Dan Crook on SoundBetter

Mercury nominated Producer, Mixer and Musician

Prior to even completing university, Dan had made his way into commercial recording studios, quickly working with acts such as The Who, Cutting Crew and The Pretty Things.

In the years since, Dan has gone on to help cement himself within the industry by setting up in a private space hidden deep within the Sussex countryside built by himself and fellow producer, Ben Hillier. From here, he's worked on records for artists as broad as:
Gang of Four,
Nadine Shah,
Juanita Stein,
Seth Lakeman,
Peter Perrett,
Josh T Pearson,
Creeping Jean,
Melt Yourself Down &

Dan describes himself as a creative engineer and mixer:
"I don't really allow myself to be dictated by what could be considered a 'standard approach' to recording or mixing. I like to focus on how a recording should be framed for the listener to fall into as easily as possible, but by my means. I do this by understanding the eclectic range of gear that I have at my disposal here at the studio and how it can be used and abused."
