See my reviews. Trumpet and valve trombone recorded with a Neumann tube mic and Neve preamp. Pro horns at a good price. Editing, tuning and big, punchy mixing. Twitter: https://twitter.com/GoldenMileStud1
For a few years now I've been building up my home studio of high-end mics and equipment, writing, recording and mixing, but my speciality now is BRASS.
If you want horns on your tracks I can play and record them, trumpet and valve trombone, with a very high-end recording chain.
If you have brass lines in mind I can copy them from midi brass or a keyboard part, or I can write brass and stack up harmonies with trombone and trumpet, add improvised solos.
If you want changes afterwards I'll make revisions until you are happy with the work.
The mixing setup is hybrid digital and analogue. High end outboard compressors and EQs etc.

Went above and beyond with extra instrumentation! Exactly what I was going for!! Super communication throughout and let me know when to expect the tracks!
Mr Golden recorded some fantastic brass for my samba song. He made some subtle changes to my arrangement that made a big difference. I would definately recommend him
Golden is very friendly, professional and responsive. His work is punctual and well recorded. Every stem he did for us is well played and adds to our song what we were looking for. We will contact him for sure in the future! Super Cool Brass! :)

Steven did a fantastic job replacing brass samples with live recordings! He's quick, accurate and has a great attitude! Highly recommended!!
Second time hiring Golden Mile Studio with an equally fast and high quality deliver just as before. They even picked out and recorded some extra parts for the project, just for good measure! Excellent all-round; great communicator, quick turnaround and super professional results = 100% satisfaction and most highly recommended. Thank you!
Great work from Steven and the guys yet again. He even re-edited some audio stems without me having to ask and delivered the work much earlier than expected! Always bang on point for any brass work I might need, top class results.

A fantastic job, great feel for the song and really brought it to life.Next job already planned,JJ
Steven did a great job on 2 of my songs. He is a great musician and his recordings sound top-notch. He makes me want to write more songs just so I can have him record more horn parts.
Steven went above and beyond on both of my songs, great playing, great tone, quick turnaround. Can't wait to work with him again!
For a couple of years Golden Mile have provided session horns and mixing to The Specialized Project. Always providing a quick service whilst retaining the upmost professional standards.
