Why you want to work with me

 

I know what it is like – I have the t-shirt.

 

I have had my own bands –  been in bands – had a couple of small record deals – had records out – put records out – played hundreds of gigs – had my heart broken by music and am still in love with it, and I am still here, and want to work with you.

 

    •  There is so much music out there, that it is  crucial to have a top quality recording.
    •  I make it a top priority to really listen to my clients, it is your music
    •  I  am interested in tuning into what people want their projects to sound like, and lending my expertise and support to help bring it to reality.
    • Sessions at Tigersonic are relaxed and friendly –  recording is hard work but it should also be fun, this reflects in your recorded performance.
    • Recording is not rocket science – I make sure my clients know what is going on, so they feel in control – this studio is anti “geek speak”

I am passionate about helping you capture your best performance and help you realise your creative vision.

 


The skinny on me

 

My studio is currently based in North London.

The studio is geared towards providing quality recordings for independent artists and bands.

I am a bass player and programmer and my music has been featured on national radio, tv and films.

I am mainly in the studio these days but I have gigged all over the u.k. and some in europe

 

I got bored of being patronised in studios so started to learn how to engineer.

 

As a sound engineer I have recorded everywhere from a portacabin in west London to Westminster abbey.

and I have worked with too many artists to mention – with genres stretching from grime to opera.I worked at lots of community studios before paying my dues as an assistant  to the award winning sound engineer Steve Parr at Hear no Evil Studio in Lilly Yard  (sadly there no longer)

 

 

 

I then went to work at Overtones studios in Holborn for many years – and finally learned my trade.  I had the opportunity to work  with Transglobal Underground, Barb Jungr, Katia Labeque, DJ Ritu, Cleveland Watkiss, Donaeo, DJ Pogo, Mat Fraser, MC Navigator, Daddy Freddy,  Alex Wilson, Visionary Underground, Fusion, Spyder Johnson, Asian Dub Foundation, Mathew Barley and many others.

 

As part of the Overtones team, I recorded live performances and gigs at Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Scala, Barbican, Royal Albert Hall and Westminster Abbey… with a few church halls and grimy pub gigs thrown in for good measure.

 

My Music I love all kinds of music but I make bass heavy, electronic organic dance music, often with an acoustic global twist.

Felix works fast, with full command of all her gear and a clinical by-the-book methodology which gives way to intuitive and musically sound solutions.I always felt confident and relaxed and the process, though long, was smooth and fun – to the extent that I’m truly looking forward to the next project, which is already partly recorded. I feel very fortunate, because this project has improved me as a musician – so I hope that many, many artists get to work with Felix at this level.
