Mixing, Mastering, Producer

FPPA on SoundBetter

My aim is to work with like-minded creatives to capture the vibes, energy, feel and excitement of their music by using all of the techniques at my disposal, and to make the best possible sounding recording.

Hi, Im Yael "Grave Clave" Mothes, a music producer, mixer and drummer based in Bordeaux, France. Over the past 10 years or so I’ve worked closely in the fields of rock, punk, hardcore, pop, jazz, electro, and their respective sub genres, to make some pretty cool sounding records.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with Sour Eyes, Seven-Pointed Star, Burning Fight, Pessac Jazz Band, Looking Up, Neeru, Ceïba, Jeanadou, Hap Bazard and more.

Interview with FPPA

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I'm working with - ProTools HD - Avid I/O 192 - Lavry Blue etc...

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

  4. A: A little trick I did to increase the attack on the bass drum on a hardcore metal project. I taped two credit cards -one visa, the other MasterCard, it's really important- on the head where the bats are supposed to hit. I placed one sm57 in front of the head and recorded it with the other mics. I mixed all that with the rest of the kick mics and the result is really amazing. That's it !
