I’m just an audio nerd from a big city in the UK. 🤓 I have worked on many projects over the years spanning from Indie, Punk, Hip Hop and anything in between. I became known for my work with UK punk band Cast Ashore around 2012, that’s when I started to take this gig seriously 😎 I work using a hybrid mix setup so the possibilities are endless!

Interview with Nathan Wadsworth - Producer
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Hybrid, merging the two domains creates endless possibilities.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style depends entirely on the project at hand, I will always ask the artist what they want it to sound like, that is the most important part of being a mix engineer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I’d love to work with Leslie Brathwaite because his approach to vocal mixing is inspiring.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I tend to start my day at 9am, I spend 30 minutes checking emails and the itinerary of the day, then I will set myself a target number of mixes, or songs I want to complete by the end of the day, taking breaks frequently to avoid ear fatigue.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don’t be scared to tell me if you don’t like something, this is your vision, and I want to make it sound as close to what you want it to sound like as possible.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: - MacBook Pro - 2tb SSD hard drive - UAD Apollo - Neumann U87 - iLok dongle
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for just over 11 years, I started out in a spare room in my parents house when I was 16 years old. From there, I and a few friends I met during my time playing in bands, decided that we would build our own recording facility from the ground up, we all learnt so much from this experience.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Back up everything at the end of a day!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on an array of genres but I mainly work on hip hop, pop and rock music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ability to work well under pressure.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a no nonsense attitude when I mix, everything is planned as per the artists wishes and recommendations.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have my own studio space located in Sheffield, UK. It consists of a live room and a control room. I run a hybrid style set up with plenty of analog outboard and plenty of up to date, high end software plugins.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I’m a big fan of Steve Albini, his work ethic and overall approach to his craft is inspiring.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a recording and mix engineer with over 10 years experience, I have worked on a number of huge hits over the years, mainly for artists from the UK and USA.
