Black Cave Recordings is an Edinburgh-based company that offers mobile and studio recording for bands, mixing & mastering services and music production lessons.

Black Cave Recordings is run by Andrew Rankine, a record label owner (ABAGA Records), electronic music producer/DJ (Tactus) and touring musician (drummer in Scumpulse and Tower of Flies). He has had his productions, mixes and masters played all over the world, including BBC Radio One and BBC 1Xtra, and has lectured for MOBO about the music industry.

Through working in several recording studios, he has gained experience in producing, mixing and mastering recordings for bands and producers of many genres, giving his own input into their compositions where needed, whilst making them feel relaxed and bringing the best possible sound and performance out of them. Andrew has many years gigging, recording and production experience, and plays several musical instruments, which gives him a great understanding of what a musician requires during a recording session, and has worked with a wide range of DAWs, equipment and plugins.

Since completing a BA (Hons) Popular Music degree in 2009, he has worked in the music industry non-stop, and has gained a reputation of being great to work with, while delivering excellent final results.
