2009 – 2nd Quarter Update

Posted on 03. Jul, 2009 by in News

What an amazing spring/summer it’s been so far here at Euphonic Masters! Brad was asked to master the DJ Ammo remix of the new Black Eyed Peas hit single ‘Boom Boom Pow’ (iTunes store link here) for Interscope Records – this remix is insane! Euphonic was also chosen to master Alison Krauss’s new greatest hits collection, titled ‘Essential’, for Rounder Records. It was decided that we should work off the original source tapes and remaster the collection from the ground up in order to allow every track to sound as good as it can – the results were worth it!

Virgin Records artists Saving Abel dropped off their new acoustic EP to be mastered – this one is awesome! Produced, engineered and mixed by uber-talent Skidd Mills, it contains some of their most beloved tracks, such as ‘Addicted’ and ‘Drowning Face Down’ as well as a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’. Ardent Music is back as a record label! The first release is Jump Back Jake’s “Brooklyn Hustle / Memphis Muscle”, produced, engineered and mixed by the extraordinary Pete Matthews. Congratulations to Ardent, Jump Back Jake, and Pete for such an historic release! Long time friends and clients Sister Hazel chose Brad to master their new studio album, titled ‘Release’. This one is due in stores on August 18th, be sure to check it out!

Brilliant singer / songwriter John Hampson had Euphonic master his new solo album, titled ‘Shiny New Album’ featuring the new single ‘How Much’ – this album is chock-full of great songs and performances – highly recommended. Hit pop / rock duo Aranda has Brad master their new single ‘Why You Wanna Bring Me Down’ which was chosen for use as the theme song for the WWE Bash – congrats to Aranda!

Jazz sax great Jeff Kashiwa had Euphonic master his new greatest hits album, released on Native Language. This is a great retrospective collection of Jeff’s work, definitely worth giving a listen! Brad was once again brought on board to master a new Cherry Poppin’ Daddies album, ‘The Skankin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies’ the long-awaited collection of their Ska material. Definitely worth checking out!

Jd Webb sent his upcoming album and EP (as well as his first single) to Euphonic for the final polish. The songs were superbly mixed by Claudio Cueni. Brad was also chosen to put the final polish on the new studio album by The Clarks, titled ‘Restless Days’ which was recorded and mixed by Sean McDonald at Sofa King Music Services. The album has been well-received, climbing the Billboard Top 200 as well as debuting at #7 on the Billboard Top Internet Albums chart – congratulations to The Clarks and Sean for the effort! Every once in a while a band comes along that rocks you to your foundation – I had that pleasure recently while working with such a band – The Missionary Position – who offer an intoxicating blend of great songs, inspiring performances and rich sonic textures. You need to check these guys out, truly a special group.

Of course, this is just a small sample of the projects we’ve worked on in the last few months – there’s no way we could fit it all here!

Also, here are a few sessions pics taken recently, we hope to include more of these over time:
