If you cannot wait for my services below are some Mastering Studios I recommend.

Red Dons DHoT

Mixing the Red Dons “Dead Hand of Tradition” LP on Taken By Surprise and Deranged Records.

“Five years after their seminal “Fake Meets Failure” LP, Red Dons return with their junior album “The Dead Hand of Tradition,” set to be released August 10th on  Taken By Surprise Records in Europe and later this summer by Deranged Records in North America.

A lot has happened in those five years.

Two of the band’s core members Douglas Burns and Hajji Husayn left their hometown Portland, Oregon behind, for Chicago and London. They recorded and released a slew of singles on labels like Grave Mistake and Dirtnap (including a collaboration with TV Smith of UK punk legends The Adverts). Despite the distance between them, they’ve managed to tour regularly in North America and Europe.

In January this year they reconvened in Portland to record “The Dead Hand of Tradition” at Buzz Or Howl Studios, the same establishment where they recorded the album’s predecessor. “The Dead Hand of Tradition” features ten new tracks of their signature dark, driving, melodic punk rock sound. The formula of their distinctive songwriting hasn’t changed, but has matured as a result of having five more nomadic years under their belts. These new experiences have only added to the themes of alienation, emigration, and loss present in their music.

With Red Dons stalwart Richard Joachim on drums and recent recruit Ruby Sparks of The Stops (Dirt Cult Records / Sabotage Records) on guitar, the band just finished a Midwest / Canadian tour including an appearance at the Ottawa Explosion Fest last month and is returning to Europe for five weeks in the fall.

Pre-order limited white vinyl HERE!”


Mastering SPELLS “Jet Set b/w iA Huevo!” on Snappy Little Numbers.

“SLN-118 features two of SPELLS’ most vaction-y rock blasts to date on classic cassette tape with download code.”

Mastering Küken “s​/​t” on Bachelor Records.

PITCHFORK: “This is well-written, tightly performed rock’n’roll at its most efficient. On each song, they establish a strong hook over two minutes, and then they’re done”

No Form

Mastering No Form 12″ on Muscle Horse Records.

“A boundary-pushing record from the North of England. Bathing in the murk, devoid of light, it invokes a dark atmosphere that has little to do with any gothic plod or metal pose. This is punk, as antagonistic and cleansing as it ever can be. NO FORM’s notorious live power is finally captured on this, their first record, with four shorter pulsating numbers on Side A and one long jam on Side B that approaches the outer limits. Shrill, disconcerting guitar leads and tormented vocals slither over an affirmative pummel that exists at the meeting point between outlier hardcore punk – SIEGE/UNITED MUTATION/GISM – and post-punk/proto-industrial at its most confrontational – SPK/CABARET VOLTAIRE/GOOD MISSIONARIES. Deceptively catchy thrashing coexists with sinister, siren-call sax that evokes THROBBING GRISTLE. This is music for the perennially despondent. Music for the subconscious, not the fashion conscious. This is music that could have been the soundtrack to the Blood Garden in JG Ballard’s ‘High Rise’. This is music as life ritual, to be listened to by all or none.” (Rob Tyers)

Crimson Scarlet

Remastering Crimson Scarlet “Collection: 2011-2014 LP” on Symphony of Destruction Records.

“Deathrock punk from California! This LP is a collection their two 7″, the tape + one unrelease song! 350 copies // Hand Screenprinted Cover + Insert. New mastering by Daniel Husayn / North London Bomb Factory.”

Mastering Shrapnel “Frenzied State” on Quality Control HQ.

“UKHC. Leeds’ finest sons burst out with a demo that showcased UKHC via Breakdown ’87 with English accents and proceeded to turn many heads. The new record goes down the route of Rest in Pieces, Leeway, Killing Time with the addition of Connor Hehir on second guitar. No doubt pits will be raged and conquered.”

Mastering Flemmings.

Taken from Vortexas:

“Danish old-school pop punkers partially based in London. Flemmings is a trio consisting of Nielsen on guitar and vocals along with two London friends. They deal in a sort of hypermelodic pop punk that hearkens back to the golden days of college rock. I get a distinctly Americanophile vibe quite different from what their South-London origin might suggest (but hey, Yuck hails from London as well and if there ever was a band sounding more American…) They’ve released an extremely affecting self-recorded cassette than be be bought on their bandcamp.”

Sioux Dead Ramones

Mastering The Dead Ramones & The Sioux Split 7″ on 213 Records, Acide Folik, Deaf Death Husky Records, Donnez-Moi Du Feu, No Way Asso, Offside Records, Ratta-Tat-Tat Label.

“Two of the best france bands in a split ep. The Sioux sounds like a raw version of The Observers with female vocals and Dead Ramones sound post punk ala Belgrado”

The Bad Machine

Mastering The Bad Machine “II” on Ghoulhouse Records.

“The Bad Machine started in Feb. of 2010 and is comprised of members from L.A. bands The Switch-Ups, LA DRUGZ, and Can Of Beans. Their folk/rock/indie sound is filled with haunting tones as well as catchy hooks with an ambient feel reminiscent of such acts as My Bloody Valentine, Band of Horses, and Sonic Youth. Songs are influenced by life, death, drug abuse, love and heartbreak. The Bad Machine’s sound is a fresh take on these genre’s and a very promising one.

The Bad Machine hails from San Pedro, CA with a cosmic sound and a stellar style. Combining out of this world guitars, colossal rhythm, phenomenal vocals, and buttery songwriting, the band has been touching butts on the local scene since 1942. The Bad Machine covers a wide range of styles, and is influenced by everyone from Electric Light Orchestra to Wham!. Check out the Bad Machine rocking your local bop hall this summer!”
