', a 7 piece fusion monster, with odd grooves and crazy horns.

I am dedicated when it comes to creating the perfect drum sound and performance for a track. I have a large collection of high quality drums and cymbals and love to spend time selecting, tuning and recording to the best of my ability.

Interview with Scott Jamieson

  1. Q: How would you describe your style?

  2. A: Groove based, with heavy funk and jazz influences. Often experimenting with hip-hop and neo-soul styles. More than happy to sit back on recordings that call for it!

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: Make it sound as good as possible on the way in!

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I have been heavily involved in Funk/Soul music within the last 5 years. Recently I have been working on recording sounds for more Rock and Pop based productions.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: I'm just as much of an obsessive listener and lover of music as I am a performer. I was raised to love all styles and genres, and I feel this can be heard in my recordings. I'd also be confident saying that the extensive experience working within the Scottish jazz/funk scene has given me a further understanding of how grooves can work in many different situations.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: My setup is constantly evolving, although at the centre is my treasured 1970s Sonor Phonic drum kit. I have an assortment of snare drums and cymbals, some of my favourites and most used being my Ludwig Black Beauty 14x5, DW Collectors Series 13x6, Zildjian Special Dry 21" Ride Cymbal and Meinl Extra Thin 20" Crash Cymbal. I use industry standard microphones.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: My biggest inspiration for becoming more involved in online sessions would have to be Ash Soan. I've been fortunate enough to study with him as well as share a stage at an Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival gig.
