  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both. Silly question.

  5. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

    I have moved into a new studio in Hackney. The studio has two rooms, an SSL room with a large live room - with a Bluthner grand piano, and a Neve room with a good-sized vocal booth. The gear and microphone collection is incredible, get in touch for details.
