DAN AUSTIN

P R O D U C E R   M I X E R   E N G I N E E R   P R O G R A M M E R

Following several years of high-level engineering, programming and mixing for producers like Steve Osborne and Gil Norton, directly with artists on a variety of projects ranging from PIXIES to B52s from AFI to SURFER BLOOD, from MAXIMO PARK to BIFFY CLYRO and MASSIVE ATTACK. Dan’s early days credits in his own right were with bands which really started to set the scene for the kind of producer he wanted to be - bands like PEOPLE IN PLANES, OCEANSIZE and COOPER TEMPLE CLAUSE who were edgy and different.  

 

Dan’s ability to cover all bases in the studio - to be both the highly energetic and the diplomatic producer, to work incredibly quickly getting sounds as an engineer and ideas as a programmer, and being able to deliver both brave and focused mixes - meant that word spread quickly about his work and the producer he was becoming.

 

Dan Austin's next productions started to get him some acclaim too - DOVES’ Kingdom of Rust and two albums by CHERRY GHOST, the Ivor-winning A Thirst For Romance and the beautiful follow-up Beneath This Burning Shoreline as well as his work on JIMI GOODWIN's solo debut Odludek.

 

Since then he’s remained as enthusiastic about working with earlier stage artists - SLOTFACE's ’ Try not to freak out’ album, SHADOWLARK’s  See Each Other Right Ep,  SHE MAKES WAR Eps and album and NINTH WAVE’s New Kind of Ego EP  - as he is with more experienced bands who want a new take on things.

 

He works from a variety of cost-effective but brilliant production rooms around the UK (notably Vada, Monnow Valley and Eve but is incredibly open and excitable about new spaces, other locations and countries too!). He tends to mix at his own Soundhorn studio in the Southwest UK.

 

It’s also no mistake that bands who last worked with him as an engineer and mixer earlier in his career are now coming back to him for his fresh approach and energy. His production of MALLORY KNOX ’s last Giving It Up album (which was one of Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac’s Hottest Records) paved the way for his being asked to work on YOUMEATSIX ’s ’ VI’ album and  TWIN ATLANTIC’s forthcoming album - but this time as producer.   He’s also recently found time to produce a debut album for NINTH WAVE titled ‘Half Pure’ and a new album for PRETTY VICIOUS, as well as taking on mix projects such as LOA STATE and Sony newcomers EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Dan is on fire right now….
