Mixing at Svenska Grammofon Studion
Since last year, we have been inviting artists to come and record for our next Supreme Sessions album. This week, we were in another studio in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Svenska Grammofon Studion is a well established recording studio for many Scandinavian artists and a broadcasting platform for the Swedish National Radio. The studio is expansive, with a vast array of recording equipment, from vintage to state-of-the art, and everything in between.
Perhaps the jewel in the crown, the Neve console formerly owned by Queen, has been used for recordings by The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Miles Davis, Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder and Jonny Cash. With such an esteemed history, it feels like an honour to mix Jazz tracks for our album here.
We installed Parker Duo for playback so we would know exactly what we would be listening to. This feedback loop between the recording and product, allowed us to make precise adjustments to the mix.
Many thanks to the team at Svenska Grammofon Studion for their commitment and work—we had a great time.
