John Chong on SoundBetter

Minimalist approach with focus on analog

Formerly part of the band, Run River North, I'm now currently helping artists in the studio world. I loved working with Phil Ek and Lars Stalfors for our two albums and have picked up a few things from both of them. I have an 1/2" 8 track Otari, alongside my Tascam m520 console. Although I love doing all analog sessions, I'm fine with doing a hybrid or fully in-the-box approach. Cassette is my current hype right now and would love to record a band onto a portastudio.

Things I can do for you:
- Record drums for your songs in many styles with my vintage drums and cymbals
- Produce/Engineer your songs
- Mix
- Put your stems through my tape machines

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    John is very straight forward und easy to work with. Very interesting approach with the tape processing. The end result sounds amazing. He also showed a interest in what is the song about (we had lyrics in a different language). So, I am recommending him for your drums recording & processing. Thanks John!
