What are you working on at the moment?
Ital Vibes full length album. Finalizing an EP with Eureka Roots.
Analog or digital and why?
Both. I'm not going to make a generalization about one or the other, each has their gems and their junk. I will say a lot of digital gear/software makes a huge effort to get an 'analog' sound, and I, like most, am guilty of using these. But they really are great. Love the universal audio tape emulations.
