    Working with Matthew again is a pleasure. He worked on a stem mastering of 4 tracks. His work has given the music a coherence plus a great sound. He put his particular Style on it plus made the four songs come together as a unique art piece.
    He also was quick and attentive to my requests. Absolutely recommend!

    It´s been a great choice to work with Matthew again. He was very keen on giving the tracks the sound I was looking for and at the same time he put his own vision, which is something I really appreciate. I asked him to make a stem master of 3 tracks and he did a very insightful mixing plus a great master. He was attentive to any change I needed and quick at sending the files. I would repeat! Thanks!

    It´s been a pleasure to work with Matthew. He sent me different versions of the track and he understood completely what I was looking for. In addition, he has put his own sound on the mastering, something I really appreciate. I´d like to work with him again.

Interview with Matthew Styles

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I mostly mix down and master for my clients.

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

  4. A: Derrick Carter, Ricardo Villalobos, John Talabot, Gerd Janson, Lopazz. I'm lucky to call them all good friends too.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work with Pro Tools 2019 for mixing and mastering. I have prism Sound converters and Meyersound and Amphion Monitoring. Recently upgraded to a Maselec EQ and Thermionic Phoenix Compressor on the mix/mastering bus.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: Normally I import all the audio into a session, I might start by checking everything is sound, no clipping, noise, or unwanted artefacts in the song, then I start to work my way through each channel fixing and issues making sure it's ready for processing. I have a set up that is very flexible, which allows me to get the best results (loud AND dynamic mixes that translate cleanly to all playback systems) I work with multiple busses /(Drums; Bass, Synths; Vocals Etc) here I add what processing is necessary to bring the mix together.

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

  10. A: I like tighten it up sonically, bring lots of vibe and energy to the delivery.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: I have an extremely wide knowledge of music and can quickly gage what people want/need with their song.

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

  14. A: Electronic based.

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

  16. A: keep a close eye on the phase relationship between elements

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: Classic yet Fresh!

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: I've been involved in music since I was a teenager.

  21. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  22. A: that the gear is the most important thing. you need an idea about sound and what is and is not possible.

  23. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  24. A: I'm close to my family and I can help make peoples dreams come true.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Digital mainly, clients really appreciate I can quickly amend something and send a revision in a very quick time. I like analog for special purposes but the reality is if you can't do the job in the digital domain, you won't be able to in the analog domain either. Things have changed greatly the last 5 years or so.

  27. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  28. A: Many many projects Tyler Pope (LCD Soundsystem) first EP, Bella Boo's LP for Studio Barnhus, Route 94's singles, some special projects for Defected
