Mixes, masters, overdubs

Ian Button on SoundBetter

Former guitarist with Death In Vegas, Thrashing Doves and many more - now drummer and specialist in remote mixing & post production, mastering & compiling, and instrumental/vocal overdubs. Very fast, no fuss, flexible ethic.

My CV combines many years studio and live experience as a musician with self taught production, mixing, and mastering, as well as some work in teaching.
Having been mainly a guitarist through the 80s and 90s I'm now mostly a drummer in terms of playing/sessions.
I've tutored in production and songwriting at university level (Point Blank, University of Westminster etc), and currently work freelance on productions, mastering etc for a range of low-overhead independent projects, artists and labels.
I've produced and overseen a series of releases though the label/collective Gare Du Nord Records, including by my current project Papernut Cambridge. I've also mastered a large number of releases for labels such as Blang, WIAIWYA, Fika Recordings, Skep Wax, Tapete, Precious.
I have contacts and access to a range of studios if needed (Soup, Rimshot, One Cat, Big Jelly), but mostly now I work remotely on mixing and mastering jobs at home.
My setup includes some classic analog outboard gear (API, Drawmer), a good range of mics and a selection of instruments, gadgets and plugins.
In terms of remote overdubs: guitars, vocals, keys etc are all possible - drums too, as a mixture of programmed and live playing. For full kit recording I'd rent a studio, or find a location space and use my own mobile recording gear.
I can arrange parts and program for strings/brass/other instruments.
